We spent three nights at this wonderful hotel. Despite a late arrival we were warmly and efficiently greeted. Our room was fairly spaciously and very comfortable. There is an exceptional attention to detail in designing the rooms, including a single control for everything (lights, temperature, wake up alarm, etc). We did not use many of the hotel's amenities, although the concierge was very helpful.
We were there over Christmas, and the staff was certainly in a celebratory mood. Each guest received a large themed macaron and a stocking full of delightful treats on Christmas Eve.
The hotel is next to the Phloen Chit Skytrain station and about 15 minutes walk (or 2 Skytrain stops) from the Siam Center and CentralWorld shopping centers. Getting to the main tourist attractions (Grand Palace area) requires Skytrain and boat ride, so you are a ways away. Although there are a couple of small (but good) food outlets in the building, you are not particularly close to areas with a lot of local restaurants.
Overall we had a fantastic time at the hotel and the Okura would be my first choice in Bangkok or anywhere they have a property.
