A brand new hotel, I think not even officially open when I stayed in April, and therefore maybe not yet charging full rates. Located at the back of The Four Seasons so, yes, be ready to explain that to the taxi driver when you arrive. 200m walk down the lane from the hotel to the main road, and there's the monorail, but it's only a 10-15 walk to Siam Square area.
I got an upgrade to one of the rooms with the "wall garden" - unusual, pleasant to look at, and probably a devil to maintain and keep clean. The room itself was large, especially the twin-sink bathroom, with big tub in a separate wet-room with shower. The separate lounge area was welcome. Free wifi and - something I have never come across in a hotel anywhere - a free minibar, albeit mostly soft drinks, with two cans of beer, but a nice and unexpected gesture.
The hotel is all about earthy tones, wood and glass. Nice design overall, and pleased that the room had carpet, not the ubiquitous cold wooden flooring so many other modern hotels use. There is a long (but not deep) lap pool, adjacent to a well-equipped and bright gym, and large pool patio area with sun-beds. There's also a roof patio at the top of the building, which guests can access to take pictures, and I assume is used for parties, functions, etc.
Breakfast downstairs was very good, but not exceptional. The usual buffet set-up, with eggs cooked to order. Quality was good, not the awful industrial-standard pastries, tinned fruits, etc, that some hotels love to offer. It's possible to eat outside on the long balcony, if you prefer that to the air-con restaurant.
Overall, a very comfortable and well-designed new hotel. I think the test will be - how high are prices set once the place is officially launched, and how well maintained will all the fixtures and fittings be (I somehow could sense that it would not take too much use, or too much time, before some of the room fittings started to look tired and damaged). Time will tell.
It's usually a cliche to say that the "staff are friendly" in hotels, but here I must say that every staff member I came into contact with did seem genuinely alive and interested in what they were doing and how they could help.
