I couldn't decide between Banyan Tree, Shangri La and Lebua but I am very glad that I went with the Lebua at State Tower. The hotel is spotless, very chic and there are enough staff to run a small town! The staff were all very helpful and sweet. On arrival they provided a birthday cake for my partner free of charge and it was the most decadent chocolate cake I have ever tasted! Amazing :) The suite was stunning, 58th floor, very chic and immaculate. Bathroom products by Bulgari - fabulous! All for $119 per night, a bargain! In Dubai this would cost you $500-750 per night.
The location is perfect for access to tourist spots like Siam, river cruises, Grand Palace etc and the transport options from the airport are excellent (we used the city link train connecting to skytrain, total cost just 100 THB for 2 of us).
The famous cafe Mozu breakfast lived up to expectations, better than Fairmont Dubai which is saying something! A million miles better than your typical Sheraton or Hilton buffet. Definitely book a B&B deal!
No riffraff at the hotel, just worldly Europeans and Asian tourists, some business folk too. The rooftop bar/restaurant (65th floor!) is legendary and attracts outside guests in the evening which makes for a real vibe, the prices are high but as a hotel guest you don't need to pay for the awesome experience of being up there. It is up to you whether you want to eat up there. The gym is superb, well above par. Rare to get such a well provisioned gym in a hotel.
Overall this is one of the best high-end 5* hotels I've been to. The atmosphere is so welcoming and if you want to spend just the advertised rate for B&B you won’t end up with any other bill unless you want to indulge yourself.
I will definitely prefer Bangkok and Lebua over Dubai for high end luxury city breaks from now on! Add a few days in the Islands after Bangkok and you have a perfect week adventure.
