I have stayed twice in the last 12 months - both times in a Speciality Room on the 20 something floor. This is a great hotel. All the 5 star luxury you want - lovely rooms, large modern bathrooms and Meridien facilities you expect. There's nothing like walking in from shopping and touring then diving into the pool - cool, modern and chic. The rooms come with free drinks from 5:30 for 2 hours. Great place to start the night with friends either in the Foyer or Bamboo Bar. Walk outside to restaurants, bars and Patpong are a stones throw away. Japanese Street offers amazing food, Patpong the markets and bars. Taxi's are there all night and easy cheap ride to Sukhumvit - easier than walking to the MRT. Breakie is a huge smorgasbord and worth it for at least one morning if you can eat all the food. Riverside hotels close by - you'll be surprised what else is near. If you love all that Bangkok has to offer this is a great place to stay.
