    Which 5 star to recommend to stay in Bangkok

    Hi all ,

    I am coming for a biz meeting and usually stay in Sofitel Central Lad Phrao but my boss decided that we should book another hotel for a change.

    My meetings are along viphavadee-rangsit road

    Any interest or nice hotel to recommend to stay for one night

    thanks

    In your position I would check the The Rama Gardens Hotel Bangkok, it is the only resort style hotel within Bangkok's city limits. The hotel is set in 21 acres of lush tropical gardens. Known as "The Resort in the City" in their website.

    Bangkok Hotel : Rama Gardens Hotel Bangkok Resort in the city

    Cheers

    I'm not certain the Sofitel you mentioned is 5 star, and there aren't any other 5 stars in the area you mentioned.

    Not sure of your budget, but you might consider a new hotel that recently opened - the Courtyard Marriott. The prices are much better than the Sukhumvit Marriott and it is a sparkling new hotel. It's a little hard to find - down the soi by the four seasons.

    I had some business guests stay there a couple months ago, and looked around. It's probably the most reasonably priced hotel in that category.

    But, it's not on the corridor you mentioned.

    That's correct.

    The Best, if that is more important than location-
    The Sukothai
    The Oriental

    Both of these are wonderful hotels. My choices exactly too. The Oriental gets my nod because of the Bamboo bar with the best jazz combos and vocalists in Thailand.

    For both of these, bring your Platinum American Express, and preferably your black card. Not cheap, and probably not in the OP's approved budget judging on the previous hotel.

    If the reason your boss wants to change hotels is to move up to a five star then this one may not be the answer as it is really a four star but much newer than the Sofitel. Location is best for your meeting places.

    Thailand Hotel - Miracle Grand Convention Hotel

    As others have mentioned, there are no Five Star hotels in the area of your meetings. There is a new boutique hotel on Sukhumvit (Soi 15?) I've heard is very good. Chintee may know the name?
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    ^Yeah, Norton, there are a few new boutique hotels around Sukhumvit. I haven't been any though. I'll bet Blake7, Marmite or Noodles might know the names.

    Found it. Grand Millennium Sukhumvit. Very new and offering promotional prices. Nice thing about this one is it is just across the street from the underground which you can take out near where your meetings will be.

    Well, the Oriental has a free riverboat shuttle to the skytrain at Thaksin Bridge.
    But I think most punters do limo or taxi.

    Here's one of the boutiques. Ultra modern. Situated very near the underground.

    ^Yes, Dream was the one I was trying to remember. And Millenium was recently completed, I didn't know they were open. I think maybe Emperor Tud or somebody discussed these somewhere on this forum.

    The Sukothai is definitely one of the best,

    for something central but great, I would recommend the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit,

    Slightly off topic, just how much is it in there?

    I've wanted to visit for a while but they seem to have a problem with me taking my own cans of beer in.

    It's a good 10 minute walk to the underground or skytrain. Looks like they've done a reasonable job even though it's just a re-vamp of an old hotel & apartment block.

    Think they have a courtesy tuk tuk service to Sukhumvit.

    BTW, wonder where the OP went off to?

    I stayed at Rama Gardens Resort for 4 days,just after the tsunami,at Phuket Airs expense. They cancelled my flight,an hour before I was due to fly,and sent me to the Rama.This was a saturday night.....the flight eventually left the following wednesday.I was`nt on it,I went back to phuket for another month. Rama resort was very nice with great facilities,lovely gardens,great food etc.....but I would`nt pay to stay there myself. I`d rather take a cheaper place,save the dosh for more important things......

    Rack rates, outrageous. But check around, you can get pretty good deals in low season. I reckon around US$200. If you decide not to stay there, still highly recommend the seafood buffet at Lord Jims overlooking the river. Scrumptious, and not unreasonably priced.

    And yes, I'd say in Sukhumvit area the Sheraton Grande rules the roost. Great rooms, walk in robes. VG hotel.

    I was asking just about the Jazz bar actually. Price of beers, whiskeys?

    I'm sure I could raise enough to buy a Heineken and make it last a few hours.
