Staying in Bangkok for 4 nights in early April, with my family (2 adults, 2 kids ages 9 and 11).
Looking at staying in 2-bedroom suites in either the Marriott Mayfair Apartments (which are right next to Lumpini Park) OR the Lebua at State Tower (which seems to be behind the Shangri La on the river).
This shortlist is the result of helpful feedback on this forum!
Can anyone tell me which location is generally best for getting around (taxi, skytrain), and which gives the best impression of the city? It's our first visit. We'll have a day with one of Tong's guide in Bangkok, a day to wander, then a day out the city at floating market/tiger temple with tong's guide again, , then a final day to potter around.
One final question (which will probably mess up my hols but I feel I should ask!) - will I miss out on the "feel" of Bangkok by staying in these two hotels? Are they lacking Thai atmosphere?
Thanks in advance
