Thumbs up for the St Regis Bangkok.
Overall service was excellent. Check-in/out was fast and competent. Not only do the staff look great in their tailored outfits, they have lovely personalities as well. Our butler, Paul, was fantastic. He arranged a lovely amenity for us as we were travelling on our honeymoon and was always helpful. Concierge was very good as well. My only negative comment would be about the breakfast service at Viu. We did not have breakfast included in our room and the staff seemed to have a little difficulty handling our a la carte orders. However, this was a very minor issue that I'm sure the hotel will deal with given that many reviewers have similar comments about breakfast service at Viu.
Of course this depends where you want to be, but I thought the location was excellent. The skytrain is right off the 2nd floor of the hotel and given the traffic in Bangkok, this is an excellent alternative to taxis and tuk-tuks
We were upgraded to a one-bedroom (not sure if this was related to my being SPG gold or because we were travelling on our honeymoon). The room was gorgeously appointed and although they did not have any non-smoking suites available, they brought in an air-purifier which dramatically reduced the smell of smoke.
(With regard to transport form the airport, I would highly recommend that you use one of the transportation options provided by the hotel. The AOT option is relatively inexpensive and light years better than hailing a cab at the airport – the cabs tend to be quite dilapidated and you have to deal with drivers who are constantly trying to negotiate with you.)
