Came to Bangkok for a conference located in the Hyatt Erawan next door to the Renaissance. I enjoyed the 4min walk every morning & evening to the venue, creating some distance between a busy day and a quiet room. Stayed in a room on floor 15, nice and quiet, although the glass walled bathroom may not be everybody's cup of tea, it makes the room appear very spacious and bright. The decor is decent and modern, with sufficient storage available (stayed here for a week). Staying here on business, I particularly liked the full-size office table and (for once!) enough electrical plugs in all the right spots. In-room WiFi worked well and, although you had to renew it every 24hrs, it was complimentary for all my 4 connected devices when I joined the Marriot frequent lyer program. Housekeeping was flawless, laundry services faster than expected and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
The downside of this hotel is certainly its "rooftop" pool, which is actually located under the roof, with only limited views to the city through glass walls. Reception staff was very friendly but too slow, both on arriving and when checking out. Given the somewhat elevated terror warning level during my stay, there was a metal detector installed in the lobby - but nobody really cared, so I guess that was pretty much for the show.
Would stay here again on business when in town.
