Just ending a great 1st weekend in Bangkok.
The Westin is in a great location to tailoring shops, malls, and trains system which was easy to navigate and safe. They were very accommodating. I needed a refrigerator for some medicine and they cleared out the mini bar quickly and offered their refrigerator to make sure everything stayed cool.
Special kudos to Nui at the concierge desk was spectacular and made our stay and Bangkok very easy.
I wasn't too impressed with the Calypso show at Asiatique. Go to Asiatique for the view, restaurants, and ferry ride.
Long tail was a nice restaurant, 5 minute taxi ride from hotel, if you are looking for a restaurant whose kitchen is open late (11:30pm) and views of the city.
I would ask concierge to arrange for a hired taxi to take you around for sightseeing, no need to haggle at each stop and it is nice to have a air conditioned car waiting for you. We hired one for 5-6 hours for 1600 Baht.
Also, if you are coming to have tailoring don't just take the concierge recommendation just do your own research.
Restaurant food - I only ate breakfast and it wasn't that good and it is the only reason I'm giving this place 4 stars.
