Chiang Mai continues to be an exciting and enticing destination for tourists and the Novotel Chiang Mai JourneyHub has settled right into the heart of it. Novotel’s distinct brand of hospitality is evident through its satisfied clientele, thriving in the hip Nimman neighborhood.
The Novotel brand, developed by Accor, is focused on modern, natural and intuitive design. Created in 1967 in France, Accor grew into what became the Accor group in 1983, and Novotel remains a pillar brand of Accor’s multi-brand strategy. Novotel manages 492 hotels in 59 countries.
The 4-star Chiang Mai Novotel officially opened in May of last year and it has since enjoyed a steady clientele. At the time of its opening, the general manager Cedric Lafargue said, “With the opening of Novotel Chiang Mai Nimman Journeyhub, we are delighted to offer a space in which guests and locals can have a drink, grab a bite to eat, work, play or just relax. The hotel lies at the crossroads of French hospitality and fascinating Thai Lanna culture for which the city is renowned.”
With 202 guestrooms and suites, guests can take their pick of rooms featuring either balcony or garden access. Each room is equipped with a 55-inch smart TV, minibar and a spacious bathroom with separate bathtub and shower.
