This thread refers to the various Marriott brands within a specific geographic area. Marriott Bonvoy hotels in XX usually have posts asking which property is better, etc. Trip reports are usually better suited in the property specific threads.

Can someone who knows list the names of the hotels here in this long thread? Here are the names, addresses, email contact, commonly used abbreviations and some basic info about each hotel. (Location information, CL and breakfast information, UG experiences reported within the thread, typical room layout and frequently mentioned basic advice for different properties.) Keep in mind most posts indicate these are all great hotels. Hope this helps. CJK
  • JW Marriott Hotel Bangkok (JW) 4 Sukhumvit Road, Soi 2, Bangkok 10110, Thailand between the Phloen Chit and Nana BTS Stations. There is a pretty large CL. Elites mostly report having complimentary breakfast offered only at the CL and not in a restaurant. Some are bothered by the hotel's proximity to the Nana district and think the hotel may get some associated business while others (myself) have not really noticed this unless looking hard to see it. The hotel was recently renovated and there are a few posts showing pictures. UGs are usually to the club level regular room where the bathrooms are interior (no outside glass wall) and feature rather small showers but great soaking tubs. Unlike the other hotels listed here, the toilets are not in enclosures.
  • Renaissance Bangkok Ratchaprasong Hotel (Ren) 518/8 Ploenchit Road Khwaeng Lumphini, Khet Pathum Wan, Bangkok almost attached to the Chit Lom BTS Station and the SkyWalk. One can reach the platform without having to walk on public sidewalks and by using escalators/elevators in the building next door, so most feel this is the property with the fastest and easiest access to BTS. The CL is smaller than the JW's and sometimes gets full. Some elites report having a choice of the complimentary breakfast in the restaurant (which is quite good and huge) while others report having that request denied. Latest reports indicate the restaurant breakfast is offered as of April 2018. The hotel does not have many suites so UGs are usually to corner rooms which often have seating and/or dressing areas as well as larger bathrooms with full glass walls. IMO this is the best/most convenient hotel for a first timer looking to do typical touristy things in Bangkok.
  • Courtyard by Marriott Bangkok (CY) 155/1 Soi Mahadlekluang 1 Ratchadamri Road Bangkok is about a five minute walk to either the Ratchadamri or Chit Lom BTS Stations. The hotel operates tuk-tuks to/from the BTS Station. The hotel has a CL and consistently offers elites a choice of breakfast there or in the restaurant. The CL is on the top floor of the hotel and has outdoor seating. Having stayed at the hotel several times as a P, PP and LTP I have never been given an UG, so if there are others who can chime in on that please do. The regular room has a small interior only bathroom with a window overlooking the room and no tub, only a walk-in shower. IMO the price can makes this a great choice, as it is convenient to many places a visitor will go. Sometimes it can be half the price of other Marriott options and they often run double points promotions. (Call the hotel to ask, it cannot hurt.)
  • Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park (Sukhumvit Soi 22) 199 ถนน สุขุมวิท ซอย 22 Khwaeng Khlong Tan, Khet Khlong Toei, กรุงเทพมหานคร 10110, Thailand is about an eight minute walk to the Emporium Mall and Phrom Phong BTS Station either down the Soi sidewalk or through Queen's Park. The hotel operates a regular shuttle to the BTS Station although some have reported trouble catching it back to the hotel. The CL is large, with an outdoor deck, and most people report not being given a choice for the complimentary breakfast in the restaurant. Most Plats report getting UG to a suite, with the M Suite seeming to be most common. It has a living room, bedroom and single large interior bathroom with separate walk-in showers and tubs. This is the largest hotel in Bangkok.
  • Bangkok Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit (Sukhumvit Soi 57) 2 ถนน สุขุมวิท 57 Phra Khanong, Khlong Toei, กรุงเทพมหานคร 10110, Thailand ([email protected]) is a two minute walk to the Thong Lo BTS Station. Getting to the station involves crossing Thong Lo intersection which can be daunting. The hotel is about a ten minute BTS ride to the central malls, the Ren, etc. The area is a little quieter and more "Thai" than the more touristy/business area where the JW, Ren and CY are located. Some people report being able to have complimentary breakfast in the restaurant while others report lounge only. The CL is about the same size as the Ren's and can get crowded in the early evening. The hotel is on the higher floors of a 40+ story building and the CL is located on one of the top floors, offering stunning views of Bangkok. There is a rooftop bar on the top of the building with great views, too. Elites are often given a coupon for a free drink on the roof. Plats report mostly getting UGs to a two room suite with an extra half bath. The main bath includes an enclosed toilet, a single large walk-in shower and a large soaking tub that can easily seat two. (While the tub is large, the JW, Marquis and Ren tubs are more comfortable for a single person looking to lean back and relax.) IMO this is the quietest of the hotels listed here.
  • Bangkok Marriott Hotel The Surawongse 262 Thanon Surawong, Khwaeng Si Phraya, Khet Bang Rak, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10500, Thailand is the newest hotel. As of April 2018 there are not many posts from users who have stayed, nor is there an abbreviation being commonly used on this forum. The hotel is not attached/close to a BTS or MRT station but is near the Silom business area, the Patpong Night Market and some more popular adult entertainment establishments.

In your place I would stay at the SGS. You can have a more secluded breakfast at Rossini, enjoy the tropical paradise at the pool. Stay there for cocktails or enjoy the Living Room. You can relax listening to Jazz in the evenings. You really can have a great, relaxing resort vacation right in the hotel. There is plenty outside of the hotel as well.

When will you be in BKK? Many of us are in and out of the city and always nice to meet more FTers.

Often you can find who is in town at 2015-Onward: Thailand Meet-Up Thread
Thanks. I am in BKK this weekend.

You're also closer to Lumpini Park which IMO is better for running than Lake Ratchada. That said, the convenience of the SGS location is pretty hard to beat.

Wrapping up a 4 night stay at the MMQP. I have to say, I found the hotel quite pleasant, though not an absolute favorite in any category, The club lounge is where it really shines, with very generous offerings and a stellar staff. The food offerings are alright, but not stellar. I tried both lounge and Goji breakfast once each, and both were decent. There are quite a few better breakfasts in Bangkok in the Marriott portfolio though. The St. Regis was excellent, but I think nothing will ever quite beat the Le Meridien in that regard. No fresh coconuts to be had even when especially requested… ABar is quite decent for an on-property rooftop bar, and I'm glad it exists, though it won't appear in any top lists like the Soi57's Octave. The location is quite convenient on Sukhumvit Soi 22 — <10min to BTS if you can cut through the park behind the hotel (open until 9pm), and is in a slightly more upstanding part of Sukhumvit than the Soi11-ish properties (Westin, SGS, Aloft, 4P). Building is rather old, but the hotel dates to a 3 year old renovation, so the rooms are decently furnished. For an almost 1400 room hotel, it's not nearly as obnoxious as you'd imagine.

Overall, I think it's a well executed mid-tier hotel and I'd happily stay here again — though I am longing for anything truly amazing like Marriott on Soi 57's Octave or like Le Meridien's platinum happy hour and breakfast, or the St. Regis' pool and free laundry and butler service.

Did you try the Exclusive Evening Cocktail at MMQP's dining venues?

Report is expected at the MMQP thread!

Fingers crossed made the right decision
I have stayed at Athenee few days back and it is way above Marquis, LM or Westin. Everything is better, from Suites to lounge food and alcohol choices. No comparison. Athenee shines.

The problem in Bangkok is basically being spoiled for choice with Marriott after the merger, the only thing missing is a high-end Ritz-Carlton in my opinion (the EDITION would have partly remedied this).

If you compare Marriott to, say, IHG in Bangkok it's almost comical - IHG has the IC and the Hotel Indigo, then well below this the CP Lumpini Park. In the same segment above CP Lumpini Park where IHG has two hotels, Marriott has the St. Regis, SGS, Athenee, W, JWM, Marriott Surawongse, MMQP, Marriott Sukhumvit, Le Meridien and Le Meridien Suvarnabhumi!

With the SR, I don't know that an RC would add anything, particularly given the lack of elite benes at those properties.

Marriott/SPG also blows away Hilton. Hyatt arguably second best now, with the new HR Sukhumvit.

There are aspects of the St. Regis hard product I think have dated slightly and I'm not a huge fan of the styling, so personally I would appreciate a newer luxury property within Marriott and RC seems the most likely contender. Booking through a STARS agent you're really not missing much by choosing an RC anyway, the St. Regis Bangkok elite benefits are pretty light in my opinion too. So many new luxury hotels have come online recently/are coming online shortly in Bangkok that I'm fairly sure the extra capacity is not needed though (Park Hyatt, Waldorf Astoria, Rosewood, Four Seasons, Orient Express, etc.).

I was just pre-upgraded to Caroline Astor Suite, which is one of the nicer hotel rooms I've ever seen YMMV

I hear you though on keeping up with the new build luxury properties. Though from what I hear, both WA and PH are overall less appealing than the best Marriott options.

Wow never been preupgraded to a Caroline Astor before. Although my stays are always on points.

Done over 50 nights over the past 3 years

Swapped to Athenee at the very last minute. Glad I did. Received prestige corner room

Currently at the lounge. Very wide spread of food and alcohol. Better than Marriott osaka imo

I was pre-upgraded to a Caroline Astor Suite before (from a lower category suite booking rather than a regular room, however), but I was subsequently downgraded again before check in.

Don't get me wrong, there are things about the St. Regis that are truly excellent.

I'd say the only weak aspect is the 1 drink per night coupon. Everything else is great imo.

If you want the full list from me: there are breakfasts I like better elsewhere (Rossini's, the huge Athenee buffet), I've yet to receive a particularly impressive upgrade at the St. Regis but acknowledge others have it seems, service (and drinks quality to an extent) in the bar isn't up to the standard it should be, furniture is not my style and is also a bit chipped/worn in places now I find, I also question housekeeping slightly as I wasn't hugely impressed to find lipstick marks on the reverse of the pillowcase last time I stayed there.
