“Stylish hotel”
Reviewed 9 February 2013

Le Meridien Chiang Mai is a big and beautiful hotel, very nicely decorated and the facilities are outstanding (the gym is more than adequate and the pool is really an oasis, with a nice view on the mountains and a beautiful pool design).
I had breakfast and evening snacks in the lounge, which is just perfect - I highly recommend it if you can upgrade. Having breakfast in the lounge is much better than in the main restaurant (much more intimate, and great views), and the evening snacks and drinks are a perfect way to relax - both the food and the drinks are abundant.
I stayed in an executive suite - the layout is great, and there's a lovely corner bathtub with impressive views on Chiang Mai.
The staff was fantastic, very helpful and at hand. After checking in I had a small problem with my key (first it didn't work, then the door would not lock) and within minutes they solved any problem.
I didn't try the spa, but I trust it must be great. However, if you want to have a very good massage or spa treatment, Zabai is an exceptionally nice spa just a few minutes away and it will cost you a tenth of what you would pay at the hotel.
Just outside of the hotel there are also several places where you can have your laundry done - handy if you have a lot of clothes to wash.
Finally, the cocktails at the bar are worth exploring - they're really good!
A few minor points for the management to consider:
- The air conditioning is quite noisy. At night I would switch the one in the bedroom off and keep the one in the main room, and still the noise was quite high. I don't know if the noise level is the same in every room, but I found it extremely high for an a/c system
- The hotel does not offer the "make a green choice" option (forgoing housekeeping in exchange for a money or points voucher). They should, just like the Le Meridien in Chiang Rai
- The sink water pressure is so high that it splashes and splatters everywhere if you put your hands in the sink. Maybe the hotel should consider installing those little rings that mix water and air to soften the stream of water (and save water too).

There are several small "boutique" hotels in Chiang Mai, so if that is what you are looking for, the Le Meridien might look like a big corporate hotel; but in fact it is a wonderful, stylish hotel where you feel at home both on business or on holiday.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a room with lounge access - it's totally worth it.

This hotel is right in the heart of the night market and very close to everything in the city that you may want to see. The staff at the hotel was great and offered great customer service. They made us feel welcome and always had a smile to offer. Our room was a bit smaller than we expected but was clean and the beds small but comfortable. We had a room with double beds that were really more like a single bed made for one person. Free Wi fi in lobby but would love to have the option to pay for it and use it in our room. Smaller pool area but lovely.

We had a great time at this hotel. We got upgraded to a suite, which was amazing. It was spacious, modern, and had extra touches like an expresso maker. The hotel is right across the street from the night market, which made for very convenient shopping. It was also about a 5 min tuktuk to the riverfront area, which was full of restaurants and bars. This is a large hotel, so may feel a little impersonal, but we loved our room and the location.

This is a fantastic hotel. The rooms are lovely and the views are amazing. Breakfast was very good and they have a very fancy gym to burn it off. Slight annoyances that stop it being the best hotel on my trip were the freezing cold pool and having to beg for 1 hour free wifi which can only be used in the lobby. Nobody was in the pool, which is a shame as it would have been perfect after traipsing over the lovely city all day.

We were so impressed with this hotel it was just perfect. We had the cusine package which is half board. The room was great with a large window sofa with a terrific view from the 18th floor.
It was the little extras like an iron and ironing board, ground coffee beans,speakers in the bathroom, huge shower and a bath even bathroom scales. It was immaculate.
The breakfast and evening meal were superb, carvery every evening, and deserts to die for. We had been on a celebrity ship for a month and we have to say the food was a match for a 5* ship. The staff were lovely, in every department, so very kind and attentive. At breakfast you can have a cappuccino made to order which was the best. The hotel is in a perfect position right on the street of the night market.
Overall if you are intending to stay in Chiang Mai this is the perfect place to stay. This is a genuine review.

PROS
Clean and big rooms.
Power shower - the water pressure was just right.
Housekeeping was very attentive
Pool overlooks the city. Not the best view, but still worth checking out. The temperature is freezing though.
Lots of good restaurants nearby.
Attentive staff.

CONS
Wifi is expensive. It's free at the lobby, though.
Slow elevators

Apart from the wifi issue, I'd recommend this for a stay. I stayed for 2 nights and have no major complaints. I had no time to check out the breakfast, but from what I've heard from the other guests, it was worth checking out.
