AIRPORT TRANSPORTATION

The following thread and its wiki provide all the information one needs to know about taking a taxi from Suvarnabhumi Airport: Catching a Taxi at BKK and general Thailand taxi discussion [SEE WIKI FIRST] The wiki discusses the breakdown of taxi fares from the airport to central Bangkok where Grand Hyatt Erawan is located, and addresses the possibility of being slightly overcharged by a taxi driver.

Alternatively, Grand Hyatt Erawan offers airport transfers in its own fleet of silver Mercedes-Benz S-Class sedans. The price of this service is THB 3,000 (net) per one way transfer to or from Suvarnabhumi Airport. Guests using this service will be greeted by a representative at the airport, assisted with their luggage, and escorted to the waiting car.

For an additional charge, the hotel can also arrange "Fast Track" (VIP lane) immigration clearance, as well as the option of being met at one's arrival gate by a buggy and escorted through Fast Track immigration. This service is available for THB 1,600+ 7% vat per person, or THB 2,400+ 7% vat per person to include Golf Cart and porter services.

AOT (and perhaps other companies) also provide transfers from and to the airport. Various vehicle types are available at different price points: Camry (THB 1,200 one way), Mercedes E-Class (THB 2,400 one way).

I always use http://www.limousine.in.th for my car needs in BKK incl airport transfers. 1050 THB from BKK to the city, 900 THB city to BKK (incl tolls).

UBER no longer operates in Thailand. Instead, use GRAB. Similar to UBER, prices will vary. On my trip, I was able to get a GRAB for 364 THB from BKK.

Taxi should run between 400-500 THB. If going from the hotel to BKK, the hotel will quote 500 THB. I had to wait for a few taxi's as the first two didn't want to do unless I paid 750 THB.

I'm happy with this hotel. On a Prive rate. It turns out that globalists get restaurant breakfast if they want, anyway.

I applied a TSU. They further upgraded me one suite level to the King Executive Suite (not sure if due to globalist, or Prive, or both). The fresh bowl of fruit in the room, replenished every day, is a VERY nice touch. I assume that this is standard for the suite since it's in the picture of the room description.

Today when I got back from being out all afternoon, I found handwritten note from the person who checked me in yesterday, and a plate of mango and sticky rice from room service waiting for me.

The bar in the lounge is well stocked for happy hr. Lots of selection. Mid-end stuff, but nice.

Restaurant breakfast buffet was good. I made the mistake of eating too much and not getting to enjoy much local food during the day. I'll eat lighter tomorrow morning

The bed is comfortable, the suite is big, the service is good, and the food is good. I'm happy
