My wife and I stayed for 8 nights with our 3 children (5, 3 and 3 months) in a deluxe suite with connecting deluxe room (the connection effectively made a very spacious 2 bedroom apartment) and can say after 5 trips to various parts of Thailand that this hotel has a lot to recommend about it.
The service from the staff is up to the highest standard that you would expect from top hotels (it is definately up there with the Peninsula in Bangkok).
Rooms were very large (particularly the suite), both thoughtfully and tastefully decorated, and surgically clean (as was the whole hotel). Delightful large bathrooms with over bath TVs.
Overlooking the river, the hotel has a very nice relaxed atmoshpere. Whilst it is not quite in the centre of the action, a ride in the ubiquitous 'red taxis', was never more than about 50 baht for the 5 of us and 5-10 minutes to anywhere. Also after a hard day of sightseeing the tranquility of the property made a pleasant and welcome contrast.
The breakfast selection whilst not quite as extensive as we have had in larger hotels, was more than adequate with again excellent service from the staff.
Room service and the hotel restaurants we tried were on paar with similar hotels we had stayed at previously.
Overall, we would have to say that the property is well worth a look and if we returned to Chinag Mai, it would be hard to find a reason not to stay again.
