Le Meridien opened their new property formally on 11.11.11 in Coimbatore and incidentally I chose to stay with them when I visited Coimbatore on 22nd/23rd November,2011.
The pluses now:
Very modern, very spacious rooms, spacious toilets, very good decor of the room as well as the Hotel as a whole.
It gives a magnificient view looking from the corridor down. A real big break-fast place with a good choice to suit anyone's taste.
Airport pick-up (depending on the tariff one chooses) with a welcome gesture of offering cold towel and water when you board the car at the Airport itself.
In all, it is a very refreshing addition to Coimbatore which lacks a 5 star Hotel.
Now the minuses:
The staff and the atmosphere could be more friendly!They tend to be stiff giving gestures of respect which could be easily changed to gestures of being friendly with politeness. Right from the Airport, reception at the portico, front-office,Restaurant- people seem to be a little stiff.
The Hotel is 6 kms on the opposite side to the city when one comes out of the Airport to the road leading to the city. It may be a problem for some people who have actual business in the city itself. But, the travel time could be only half an hour which seems to be ok compared to the travel time in other cities.
I am sure over some more months, this property wil be a preferred hotel for business travellers, especially the foreigners.
