“Unforgettable Experience in Bangkok”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2012

I have got my first chance to stay in Bangkok first time in JAN 12. When I reach the hotel, it was too early but still they can provide me the room...... I'm extremely happy with the hotel services..... Perfect warm welcome experience.... It's one of the best hotel that is luxury as well as modern. It was the perfect choice to select to stay in this hotel...... Only one phase for this hotel-> "I got one of the best relaxation period in my life"

Room Tip: Put the request for high floor and corner room of the hotel you'll get one of the best panorama...

We stayed only one night but the experience was enjoyable. Modern and trendy hotel with great service and conveniently located close to Siam Square area and all the shopping malls.
We got a room on a high floor - comfortable yet small, the typical Marriott high-standadrd. The bathroom was very modern, with glass walls and all the amenities you can expect.
Huge breakfast choice - they even come around the tables offering fresh smoothies and just baked pastries. We tried several choices: fried rice, muffins and other pastries, dumplings, fritata, smoothies, congé, fruits... everything was fresh and tasty.
Finally, after our check-out, a very helpful staff member took us to the entrance of the Maneeya Centre and explained us how to get to the BTS avoiding the stairs.
NB: to access the hotel from the public transports, the BTS station Chit Lom is recommended. At this station look for the Maneeya Centre entrance. From there, the way to the hotel is signed.

I've been to Bangkok over 5 times in the last year and have tried the hyatt, westin etc. - this property has been the best thus far. The only draw back - 1. not many cabbies knew where this hotel was since its fairly new. 2. theyre booking process was confusing (we thought we had the room for 50% of the price we paid due to some discount only for bangkok residents).

Besides the above, the rooms were great, clean, food is great, location is amazing, saved us enough time during the day. Its one of those hidden secrets I guess. Must try.

Stayed during chinese new year, and the property was one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. Marriott owner in the U.S and very proud of brand standard maintained overseas. deffinatly above brand standard for the USA. Location excellent, in between Chidlom and cental world shopping malls. Easy access to walk to everything.

Came to Bangkok for a conference located in the Hyatt Erawan next door to the Renaissance. I enjoyed the 4min walk every morning & evening to the venue, creating some distance between a busy day and a quiet room. Stayed in a room on floor 15, nice and quiet, although the glass walled bathroom may not be everybody's cup of tea, it makes the room appear very spacious and bright. The decor is decent and modern, with sufficient storage available (stayed here for a week). Staying here on business, I particularly liked the full-size office table and (for once!) enough electrical plugs in all the right spots. In-room WiFi worked well and, although you had to renew it every 24hrs, it was complimentary for all my 4 connected devices when I joined the Marriot frequent lyer program. Housekeeping was flawless, laundry services faster than expected and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

The downside of this hotel is certainly its "rooftop" pool, which is actually located under the roof, with only limited views to the city through glass walls. Reception staff was very friendly but too slow, both on arriving and when checking out. Given the somewhat elevated terror warning level during my stay, there was a metal detector installed in the lobby - but nobody really cared, so I guess that was pretty much for the show.

Would stay here again on business when in town.

Arrived close to midnight after flying from Sydney. Staff were eager to greet and get us to our room quickly. From the minute I stepped into the foyer I was impressed. It is very modern and screams luxury & quality. The decor is beautiful, huge foyer, lots of glass. The rooms aren't huge but they are extremely well appointed, once again the decor in the rooms was impressive. Art and furniture tasteful and the bed was amazing. Really funky bathrooms with glass walls & huge bath, ultra modern. Breakfast in the restaurant was good with lots of choices and plenty of staff available to refill coffee cups etc. I also did an inspection of the conference facitlities which are fantastic. Roof top indoor pool is amazing with a view of pretty much all of Bangkok. Location is perfect in downtown Bangkok, shopping malls all around and sky train close by. Renaissance Bangkok is a fabulous hotel, my only regret is that we were only there for 1 night.

The hotel is centrally located in the heart of Bangkok. It is within walking distance to various shopping centres - Central World, Siam Paragon, Amarin and further down to MBK and Siam Centre. The Ocean World is located near to Siam Paragon, while Madame Tussaud is near to Siam Centre. These shopping centres have all the high end designers’ brands, while the MBK is more towards middle class items.

There is also a nearby MRT station – Chit Lom, where you can get on it and travel across the city. It is cheap, efficient and clean. However try to avoid peak periods when it is jam packed with travellers – as with most others rapid transport system across the world.

The hotel is located about 150m from the main road – Phloenchit Road. In between the main road and the hotel is an open space parking lot, so you can see the hotel from the road. The only thing is that you may miss the entrance to the side road leading to the lobby if you travel fast on the main road – my cab driver missed the entrance.

The hotel itself is modernly designed with chic items here and there. The lobby does not occupy too large a space, and can be a bit congested during peak periods eg while checking out. There are sofas at the centre of the lobby, away from the check in counters. Security is pretty tight – all vehicles entering the compound is checked, as well as any person entering the lobby.

I had the 1 bedroom studio – the room was nicely decorated. As you enter the room, to the left is the closet area, to the right leads to the bathroom. The room itself is huge – ample space. There is an L shaped sofa on one corner. The bed was firm and very much to my liking. A wing chair is placed next to the window. The AC was really good – not much noise even at high speed. The internet connection was also fast.

The bathroom is also nicely decorated and huge. The big bathtub sits by the window, and you can basically see the outside buildings while in you are in the tub ... and vice versa, unless of course the vinyl curtain is drawn. It has a separate shower area with good pressure of hot water. The only comment is that the pipe outlets on the sinks are way too low, thus making it quite difficult to wash the hands, especially for a tall person, and even worse when you want to fill up the kettle to boil some water.

The buffet breakfast spread is quite OK – nothing to shout about, typical for this sort of hotel. One thing stands out is that you can have a fresh fruit juice squeezed upon your order. The restaurant is well lit due to the high glass surrounding. However, this also attracts heat by mid morning. While I was there, the hotel had some problems with the AC in the restaurant, so it got stuffy after a while.

I had the opportunity to sit in the lounge in the early evening – there were plenty of mosquitoes enjoying the lounge as well. It was really a nuisance that after a while I decided to leave the lounge area. This may also be due to the hotel ambience which, to me, is somewhat dimmed in some areas. It is not really brightly lit like some other hotels. The walkway to the rooms from the elevator area is another example of poor lighting. Since there is no window at the walkway, or the public areas on my floor, I was totally dependent upon the lighting, and to me, it was very poorly designed.

Apart from these small things, the hotel is OK, and the staff is very pleasant, accommodating and helpful – from the bell boy, concierge, door staff, front desk, waitress etc, they were friendly.

Room Tip: Nothing much on the rooms, but beware when you travel by cab. My friend and I were taken for a ride...
