Fodor's Expert Review Elephant Crossing Hotel

Almost every room at this modern four-story hotel has a river view, a balcony, hardwood floors, and wooden trim constructed of recycled bits of old Lao houses. The restaurant spills onto the lawn and a patio alongside the river, where guests can sip complimentary tea and Lao coffee. A traditional herbal Lao sauna and massage room nestle underneath the restaurant, providing respite and comfort after a day outdoors.
