Large, modern four-star with some good deals
Chiang Mai Orchid is a large, modern, standard Thai hotel located next to Central department store on the road leading up to the zoo and Doi Suthep.
It compares favourably with the selection of similar large hotels by the night market and is far more centrally located than the alternative Thai chain hotels scattered around the city circular road. It does possess all the facilities of a large hotel: the lobby area is impressive, service efficient and there's a huge pool on the terrace of the third floor plus a good gym and ok sauna -- they certainly won't be trying to sell you a trek. It's a rather odd room price list but that's what they told us!
