Did an overnight stay in a Royal Club room on our way out of beloved Bangkok. Booked directly with the hotel and got a great rate.
I prefer more contemporary style hotels but Plaza Athenee was done very well in traditional hotel style.
Room was as expected - comfy bed, high quality linens and curtains (I'm a blackout curtain freak). Simple light operating system bedside - anyone else experienced that middle-of-the-night-in-a-new-hotel-stumble-to-find-the-light-switch-kick-your-toe-give-up-and-go-back-to-bed-thirsty ? Huge user friendly bathroom with good quality self-branded products provided including mouthwash. Club level was good timing - 6 to 8pm which allows for a full day of Bangkok-ing before heading back for bevs and a pretty delicious array of substantial nibbles. Extraordinarily extensive buffet breakfast, yumyum dimsum. Excellent location 4-5min stroll to Ploenchit BTS and 7-10 min stroll to Lumpini Park. 75bt tuktuk ride to SuanLum night market.
However, the main area I must mention is the superb staff. They were the best I have experienced for a very long time. From arrival to departure we were treated with personal and genuine service from all staff we encountered without it being OTT. This was not simply because we were in a Club Room (which so often happens) I stood back and watched the same service offered to every person that walked into this property.
We will definitely continue to use Plaza Athenee and will recommend it to all who travel to Bangkok.
