We have a great one night stay enroute from Thailand to Europe, and were very happy. we upgraded to Le Royal Club room which was on 28th floor, and had access to a very good lounge, with afternoon tea, cakes etc and evening canapees with complimentart beer, wine, cocktails. In fact the canapees were so good we had to delay dinner to late evening as we were pretty stuffed.
Lounge staff were terrific, arranged spa treatments, lent us DVD movies (player in our room), advised on destinations and trips in the city. Free wifi and all day soft drinks.
The main attraction really was a fabulous breakfast in the main Rain Cafe. Our lounge access meant breakfast was included. Japanase, Thai, Chinsese breakfast as well as egg chef and a huge spread. Also loved the Jean Gorges taster dishes which were served throughout breakfast. Do try the muesli, I didn't know muesli could taste this good.
After breakfast we had a short spell in the pool, which was a nice retreat in this city hotel.
Skytrain is walking distance (5 mins) but I would not use it with baggage due to a lot of stairs. Skytrain is great in Bangkok rush hour when traffic is at a standstill in this area.
