There are lots of good hotels in Bangkok, so you would expect this upmarket property be good too. And it is. Service is first rate. It's a big hotel but I am surprised at how intimate it seems.
When demand is high, it can be expensive. But I got my room on this stay for 3999 Baht plus the usual service/taxes on a weekend deal. I think that's great value for a hotel as good as this.
If you like jazz, then Friday night won't disappoint - with a world class jazz pianist, and a trio or quartet playing in the Living Room bar in the evening.
Rooms are spacious but are feeling a bid dated in a town with so many new hotels. Views from the upper floors are terrific.
Breakfast is the hotel's Achilles Heel. The food is fine but the area doesn’t feel big enough for the number of guests. So tables are close together, and getting round the buffet can involve a bit of jostling at times. It's on two levels, and it's worth asking for one of the few seats on the lower level if you like your own space.
The hotel has a particularly nice and secluded pool area with a bar and café.
Location is as good as you could ask for in downtown hotel. It is right in the heart of things on the busy Sukhumvit Road, with market stalls, bars, restaurants and spas aplenty in walking distance. The hotel is directly connected to the Sky Train via a walkway, which also gives access to a brand new shopping complex across the road. And if you are looking to find a tailor, you will be spoilt for choice in this part of town.
Platinum SPG guests get upgraded to a suite if there is one available. Other Platinum benefits are two hours of cocktails an any of the hotels bars in the evening, three items of laundry, breakfast and tea/coffee on demand.
I've stayed here nine times so far, and won’t hesitate to come back. Happy to recommend this hotel.
