My partner and I booked the Grand Hyatt Erawan for half our too-short trip to Thailand, spending the other half at the Hyatt Regency Hua Hin. It was a great stay from start to finish, and I can think of very little about the Grand Hyatt that isn't just as it ought to be. From our evening arrival, the soaring lobby and gracious staff made an excellent first impression, one that was borne out throughout our stay.
A great central location means that you can walk to shopping, cultural attractions, and the beautiful Lumphini Park, while the hotel's high profile means that every taxi and tuktuk driver knows exactly where it is. Others haven't liked the older, non-renovated rooms, but our club room on the 18th floor, while compact, was pretty near perfect - spotlessly clean, marvelous mattress, fast wifi, and nice little touches like reading lights on the headboard. Plenty of room in the small but space-efficient closet, and lovely cool wooden floors that echo the wood decoration on display throughout the hotel.
We loved the 17th floor Grand Club - there was nothing that was too much trouble for the ever-smiling staff, who happily booked tours and reserved tables at restaurants around town for us. The breakfast and cocktail hours alike were well stocked with a nice mix of Thai and Western choices; bar service was generous and prompt.
We made good use of the 5th floor pool and spa. The pool is amazingly tranquil for being right in the middle of the madness of Bangkok, but its lush greenery made us feel miles away. Our only quibble is that we like warmer water (most pools in Thailand don't seem to be heated, which I suppose isn't necessary most of the year). We didn't try the spa proper, but the changing facilities are supplied with a first-rate steam room, sauna, and jacuzzi, which were rarely crowded and perfectly maintained.
This was our first trip to Thailand, but when we return (and we will!), the Grand Hyatt will be our base in Bangkok.
