Stayed at the SO for the second time about a year apart. First time was under the soft opening, second at the end of August. We stayed in a club roo mboth times, and really injoyed the club lounge access. You get a great a la carte breakfast and also complimentary afternoon tea and early evening drinks and snacks. Not to miss.
We were also very happy with the service from the club room staff, who does a great job. However, both times it was quite a hassle before the staff at the front desk could decide that we had booked a club room and send us there for check-in. The second time I mentioned it straight away, but it took at least 10 min anyway. Not efficient and not very professional.
Only tried the red oven buffet the first time, but it was really good then, though it was over a year ago. Great spread and excellent quality.
The only real issue we have had is the rooms. Design is great, have tried metal and water and they are beautiful, but the design is not matched in quality. Our room during the soft opening already had mold in the shower, and our water theme room that we had the second time had a distinct smell of mold. It seems like the ventilation was not enough to keep moist away, and at several places the construction was made so that water was trapped for longer periods of time. We stayed one night both times, and felt like more than that would not be possible, especially in the water room. That was probably not the intention with the theme.
Could go back for food and drinks, but with the supply of hotels in Bangkok we will definately be able to find a better room for the same or less money next time.
