Having reviewed many hotels in Thailand, I'd like to qualify this review by stating that I didn't actually put head to pillow at the 137 Pillars but rather, I attended a charity concert at the hotel. I've visited quite a few hotels in Chiang Mai without having stayed but this is the first time I've bothered to review one. The 137 Pillars House's beauty, sophistication, and warmth compelled me to write about it. Words can barely describe the place but I'll try. Architectural gem, oozing with history, dizzyingly romantic, harmony with natural surroundings, thai warmth at its best, smiles, smiles, smiles. Clearly, the staff is very well trained in the gracious treatment of its guests and I experienced this from the busboy who cleaned tables, to the serving staff, to the front desk personnel, and finally, from the gentlemanly and cordial General Manager, Manfred Ilg. I have an apartment in Chiang Mai but I wouldn't hesitate to stay, or heartily recommend, the 137 Pillars House.
