I recently completed a second two-week stay at the Plaza Athenee in Bangkok. The staff and service in this hotel are simply world-class. While there are occasional language miscues, there is never a doubt that the entire team at the hotel understands quality and caring customer service. And the land of smiles is always on full display with the entire...

I recently completed a two night a stay at the Plaza Athenee and stayed in a Deluxe Suite with scenic views of the American Embassy and its surroundings. The suite, while well maintained and kept in immaculate condition, feels somewhat dated to the late 1990's. However, the hotel is supposed to start a 2 year renovation process this summer, so...

Well located, friendly staff and decent size rooms. One of the best Breakfast Buffets. But the "extras" are missing. For example the pool is not very luxurious and spa and salon services are disappointing. Probably better for business travelers than leisure travellers

We stayed here 5 nights over the New Year. I would love to give it an excellent rating but for me the internal design let it down badly. It was mostly in those dreary American hotel browns and beiges with no wow factor, a corporate business hotel even though it was full of tourists. The outside appearance was entirely different...
