I was visiting Bangkok, Thailand for the very first time with my family. I stayed here for 8 days during the Christmas season. I was staying in the Deluxe room which overlooked the busy city. The hotel staff was friendly and room service was top-notch. The location is pretty convenient. It's not too close to the city center. Used the subway, sky trains and taxis to get around, all of which are close by to the hotel. The menu at the restaurant is extensive and captivating. The hotel has a well-stocked wine cellar and a vivacious bar. The staff at check in were very friendly, the room is dated, but very clean. Air con works great, lots of really hot water in the shower. The TV has lots of western channels. Breakfast the first day was terrible, due to the fact they must have had a convention and there were huge lines for every type of food, a huge letdown.
