I have read some of the reviews on this hotel on trip advisor and thought of adding my review since I am a frequent visitor to India and Coimbatore in particular for business.
First of all I am not sure why this hotel is not the first on the list of hotels for Coimbatore.
I visited Coimbatore in Dec of 2011 for a last minute business trip and had booked at a local hotel, and was not so excited about the stay, however while the plane was circling prior to approach over the city I saw a large Le Meridien sign board on the ground and thought to call them once we land.
After landing called them and sure enough they had rooms available, so we cancelled our current reservation and went to the Le Meridien.
I have to say it is defiantly worth the change, the hotel was new, rooms are new and definately higher standards than anything in Coimbatore at the moment.
However as in new hotels, you have some glitches from time to time. For example, a friend traveling with us did not have hot water in his room, however the maintenance team rectified it in 10 mins after we placed the call to the front desk. Late at night I remembered to put my iPhone on charge and was screwing around with the plug and shorted something that led to my room's power breaker tripping. I called front desk and in 3 mins that maintenance guys were knocking at my door and got power running again.
Wifi also was supported through out the hotel,staff was friendly, I was locked out of my room for forgetting the keys and called the lobby from a friends room, the front desk person actual came up herself to give me a new key upstairs while I was waiting in front of my room (they knew me since I had checked in only an hour back).
Breakfast buffet had a huge selection of local and foriegn food.
In conclusion, if your going to Coimbatore this is the place to stay.
