The Intercontinental wins on location, location, location if you are in Bankok for some qiock shopping: accross the street from a large mall and nextt to one of the best departmetn stores in Bangkok--with a great supermarket.
Rooms are nice, but there are some quirks: I arrived at 7:30 at night, and had to wait for the room to be checked. This was about 2 hours later than my intended arrival time due to a delayed flight, and there really should not have been a wait. Second, I had pre-paid and every time I wanted something, like wifi access, the first response was your room rate does not include this. The more appropriate response would have been to indicate that (i) it was free in the lobby and (ii) that there would be a charge for in-room wifi.
The hotel web site lists pedicures and manicures, which are in fact not available. Having just spent a week diving, I had broken and busted nails in need of remedial care. Given that it is still on the web site, it would be nice if those lovely peaople at the spa did not just tell you it was unavailable, but also gave you the name/location of placesd near by that can meet your needs in this regard. I tried to access the wifi to find a place, but it was not working uin the room at that time, regarless of whether I paid or not. Finally, when sonmeone calls and says they cannot connect, please do not respond with "have you turned on your computer".
Another oddity is that if you pay for breakfast when you check in it is one price, abd about 50% more if you simply walk in in the morning. Does not really make sense, and it leaves you feeling nickel and dimed.
Will I stay there again? Possibly, because the locationis good.
