Stayed at The Sukhothai for 4 nights over the Easter Weekend (which co-incided with the Song Kran Festival). This place delivers a wonderful experience by matching wonderful attentive service to match the timeless and elegant decor and it is the attention to detail in both that makes this hotel so special. The room we had was an Executive Suite which is an open plan suite with an intelligently planned layout which feels like a luxury Thai residence rather than just another hotel room that could be in any hotel, anywhere in the world. The hotel is set in beautifully manicured gardens with many water features. Which provides beautiful settings for the restaurants. We dined in their buffet restaurant for breakfast (and always managed to get a seat over looking the water) and their Thai Restaurant - Celadon, which serves delicious and flavoursome Thai food with out "dumbing down" the dishes for foreigners (farang). Concierge was super helpful and made some really great recommendations for us for dinners and things to do and see. They were also very helpful with dealing with the dreadful taxi drivers, who I believe can qualify for being the worst in the WORLD. The reason they are so bad is because they ALWAYS try to rip you off.
The Sukhothai's location is very good because you can nip next door to the roof top bar at the Banyon Tree (not a good Banyon Tree property - it would have been OK in it's day but now it's just a bit blah), The Metropolitan is also in the neighbourhood and as much as it is new and ticks boxes for modern luxury design, I found it a little souless when we went to try out their spa. It looks like an office block (which works for The Mondrian LA and St Martins Lane London) but just doesn't have the class or quality experience of the Sukhothai.
Finally, the pool area is knockout and health club is also first rate.
