I stayed at the Holiday Inn Bangkok for a week in a superior room. First off, the room is very comfortable, with a large shower, quality bed, and outlets that accept US plugs. The upper half of the bathroom corner is a window covered by wooden blinds, and while they're obviously there for aesthetic purposes, I had a tendency to walk into said blinds while aiming for the bed. Sort of a hazard there. The hotel provides complimentary bottled water and the usual instant coffee and tea. The miniature refrigerator is packed with items that you pay for, however, so there isn't all that much space if you decide to stock up on things from Big C--I wound up fitting a bottle of milk and two packets of fruit at a time.
This hotel does charge for internet, which is a terrible inconvenience, unless you have another deal worked out through IHG Rewards or a group block. The food downstairs also adds up, and you may be better off visiting street vendors just around the corner if you're on a bit of a budget. Additionally, the maid had a tendency to take used robes without replacing them, though two phone calls to the front desk fixed that issue.
Speaking of the front desk, don't be hesitant to ask the concierge for help--he booked us some outstanding Thai massages at Health Land and made other recommendations to our group.
The greatest advantage of this hotel is probably its location: right at the end of the driveway is an entrance to the Chitlom BTS Skytrain station, and a short walk away is the Ratchathewi, so you're pretty much set for any place you want to go in Bangkok.
