Big news since I last stayed is the new pool.
I've been staying at the Westin longer than an other hotel in Bangkok, and it's nice to see it get some investment. The new pool area is very nice - not just a simple refresh but a complete remodeling. I've uploaded a picture taken from the Sheraton across the road.
I've reviewed the hotel before, and there is not much to add. My only comment is about the rooms. They've stood the test of time well because they are quite contemporary. But, no matter how fond I am of this hotel, I think rooms are at the point where some money needs to be spent on them.
Location is the key with the Westin. Like the Sheraton opposite, it's in a great spot. Right next to the Skytrain, and now a brand new shopping complex. Not to mention all the night life, market traders and health spas.
The Westin Grande is a nice hotel in a great location. But it's beginning to show its age - particularly in a city with lots of excellent and very new hotels. As long the price reflects it's age in relation to other hotels, I'm very happy to stay there.
