I had the luxury of getting to stay at this hotel on a recent business trip to Bangkok. Before arriving, I was told that was one of the top rated hotels in the world. Once there, it was easy to see why. The staff was so very helpful and pleasant, the hotel is beautiful. A bit of an oasis in the middle of a big city. It was fairly easy to get from the hotel to downtown with the small boat to the sky train and then a quick 15 minute sky train ride to the office. It was also easy to head out for sightseeing by taking the orange flag boats from Oriental Pier right next door. The hotel provided a very good spot for relaxation after a day of work. The only thing, if anything to remark, was that at times the staff was a bit too attentive. Being alone, I was often asked 5-6 times during my breakfast and dinner if everything is OK, or if I need anything more. Asking me 2 times is plenty. Finally, while the breakfast buffet was great, it is the most expensive buffet I have ever experienced, and I would highly advise to just order a la carte from the menu.
