As a regular visitor to Bangkok, we often stay at the Royal Orchid, because it's got the most stunning views over the river. As a Starwood Club member, we use the Club Lounge on the top floor and it's fascinating sitting twentysomething floors above the river watching the neverending traffic way below. The hotel has a shuttle boat that connects with the Skytrain which is very easy to use, so being out of the main entertainment and shopping district is not really a problem. And for a lot of fun try a tuk-tuk rather than a taxi to get back to the hotel with all your shopping, it's twice as fast, and much more Real Bangkok!
The hotel is standard Sheraton fare, too much oversized furniture .... but hey, the wall of glass overlooking the river is worth banging shins on beds etc. All the rooms overlook the river, so watch out when you get invited to pay a premium (or upgrade) to a "view room" as a travel agent sold me on my first visit years ago. We love the hotel's Thara Thong restaurant - especially the outdoor seating over the river - it's one of the highlights of every visit to Bangkok!
