Chiang Mai Hotels - Novotel any good?

has anyone stayed at the Novotel Chiang Mai? Any recommendations for decent hotels (like convenience to city sights, fitness center) in Chiang Mai paying US $30-70? I did a search and saw few threads on Novotel...Thanks

You might try Chiang Mai Plaza which has a great location and is a good value. I think it has a fitness center. Another option is Imperial Mae Ping and a third option is Dungtawan.

I have found Novatel and Accor Hotels in general to be very consistant and good. Although I haven't stayed in one in Chiangmai ( I stayed at the Suriwongse...right next door to the night market which was very nice and convenient), I have stayed twice, in the past two years, at the Novatel in Accra, Ghana,West Africa and it was VERY nice.I have also stayed at other Accor hotels...like the Chateau de Bangkok( very nice) in Bangkok and the Suite Hotel(wonderful) at Charles de Gaulle Airport Nord 2 in Paris. So, I'd feel very good with selecting an Accor hotel. HAppy Travels!

Novotels in Thailand are very good value for money. Novotel is nice but not so brilliant location wise, Central Duangtawan and Rydges both very good value and convenient.

We recently stayed (July 2005) at the Central Duangtawan. It is next door to the Suriwongse and the night bazaar and is in a very nice location. Hotel is a steal at $29 for a deluxe double from asiarooms. Buffet breakfast is very nice. Don't look/search further. Go for Duangtawan

If your hotel is not up to snuff, try The Park Hotel. Immaculate, on same road as the night market but away from its noise, good food and service.
