Having spent a total of a month at this hotel after a shorter visit in the past, I can't say enough about this tremendous property. The rooms are immaculately kept, the service is smooth and thoughtful without being overburdensome, and the cost is a notch below other 5 star hotels in Bangkok, particularly if you opt for the stay 2 nights, get 1 free suite package.
This is a beautiful hotel, in an excellent location (just removed from the hustle and bustle of Sukhumvit Road), with a very high level of service at every position from front desk, bell boys, security, maids, and waitresses. The gym is small, but adequate for cardio work and light weight workouts with the latest in exercise equipment (loved being able to play games on the elliptical and bike machines). The pool is beautiful with nice views of Bangkok, and while one restaurant won't open until later this month or next month, the Cafe is quite nice with good food and excellent service along with a nice breakfast.
The hotel is next to the US Embassy and a 5 minute walk from Lumpini Park (a negative while the demonstrators occupy the park), so there are some safety concerns (though we didn't have any issues during our 1 month stay). There is a continual set of background music, chants, etc from the demonstrators that can be a bit distracting. Across the street is the China Resource building with a small mall and a grocery store, a few restaurants, a bookstore and a Starbucks and ATMs which is convenient. And, the hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the nearest BTS rail station (it is hot, so you can opt for the hotel shuttle van which runs every 30 mins - I never found it available).
Bottom line, this is a wonderful choice for a tourist, a business person, or someone staying longer in Bangkok. I highly recommend this hotel.
