Stayed her for 2 nights last week after backpacking the islands and Cambodia, one word amazing!!! Let me preface this by saying that both my wife and myself are General Managers of Marriott properties in the states, this means a few things, 1) our standards of service and rooms are very high (although thailand we tone the service expectation down a bit) 2) we travel on a discount at Marriott properties and we expect to get the noisy room in between the elevator and the linen closet and we are ok with that. We were traveling asia on our honeymoon, and had noted our reservation as such. This normally means little as again we are on a discount, we have stayed at several marriott properties on special occasions but we never expect special treatment for them, again because we are not at full rate. But this place is not your average Marriott. Upon arrival we were greeted by name, with a bow and a handshake, the front desk staff were very accomodating and welcoming, and their service level is worthy of any stateside Ritz Carlton (and this is Thailand remember). Upon arriving to the room we were blown away, i have stayed at some of the best Marriotts on the planet, and the only one that i can think of with better facilities is the cosmopolatian in Las Vegas, but this was right there with it. Huge garden tub, massive TV, real rain shower, soft bed, leather top desk, unrivaled view of the bangkok skyline, well stocked mini bar with beer glasses and all. To top it off we were greeted with a peice of cake saying happy honeymoon hand painted on chocolate, a pleasent surprise that they surely did not have to do for 2 employees. They have cards at the front desk that translate the main attractions from Thai to English for your cab driver, they ensure all cab drivers turn on their meters (a common scam in bangkok), its located in the most upscale part of town, but not far from anything all the sights are a 200 baht tuk tuk ride away. We ate here one night and the food was very good, i also stopped by the bar for a drink before we left, service was fantastic, prices were resonable, and it was a beautiful public space. I say this from the bottom of my heart as a Marriott vet and a very seasoned traveller, this must be one of the best hotels in Asia if not in the world, it would be just as at home in NYC, London, or Paris as it is in Bangkok staff and all. I would put this place against almost any Marriott in the system. To the managment team, thank you, you should be very proud of what your a putting out because you can rest assured it some of the best anywhere. To potential guests, i dont know what they usually charge for this place, but its worth double that, if you get a chance this is a hotel stay you will not soon forget. Thank you for being the hotel highlight of our honeymoon.
