This is the only 4 or 5 star rated hotel in Maehongson. It is the most grand hotel in the area. It is large, majestic looking, the grounds are impeccably maintained, the staff are friendly and helpful. There is a pool available only to guests (no locals allowed), and a gym.
The rooms are large, although outdated as the hotel hasn't been upgraded for quite some time and even the televisions are the old LCD type. There is a shower/bath however, which is a rarity in Thailand, and the added bonus is that you don't have a wet floor after your shower.
There is a balcony attached to each room & there are only 2 floors.
Tours can be organised in the lobby.
However, I would suggest eating elsewhere. The restaurant is beautiful and overlooks the gardens, but on the occasions I have eaten here, I have found the food was pre-cooked, stored in the fridge and heated up in the microwave, and was still cold. I no longer eat here. Even the breakfasts can be quite lame, unless its included in your price.
It is quite a distance to town, but there is a mini-bus that takes guests in and out. Its too far to walk, however. Although there are 2 scooter for hire shops in town, one of which is near the airport, but the Imperial will pick you up from the airport.
It is the most beautiful hotel in town.
