I have been meaning to stay here for some time. This hotel is only four years new but often gets great reviews. I booked for a weekend here in December 2012 with an option for an upgrade on arrival and subject to availability.
The building is quite striking, a modern imposing tower with large glass windows and green frames. Its gardens are pleasant, the buffet plentiful and inviting, the entertainment stylish and laid back. In terms of textiles and furnishings it errs on modern styles with solid fixtures and fittings.
I had the pleasure of meeting with one of the hotel flamboyant stars, Director of rooms Chatchawan Napawan and I found him to be both delightful and convincing. When he suggested that I should take up that upgrade, I did without hesitation. It was a wonderful recommendation as I ended up enjoying a one bedroom suite with private balcony with river views available also from the bedroom.
The upgrade also included access to their club on the 36th floor with free drinks and canapés. I was quite impressed not only with the position of their excellent infinity pool set against against the river and overlooking a perfect sunset but also with their vast breakfast choice and the overall cleanliness of the amenities.
There were also many little touches like, for example, returning from the above club the first evening I found the bed runner had been removed and one side of the sheets folded open with slippers positioned by the bed. Another time the newspaper was left in a re-usable bag discreetly placed on the outside door handle.
The feel in the lobby, as with most of this big hotels, felt a little busy but once I checked in it was very relaxing indeed and the views left an indelible memory in my mind.
This hotel provided a great location for many happy photos and I was not surprised with the number of accolades it has been receiving in recent times.
