I recently stayed 5 days at the Le Meridian and absolutely loved it. The location is, as far as I am concerned, the best in the city! It is located right across the street from a huge open air but covered produce market which you can spend a lot of time strolling through looking at the exotic fruits. Just to the left of the market is the pier where hundreds of people gather each night to watch the amazing sunsets and there are numerous seafood restaurants along the pier and across the street. If you plan on taking a tour to the small outlying islands the walk to the Jesselton pier is only 15 min away.
The rooms are spacious and comfortable and if you get one facing the water the views of the sunsets are outstanding! When booking, make sure to get a room with access to the lounge as they have a fantastic breakfast included which you can eat on the 14th floor with absolutely amazing views-this is a newly constructed part of the hotel and is a wonderful addition. They are currently working on a rooftop bar but for now they have a nice bar at the pool which serves really nice dinners and drinks. The pool is nice with views of the ocean and there is a gym with treadmills and other fitness equipment right next to pool.
Finally, and what made my stay extra special, was the absolutely outstanding staff. Special thanks to Vanessa Hii in the 14th floor lounge and Lintan at the front door.
