This is the first time we were both able to get an "over 60s" discount (so it only cost €4 instead of 8 with a free booklet and we got to keep the audio guide lanyard!)

A funicular took us to the top and we walked to Auerhahn restaurant, which offered great views of the town below. I had been waiting to have black forest cake in the Black Forest, but I decided to have goulash soup instead. I didn't miss out though, because Frank and Max both had the black forest cake, one with alcohol and one without. We caught the furnicular back down ...
... The annual Oechsle Festival was on, which is similar to Oktoberfest but with the focus on wine. So we had to stop for a sausage...or two. Then we caught a bus to a suburb nearby to meet Frank's cousin Elisabeth and her family, who own a lotto store. (We bought a ticket and doubled our money!)

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Meridien Stuttgart
Worth every penny
I went here with my boyfriend and it was fantastic! The rooms were beautiful and quiet (even though on a busy main road) and there are several U and S-Bahn stations within 5 minutes walk, which will take you right into the centre of Stuttgart. The swimming pool and spa were difficult to find, but gorgeous once you got there. The breakfast was delicious (especially the pastries) and the coffee was the best I've ever tasted! I would recommend this to anyone.
Very dissappointed, we arrived at the hotel at 5 pm coming from another European country by flight. At the front desk we were told that we couldnt get a room because we were so late!! We booked the hotel by phone and email 2 months in advance, we were never asked for a creditcard but got a very nice email that the manager were looking so much to see us in september. Upon arrival we were told you should have given us your creditcard numer! After lot of discussion we got a room for 1 night but we had booked 2. The manager and the clerk were very unprofessional and at the hotelbar we found out that they had, had a problem with the booking so we were not they only couple in trouble. The girl at the front desk even told us "we have never had so many people at the hotel before"
Have just stayed at the Meridian for 4 nights with a trip to Heidelberg midway staying over night, this was no problem for The Concierge who kept the bulk of our luggage safely and ensured it was deposited in our new rooms on our return. Hotel facilties excellent, indoor pool mostly empty, fabulous breakfasts , obliging staff, no complaints whatsoever. Welldone !
We got a nice rate here from Expedia - requested an extra bed for our 5 year old - no problem (and no add'l charge). This hotel is like a Westin in the USA - modern, great bed, hi-tech. Flat screen TVs in rooms, great a/c, very nice bathrooms. Location is fantastic. Highly recommended.
Also, there's a great bakery behind the hotel - easy walk for breakfast. Go up the stairs, then take a soft right on Urban Strasse. A few doors down on the right.
Expensive but worth it for the spa alone
This hotel is across a park from the train station. If you are travelling Europe and have time for a rest from heavy sightseeing, this is the place to go. The pool, jacuzzi, steam room, sauna, showers were superb. The breakfast buffet included champage and fresh squeezed orange juice--for mimosas if you like. There were 5 kinds of honey, huge selection of meats, cheeses, fruits, breads etc. The rooms were large and comfortable. Expensive but worth it.
You wont find better in Stuttgart
By Far the best Hotel in the City, it oozes Class, get a room off the Road side and your in the Classisest most fashioable Hotel in town
First I received a very warm and friendly welcome. My room was not large, but very stylish, a beautiful design and also very functional. For a rate of Euro 125.00 breakfast was included - and it was fabulous, choices galore! Food is very good in the restaurant and room service, too. The spa is even better than the pictures look. I loved it! The gym is nice, new equipment and a spacious room - and downstairs the pool and the whirlpool are decorated very zen... what a treat!! I doubt that anywhere in the US you can find such a beautiful hotel for such a great rate! ( Or even double the rate!) And in additon you are a 5 minute away from the castle and the center of town.
If I ever go back to Stuttgart, I know I'll be back in the Meridien!
This will be a great business option in Stuttgart when they work out some of the problems they are having, many of which can be attributed to the fact that it has been open only for a few months. I stayed on the executive club floor in March, 2005. The facilities (rooms, spa, business center and restaurant) are very nice and the location is very convenient. The concierges were very good. Some problems were: room service, wake-up call reliability and housekeeping. Twice my breakfast card was not taken from my doorknob. Twice I received a jar of jam with breakfast that had been opened and half eaten(!) I booked three spa treatments and one had to be rescheduled to a later time and one had to be cancelled (by them!) Housekeeping did the bare minimum and would not accept the tip I kept leaving. Most of the staff were cheery and friendly, but some were sullen. Despite this, the hotel has a lot of promise and offers good facilities and a nice restaurant at reasonable business rates.
We went there just 5 days after its been opened (Previously an Intercontinental Hotel). Staff there were very friendly, polite and helpful. The room we had was excellent, very stylish, minimalist and modern. We liked the French Restaurant there, the food and service was always first rate. We highly recommend their Sunday Brunch which is very good value. You get a wide selection of food which is on par to top restaurants, you can also choose from a wide variety of drinks (included in the price) including champagne.
Excellent Location! The hotel located across from a large park and with in walking distace of the " old town area" The Porsche and Mercedes museums are 15 minute drives from the hotel. Hotel offers internet acess trough the business center for a reasonable rate.
