Rated 5 out of 5 by JohnMike Nice stay
I really liked the property, but being 5 star, in room Internet should not be an extra charge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DrPR Very peaceful location
After a problematic check-in experience, we had a nice stay at LM Chiang Rai. We got to the hotel at the same day and time that the former GM, Justin, left to work at another SPG property in Bangkok. So, things were a bit chaotic.
Thanks to the help of Executive Assistant Manager, K. Chaiporn, we were able to enjoy the rest of our stay. He made sure that we had a nice celebration for our anniversary.
The Grande Deluxe room was very spacious and comfortable. The balcony was great for reading and relaxing in the morning and evening.
Minor issue: air conditioner temperature control problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by wetravel Relaxing Hotel with a special flair
This is my 3rd stay and as a SPG Platinum member I was upgraded to the Grand Deluxe room. We like the spacious room and the balcony as it overlooks the pool and the river. As a benefit we enjoyed the Happy hour in the bar from 5-7pm. There was also a good selection of appetizers brought on a tray to us which we really liked and enjoyed. If you come later than 7pm you can still get two drinks. The staff lady that works in the bar most days is excellent with guests. She has a God given talent to interact with guests in a very natural way and makes everyone feel welcome and special. I observed her with other guests as well. There was a function next to the pool on Sunday morning and just as the GM had promised in a prior letter it was NOT disruptive. Food and service in Favola is great. As a suggestion, I do miss a complimentary Sauna.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Zigs stunning setting, lovely hardware, but slight service glitches
The riverside setting of the hotel is stunning! Though it was too cold to swim, the poolside deck (and outdoor pools) look very inviting. Rooms are big with sundecks big enough to catch a sneaky snooze.
The only problem we had was with service -- re housekeeping: earbuds in the bathroom weren't replenished, coffee cups cleared away weren't replaced, nor were the in-room breakfast menu. Speaking of which, the two mornings we ordered breakkie in bed, identical sets came out totally different (ie. 2 pastry baskets + 1 fruit plate vs. 2 fruit + 1 pastry).
Food at Favola was great, but service was quite frazzled and really slow. That said, when we went earlier in the evening to just have a drink, the service was attentive and swift.
Made use of the concierge a few times, who deserve special mention as they're all warm, courteous and efficient!
All in all, would recommend it because the hotel itself is so lovely, but not to guests who get irked easily by service flaws.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Daniel Simply the Best in Chiang Rai
When I fly into Chiang Rai I immediately feel at home here. I have stayed 2 times at Le Meridian Chiang Rai and I would not think of going to another hotel. My SPG receptionist greets me and I am given the Golden Preferred treatment all the way to an upgraded Platinum Suite. I look forward to my return after every visit. The breakfast is Superb!! The room view's are breathtaking, All the rooms in this hotel are excellent. I look forward to sitting out by the Infinity pool next to the river. The free WiFi keep's my business running as if I was back at my desk. 5 Stars for the Best Hotel in Chiang Rai and the whole North of Thailand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by therabidcow Best hotel in Northern Thailand!
Headed over to the Le Meridien Chiang Rai for a short trip in January. We were at the resort for 4 days/3 nights and it was so brilliant that we decided to stay in most of the time!
We stayed in the Grand Deluxe rooms and we loved it! Situated on its own block at the far end of the resort, it overlooks the pool, river and is just a short hop away from the Pavarti spa. The rooms are brilliantly designed as well!
While we were there, we almost ate exclusively at the hotel - which has a wide range of food options, all being pretty good. The spa is also very good as well with private alcoves and rooms.
All in all - truly five stars!

Not only did I enjoy Chiang Rai but I enjoyed staying at this hotel. The breaksfast's were excellent. My room had the most comfortable bed and I had the wonderful choice of either soaking in a large tub or taking a shower. My patio had a wonderful water area nearby and while outside got to hear the chorus of the frogs at night. The dining experience outside by the water was excellent and the wine very good. I also went to the inside bar area near the breakfast area that was modern and enjoyable. I had a great time at this excellent hotel.
