I have stayed at this hotel several times now, as I like to be close to the airport before I fly home. The rooms are immmaculately clean, and the staff are generally friendly and polite. Personally I wouldn't eat there, but that is down to the amount of varied restaurants that are right on the doorstep. With the traffic problems in Bangkok, it is great to be right in the centre of the city and only a 5 minute walk to the Skytrain which gets you around. It also has free wifi throughout.
The downside is that it is extremely expensive compared to many other better quality hotels, who have adjusted there prices during the economic downturn.
I did have a problem there, due to me having a late night flight, and hadnt realised that they charge a 1/2 day rental if you want to stay 4 hours after check out (2pm) and a full days rental if you want longer than that (i wanted 6 hours, which is 1/4 of a 24 hour day). This hadnt been made clear, and considering the hotel was mainly empty I would have expected some leniancy, but it took an email complaint to the director to get this reversed, and then been told to expect it next time, which I will have to think about as British Airways flights are always just after midnight.
All in all, it is a good hotel for a first time short visit to Bangkok, but if you are staying more than one night, then I would definitely look around for a hotel with more facilities (spa etc) and with views.
