We had booked another hotel in Bangkok and were so disappointed upon arrival that we decided to switch (walking away from a night's deposit). We moved to the Oriental Residence and were completely satisfied. The facilities are operating room clean and the location is peaceful, surrounded on three sides by the grounds of the enormous U.S. embassy. What really set the hotel apart is the staff, proactive and friendly. When we mentioned in passing that we were vegetarians, the staff took it upon themselves to create a list of appropriate restaurant options. We did not try the restaurant but the pool area, although compact, is really pleasant with wonderful city views. The rooms and lobby have a timeless mix of modern and classic architecture. Very classy. One warning: this is not a casual hotel. If you like to stroll around in shorts and sandals, you will feel out of place. In fact, the hotel has a formal dress code for both the pool area and lobby. This is refreshing to see after having stayed at so many hotels where the riff-raff spoil the ambiance. We observed that the guests take the behavior rules seriously. Anyway, a phenomenal place to stay. Much recommended. Nearly locations: Lumphini park, US embassy, Yummy Tummy restaurant. 15 min walk to Skytrain and subway stops.
