We recently stayed here on a quick 2 day visit in Bangkok before heading to the islands. Hotel was nice, met expectations. Having just come from W Hong Kong, we were a little bit spoiled, but was nice to see traces of W elements as this hotel is intended to be budget-friendly version of W chain. You can tell hotel is brand new--lobby is bright, fully staffed, with hip decor and music.
Room was nice--bed was a bit on the firm side, but still comfortable. TV, digital component hook ups, light setting was convenient. Sofa by the window was a plus and still left plenty of walking space in the room. Air condition was strong, which was refreshing after walking through hot Bangkok streets. Room had modern/hip decor to add to ambience.
Pool on 10 floor was a nice surprise--not too crowded and had a nice view overlooking the city. We ate light meal which relaxing up here one night...and food was good.
Location is ok...we didn't realize how far out the Sukhumvit area was from main attractions and canals in Bangkok and we regrettably took taxis around as Bangkok traffic is terrible (much worse than NYC traffic!). Metro stations were a short 10 minute walk from hotel, although we didn't try...but next time, we will take advantage. There are also plenty of restaurants and shops in area (althought a bit touristy...but hey, we are tourists).
We used SPG cash and points, so not sure of hotel price...but seems to be worth it based on other reviews of hotel. Would consider staying here again if in Bangkok.
NOTE: Only mishap we experienced was that evacuation alarm went off one day and briefly shut off. Several guests on our floor were confused as to whether we should evacuate (no one picked up guest service phone line)--we chose to leave just to be safe...so we walked down 19 hot flights of stairs, only to reach fire exit that was locked shut. We ventured further into the basement as this was the only place to go to find an evacuation route and were met by confused employees as we entered an area not intended for hotel guests. They led us to the outdoor area and we were told by lobby staff that alarm was an error. Not a huge deal, but an inconvenient experience that could have been handled better.
