Stay at the Four Points in Sukhumvit, it's also a Le Meridien hotel from the starwood hotels group, but with service miles better than the Plaza Athenee.
Business travel can be quite difficult in Bangkok because of the heavy traffic and the difficulties in hailing a cab. The staff in this hotel was not very helpful and would push for the hotel limo service. It's simply ridiculous to pay 1500THB for a 50THB ride in a metered taxi.
The staff we found out were simply pretending to hail a cab, my colleague who even went out on the street to get us one was even discouraged by the security staff from getting the usual metered cabs. It's a full service hotel, the Four Points which is only a category 4/5 starwood hotel has better service and I didn't wait for a cab for more than 30 minutes.
I will not be staying in this hotel again.
