Rated 4 out of 5 by Tennis30 Amazing property with equally amazing staff
Gorgeous grounds and large rooms. Service was great from front desk to housekeeping to F&B outlets. Serene settings and perfect for relaxing after a long day of looking at the sights. Chiang Rai are warm, gracious and welcoming just like the staff at this hotel. A little inconvenient having to taking a shuttle bus to town but makes it a little more exclusive. The only downside that prevented me from giving the final star in my rating was the food at Latest Recipe. Had a buffet dinner at the restaurant and while the price was very good (but 499 nett), the food must have been one of the worst I've had for a hotel buffet. Poor selection, dry and almost lazy. Of the 9 or 10 hot main items offered, 4 included white rice, fried rice, boiled potato and plain pasta! The rest were overcooked/dry vegetables and 2 depressing-looking curries. Chicken was super dry,hard and inedible. Shame! But the staff in there were simply charming. Don't eat there and you will have a lovely stay!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ProfBill The hotel has a marvelous atmosphere
This was the second resort hotel we stayed at during our tour of Thailand and the better of the two.
The room looked out over a wonderful view of a rain tree. The resort featured four separate guest room buildings, an infinity pool and several restaurants and bars. All were exceptional.
The staff was attentive and the service good.
The menus were a good mix and the food was tasty.

We stayed at Le Meridien in Chiang Rai just for one night during our tour around Thailand. We were given a room in the luxury wing of the hotel, just beside the pool. The room was huge and had all facilities. The hotel location is great and the pool, just above the river, is awsome. Great position to discover the norrh of Thailand and the Golden Triangle zone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Patcha Nice hotel and great location
overall is great and excellent...hotel is beautiful and great location.
Weak point is...the room really dusty ..i and my husband get allergy to the dust...there is a lot of dust was flowing everywhere in the room especially when you turn on the light and you really can see it through.
And i was using the dinning and restaurant. Serving food is take too long as we sit in the restaurant and no guest at all...we waited like...more than 20mins just for "Kra prow moo" and "Tom Yam kung"
The taste is not impressive...we tried twice in room order and restaurant...even we remark that we need a tasty and spicy for Thai eating...i can give only 2/10 point...
i recommended that Chef should possible to adapt their taste not only for Foreigner but Thai also..i see a lot of Thai people stay there..i guess they would think the same...i'm a person that love to taste the hotel food for my recommendation to other people...
i hope my review can be a useful information.

This is the second stays in this month.Hotel is very nice,private and very quiet. We enjoyed A Taste of Discovery Lunch at Lastes Recipe with promotion. We found welcome fruits.It was moldy fruit after chew in my room.
It was not up to standard from starwood.
Swimming pool is beautiful but the water was dirty. We found small hair very much in this pool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Derek1980 Fantastic hotel
Idyllic location and surrounding, top notch amenities including well equipped gym and "infinity" pool. Staff were friendly and courteous including FOM. Only problem was that it's crawling with insects, management should look into this problem. Although with difficulty considering its a resort sort of property and close to nature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ED201 Great location
Excellent location near the Mae Kok river. Only problem we had was that the temperature outside was 8-10C and we couldn't get the room to warm up past 19C which was a bit uncomfortable. We had 2 rooms booked and this was the case in both rooms. Other than that the hotel was lovely

This is a great hotel with excellent staff and facilities, The pool gym and spa are very good. A very well run hotel with a great location right on the river. They have a great front desk staff that will help you with all your needs. I have stayed at this location 4 times and would not stay any where else in Chiang Rai. Well Done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jechho Excellent hotel
This is a great property in a lovely and secluded location, close to the Golden Triangle. We thought that the area was much more interesting than the rather touristy Chiang Mai.
Fantastic food in Favola.
Good platinum recognition, was upgraded to a Grand Deluxe room. Though not a suite, it was a big and comfy room.
Nice breakfast spread in Latest Recipe.
Room for improvement:
- The sound insulation in the room is not great. It was a bar nearby (not at the property), and music was easily heard late at night through the glass balcony door. I would also recommend the top floor, as noise from above (moving furniture, people coming and going) could be a problem.
- I suggest that wedding ceremonies held right by the pool for several hours are either announced at the web page to the hotel or by email to the customer in adequate time beforehand. A note in the room the same day is not good enough. It certainly put a damper on the pool use for us (lasting from 1530 to 1800++).

The Le Meridien Chiang Mai is as always my home away from home, wether its business or pleasure. The staff is always professional and the new General Manager is a welcomed addition to the team. I am looking forward to his new innovative ideas and concepts that will make this resort even better for years to come.

We have stayed in many SPG properties in the past but your resort has to be the top on my list. It is your staffs that made my visit memorable. Everyone from the front desk to the restaurant were extremely courteous and friendly. Thank you once again for making my stay in your property a memorable one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by timinphuket Splendid room and breakfast was fantastic
We chose here because of the name and of the expectations with hotels of this price and name.
Everything and more was what we got - even Cartoon Network. The coffee pot was a welcome addition but no real coffee.
Breakfast was a beautiful array of things to choose from and the staff were even better

Rated 3 out of 5 by SILVERFOX101 OVERALL DISAPPOINTING STAY
We prefer to stay in hotels who offer us service around our needs and not expect guests to fit in with staff. 5* star hotels offer impeccable service, not lip service to it.
Reception said they would treat our room for mosquitos but never happened, so we got bitten!!
Buffet style food was particularly poor quality, staff concentrated on clearing tables instead of attending to servicing guest needs. AC was too cold in public areas. VISIT LMBKK to appreciate just how buffet food should be presented.
Reception staff very curt when asked for an explanation of the final bill when overcharged. Format of the bill was just far too complicated to rationalise and understand clearly at a glance.
Hotel mini bus transport was too infrequent and usually full. Simply running it more frequently would suit the Guests instead of the driver!
Pool refurbishment noise and fumes from cutting steel and timber within 10m of guests was unacceptable.
Loud noise from a Karaoke over-ran finishing time only stopped when we complained.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tiwa This Hotel is excellent
The Hotel was very modern, the Grand Deluxe room was very spacious - it was fantastic.
The balcony was also very spacious and a pleasant place to sit and relax and enjoy the river view. Only one criticism - the toilet did not have a door. If it had a toilet door - then perfect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tappy Bad service
Your staff were willing to serve only foreign guests. They looked down on Thai people and treated my family with bad attitude. That is not acceptable. I will never stay in this hotel again.
PLEASE make sure that my money is refunded to my credit card soon.

I live in Chiang Mai, Thailand and traveled to Chiang Rai to get away with my family. The first day, we didn't even leave the resort as it was so wonderful. The hospitality was incredibly helpful and the facilities were clean and fabulous. We'll be coming back again soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by farcire beautiful grounds, relaxing setting, freezing rooms, and slow to no internet
We were upgraded to a Grand Deluxe Room on the ground floor and we turned in down in favor of an Oversize Deluxe Room on a higher floor. The ground level Grand Deluxe Room was dark, the tile floors felt cold and uninviting, and the patio which overlooked the lawn adjacent to the pool lacked privacy and quiet. We were much happier with a 4th floor Deluxe Room with a view of the river. The hotel grounds are beautiful and relaxing. The platinum benefits -- breakfast buffet and cocktails -- are stellar. The staff is friendly and helpful but with limited English proficiency, so it helps to be very specific. Our room was initially stocked with enough towels for only 1 person, so when we we asked for another set of towels, we got only one towel. The hotel is very open, and the rooms are drafty, so it gets very very cold at night and in the mornings. However, the biggest issue for us was the poor wifi connectivity -- it's very slow at its best, but at its worst, you can't even get access. At one point, the hotel had reached its maximum number of connected devices allowed so I couldn't even get online..

We had great service during our stay. I was just a little upset that I left my little pillow behind and called the same day we left and apparently they did not find it. It was a pillow that had been with me for years and travels with me :(
