I spent one Friday night at this W while on business in Bangkok. Checked in at about midnight at a party atmosphere which is somewhat expected at a W. The Woobar is right next to the front desk and quite loud in a good way - except it can be a bit hard to discuss any special requests at the front desk. I had booked a Fantastic suite, but received a complimentary upgrade to a Marvelous Suite.
The room was outstanding - too bad I was not in town for a party - this would have been perfect. Very cool decorations, great views from a high floor. The suite has a very high-tech feel including a bedside tablet computer for controlling the lights, A/C separately for both rooms and even the Do-not-disturb sign. Wireless internet access is available throughout the hotel public areas and room.
Some reviewers have expressed concern for lack of privacy due to open design of the bathroom and toilet. This room has an additional spacious toilet with a real door right next to the entrance.
I did not eat dinner/lunch at the hotel but the breakfast buffet is super! It features western and Asian dishes, classics and some creative variations. I highly recommend.
The local area around the hotel seems very quiet at night and Saturday, apparently it is financial district. The location is somewhat detached from major tourist attractions or partying but well connected by BTS around the corner or a short cab ride. Taxi to / from the airport is very convenient and cheap.
