Was late for check in after a night flight with my family. The queue was long with a tour group from Taiwan. Waiting for nearly 15 minutes before our turn to check in, despite the group were still distributing their keys.
The assistant manager from front desk saw us and immediately helped us the check in, unfortunately the hotel was full with that tour group for our rooms. Without hesitation, he upgraded my family to suite rooms! What a good start for our revisit trip to Chiang Mai since 23 years ago. Thank you so much, Le Meridien!
The suite rooms are amazing big, which are situated at the four corners of each floor. Each suite room consist of a separate shower room, toilet cubicle, walk in wardrobe plus a squarish bathtub facing the city or the mountain. With comfy king size bed and 2 large LCD TVs facing the room and living hall, plus full amenities available such as espresso machine, 4 complimentary bottles of water, what can you ask for after a tiring flight from our work place in Singapore directly to this luxury hotel in Chiang Mai?
The gym and swimming pool, though a little cold even in a hot summer in April, the view towards the mountain is something to die for. I was fully mesmerised by the view each time I used the pool and the gym, and recharged quickly from the hectic itinerary in Chiang Mai over the weekend. Please, do use the pool if you have the time!
And the location, it is simply centralised and convenient with starbuck, burger king, macdonald around, not to forget the night market right at the doorstep of the hotel. Everywhere seemed to be so convenient. The building is prominent so you will not get lost even you are slightly away from the corner of Chiang Mai and you can find the direction back to the hotel easily.
The breakfast was one of the best breakfast I would say I have in Thailand, yes Thailand. Hot american, continental, and 5 types of juices to choose from, it helps us to recharge our energy every morning. Good choice and wide varieties, and service is good with a smile always.
Though you need to pay for the internet in the room, but I am sure you can use it at the lobby for an hour when you collect the password slip from the concierge team. Except for one thing, the hotel will turn off their aircon at late night after midnight, so it will be a little warm when you intend to use it at that wee hour. Notice there are mosquitos flying into the lobby, gotten a few bites on my skin but that is not a problem to me.
I have recommended this hotel to my friends and I am sure I will return again. This is definitely my choice when I revisit for sure!
