After a critical review last year, I accepted an invitation to return and allow the hotel to demonstrate that last years experience was an exception.
Upon arrival i was informed that my booking was partly a priorityclub points redemption stay and as such I would not be afforded Club access on the final night of my three day stay. With regards to this I don't know who was more embarrassed myself or the hotel staff when I pulled out a letter confirming that club access had been granted to me. It was a simple case of failure to communicate, this should not happen at the Intercontinental Bangkok.
I am delighted to report that after the initial embarrassment at check in, everything thereafter was a true delight, the Club lounge remains a quiet oasis of calm away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Bangkok, the staff were attentive without being intrusive, the food and beverages were excellent. The Club lounge in Bangkok whilst not as good as the IC Hong Kong, it certainly is a quality venue worth paying the extra for.
Special mention to the staff at the Fireplace Grill, where I had a wonderful meal with friends, certainly the best waguyu steaks that I have encountered in Bangkok.
Inbetween eating and shopping the rooftop pool was a nice relaxing place to cool off, all in all an excellent stay, will without doubt return soon.More
