We stayed here on SPG points after we got separated from our tour. Last-minute booking was difficult, since many of the nights we wanted to stay were sold out.
The rooms were nice (although not quite as nice as the Four Points in Bangkok), and the service was pretty good. The beds were over-the-top soft and comfortable, something hard to find in Thailand. The Le Meridien was a fantastic value when paid with points, especially after upgrading to a club room with breakfast and lounge access. The breakfast buffet in the restaurant (included with club access) was top-notch and had a lot of Thai food in addition to the typical stuff you'd find at a Le Meridien.
The Le Meridien had a perfect location right across the street from the night bazaar and within walking distance to the old city. It was tall, so you could see it from just about anywhere around.
My only real complaint is that this hotel didn't really "fit" with the rest of the city -- it was essentially an island of well-to-do tourists in a tower overlooking a fairly poor section of town. If you stay here, you won't necessarily feel the vibe of the night market or experience interactions with the locals. Instead, you'll live in a sanitized bubble towering above the city.
