It's my first visit to Chiang Mai and Holiday Inn gave quite an impression... and easy access to late-night snack. I got a room on the top floor and the view is amazing. The room itself was comfortable and the bathroom was clean. The receptionists were friendly and efficient. Breakfast was great, especially when you got to eat outside with the view to the river. It's a little hard to get the attention of the waiters for coffee refill (they did a good job asking you for the first cup). Food was good and the variety was satisfying.
They don't have a lot of seating on the lobby though, so I often find it hard when I have to wait for my group to assemble (and I'm already outside the breakfast area). Having room on the top floor means waiting for the elevator. But it's worth the wait. You have to take tuktuk to go around the city... the concierge will help you if you need to visit the Chiang Mai night market. In my room key sleeve there's a card with the hotel name and address in Thai, if you ever get lost, you just need to show it to the tuktuk driver.
But if you're just hungry, there're street vendors just walking distance of the hotel.
I enjoyed my visit here. Although it's quite far from the city. But this time, it was for business. If I'm travelling with family for a vacation, the location might be an issue.
