Just got back from Chiang Mai last night. There are lots of hotels in every price range to choose from in Chiang Mai. What made me choose the U Chiang Mai was two specific offerings;
1. 24 hour checkout, which with a late flight arrival and departure time really benefited us. No wandering around town with bags on the last day.
2. Whenever/wherever breakfast. My husband and I always sleep in and miss breakfast. I get really frustrated with hotels that stop serving breakfast at 10am, which hardly seems right for people on vacation. We really enjoyed the ability to be as lazy as we like and still get breakfast - the coffee was lovely by the way.
So apart from the fun gimmicks of choosing your own pillow type and soap scents at booking, the reason I'll return to U Chiang Mai was the friendly generous service. Big smiles from everyone. When we were leaving one of the staff carried our bags for us out to the road because the Sunday market had blocked traffic from using the one in front of the hotel. He also waited with us until the taxi arrived and he saw us safely off. the bartender upstairs knows how to make a spot-on martini too (remarkably rare in Thailand) :)
We'll be back.
