The main advantage that this hotel has is its location. The Phra Ram 9 MRT station is literally on the doorstep, and the hotel is connected to the Fortune Town mall with its numerous stores and Tesco Lotus hypermarket. In addition, the expressway to the new airport is just minutes away, so on a good day, the journey is only around 20 minutes. Though it'd be best to allow 40 minutes in case of traffic...
I think the hotel represents very good value for money. Certainly not the best 4* hotel I have stayed at in Bangkok, but the rooms are fairly spacious and very clean. Breakfast was a bit of a disappointment overall - I went downstairs and was told that due to the discounted rate I'd paid for the room, I'd have to have breakfast on the 9th floor instead :( Here the service was extremely slow, however on a good note, the staff were very helpful when I said I was a vegetarian and asked the chef to prepare me with special items.
Wireless broadband internet access is a little costly - other hotels I've stayed in offer free access in the lobby, whereas the Fortune doesn't.
