What exactly makes a hotel family friendly? In my book, that means it's got to have large enough rooms that I can easily fit a crib or pack n' play. It should have a dedicated area for children to play, whether it's a nice shady kiddy pool or an indoor play room. And the staff have to be friendly and helpful and not get annoyed when kids inevitably make noise or messes. These hotels in Chiang Mai all fit the bill, so if you're heading to the north with kids in tow, check them out first!
