I recently completed a second two-week stay at the Plaza Athenee in Bangkok. The staff and service in this hotel are simply world-class. While there are occasional language miscues, there is never a doubt that the entire team at the hotel understands quality and caring customer service. And the land of smiles is always on full display with the entire Thai and international staff. It is a pleasure to be so warmed greeted as a guest.
I also want to comment on the absolutely superb cuisine at the hotel. From evening happy hours w snacks and afternoon high tea in the executive lounge on floor 26 to a breakfast buffet of the highest quality and variety, the Plaza Athenee for me, a very well-traveled guy, has the best hotel cuisine in the world. Smooth Curry, the Thai restaurant on site, is of particular note as is the poolside cafe, The View.
The hotel gym and spa are well-attended and immaculately clean. The entire property is very well-maintained and super centrally located.
The highest of thumbs up for the people of the Plaza Athenee!
