LOCATION: A taxi ride from the Suvarnabhumi International Airport to the hotel takes 30 minutes outside of rush hours. The ride will cost around 250-300 THB and another 70 THB for the two highway tolls. The InterContinental Hotel Bangkok is centrally located with a direct connection to the Gaysorn Shopping Centre and it is less than a minute walk from the Chit Lom Skytrain station.
HOTEL: Dated, but clean and comfortable rooms. View from the rooms facing the Grand Hyatt Erawan Hotel is nicer than the ones facing the Holiday Inn Hotel. Breakfast is good and the staff here is courteous and efficient. The check-in and check-out process generally could have been faster. The concierges are generally good, especially the female ones. I had only one bad experience with a concierge at this hotel during the New Year’s Eve of 2011, but I have not seen him the last couple times I stayed there in February and June 2011. Not sure if he is still working there or not.
CONCLUSION: The Ratchaprasong area where the hotel is situated is an excellent location for shopping and dining, but it is also the Red Shirts’ preferred demonstration site. Lately, the demonstration around the Ratchaprasong intersection had been short. Nonetheless, it is wise to contact the hotel prior to your arrival to enquire whether the Red Shirts have announced any planned demonstration there or not. The InterContinental Hotel Bangkok offers good, clean rooms and the service is generally good. Recommended.
