So I am having a bit of difficulty choosing a hotel in Bangkok. I will be spending half a week in Bangkok and two and half weeks between Phuket, Chiang Mai and Udon Thani. For the Bangkok portion of the trip I am torn between the JW, Renaissance and the Bangkok Marriott. I like all the different bars and the style of the JW. The suites look really nice in the Renaissance and I am leaning towards staying there. I am also a sucker for rooftop pools and the Bangkok Marriott's looks nice.
Does anyone have anyone experiences or insight they would like to share about the aforementioned properties? I think some advice from fellow world travelers would be what I need to make the correct choice. If you have any Thailand tips, tricks and "must see" that would also be appreciated.
I've stayed at all three and have decided my future stays will be at whichever is the cheapest, or the lowest points redemption. Each has its own strengths, and each is an excellent hotel. You won't go wrong with any choice, as it's a matter of which great choice you wind up with. For a stay in a couple weeks, the Ren and FS were the same price. I have chosen the FS.
Here are the advantages of each:
Hope that helps. Let me know if you have specific questions. I will be in Bangkok within the month, so if there is anything else you want me to check at the FS, let me know.
Perfect response. Thank you for all the information. I especially appreciate the info about the street level. That is always a concern and now I can plan for that. Based on your information I have narrowed it down to the Ren or FS. I like the pictures of the rooms in Ren but it sounds like FS has more of what I love in hotels. Thanks for the assist!
