I stayed here with my husband and 2 teenage daughters 3-7 April. We requested interconnecting rooms and got them, and we had superior sky rooms on 26th floor- amazing views at night. We arrived around 8.30pm, shattered from our flight so we ordered room service, which came promptly, was reasonably priced and was delicious. The guy who brought it set it out beautifully on the trolley for us.
The rooms were lovely, and so was the bathroom, not having a bath didn't bother us as we mostly shower anyway, the showers were great. The beds were huge and very comfortable and the rooms clean, with everything you could need.
Breakfast was gorgeous, we loved the Thai aspect, with sushi, miso soup amongst the usual omelettes and pastries. Really impressed.
The 'wow' factor for us was also the infinity pool. We went after our tiring days out to watch the sunset and relax- it was truly fantastic looking out at the buildings and sunset from so high up. We also went here after going out for dinner in the evening, for cocktails and somewhere nice to sit- it was lovely. On the last night I lost my sunglasses here, and my husband went to look for them, but they hadn't been found. (Since getting home, I have emailed the hotel, and they have located them (I am delighted because they are good ones with my prescription in) The hotel have been good at communicating with me- my only hope is that sending them to England won't cost me too much money! I am waiting for them to let me know on Monday!)
Regarding the location of the hotel, for me I felt it was perfect. I prefer that it is away from the 'main' shopping and night life area, and when we asked the hotel reception to recommend somewhere to eat, you could walk very easily to a few restaurants, we chose Thanying and the food was absolutely wonderful, really lovely. The access to the skytrain was perfect, and one stop from the river and just 4 stops to main shopping was so easy, so I don't understand complaints about the location. If you read reviews and check on maps before you go, you should understand the location, and choose somewhere more central if that's what you are looking for.
I spoke to other people about where they stayed in Bangkok, and people who had spent a lot more money staying at Banyan Tree and various other 'named' hotels didn't sound as satisfied as we were at Eastin Grand.
I would stay at this hotel again and recommend it to everyone I know who visits Bangkok, we loved this hotel.
