Excellent hotel. I would definitely stay there again if I had to book a hotel in Bangkok. Very clean, spacious, excellent facilities and the Siam Paragon shopping centre is just across the road (about 15 steps door to door). My fiancé was quite impressed with the hotel and she's very hard to please.
We stayed in the Residences area of the hotel as we were there for a week. Residences rooms have basic cooking facilities which might be of interest to long term visitors. But there is plenty of cheap yummy foods within minutes walk from the hotel. The room was very spacious with ample room for two people to stay comfortably. We had a room facing inwards towards the pool which was very nice. Breakfast at the hotel was really good. There was a wide selection of oriental and western breakfast options. Breakfast items seemed to change daily so there's plenty of variety there.
I was quite impressed with how pretty the hotel is. The lobby area is very well decorated with a Thai theme yet it's still very modern. The pool area and garden areas were very well maintained.
Our room was very clean and the bathroom was spotless.
The bed was very comfortable and the pillows were nice.
All the staff were very nice and friendly.
My fiancé noticed the bottle of sparkling wine on ice at breakfast. One of the staff members must have noticed her noticing the wine and brought her a glass without her asking. He continued to bring her a glass every morning for the rest of our stay. That's a really nice touch I think.
One thing to take note of: Make sure they provide you with new bottles of water in your minibar as the tap water in Thailand isn't safe to drink. We had a couple of days when we weren't provided new bottles of water. This is quickly remedied by a quick phone call to the reception.
There was free internet in our room. Although it was only 256kb. If we wanted the faster connection it was 600baht per day.
I had to make a number of trips to the airport to collect people and found that taxi's to/from Suvarnabhumi Airport (Bangkok's new airport) cost me between 260 to 350 baht. I found it was cheaper to not take the tollway at 3am in the morning. Not sure if this is the same during the day. If you do take the tollway it will cost you 70baht extra for the toll.
Siam Paragon has a very large food court with lots of different cuisines. But I always like hawker food. If you are after some "street" food then there are a couple of stalls just east of the hotel. Take the road which runs between the hotel and Siam Paragon and head east (turn left as you exit the hotel (side entrance not the front lobby entrance)). It's less than a 100m walk. You'll see some stalls. It's all very nice food. I especially like the soup noodles.
