We ended up canceling a different hotel reservation for the Mandarin because of the ongoing protests in Bangkok. This place is perfect and lived up to its reputation.
Since we almost missed our connection at LAX our bags didn't make it to Bangkok. Thankfully, we had a change of clothes and toiletries. Anyways, upon checking in, the front desk asked for the baggage information so they could help track our bags down. In addition, they sent up an emergency kit for people who didn't have their luggage. Toiletries, underwear etc. So genius and nice.
The location is perfect and access to the water is so convenient. Rooms were clean, views of the river and overall great. We were there for only 3 days and the staff recognized us and greeted us warmly each time. They kept us up to date on our luggage tracking and made sure it was delivered promptly when it finally arrived.
I have never stayed at a Mandarin, but this place does the name justice. I would highly recommend anyone to stay there.
