Hotel help

We were all booked, air, hotels everything! Of course we were arriving in a week and the airline decides to cancel flights, change other flights, etc. we are scheduled to stay at airport hotel in Bangkok for one night(already booked and paid for) as we are heading for Chang mai the next morning. Now we will arrive a day early. I really don't want to stay at the Amari for 2 nights. Is there a hotel that anyone can recommend for the first night - close to shopping, restaurants, etc. just not close to protest sights. Since it's only one afternoon and night we really don't have a budget for it, just a nice hotel.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

I'd recommend lohas suites, soi 2 sukhumvit. Plenty of bars and restaraunts In that area and close to sky train, Siam and national stadium only a couple of stops away where there are plenty of shopping malls. The hotel is nice with a roof top pool, a jacuzzi and sauna. You can look it up on TA.

Which airport are you first arriving at and later which airport are you flying out of for Chiang Mai? Taking a baby with you?

Amari Boulevard Hotel. NANA area. Walk to many things including supermarkets, malls, nightlife, street vendors, etc. Nana Skytrain nearby.

Baiyoke Boutique Hotel. Short walk from Airport Rail Link at Ratchaprorop. Lots of shopping in this PRATUNAM area. Rail Link connects with Suvarnabhumi Airport. Airport Rail Link also connects with Skytrain at Phayathai. Use Skytrain for other areas in Bangkok.

For hotel help always mention a price range to weed out any suggestions too cheap or too expensive.

Up to you.

I stayed in amari boulevard, it's not bad but I think lohas suites is nicer, similar price range and not far from each other.

Thank you so much for your responses, I will look up those hotels. Infidelal, I was wandering why you would think we were bringing a baby. Then I realized our picture had our grand baby in it. LOL . It's actually an old pic, she's already 2 1/2 years old. And no she won't be comming. As far as budget, I'm thinking no more than $150.00 CAN a night.

Thanks again

"I was wandering why you would think we were bringing a baby."

Saw the baby in the photo. When you have a baby with you then you have to worry about baby food and other baby requirements. That's why a supermarket might be handy to have nearby.

It's only one night so that any hotel you book should be okay even at half your budget price. Bangkok is not like NYC or Tokyo for prices. Besides it's not like buying a house with a 20 year mortgage. Millions of tourists are using hotels $30 and below. (Rooms with A/C, private bathroom and even TV begin around $20 or 600 baht.)

Landmark Hotel isn't too bad.

Have fun.
