I was fortunate enough to have organized an event for over 70 persons at Royal Orchid Sheraton during the Loy Krathong Festival. The festival could be translated "Floating Crown" or "Floating Decoration", and comes from the tradition of making buoyant decorations which are then floated on a river. It is a day to let go of unpleasant pasts and bad luck and "send" them away down the stream.
The location of the hotel is by the Chao Phraya River which I regard as the soul of the city, is just perfect for the festival. Although there were big groups of patrons visiting on the night, the hotel staff kept things well under control.
We had amazing Thai dinner at the Thara Thong Restaurant at the hotel, it is worth the experience - festivity wise and gastronomically. The famous Wat Arun Temple is only 10 minute boat ride away from the hotel. Best time to go is late afternoon followed by a Tom Yum Martini at sala rattanakosin bar opposite the temple and enjoy the breath taking sunset view of the river and temple.
