It's hard to believe that an international chain like Starwoods puts its name to this property. This is a middle-of-the-road hotel whose sole feature is a view over the river. Previous reviewers who were offended by the shanties will no doubt be delighted to hear that they've all been cleared as part of the extensive riverbank redevelopment project.

I should state that there's nothing especially wrong with Le Meridien. Generally speaking, things like disfunctional elevators, dodgy smoke detectors, jaded furnishings, and the tiny balcony completely covered in bird droppings are just minor annoyances.

Low scores are reserved for the following:

- Extremely limited, unattractive fare for breakfast; low-grade evening buffet (how can anyone make Indian food look like goo and have none of the usual aromas?)
- Expensive internet - INR 650 (c. $13) per day plus another 10% tax
- Lack of guest amenities
- Run-down and demoralised feel to the hotel, as though it's awaiting demolition to cash in on the riverside project rather than renovation

The room was adequate but more like a motel than a hotel. Bathroom was also adequate, no hint of luxury. I had a room to the rear of the hotel with a view over the river. With blue skies, the rising and setting sun gave a beautiful orange glow to this broad expanse and its lightly-coloured urban setting. This was undoubtedly a high-point, you could forget the rest (except for the pigeons, who are determined to peck or crash their way into the room).

The hotel is seriously overstaffed, in the usual manner of too many people with too little to do. It's worst in the restaurant where they literally get in your way as you are trying to get at the food, while the suits effectively block the entrance while striking their pose. I must acknowledge that there are a few waiters who seem to do most of the work, who are busy, helpful. A few of the younger reception staff are also enthusiastic and have a willing, problem-solving attitude.

For local transport, try the 3-wheelers (green and yellow, catch them outside the gate. Their meter (left of the driver, old odometer-style) measures distance, they have a set fare card (usually well hidden in their sun-visor) from which the fare is calculated when you arrive. Its around 50 Rupees for 10 km - i.e. about $1 for almost anywhere you want to go in the inner or middle city. It all seems very chaotic, but relax, trust that it works and let it wash over you rather than be a white-knuckle ride. It's a quick way to get around and get the feel of the place.

This hotel needs a total makeover.

Phew...thats how I want to start my review, in despair ! I want to make sure the CEO of SPG stays here for a night. Then am sure he will walk out with the brand too along with his luggage ! It's a sham operating under such a prestigious name. If some one checks in here whose never been to any Le Meridien property ever, am sure he will hate the Brand for life and will become an un paid PR Manager to convince who ever he knows to develop hatred with the entire chain !!!

The Hotel looks like its a stone age property. Very small gate for entrance. No proper parking place, the staff are lethargic. Food is OK. Cell phone signal vanishes the moment you enter the room. AC doesnt work properly. Looks as if like there is lot of negative energy doing its round in the property. Lift has a mood of its own. Better take the stairs. Bungee Jumping is a cake walk compared to the ride in the lift ! We spent a whopping 2 nights here like we were dealing with a pebble in our shoes ! The inertia of frustration was so high.

You will feel perfectly happy in this hotel only when you are some kind of a mad scientist working 24x7 trying to find the formula to turn peanuts into petrol ! Else save the agony. My partners retort is still reverberating in my ears. We went to Taj Gateway for a coffee on our way to airport to fly out of Ahmedabad. And she said - so you wanted to torture me further ? with a sarcy smile on her face ! Maan, we were silent throughout our flight :-( Arghhhh !

I was on an official visit to Ahmedabad. In the midst of busy and hectic schedule, the hotel offered a perfect mix of excellent service, food with variety and options for relaxation! The start of the day with good breakfast and end of the day with spa and dinner made my trip very enjoyable and memorable!

Room Tip: Don't worry all rooms are with good location!

Great hotel, very good services, cordial staff, very hospitable.. felt at home. food in da restraunt is amazing.. . a pool to drown all ur stress. well maintained spacious rooms. . they wl provide u evrything u need . The food at the hotel restaurant was very good. The only slight issue we had was trying to confirm the airport pickup. We had to call/e-mail several times, but it worked out fine.
