Le Méridien Hotels

Midcentury design is almost as beloved in Southern California as sunshine and tacos. Now, with the opening of Le Méridien Pasadena Arcadia Hotel in June 2021, there’s a chic property that combines the modern design aesthetic with the Méridien brand’s European heritage. There are programs that offer both high tea and highball cocktails; a grand bar, Longitude 118; poolside eats at the outdoor heated pool; and Mélange, a traditional chophouse infused with Asian flavors. Located across the street from Santa Anita Park (guests can enjoy behind-the-scenes tours of the historic racetrack simply by presenting their Unlock Art room key), the 234-room property has 14,000 square feet of meeting and event space spanning five separate rooms—three are private dining rooms—as well as over 1,800 square feet of indoor pre-function space and an expansive event lawn.
