Rated 5 out of 5 by Apecalvin Great location; Impressive staff
In my previous review of this hotel, I mentioned the high level of service standards, and the ability of the staff to communicate effectively in English. This hasn’t changed, despite my noting quite a number of new faces. Service standards remain impressive – the staff spoke well, were friendly and attentive.
This hotel is in an excellent location, in the centre of the night market area, and only a 10-minute walk to Raming House and 15-minutes to Thapae Gate which leads to the Old City. From the outside, the Le Meridien Chinagmai cuts a tall and classy figure. Inside, the style is clean and modern, infused with Thai elements. It is charming and inviting. This style continues into the rooms. All rooms have an unobstructed view of Chiangmai, and if you face the hill and Old City, the view is quite stunning, and can change quite dramatically throughout the day. You can also enjoy this view from the pool deck.
Breakfast, however, is less than impressive. I think the way forward is to offer a selection of local food, for those who want more local variety or a fuller breakfast, and a fresh juice station that offers freshly-squeezed juices.
I stayed here three nights, and enjoyed every moment of it!

Reception is excellent when you arrive, flawless check in.
I personally want to thank K. Mayuree, who check me in, very polite, with her wonderful smile. Excellent job, please convey my thank you to her.
My platinum status was recognised. Upgraded to a Suite Room.
Staff at the Club especially K. Anita with her restaurants, shopping tips, etc were superb.
Concierge very efficient. Do keep it up
Overall a great stay, will be coming back for more if my travels bring me back to Chiangmai.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jechho Great location, lounge and pool, but...
The most important thing for me when staying at a hotel is a good night sleep. Several things with our room made that very difficult:
1. Our suite was a connecting room, We could hear EVERYTHING from our neighbours. The doors between the rooms even had a small gap, so that one could have a small peak into their room.
2. Those sliding doors between the bedroom and bathroom had see-through plastic, and as it was impossible to block out sunlight from the bathroom, the bedroom was also lit up early in the morning. What were they thinking? Get rid od those sliding doors OR get decent curtains for the bathroom.
3. The aircon was very noisy.
4. Our corner room had a lot of windows, Great, you think. Well, as the sun hit the windows, it seemed like the material around them (or the windows themselves, hard to say) expanded (or something like that), making clicking / squeaking noises all day. Holy cow, those noises were irritating.
That said, the location, lounge and pool was all excellent. Too bad I was too tired (from not sleeping) to enoy it fully.

I love this hotel because of its exceptional attention to detail and very personalized service. We have stayed here many times and would never think of changing. The hotel just got an upgrade with the addition of a new Front Office Manager directly coming from the St Regis Bangkok.

Rated 4 out of 5 by hailgm1 Extremely comfortable!
My stay with Le Meridien was on account of a conference that I had to attend. I really liked the room that i stayed in. Staf was courteous and quick acting. Food for vegetarians can be a bit of an issue but i think that's something that will be par for the country at large :)
I liked the Sauna a lot; a steam room should definitely be added. The elevator music by Jerome Sans was fantastic! Will be great if the hotel personnel can help me get my hands on it.
Would definitely stay with Le Meridien Chain Mai.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wetravel why look further?
I find the Hotel has a good and central location. It is well known to Taxi's and other forms of transport alike. It is also easy to get transport from there to other places. Lots of restaurants within walking distance. As SPG P members the benefits are very good. Like the rooms and the lounge. All the staff are well trained, they are helpful and friendly. Pizza restaurant in Hotel is very good. The pool area is beautiful. Elevators work fast. We have high status at other good Hotels in Chiang Mai as well, but why look further, LM CNX offers good value for money. Had one special request to the GM and that was granted. We will be back. Well done, well serviced and well managed.

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.

Within walking distance to all the night markets, flower, fruit markets, laundromats, what else can you ask for! Room and water temps were consistent. Spa services were icing on cake! Complimentary coffee for 2 add a final touch to welcoming and valuing guest accommodations. Will return without a doubt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Alvin Hotel has many good points
Le Meridien can be considered the best hotel in Chiengmai now.
The only challenge Le Meridien has now is the comfort of the lobby bar area. The temperature is not too cold and it is inviting many mosquitoes.
Once this is addressed, I'm sure Le Meridien will be the undisputed best hotel in Chiengmai.

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.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay here very much. From the moment we stepped out of the cab, we received a warm welcome from the GM (and some great restaurant suggestions) all the way down to the pool guy. Everyone was wonderful. The hotel is very nice as well and a fantastic value, given its location and the state of the hotel in general (very very nice). I don't understand why this is only rated as a category 2 hotel. I look forward to staying here on my next trip through Thailand.
