We spent seven fantastic nights at the Bangkok Shangri La. There were fabulous views of the Chao Phraya river and cityscape from our high-floor balcony room. The bed, room and housekeeping services were all outstanding.
The Horizon Club service was superb with refreshing drinks and light snacks available anytime and hot food and cocktails nightly. They staff was very helpful and eager to please. We also had a fantastic dinner at the on-property Salathip Thai restaurant that also featured a great Thai dancing demonstration. The on-property Next2 restaurant had a wide variety of very good Asian and Western food choices and fantastic views of the river with both indoor and outdoor seating. Even the lobby bar had fantastic river views and is a great place to have lunch or a drink.
We arranged several private tours through the hotel and they were fantastic. The temple and floating market tours were amazing. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and did a great job of conveying historical context and cultural significance to the beautiful sites we visited. We saw so much more and gained a great understanding by having a private guide.
The river side location is scenic and relaxing while at the same time very convenient to the adjacent MRT station and public dock. From the MRT station you have quick and easy access to much of the city while avoiding the legendary rush hour traffic. The public dock has access to water taxi's and to a highly recommended and inexpensive tourist river boat. It stops at many of the main tourist sites while avoiding city traffic. The private Shangri La dock has a complimentary private shuttle boat that visits River City during the day and Asiatique in the evening.
The service was truly outstanding and the management and staff made our visit fantastic from our arrival to the hotel car service to the airport.
