Ok for solo female, i will suggest to stay in the crowded area like Sukhumvit but have to choose some specific Soi for you to stay.

Maybe

Grand Centre Point Terminal 21

Fulfill your vivid living with unparalleled convenience and experience life to the fullest at the state-of-the-art hotel and residence, the new landmark at the center of the bustling Sukhumvit Road, the melting pot of vibrant lifestyles at your doorstep. Located near the Sukhumvit-Ratchadapisek Intersection, and Express Entry and Exit, your travel to any destination is convenient and fast. The hotel suites feature a fully furnished kitchen, microwave, washing machine and dryer, electric kettle, toaster, free cable and satellite television, stereo, DVD player, and wireless internet.

As the hotel is connected to Terminal 21 (Department) so you can go shopping all day. It's safe and also connected to the skytrain / subway :)

You can book the room and read some more details here;

It's highly recommend by many tourists for its convenience and safety.

Please note that if you are a solo traveller, avoid living in Nana (Sukhumvit Soi 3), Khaosarn Road.

Enjoy Thailand.

The Siam area would be ideal - LOTS of great shopping centres, and it is easy to get around as it is the central point of the Skytrain. It is a good area to walk around, lots of restaurants to choose from, and lots to see and do.

Sukhumvit or Siam areas. Ensure the hotel you pick is near a BTS Skytrain station.

Knowing your price range for a hotel room makes it easier to suggest a place to stay. A hotel with air conditioning, private toilet, TV and safety box starts around 600-750 baht. There are hotels that cost over $200 US a night too!

Most hotels will be safe enough. Even hotels next to bars will be safe but probably not so quiet! Cheap places are safe but have fewer toys to play with like gyms, fancy lobbies, saunas, fancy restaurants, etc. Like men, women who drink too much alcohol can get in trouble. If you take a random guest back to your hotel (same as the men) that guest can steal everything you own! Almost every time I read about women getting in trouble drinking too much alcohol and taking chances is a factor. Google up "scams in Thailand" and use the SEARCH choice for other posts on scams and safety.

Without mentioning a price range any hotel suggestions you get may be too expensive or too cheap for your tastes.

Amari Boulevard on Sukhumvit Soi 5. Walk to Nana Skytrain. Across from this hotel is the Foodland Supermarket where you have a lunch counter open all night long. American breakfast (before 9 a.m.) is 51 baht. All you can eat breakfast at the nearby Fortuna Hotel, open to the public, 149 baht. This Nana area of Sukhumvit Road is lively to 2 a.m. You always see tourists walking about late at night. There is some nightlife here and there in the Nana area that you can ignore like the thousands of other tourists passing by.

Imm Fusion. On Sukhumvit but closer to On Nut Skytrain stop. Walk to Skytrain and Lotus Tesco Mall. Supermarket, restaurants and other stuff nearby or use Skytrain to get around. No nightlife.

Pathumwan Princess. At a Skytrain stop. Walk to MBK mall, This mall has many places to shop at along with restaurants and supermarkets. Asia Hotel is at a Skytrain stop too. In Pratunam area, walk down to shopping on Phetchaburi Road. Nearby to Asia Hotel is the Evergreen Place at a higher price. In Bangkok and other major cities there are always Seven Eleven stores and similar quick stop places available for snacks and drinks.

Was thinking of staying at the Intercontinental, is that a good area for evening outings for a single woman? Would another hotel area be more suitable?

Thanks

Intercontinental is a safe, very convenient location.

OP

You can spend from around 1,000 baht for a room at Wendy House, to 400,000 baht for a 2 BDRM suite at Kempinski.

What should we shoot for? Do you want a safe place just to sleep? Or, do you want to take in the ambiance?
