With an ideal location on Changklan Road, right next to the Night Bazaar, this large hotel is an imposing presence in central Chiang Mai. The spacious and well-lit rooms are packed with state-of-the-art furnishings that combine European and Asian touches. Yes, some vacationers might find rooms, with their neutral-toned décor, too corporate-looking, but we find them restful. Try and snag one of the upper-floor rooms that have views of the nearby mountain, Doi Suthep. The hotel’s restaurants and bars offer an appetizing array of culinary delights, exotic cocktails, and fruit infusions. Important: This is a rare example of an area hotel with wheelchair access.
