I think this hotel has been modelled on a European architecture, and not that cheesy type you can get in Asia sometimes, but it has been done in a pristine way. Even down to the cafe downstairs ( they ask you to keep your cutlery in true French fashion!).
We were met as we disembarked our aircraft (literally, as we stepped off the plane) and were taken through all the relevant checks and luggage collection.
We had a 2 bedroom suite which was beautiful with amazing views over the city and the park, with the most comfortable beds I think I have ever slept in (including mine at home, depressingly) and the service (all the way down to the evening "bed turning down" service) is impeccable.
Not knowing Bangkok very well, the concierge was very helpful in organising the few things I wanted to do, even managing to get us a table at vertigo (the 68th floor Restuarant @ the banyan tree hotel) at really short notice.
The only (small) downside is that the pool area is small and so can get busy quickly, although if you're not there for swimming then it's not an issue!
All in all, a great place to stay if you like your home comforts and a great place to escape the havoc of Bangkok!
