If you walk out of the hotel's main entrance and turn right on Loi Kroh Road, cross over the little side road and keep walking there is a 7/11 just down on the right opposite the entrance to the Duangtawan Hotel - they sell beer, not sure whether it will be bottled or tinned though.

I thought Loi Kroh road was in Chiang mai not Chiang Rai . A bit of a confusing post CM or CR

Happy travels

Whoops, I didn't read it properly! Le Meridien in CR appears to be in the middle of nowhere surrounded by farmland. There seems to be a couple of little local restaurants nearby, but that's all. Perhaps stocking up in town is the way to go.

Carole asked the same question on CM form, so might have not known how to delete.

Same applies..........go out main entrance (if Chiang Rai), turn right, follow road around. You'll see Chan Rest.......then Yunan Rest, fronting the river. And a few others, if wanting to sit and sip.

Keep going and their is a market on right, that does alcohol. Star MiniMart to mini mart

Google Map shows a mere 600 meters from Le M

And probably a couple ma/pa shops, but didn't notice.
