Overall the experience in this hotel is very Good, only except a bit far away from Down town or central. In Bangkok, traffic jam is a problem, and it took quite a long time to central by Grab or Taxi.

I was there for the 1st time in 2000 when it was still Mariott hotel. I returned there many times during this last 23 years and I cannot imagine to stay in any other hotel in BKK. I just like everything there, room, garden, breakfast, pool, services. Last november they upgraded us from "normal" room to a "view on the river room." Was just amazing.

Great place and service and food! Spent 4 nights here. The hotel is located at the riverside with great Spa. I had THE best massage here ever!. Breakfast was amazing and lots of variety. The Juice bar was fantastic. Although, a party noise kept me awake on 1st night, the rest of my stay was quiet.
