Rated 3 out of 5 by canuck2013 Poor air conditioning
We were 'upgraded' to the top floor with our Starwood membership. Our room had an extremely noisy fan for the air conditioning and the thermostat did not control the fan speed or temperature. It was very uncomfortably cold. We mentioned this to the front desk but no change was made.
We didn't realize until after we were unpacked and settled in that the upgraded floor was a smoking floor. We were not asked if we wanted non smoking. There was not free wi-fi in the room. Only the lobby.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JunG62 Great Hotel .. Fair Front Desk Services
One hotel in Chiang Mai that we've always stayed, the location, the facilities, the services at the restaurants, spa, and the concierge. However, our experience with the front desk is not that impressive, we're not sure if we're Thai to have lower standard of services or not. If you can trainn your front desk not to have too much ego of working with one finest hotel chains, that would be great. Smile More .. Speak More Politely...

Rated 5 out of 5 by JonathanTravelConnoisseur Chiang Mai Delight
Excellent 5-star facility in Chiang Mai for those who like to get dirty exploring the old city, the night market, play with elephants and tigers all day and THEN return to luxury and comfort for rest and relaxation. Breakfast buffet goes beyond for all tastes and ethnicities, and front reception so kind and accommodating. Slight room for improvement: room could be better cleaned, sink drainage issue, and the spa did not have sauna or steam in the gender specific areas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SunnyDays Terrific location, Great Service
Stayed here for 4 nights and had a wonderful stay. Our room was facing the mountains and it was beautiful. The Club Lounge had everything one can ask for and the service superb. The staff in general were great and extremely courteous. The housekeeping can use some training and improvement. Once we were given a pair of slippers that has already been used and complimentary tootbrush/toothpase were missing and only one handsoap between the wash basin, bathtub and showers.

As a Platinum member I have stayed at several of the Starwood Hotels over the years. This Hotel makes me me believe that my Loyalty to Starwood does have its benefits. If ever I went into the Hotel business, I would want all my staff to be like theirs.
There are so many Hotels in Asia with staff that don't have the same respect for their guests as they did years ago, The Meridien Chiang Mai still has it. Hopefully they will never change. We had a wonderful experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Posche Nice spacious lobby and rooms with good decor and size
-Feels that they should look into the crowd lingering at the lobby. Came back at 12+am and saw a group of guests from India sitting around the sofa with feet up the chairs.
-Nice gesture as I was using the WIFI at the bar area and staff took the initiative and served me iced water
-Water flow in the bathroom was not good and the toilet bowl was stuck on my day of departure.
- Water from standing shower will flow out to the tiles even though rooms are closed

Rated 5 out of 5 by travel66 Excellence.........again.
An excellence experience, again at the leMeridien. Not one to vacation in any city twice, where Chiang Mai has draw my husband / myself three times, our choice of hotels has been, as would be the leMerdien, as the service is outstanding. beginning with an upgrade to the junior suite........ awww the junior suite with the spacious living room, to relax in once you have managed to crawl out of the tub. Crawl out as the view is overlooking the city, mountains, and you have relaxed to your hearts desire. Luxury, at its peak. Breakfast in the quiet of the club lounge to the buffet on the main floor, the service is outstanding. Even on a crowded morning on the main floor , the food items were replenished rapidly, even my coffee cup. Directions, given willing and easy to understand. Did not use the pool, as my desire was to explore............

Rated 4 out of 5 by EL18 Great hotel but except the toilet
Our overall experience in this hotel were great. The night bazaar was very near to the hotel and the staff were helpful and friendly. I'd booked three Le Royal Club Rooms but unfortunately the rooms were not connecting so it was not convenient for young children who wish to stay on the other room.
The bathroom was clean but toilet bowl
(WC) easily stuck and overflow. Quiet disgusting. Had to call for maintenance twice for two different rooms.

Spent 3 nights in this hotel with my family and we loved the services extended from the ground staff from the moment we entered this hotel. The staffs are always smiling sincerely and helped us as much as we they could. The concierge team was very efficient in arranging our trips as well. The hotel rooms are clean and comfortable plus bottled drinking water are replenish twice aday. Kudos to the all staff that made our stay memorable.

Very good location being right by the Night Market and with top rating facilities, The Le Meridien Hotel is a good choice for staying at whilst in Chiang Mai.
If you are a late night person though, be aware that the only bar in the hotel closes rather early !

Rated 4 out of 5 by Marie1974 Not as good as before
This is my third stay at your hotel and unfortunately it wasn't as good, as previous occasions. Room 1105 is looking old and a bit scruffy. I received no upgrade to the Starwood member floor, even though I booked quoting my SPg number, this was dissapointing. The hair dryer in my room was disgustingly dirty, I did hand it in to your reception staff. Not sure if I would stay again, which is sad, as before I've had great stays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HalCanada This hotel is ideally situated near the action
Stayed right before Christmas break. Hotel is ideally situated next to night market - you can't get better location than that! Staff were great and were exceptionally courteous.
Am a Gold and they went out of their way several times to acknowledge me and my kids.
Pool is indeed cool but kids loved it and I liked the refreshing plunge. Pool itself is quite neat and has great views of the mountain and temple in the distance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Charon Good location
This hotel has excellent facilities and is located in the city centre of Chiang Mai. Very good.
Disappointing was the Italian Restaurant on the 2nd floor and I also think the breakfast buffet was very BASIC.
I would recommend to reconsider the bed pillows as we found them not firm enough.
All and all not too positive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sinova Chiang Mai Le Meridien
The hotel is rated as five star but I only can see it as a four star at best. The shower area has black mold in-between the tile and cracks in some areas. Also the "Rain" shower doesn't work at all. Bath towels are thin from a five star standard. The breakfast buffet needs better temperature control as most dishes are just warm. As SPG preferred member, my room was not in the "preferred guest" level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Garybsingapore Great place for Business or Pleasure
The Meridien Chiang Mai is located close to restaurants, shops, coffee houses, the night market and more. The staff is attentive and friendly. The hotel facilities are excellent. Both the pool and Gym are very nice. Parking is convenient and local transportation is abundant. Prices are very reasonable at the hotel's outlets. I would recommend this hotel for a holiday stay, business or special event.

Rated 5 out of 5 by shoelessjoe1963 Bitterly disappointed... I had nothing to complain about!!!
I've stayed at this property a couple of times before using points but clicked up to SPG Platinum this time and so could go to town with the upgrades. Its a few years since I could 'go large' in this manner but it was a real pleasure to stay here and I cannot, from check-in to check-out, fault the staff or the process of this hotel. I've spent the last twenty years or so travelling on business/pleasure and have always been able to find something to moan about... I know, I'll moan about not having anything to moan about!!! First class effort the whole staff in every instance from check-in onwards were in tune and Gregory has this place ticking like Big Ben. I wish I could tell you the highlight of the stay for me - it involves the doorman and the fact that I was not appropriately attired after leaving the rest room, only guys will appreciate what I mean - but this property is top of our visit list now. Thoroughly recommended aside from the fact that in six days, I spent about four hours outside the property, I was that happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve13 Great location, room, food, view, staff
We stayed two weeks and enjoyed every day. The Club Lounge is great and service exceptional. Our room had a terrific mountain view with a tub for two that had a great view of the city. The night market location is perfect and always easy to get transportation to wherever. We look forward to staying here again in the future. (pool great but water a bit cold, but we were here in the colder season)

Love the hotel with one HUGE exception. Provide free wifi in the room. No one is happy about a nickel and dime charge for in room wifi (in this case $20!!), when 1 and 2 star hotels are offering it for free. So you have dozens of guests sitting in the lobby on the internet using the free wifi - makes zero sense. Just raise your room rate a few dollars and provide this critical item.

Overall the hotel met our expectation and front desk staff are all very helpful. Location is great with easy access to the night bazaar which is right infront. Good spread of food for breakfast but could vary the food a bit more as we saw mostly the same spread over our 3 nights stay.
Should have free wifi access in the room instead of having to come down to lobby for free wifi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HfromNJ Great location, nice rooms and amenities
The hotel is a modern design hotel in a great location, walking distance from attractions, shops and the night market.
Amenities are very good although prices for food and spa are a little high. Hwever, everything was excellent and tasty.
The staff is nice when you ask for their guidance but less upfront with friendly advises as I experienced in other SPG hotels in Thailand.

I stay here regulalrly on business and usually enjoy the stay. Sometimes I have had problems in the past with getting meeting rooms at reasonable rates. This time I was kindly offere a room for five meetings as part of my package. This was a kind gesture and will bring me back.
The hotel is comfortable and the staff try very hard to make my stay as nice as possible.
