We booked the W Bangkok after doing some research online. It's right in the heart of Silom so very central to nearly everything in BKK. As others have mentioned, it's on a the BTS skytrain line so getting around is very easy.
The hotel is obviously new and everything looks immaculate. The lobby area is very nice and staff was warm and welcoming -- a nice thing after 26 hours of travel! The food and drinks we had while at the hotel were high quality but a bit pricey by Thailand standards, but it's a high-end hotel. Our bed and linens were insanely comfortable (your typical W-level materials). The pool was our favorite part of the hotel. It felt like a tropical getaway in the heart of the city.
Overall, strongly recommended. I would stay again next time I travel to Bangkok.
