While I have stayed here multiple times, my most recent stay at the Renaissance Bangkok was 17-21 Feb, it's my home away from home when I travel to Bangkok for work or play. Located at the Ratchaprasong intersection, you are literally steps from most of the major shopping areas. You have multiple BTS stations (Chit Lom, Siam and Ratchadamri stations) - which came in handy since the intersection was closed off, I even took the train to Phaya Thai and connected to the Airport Rail Link - 45 baht? How can you NOT take the train back to the airport!
I used to stay at the JW Marriott when I had to travel to BKK, until the Renaissance was opened. The area around the hotel is so much cleaner and convenient, you just really can't go wrong.
The current political protests are happening in the area but the hotel was keeping guests informed with what was going on - you can avoid most of the crowds by using the BTS and the skywalks, and really other than the road closure and a bit of noise you heard while walking around the area, the crowds were really not a factor - There are also a lot of extra street food vendors in the area (even a guy with a pizza oven!) - a lot more than are normally in the area, so this was a plus!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At the Renaissance Bangkok Ratchaprasong Hotel, guests are greeted by a 200 metre exotically landscaped driveway that leads them to our iconic blue glass building. Set back from the hustle and bustle, you're in Bangkok's most vibrant neighbourhood yet secluded in your very own oasis. The hotel is a stone's throw away from Central Chidlom, Central World and Siam Paragon, Bangkok's swankiest malls, and just around the corner from the Chit Lom BTS Station. โรงแรมเรเนซองส์ กรุงเทพฯ ราชประสงค์ยินดีต้อนรับคุณด้วยทางเข้าน้ำตกยาวกว่า 200 เมตรสู่ตัวโรงแรมซึ่งมีความเป็นเอกลักษณ์ด้วยตัวตึกสร้างด้วยกระจกสีน้ำเงิน ใจกลางย่านธุรกิจ และเป็นศูนย์รวมแหล่งช้อปปิ้ง ทั้งห้างสรรพสินค้าเซ็นทรัลชิดลม ห้างสรรพสินค้าเซ็นทรัลเวิลด์ สยามพารากอน และร้านค้าอื่นๆ อีกมากมาย เดินทางสะดวกสบายโดยรถไฟฟ้าบีทีเอสสถานีชิดลม ... more less
