Depends on you meaning of close...

The properties are about three miles from one another. They are three BTS stops from one another. So if you want to get to the area where the Ren is located, it's easy and doable, but if you mean are you walking in the same neighborhood when you walk out each hotel, you're not.

The Ren is on the SkyWalk, from which you can access the big malls and some other tourist destinations without having to walk on the street. You can access the SkyMall through the office building next door to the Ren, without having to go outside for more than a few steps and without having to walk up stairs. That would not be the case with the new Marriott. Nor would you have Erawan Shrine, which is always interesting to duck into on the way in/out of the Ren or CY.

The new Marriott is by the Emporium. You can easily see the big E when you ride by on the BTS.
