This hotel was really nice. But it was a bit typical in the sense that it had a palatial lobby and a small room. The lobby will excite you and the room will just please you.
I don't mean this comment to sound negative because it's not meant to be that way but I've stayed in several of these hotels that have epic lobbies and adequate sized nice rooms.
The actual restaurant in the hotel is absolutely wonderful with a great buffet lunch. The price is pretty cheap too.
The spa was gorgeous but the actual massage was terrible. But that shouldn't reflect the spa, just the masseuse. I'm 6'3" 225 pounds. I felt like a kitty was massaging me. They lay a towel over you and massage thru the towel and the shirt and pants you wear. It just dampened her already weak hands.
But the hotel is great. Super nice and helpful staff.
It's not located near anything in walking distance really but a short cab ride will get you there. Cabs are cheap anyway.
It's easily one of the best hotels in Bangkok. Just not in a great location. But once you're inside you won't care.
