My girlfriend and I are traveling to Thailand in late August because her daughter is swimming for the USA in the International Children's Games. ' We are going to stay at the hotel where the athletes will be staying (the raddison) for the first three nights and then have decided to move to another place to experience one the the five star hotels. Although we plan on doing a lot of shopping and want to be able to easily move around we are considering either the Oriental or the Peninsula (leaning towards the Penisula as of right now)... thoughts and comments welcome....Also considering the Sheraton Grande mainly because of it's location.
Is the location of the big two okay? We also want a great pool area for some down time, good restaurants, ...geez I think we want it all!
Those of you that are experts please give us some help.
