This hotel reminded me of the Marriott Marquis property in Times Square, New York for all the right reasons - excellent location (on the Asok intersection, near Nana and Siam stations), absolutely electric buzz within the property (business, leisure, corporate, family - all types of guests) and a royal air about the property. The hotel is right opposite the excellent Terminal 21 shopping mall - makes for a very convenient stay.
While the hotel building is relatively old, the rooms and facilities have been well done and the staff-members are absolutely brilliant. The poolside developed on the 3rd floor is well done and isolates you from the noise of the city below. While the breakfast buffet seemed a bit limited, the food quality was top notch. We tried the Indian food at the poolside and were pleasantly surprised by the authenticity of the same.
If you are looking for luxury in a central location in Bangkok, look no further. This hotel is phenomenal in taking care of its residents and I must say we were all spoiled by its service during our 4 day stay.
