Very nice hotel in Chiang Rai. Good service, nice,and polite. The room "Grand Deluxe River View" is very good for take a view from room, we can see the pool and the KOK River and the tree"Suk-Ka-Same". In the morning from the balcony we can drink the tea or coffee and see around from there very romantic.The next time we would like to upgrade to GRAND SUITE ROOM the only one of this hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Petch Great location
The hotel is located not so far from the city. Very convenient to visit places. The hotel is located on riverside and very peacful to get away.
The staffs were very attentive, the room was clean but very noisy. The door and the wall couldnt prevent the noise from outside. The room next to me was very noisy so i did not have a great peaceful sleep and they woke me up early in the morning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rae379 Best service, SPG recognition, spa, & facilities
I have been a platinum member for a number of years, so I have stayed at a lot of SPG properties. This is my new favorite. We loved the service and SPG recognition - no waiting 20 minutes for staff to bring extra towels to your room. Any request is filled immediately within 2 minutes. SPG platinum members get breakfast like we are supposed to, which is an amazing breakfast buffet, but also get free (yes free) alcoholic drinks from 5 to 7 every day in the nice sunset view bar plus 10% off all spa treatments and food. Also other free snacks and things here and there throughout the stay. I felt very special and appreciated. Plus the room upgrade to a suite and the gorgeous facilities were wonderful.
The spa was small but that was part of its charm. It had good prices - we paid $125 each for 2 people to do 2.5 hours each worth of massages, body scrubs, herbal baths, etc. It was an intimate spa that is 100% focused on you and only you, as the spa is set up to cater to only 1 couple (or single person) at a time. Unlike the spas in places like Hawaii where you feel like you are part of an assembly line, this was very relaxing and romantic.
The resort's food was good. Not amazing, but we didn't tire of the options over 3 days. The bus service into the town of Chiang Rai was convenient and ran on time. They will also pick you back up. Again, on time. It's the little things that make the difference!
Finally, I must give a shout out to Arnon, the concierge. I had a few odd requests during our stay - for example, I needed a taxi to a city 3 hours away at 7:00 a.m. the morning I checked out. We also booked a private 1/2 day tour through the hotel (again very affordable), but requested a change to the tour itinerary. Etc. I do want to note that we enjoyed our tour of the Chiang Rai architectural sites, though it was sometimes hard to understand our tour guide. Arnon even got on the phone to help me with a tour happening later in my trip when I will have moved on to a different hotel. He was very helpful and kind.
Overall, this is one of the best, if not the best, resort I have ever stayed in because of the service, quiet and beautiful grounds, SPG recognition, and unique location. Thank you to the staff, who made it very special.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DJacobs Best value ever seen in Starwood Thailand
We simply love it!
Unbeatable value for money, great service, good Platinum recognition with upgrades and a nice Platinum Cocktail hour.
Room are nice and clean, staff always friendly.
The fitness centre is well equipped, the outdoor pool area is a bit too small for the quite big hotel.
All in all it was an amazing experience.
Don't think of an category 2 Starwood Hotel when you consider to book your stay at the Le Meridien, it is much better then average Cat. 2's.
We can not wait to be back, we are planning a long stay 2-4 weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CopperDan12 Great Room, Pool and Staff
We really enjoyed our stay at the Le Meridien Chiang Rai. The Grande Deluxe Room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and service oriented. The pool was the perfect temperature and had a great design. The food and drinks were very good and always readily available. The spa was well designed (relaxing and comfortable). The Italian restaurant was very nice, the buffet was wonderful and the Latitude 19 bar was very nice...especially the bartender "Ann." The entire hotel was attractively designed and they were making improvements to the deck and walkways. The staff was always cleaning and making the hotel look its best. We felt very safe at the hotel and walking to restaurants at night near the hotel. We can't say enough about how friendly and helpful the staff are. A lot of them speak English very well.
