Starwood has opened the doors of Le Méridien Taipei, the group’s first Le Méridien hotel in Taiwan. The new 160-room hotel is located in the Xinyi District of Taipei, steps away from many local cultural offerings.

“We are excited about the debut of Le Méridien in Taipei,” said Daven Tai, General Manager of Le Méridien Taipei. “Through our extensive and curated contemporary art events and innovative cuisine, Le Méridien Taipei will soon be the creative hub for Taipei, bringing a rich cultural experience to Taipei and inspiring our guests and local community to discover a new perspective.”

The 160 guestrooms at the hotel feature comfortable sitting and work areas, the Le Méridien signature bed, state-of-the art technology, and elegant bathrooms with rainforest shower and separate bath tub.

Le Méridien Taipei offers a range of dining options, and is aiming to surpasses the traditional five-star dining experience through partnerships with three-star Michelin Chef Jean Georges Vongerichten and acclaimed mixologist Ernesto Lechthaler. My Humble House features traditional Cantonese cuisine in a casual and sophisticated setting, while international and local flavours abound at Latest Recipe. At ChocoArt, guests will discover the pleasures of chocolate in surprising new ways with its impressive array of chocolate, baked goods, coffee and even body lotions and candles.

While taking a break from exploring the dynamic Xinyi District that surrounds the hotel, guests of Le Méridien Taipei as well as local community have ample options to socialize, from its lounge bar Latitude 25 that features live entertainment and is an ideal locale to pass the time with friends to its all-day dining at “Latest Recipe”. On the fifth floor, chic lounge bar Quube is one of the few bars in Taipei with an outdoor seating area, allowing guests to unwind and enjoy the night scene of Taipei city.

To stay in shape and keep in form guests can enjoy the indoor heated pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, and well-equipped health club.

 With over 1,700 square meters of meeting and function space, Le Méridien Taipei also serves as an ideal venue for business gatherings, weddings, creative meetings and private events.

Le Méridien Taipei is centrally located at 38 Song Ren Road in Xinyi District. Just a few steps from Le Méridien Taipei are some of the most recognized landmarks in Taiwan, including Taipei 101, currently the second tallest building in the world, the Taipei World Trade Center, and an array of boutiques and department stores.
