A clearly five star hotel in which the staff were so exceptionally pleasant. Most working areas of the Hotel for the guests, are unusually on the 7th floor which include the reception, the pool and a dining area, all of which are of a good size.

We were booked with an Executive Room on the 23rd floor, just one floor down from the Exec Lounge where we spent most early evenings in a relaxed atmosphere. The only downside of the hotel was that we had just travelled up to Bangkok on the Orient Express where we had stayed at the Fairmont Singapore. In comparison between these two hotels, the Westins Lounge was by far smaller and the range of food was far inferior, to that of Fairmont or indeed Shangri La in KL This probably was really the only criticism during the whole length of our stay of this hotel.

Unique Quality: Having experienced an already very disgruntled taxi driver from the railway station to the Westin on Sukhumvit, I finally made his day by informing him had only US Dollars on me so told him I would have to change these to Baht in the Reception. Fortunately this being on the seventh floor of this hotel, I was shown the way by a young man of the downstairs concierge who said he would pay the driver once I have local currency, which he did without me having to go back downstairs, and kindly brought me not only the change, but also the drivers receipt which was impressive and exceptionally helpful. Had I had to settle up with the driver myself, numerous additional charges would no doubt have suddenly appeared for Tolls and baggage.
However, being so exhausted I completely forgot to thank this young man properly, and although I looked out for him each day, never did find him to show my appreciation for his help.

I also would like to commend the concierge desk on the 7th floor as I was destined to have to travel to Air China office in town to sort out a very complex change of flights from Sri Lanka Air. He suggested that rather than me going across town why not let him deal with the problem which even I had difficulty in explaining for our flight to Beijing, yet he managed to get confirmations for us, both verbally and by way of email without difficulty - most impressive!

Asoke is centrally located right in the heart of Sukhumvit Rd with Soi Cowboy right around the corner. There are many resturants in this area as well, Chinese, Thai, American, almost anything you could want, to include some really good street food.
Hotels in the area include the Ambassador, an older hotel but not bad for the price and the tower wings are pretty decent. There are two Citadines on soi 16 and 23, a couple Imperial hotels that are better yet and then maybe over your budget is the Westin Grand. But you have a wide range of hotels to choose from. I'll leave you a site so you can search by area
Good luck

by written on February 22, 2008

Nice location, near the metro and lots of restaurants. The hotel itself is nice, but you could be at a 5-star chain anywhere in the world. Nothing memorable. The breakfast buffet was AWESOME. The room was nice and the bathroom was great. Internet access was like USD 30 a day! A rip off with the money you pay to stay there!
All in all, a nice hotel...much like any other Hyatt, Westin, ....

This great hotel is one of the best in Sukhumvit. Lounge on ground floor and reception on the 7th floor. Really large room with modern furniture and splendid bathroom with separate bath and shower. Large pool and great view from the fitness room. We sleep easely four in one room without extra charge ( 2 adults and 2 childrens) and they don't charge also 2 extra breakfast. Perfect location upstair Robinson dpt store and BTS (Bangkok Sky Train) is 1 minute walking.

Very nice, clean and modern hotel with friendly and efficient staff. Got this via Priceline for $75 but normal rate around $120. However rooms comparable to other 4star hotels like Royal President. I think you are only paying extra for all the extra facilities available at the hotel but if you are not going to be spending much time at the hotel anyway then probably better off booking a very nice 4-star hotel but thats just my opinion.

Modern Hotel with all the Creature Comforts

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 31, 2005

From the street level you will enter the lower lobby where a water theme predominates.
Up one level is the main lobby which was impressively done up in dark marble and the use of muted coloured lights to create a stunning visual impact (see pics-taken using a film camera and scanned so the quality is not great.).

The reception staff were very polished and professional and a few of them can speak different languages including Japanese.

It has a reasonably sized pool (see pics).

Unique Quality: Cool and elegant bedroom, with the Heavenly Bed (copyright) that all Westins are famous for. The bathroom was large and well appointed.

This property used to be under a different name and management but was refurbished and upgraded in 2003 and rebranded as the Westin Grande. The location was excellent, within walking distance of Asok skytrain station, and also within walking distance of Nana Plaza and its surrounds and street level shopping. Just across the soi is a 7-11 convenience store for your daily needs.

Update-Aug 2005:
We stayed at this hotel a few years ago just immediately after the rebranding and got a good rate. However, at that time, the fitness centre was not ready. I have recently checked it out and it is far more expensive now (over US$100 per room night), which is a bit out of my budget. It is only one stytrain stop away from the new and upmarket Emporium Mall (the Food court at the Emporium is quite remarkable and I've written up on it at my Restaurant Tips section).

Directions: very Near Asok Skytrain

This is a nice hotel, hard to pass up Westin's Heavenly bed, and the service is always good. But in Bangkok, I really like the ambiance of the Marriott Resort and Spa on the River. Plus it was priced a little better (better value too).

The Westin is a good location, Sukhumvit is "downtown" and shopping is close Emporium (HIGH end western retail) is walking distance and Siam/MBK are a short train ride away.

Unique Quality: Pool was ok. Showing a little age. While I was there the Spa was undergoing renovation and was relocated to a suite on a guest room floor. That was very confusing to me and I kept wondering if it was services "for men only." It was not the best massage I've had in Bangkok, especially at Westin prices..
In room internet access was nice (expensive though). The lobby is on the 7th story of the building..... hence private... and the doormen were impeccably helpful.
