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.

They're trying to pull that garbage on me right now.

I got the CA suite last time I was here (but I was booked into St. Regis Suite, so it was only one category upgrade).

Sadly, it's only for elites with families, who aren't otherwise allowed to use the lounge.

Can you say compare it to the newly renovated JW? We want to use our 7 night cert stay in Athenee, but we are torn between the JW location which might seem closer to the BTS. Either way, we want to be in the Central World/Chit Lom area.

Haven't been to JW. At least from what I see on photos, it is not the best JW.

Athenee is perhaps slightly closer both to Central World and to BTS.
JW is closer to Nana (if that may be of interest), but Athenee is 40 THB taxi ride from Nana (and cheaper with Grab), so I don't think it's decisive factor. If Nana in a walking distance isn't a concern, I would say Athenee location is significantly better.

Ok Thanks! Athenee it is for us then!

We stayed at the Conrad last year, and would walk past into the Athenee lobby from the BTS, and I have to say we are rather excited to stay at this property..

Beware that the renovation at the JW isn't complete so you may not get one of the newer rooms unless you book specifically into one. Over the past few months I've been upgraded to both a renovated suite which was really nice and a non renovated suite which was huge but older style.

Sorry to hear this - I wasn't aware of the rule as my family enjoyed happy hour at the lounge nightly without issues. My kids, however, are well behaved and I allow them to use their electronics (tablets, Nintendo Switch, etc.) while in the lounge.

The renovations at the JW are not complete so you might end up in a less than desirable room. Stayed at the JW recently and only really enjoyed the dinner at the lounge and the breakfast in the restaurant. The rest was subpar compared to BKK's current premier hotels. Maybe that'll change after the renovation is complete.

Same distance (400 meters) between either the JWM or the Plaza Athenee to Ploenchit BTS Station. Walking to Central World/Chitlom area, however, the PA is closer. From the JWM to Ploenchit BTS, you can also use the 2nd floor skywalk to Ploenchit Center mall closer to the BTS which would make the walk more tolerable. Nana BTS is 500 m. from the JWM but in the opposite directions in case you want to go to Asok, Phrom Phong, and beyond.

Thanks for your input guys!

Kalboz - do you have a blog or something? Would love to read your travels in Thailand, especially Bangkok. It's one country that we love travelling so much that we keep going back for more every year! These building connectors does WONDERS in the mid-day bangkok heat, just like the massive skywalk that connects you from Chit Lom all the way to the Pranthunam Platinum mall. I'm guess the PA doesn't have that, as I don't really recall that the last time we walked from the BTS to the Conrad..

You can exit from BTS Ploenchit directly into the building that has Okura Prestige, pass through it, exit to the Wittayu – and Athenee is just 100 meters or so ahead.

From the corner of the Wittayu there is a walking passage to Central Embassy and Central Chitlom.

Thank you. No, not a blog but heavy input in the Thailand branch when InsideFlyer (Flyertalk) was reasonably navigable! https://insideflyer.com/forums/thailand/

Phloen Chit is pretty much connected all the way to Pratunam. From the PA, once you get to the skywalk turn left and head to Central Embassy - CE is connected to Central Chitlom - CC is connected to Chitlom BTS station (which you have to pay 15 THB to go to the other side) - From there you take the Ratchaprasong Skywalk to GaySorn Mall - Go down to the first floor to the end double doors to GaySorn Village - take the escalator to the 2nd floor where the Ratchaprasong Skywalk resumes and will take you all the way to Pratunam.

Hilton properties in Bangkok are solid especially the Conrad which does have a comped shuttle bus to Phloen Chit BTS Station every 30 minutes.


Ratchaprasong Skywalk at Ratchadamri (now completed) extends from GaySorn Village to Pratunam.


Conrad Shuttle to Ploenchit BTS Station

Indeed - here is the passage from Central Embassy to Central Chitlom

I remember that passage-way and comedy wallpaper well.
