The Sheraton Grande is such a great oasis in the middle of Bangkok!
I stayed there for 4 nights with my wife and we really enjoyed our stay.
As SPG Platinum we were upgraded to one of the newly refurbished suites. The room was very spacious, the decor was classy, the bed very comfortable and, despite being on a low(ish) floor, the view was great. Perks for Platinum members are really good: free breakfast at the main buffet or by the pool, happy hour in the evening of open bar at the Library or at the bar/club downstairs and free laundry for 2 pieces of clothing per day among other things.
We only had breakfast at the main buffet and it was excellent. It offered one of the most extensive spreads I've ever seen, the quality was very good and service very attentive. I checked the pool area the day we left and wish I had tried breakfast there, as they offer a broad range of a la carte dishes.
Early evening drinks were also great. They offer a great variety of drinks, and the live jazz at the Library offered the perfect background. The bar downstairs is more of a late night place (darker colors, dim lighting), but offers a little buffet with tasty hors d'oeuvres.
Staff is very friendly and helpful and service is impeccable, from room service to servers to the concierge offering helpful information and advice.
Finally, location is a big plus. The hotel is connected to both the skytrain and the subway, so it's very easy to go anywhere in the city without being stuck in traffic (we tried to avoid taking cabs whenever possible, especially during the day, since traffic is really bad).
We were there on the day of the king's birthday and enjoyed the celebration they organized just outside the hotel (which attracted also a lot of tourists/passers-by who were not staying at the hotel).
If/when we are back in Bangkok this will definitely be our top choice to stay.
