For those of you who know Bangkok, location is imperative due to the traffic (you can spend your life in a traffic jam). Location is where Emporium comes into its own. This part of Bangkok is the perfect position; easy walking to distance to bars, restaurants, legitimate massage places/spas, great nightlife. Having lived in Bangkok for two years, this area was where we spent 50% of our time. It has everything - it is the 'real' Bangkok - without the sleazy side...(although if you want to find it, it is still close by).
Furthermore, you can walk through the Emporium Mall directly connected to the sky train (BTS) which is so clean and air conditioned and our preferred mode of transport when in town it takes you pretty much everywhere you need to go and you can taxi the last bit of journey if needed. Emporium department store has a paid kids play area and also has a grocery store which is very well stocked and you can use the trolley to take the purchases directly to your suite or get them delivered. Emporium also has a food hall with great dining choices, other eateries within the mall. The Emporium towers has a Starbucks and Au Bon Pain and LittleGym classes for kids of all ages. If you are traveling with children, the Benjasiri Park that is along side Emporium has two play areas that are very well done and safe for children. One dedicated is for kids 4 years and under and the other 4+ years. The Emporium Suites also have a GP on call that makes house visits if needed from the nearby Samitivej Hospital. Emporium also has a movie theatre. It literally has everything.
We had reserved a one bedroom suite but were very grateful to be upgraded to a deluxe one bedroom suite. It had 1.5 bathrooms, a huge living/dining area, separate kitchen, separate laundry room and entry hall with cupboard that fits golf clubs. The pool is clean and great for kids but the "playground" is just a dedicated area with no toys. The gym was great but have to admit that we didn't use it.
Service was daily and through; which isn't an easy task with our one year old. Service anywhere in Thailand is always impeccable and with a smile.
The pillows aren't great which affected the sleep quality for us.
