Loved Le Meridien! Spacious room with a great work space! Brightly lit bathroom with plenty of counterspace, Japanese soaking tub that came up to my knees, and separate shower. Yes, there is a control panel which lets you turn all the lights on/off, control room temperature, set your alarm clock, and allows light up an electronic "Do Not Disturb" message on your doorbell. Bed was very comfortable and nice towels. Staff is extremely friendly, helpful, knowledgable, and courteous. Room service was good quality and prompt. Fitness center equipped with 2 treadmills, one elliptical trainer, one bike, weights, and some older model machines; towels and Arrowhead water available. There's a back elevator which brings you close to the gym so you don't have to walk across the lobby in your sweaty togs! Great location on Restaurant Row next to Morton's and across from Woo Lae Oak and Fogo de Chao. Within walking distance to the Beverly Center and the Beverly Connection (but who walks in LA?!?). The Grove, Whole Foods, Hard Rock Cafe, and Jerry's Deli are nearby. I would love to return!!!
Pros: Amazing room and bathroom, great location, nice staff
Cons: Room opened to a patio so everyone could easily see into room
