Le Meridien Philadelphia

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Le Meridien Philadelphia offers an architecturally striking design with historical features, modern amenities and décor, a location in the heart of Center City convenient to the shopping district, world-renowned museums and the city’s best restaurants, along with unparalleled culinary creations from our Executive Chef and impeccable service that is promised at every turn. We have the experience and the expertise to ensure your event is hosted effortlessly and stylishly.

Our exceptional service is continuous from the moment you arrive until the final farewell. Our Executive Chef, Andy Matulaitis, will delight your guests with a culinary experience that rivals some of the best restaurants in Philadelphia. Striving to source local, sustainable and organic ingredients whenever possible, we pride ourselves in preparing nearly everything in-house, made fresh daily, even down to our peanut butter and ice cream!

We are the perfect venue for any style wedding, from a laid-back minimalistic approach to an elegant black-tie affair. Le Meridien Philadelphia is the perfect size venue for an intimate wedding or a larger celebration with up to 170 guests.

Our event space features a mix of “old meets new” with the beautiful charm of the early 1900’s, perfectly blended with contemporary touches throughout the hotel. We are located just one block from popular City Hall and Love Park, recognized as the top locations in Philadelphia for photo opportunities. Surrounded by the original, exposed brick façade, our fifth- floor Atrium boasts a 75’ glass ceiling and is certainly our most unique, contemporary space for a cocktail reception. The Abele Library features the original Tiger Oak walls, built-in bookshelves, two working fireplaces, and stunning views of City Hall as your backdrop. Our Trumbauer Ballroom showcases the original plasterwork, white canvas walls that highlight your lighting design, wrought iron chandeliers enveloped by oversized lampshades, plus a stage for your entertainment’s performance.

Le Méridien Philadelphia creates a culturally refined and stimulating atmosphere, which inspires guests to celebrate the unexpected. They will discover more than just a new destination. They will discover a new way of life. Make your unforgettable day a reality with Le Meridien Philadelphia!

Catering exclusively prepared by Le Meridien only, with the exception of kosher and Indian catering.


We had our dream wedding here at the Le Meridien Philadelphia. It is the perfect location for a chic city wedding in the heart of downtown, walking distance to so many great Philly destinations. What made our wedding extra special was the highly attentive hotel staff - they were in tune with our every want and need and made each of our guests feel like VIP's. Our Catering Sales Manager Amanda C. worked with us on every detail of the wedding to make sure it was just flawless. Also on staff that snowy evening was Adam D., the Banquet Manager; Sonny I., the Executive Chef, and Michael Y., the General Manager - they all made sure the event was perfect! I highly recommend a Winter Wedding for any brave bride who wants magical and cinematic wedding photos in the snow. And to me, the best hotel in the city to compliment that is the warm and sophisticated Le Meridien Philadelphia
