I stayed here for three nights on the recommendation of a friend.
The first thing that struck me about the Emporium Suites was the generous size of their rooms; or, at least, the room I had (and I heard there are even larger ones) - which was a wonderfully quiet one down the end of the hall. The room was simply decorated and had a sitting area, a dining area, and a small kitchenette. I did very much love the thick, plush carpet in the middle of the room; and I must say that the bed was quite the most comfortable that I had ever remembered sleeping on while on holiday. The room and bathroom were very clean. Breakfast was served on what I presumed to be the 24th floor (labelled EL) and was very good and worth waking up for.
The location of the hotel is extremely convenient, being right next to a large shopping mall and a BTS station - all of which are linked by covered walkways.
I experienced no problems communicating with any of the hotel staff. They all understood English well enough and I had little trouble understanding them in return.
The hotel (and the room) does show slight signs of age - though there is nothing major to complain about - and I found this to be most obvious at the pool and spa area. The bathroom, I felt, was small compared to the size of the room. The doormen were sometimes inconsistent... but again, these are all minor nitpicks on an otherwise excellent hotel choice.
Some people might be put off by the fact that the hotel does not offer Wi-Fi access without charging some abominable sum. There is a small internet cafe at the adjoining Emporium mall that offers internet for a much smaller fee.
Overall, it was certainly a good experience and I would return to this hotel because of the bed (oh, lovely lovely), the breakfast, and the location.
