I stayed for three(3) nights at the Shangrila Bangkok Horizon Club room with my two(2) teenage boys. I am thankful that the protest I read on the news largely did not affect this part of Bangkok. My only encounter with the protest crowd was on Dec 4 very briefly at the MBK BTS station where I heard loud chanting of some kind on the street. We quickly left on the train and there after is mostly peaceful.
This hotel is generally good but when compared to other Shangrila and Kerry Hotels Horizon Club rooms in nearby regions like Manila, HK, Beijing, Shanghai, etc. I find the interior of this hotel dated and missing a couple of items like fax/copier machine and daily change of fruits.
The Horizon lounge afternoon tea and cocktail spread could be better. I find the food spread very limited unlikely excellent spread offered at Shangrila makati. The breakfast spread is average nothing special. I recommend the hotel go take a look at Shangrila Shanghai...excellent spread and one will not get tired even after a week stay.
One thing that stands out is the Chi spa...the best among all the other Chi spa I visited.
I think Shangrila Bangkok has a lot of potential to be the very best. Given the excellent location, well connected to BTS station, etc....hope to see some improvement before I return.
