  1. This is a slightly more detailed review of the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit from my September 2018 trip report here: http://www.bangkok-addicts.com/forum/topic/8882-september-2018-trip-report-just-agencies-and-freelancers-this-trip/ Hotel overall: - Definitely would stay again. If the rates weren't so high, the Sheraton Grande would be my first choice in Bangkok. - Girl friendly without issue. - Room photos on Trip Advisor, Agoda and Booking are all accurate. - Luxury service and it shows. The hardware I can't say is luxury, but the service here was fantastic. Location: - Really convenient. Less than a 5 minute walk door to door to Asok BTS and Sukhumvit MRT. - Next door to the Terminal 21 shopping mall. Sometimes I'd get takeout and brought it back to my room. - In the immediately area at street level is a 7-Eleven and next door is Times Square with a Boots, Subway and Amazon Cafe. - Across the street is a Tops Supermarket and small food court, McDonald's, Robinsons and a tourist favourite massage place which tends to have an hour wait. - 10-15 minute walk to Soi Cowboy, Nana Plaza, Sukhumvit soi 7, the clubs on Sukhumvit soi 11 and Sukhumvit soi 22 - Downside is that trying to find breakfast that wasn't McDonald's was a good 10-15 minute walk away. - A lot of ladyboys on this side of Sukhumvit Rd if you're into that. They weren't nearly as agressive as the ladyboys on the north side of Sukhumvit. Room: - Standard international hotel chain western style room. - Large, spacious and bright. Rooms have been undergoing renovations throughout 2018 though when looking at old and current photos I don't see much difference. - The bathroom is larger than my bedroom at home. - Shower is only large enough for one person to fit. - There's a separate bathtub as well. - Rooms face either north or south. My room faced north towards the Westin Grande Sukhumvit and Terminal 21. Rooms facing south have a beautiful view towards Benchakiti Park. Service: - A bit too girl friendly for my personal preference. Instead of guest services calling my room, the staff would escort the girl to my room. Though it depended on the staff working at guest services because sometimes I'd receive the call and then go downstairs to meet the girl myself. - On day three, housekeeping noticed all the girls I was bringing to my room (and I guess all the used condoms in the rubbish bin) and began setting out a second pair of slippers beside the bed and extra water bottles. - I checked out at 4:30 AM to make an 8 AM flight. The staff were good at checking out the taxi and driver before letting me go. The first taxi was hesitant about going to Suvarnabhumi Airport and the Sheraton didn't want me to take this one. But no other taxi was coming so I took the chance. Staff wrote down the details of the taxi on a Sheraton business card in case I got into trouble and could call them. Amenities: - The gym is well equiped. Don't think I ever saw more than 8-10 people there at any time. - There's a dry sauna and hot tub/whirlpool in the changerooms. Don't know why anyone would want to use these indoors in Bangkok when it's already 33* celcius outside. - Gorgeous unheated pool area. Lots of Instagram photos. Also really crowded. A lot of chairs in the pool area but pretty much every one is occupied from 10 AM to midnight. - Restaurant with a small menu at the pool which was pretty good. Typical western choices like burger, pasta, ice cream. Restaurants: - I saw the lunch buffets but didn't try it. It looked pretty good but was expensive, even with my 50% off discount. The dinner buffet looked even better. Additional thoughts: - I know tipping isn't required in Bangkok or Thailand but I do it at hotels anyways. I've found that tipping housekeeping daily does get me some extra amenities (without me just going to the housekeeping trolly and asking for them myself). I think for most people this doesn't matter and I agree with that as well.
  2. This is a slightly more detailed review of the Westin Grande Sukhumvit from my September 2018 trip report here: http://www.bangkok-addicts.com/forum/topic/8882-september-2018-trip-report-just-agencies-and-freelancers-this-trip/ Hotel overall: - Definitely would stay again. - Girl friendly without issue. - Room photos on Trip Advisor, Agoda and Booking are all accurate. - A mid range hotel though you could find other mid range hotels with lower rates if you don't need the larger room and hotel amenities. Location: - Really convenient. Less than a 5 minute walk door to door to Asok BTS and Sukhumvit MRT. - Next door to the Terminal 21 shopping mall. Sometimes I'd get takeout and brought it back to my room. - At street level is a Tops Supermarket and small food court, McDonald's, Robinsons and a tourist favourite massage place which tends to have an hour wait. - 10-15 minute walk to Soi Cowboy, Nana Plaza, Sukhumvit soi 7, the clubs on Sukhumvit soi 11 and Sukhumvit soi 22 - Downside is that trying to find breakfast that wasn't McDonald's was a good 10-15 minute walk away. Room: - Standard international hotel chain western style room. - Large, spacious and bright. - Shower is only large enough for one person to fit. - There's a separate bathtub as well. - Rooms face either east or west. My room faced east towards the Terminal 21 complex and the hotel and apartment there. Not great if you like having the blinds open. Service: - Guest services called my room when girls arrived to confirm if I was expecting a guest, and called my room again after the girl left to see if I was okay. At first I didn't like how I lost my anonymity, but later thought my safety was worth it. - The lobby is on the 7th (or 8th?) floor by elevator, so from street level you're greeted by staff as well. Amenities: - Good variety of equipment, but only 1-2 of each. - The gym is well equiped but feels crowded if there are 12 or more people. The gym gets a lot of guests in the morning. - Salt water pool which seemed unheated. Large enough for both laps and casual playing. - Not enough chairs on the pool deck. I think only 10-12. None of the chairs offered any shade. Restaurants: - I saw the breakfast and lunch buffets but didn't try them. When in Thailand I try to have as much fresh seafood as I can. The Westin lunch buffet didn't have much seafood so I passed. Huge dessert selection though. - The lobby level cafe/bar has an outdoor bar-style seating area which gives you a nice view of Asok BTS. The barstools aren't all that comfortable but it's an enjoyable view of people coming and going from the BTS.
  3. Looking at both of these options for a family of 3 - wife, daughter and myself. 4 days when we arrive and we come back to Bangkok later. The marriott I am talking about is the one with the roof top bar. This is quite an attraction to me but the wife would not be interested as she likes to stay in. Daughter would come up with me if allowed. The pool however which is another factor is quite small at the Marriott. Hilton is also same location and is very new. Rooftop swimming pool which is bigger than Marriott and this comes in over 4 days at £50.00 cheaper. Anyone recommend either?
