My wife and I stayed at Le Meridien for 4 nights ---- we have to say this hotel is absolutely fantastic in everything ---- Location, Room, Service and Staff more on that later. We booked promotion rate on Le Meridien website stay 4 pay for 3 nights which offered very good value for money in a high standard 5 stars hotel. We booked Royal Club Room but the hotel occupancy very low so they upgraded us to Junior Suite which was brilliant. We had a perfect stay for our first time in Chiang Mai.
Arrival: we booked the limousine transfer so when we arrived at Chiang Mai Airport we met by Le Meridien Airport Rep. (Limousine cost THB 850 net per car/way) since we walk in to the lobby we knew that we chose the right hotel --- we've been escorted to check in at the Club Lounge on 21st floor --- very contemporary design which we are both like so perfect for us ---- checking is was smooth then she escorted us to our Junior Suite room on 18th floor room number 1834.
Room: Junior Suite # 1834 very big room over looking the city and mountain seperate bedroom --- very large bathroom section which included oversized bathtub over looking the city , big shower room , walk - in wardrobe and toilet. It has 2 big LCD TV both in the living room and bedroom. Coffee and tea making facilities as well as free drinking water.
Royal Club Lounge: on 21st floor serving breakfast from 06:00 - 11:00 or if you like big breakfast you can go down to Latest Recipe Restaurant (06:00 - 10:30) afternoon tea from 15:00 - 17:00 and happy hour with alcoholic drinks and snacks from 18:00 - 20:00. The lounge itself open from 06:00 - 23:00. We must say Club Lounge staff wer brilliant always willing to help you and make sure we are well look after. Can't see any negative at all.
Location: right in the middle of Night Bazaar so you can walk out of the hotel to buy something and also got lots of restaurants nearby. It is only 15 minutes from Chiang Mai Airport. Also very close to Doi Suthep Temple on the top of the mountain about 25 minutes which is the highlight of Chiang Mai City that you must visit.
Restaurant & Bar: We tried Latest Recipe Restaurant for dinner 1 night which was great food , ambiance & service but very quiet because hotel occupancy is too low and lots of restaurants to eat on your door step. We also had lunch twice at Latitude Bar next to Latest Recipe again great food and drink "Pad Thai with Prawns" very delicious. We went out to 2 different restaurants nearby --- one is Riverside Restaurant by Ping River nice but more for local people good price and another one we went to Daalabar Restaurant great ambiance good price but if you sit outside be careful mosquitoes.
Departure: It was smooth , luggage down with in 3 minutes and limousine waiting for us to take us to the airport.
Overall, fantastic stay ---- staff was absolutely brilliant , room was superb ---- no negative at all. Only one thing Chiang Mai is a one off destination so we won't be back but will reccommend to anyone to stay at Le Meridien Chiang Mai.
