This is a good hotel in convienient location. A few blips, but overall nice and the staff are great.
My wife's family comes from Bangkok, so we go there regularly. This was our first stay at the Renaissance, I believe it only opened in 2011ish. Its location is just off Ploenchit/Sukhumvit one of the key main roads in Bangkok. At first I was put off as it is down a small road and not directly on the main road. But I was wrong. You are close to the BTS train system so very easy to get round Bangkok. You are also close to many of the main shopping malls - all within very easy walking distance.
First impressions? Wow, this looks nice. The staff - they have got it perfect, very very helpful, attentive without being over the top. And free WiFi. We had vouchers - so it means you can negotiate prices with them - and only paid Bht3,400++ per night, inc breakfast. And breakfast was good.
They had a nice bar RBar Free - but entertainment a bit confusing. A local band playing usual 70s/80s songs - mediocre. They stop at 11pm, then a DJ with house music till midnight then DJ finishes and background music which sounds just like the DJ. Don't know why they bother with the DJ. But it is a bit like being in London - 10.30pm they started clearing all the candles and decor away. I thought they were going to shut, but they were open till12.30am when we went to bed. I just find it so annoying - its as hough they don't want you to stay. Bar snacks were fab.
This is a nice 5* hotel. Part of the Marriott Group. Good location. Good staff. Rooms are as expected. Give yourself an hour to get to the airport - go on the meter and you will pay Bht300 and Bht70 in road taxes.
