Nothing was too much for this hotel. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were treated very hospitably by the hotel staff. Don't be put of by the location (upper end of Suhkumvit road), there is plenty to do. If the hotel gym, swimming pool, Jacuzzi, suana or lounge (free pool table, football table, coffee and internet PC) do not keep you busy, then the many bars, clubs and spas that are within walking distance from hotel will definately help! The first night we were there, we needed some ice for our drinks in our room. The rooms are equipped with a fridge and freezer and we could not work out how to get the ice machine working. Apparently it takes a few hours after setting the machine so the hotel said we could buy some from the 24hr supermarket at the basement of the hotel. Within 10 minutes of getting this information, the hotel room bell rung and to our surprise, the hotel staff brought up a huge bucket of ice cubes for us, without us asking for it. Just one of the touches that sets it apart from good hotels. Other touches, such as rooms being cleaned when requested very late (5pm) was never a problem. And those cleaning staff were excellent.
The front desk staff were very helpful with information regarding skytrain stops for shopping. The free hotel shuttle (every hour on the hour until 8pm) to the skytrain was great.
I have been and stayed in Bangkok on a few occasions all along Sukhumvit road. The lower end, where all the action happens, especially Soi 11, is only a 10 minute taxi ride away at night. During rush hour, take the skytrain, it's quicker. But believe me, you do not want to stay in these areas, it's dirty and very busy and coming back to the Pan Pacific was a breath of fresh air.
Thank you for the stay, please keep up the good service and excellent facilities.
