I stayed in the Deluxe Room booking on the Accor website.
It was a super good deal (given the current flood situation, prices have been slashed) and even though there was no free Internet in the room and no breakfast included, I was more than happy with my stay.
Room -- Good-sized room that's got a brand-new feel and is super clean and spacious.
Breakfast at The Square -- Good selection of cold cuts, cereals, raw honey on rack, hot food -- continental as well as Thai... I had a hearty breakfast in the lovely restaurant that features a high ceiling which gives it a lovely airy feel.
Location -- Just at the doorstep of the Ploenchit Station, it's just 2 stops or so away from the main shopping belt of Siam Square area... however, there's plenty of new shopping areas along the Sukhumvit line that offers plenty of choices... For example, Terminal 21 just 2 stops down at Asoke Station is a humungous themed-mall! :)
Besides, along Soi Ruam Rudee which is next to the Hotel, there's a row of shophouses next to the Plaza Athenee apartments which feature "Coffee Bean by Dao" -- check it out for Western as well as Thai food -- but the real draw for me is the dessert cakes!! Yum!
Diagonally opposite it is a 7-Eleven with roadside stalls there sometimes, where you can get a lovely bowl of noodles as a late night snack. And there's a massage place -- The Touch -- just near the 7-Eleven as well.
Finally, the Staff -- true Thai hospitality at its best! :) They're polite, unobtrusive, thoughtful and helpful... I've stayed here twice and will definitely come back again the next time round...
A new Novotel at Platinum is opening soon! :)
Hope this helps! I stayed for 2 nights and had a lovely weekend! :)
