We moved here from a disastrous experience in China and couldn't have found a bigger contrast!
Fabulous room with all new fixtures and furnishings. Clean bedding and towels every day. Great air-con. Complimentary bottled water, fruit, tea/coffee etc, washing powder and toiletries all replenished daily. The washing machine and tumble drier were quiet and efficient. Gave us a chance to get some washing done! Decent view of the city without the noise. The only downside (if it can be called that) is that there is no restaurant or bar here but Sarah Jane's, just a few yards down the street offer a friendly welcome to enjoy good, inexpensive food. They are open until 11pm so no need to rush back from a day in the city... We were told that the Empire Tower just down the street, also has a restaurant but we didn't eat there so can't comment.
The staff proved that this is genuinely the country of smiles.... they were marvellous in every respect and, since it was my husband's birthday on the day we checked out, the doormen, office staff and other staff all came into the office at 6.30am to wish my husband a happy birthday (We were checking out early as we were going on a day-trip but this didn't faze the staff at all. They could not have been more professional or friendly)
Didn't have time to use the facilities, so can't comment on them but would be most surprised if they weren't also top notch!
The Marriott is ideally placed for forays into the city as it is only about 100 yards from Chong Nonsi skytrain station, and it only costs 20 baht to get to the centre...... Don't miss a visit to the MBK centre - multiple floors of little shops within a huge mall..... many originals but many more fakes... and don't forget to bargain - it is expected and great fun!
All in all a most memorable visit to Bangkok - would be our recommended accommodation choice for everyone. Can't fault it!!!
