I stayed here before and my first visit was by accident as my original booking in another location had been mislaid. From this accident began my love affair not only with Chiang Mai but also with the Holiday Inn.
Let me cut straight to the chase as I can only appreciate that after a while you may get bored hearing me rave about some big hotels. Hence, what’s so special here that I chose it as my favourite location?
Try booking a non smoking room from the 16th floor or higher and with a view over the river ping. At night, move your sofa by the window, switch off all the lights, open a bottle of wine, have some snacks at the ready and enjoy the city lights.
As for breakfast, I particularly liked the complete choice available here and the lovely setting by their terrace, which allows you to eat al fresco and enjoy the fresh air of a northern location, quite a start of the day compared to hectic Bangkok.
The complimentary drop off and pick up to the night markets is a must see in Chiang Mai. If you head to the markets, cancel that dinner booking as there is so much good food available that your belly will plead for mercy.
With regard to the rooms, I suspect that they have never changed the decoration here since I was in my nappies and that was a very long time ago. It may look somewhat tired but it is classic and super comfortable. I always get a good night sleep here.
