Just booked the Thailand Bangkok 3for2 Nights Promo here Which offer gives restaurant breakfast too in the rate for upto 2ppn.
(though 2x nights were at full flex, but 2 Flex nights cheaper than 3nights corporate rates, 1night non-refundable deposit at booking time, book by 14th April).

o HI Sukhumvit location happens to suit me this visit, though spent last night (Monday) at Royal Orchid Sheraton (on the River) which has a greatb/f and evening Lounge offering. Will weekend at the Conrad as I prefer that lounge evening offering to IC Bangkok's.

o Alas book Prem King , you'll get 1ct upgrade to Exec Room minus Lounge Access as a Spire, they'll tell you Exec Room is nicer than Premier etc (or sometimes no upgrade).
o If you get fake upgrade Prem to Exec w/o lounge access, be pleasantly dissapointed and push back politely... As... No guarantees, but it is not unknown here to be offered a 1-off (this visit only) taster of foc lounge access

o Probably worth booking lounge access here if you will use in evening for drinks, plus the Exec Room upgrade is then to a suite for Spires.
o Lounge Access (all day coffee/tea/sodas)
a)breakfast (no right to restaurant b/f)
b)afternoon tea 1430 (not been)
c)evening drinks+nibles 1800-1945
c)Drinks = Spirits, local beer, heineken
c)Food (Tue 9Apr) = Cheese/Pastrami/Duck , Chicken Satay, Hot Vegetarian Penne, plus other bits n pieces. For a Holiday Inn it is actually a good offering.
