The hotel is only 200 m walk from Phaya Thai station, the last stop of the special airport train. It's a 30 minute ride from the airport for only 45 BHT (beats a cab ride which can take over an hour depending on time and day). You need to walk as the hotel only offers (free) transfers to the station but no pick ups. If you do take a cab the hotel used be called Siam City and some drivers still know it under its old name.
The hotel itself is good and modern if a little nondescript and with little personality. I often judge a hotel by my memory of the room a few days after my visit and without the help of a photograph I have problems visualizing the interior. The room itself was large and functional, with reasonably sized writing desk and good wireless connection. The wardrobe space is OK for single occupancy, but would be rather small for two people staying longer.
There are various restaurants, such as Thai, Italian, Chinese (which unfortunately serves shark fin dishes), a coffee shop for small snacks and cakes, and a pool area. Along the main road (Si Ayutthaya) and the little lane (Soi Loet Punya) behind the hotel you will find plenty of street food ‘restaurants’ – literally one after the other, all busy and catering mainly to local people.
Tourist attractions, such as the Victory monument or Jim Thompson's House are 10-20 walk
