I have stayed here 6 or 7 times. That says a lot for someone who spent 150 - 200 nights a year in hotels over the past few years. This is one of my favorites!!! The location is a block from the metro station, which is the best way to travel around Bangkok. 1 stop away is the largest concentration of shopping malls and 3 stops away is the Siam Paragon. I have not taken the new airport shuttle, but I hear its easy. This is a quiet street relative to the excitement and action just one metro station away in either direction.
The hotel lobby is grand, restaurant and piano bar are all first class... In Xmas, they have beautiful decorations that will make you forget that this is a Buddhist country. The pool area upstairs is a great place to unwind and at night they have great lounge singers. The club is a must do here. Pay the extra, it is a great investment as their drinks and happy hour are terrific. The staff here is top notch, even by tough Thailand standards of great service...
The breakfast buffet is one of the best in Asia, catering to Thai, European, Asian, US tastes and a fresh noodle bar! Include it! There is a Chinese restaurant here, it serves the best Peking Duck we have ever had in the world.
