I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights in May 2013, both for business and for leisure. The hotel is very new and located at the Ratchaprasong area in Bangkok city. It is only about a 5 minute walk from the Chidlom Skytrain station and, using the Skywalk, you can literally walk to all the popular shopping malls like Central World (5 min), Siam Paragon and Siam Centre (10 mins). In terms of the decor of the hotel, I would say it's glitzy modern, with a very spacious and open lobby. The hotel rooms are nice and quite spacious (I was upgraded to a corner Junior Suite as a Platinum member), with floor to ceiling windows even for the marble bathrooms (full-length automatic roller shades provided of course!). Furnishings and appliances were new and up-to-date and there was a DVD player and a 32" Samsung flat screen TV. The bed was one of the best I've slept in in any Marriott chain hotel worldwide - firm yet cushioned, and good feather pillows. The Executive lounge was very nice - spacious, plenty of seating, had PCs with printers and a copier, and both the breakfast and evening spreads were very generous. In the morning, your eggs are done to order like in most full breakfast buffets in Bangkok, which is a plus. In summary, this hotel, for me, has taken over the top spot from JW Marriott Bangkok as the best among the Marriott chain hotels in Bangkok. It's newer and has nicer and better rooms than the JW and is also in a better location. JW does have a nicer and better Executive Lounge, but the rooms there cost about 20-30 percent more than the Renaissance. Service levels are about the same - knowledgeable and attentive. The pool and exercise room is on the top level and looked nice, clean and well appointed. I will definitely go back again!
