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.

Address is the same, but Marriott Soi57 is distinct from the Executive Apartments property on marriott.com

Personally I would stay at the Marriott 57 but not Exec Apts

Rates there are down for the next few weeks, and at a number of other properties. I guess it’s related to the weather ( maybe the election plus aftermath). This past Saturday was as unpleasant in Bangkok as I’ve ever known it: pushing 40 ( 105?) and searingly bone dry. Bring on the wet!

We have stayed at both the hotel and the apartments (booked hotel rooms and upgraded to one, 2, and 3-bedroom apartments at different times) and both were great. Breakfast is allowed at the restaurant. Last stay was in April 2016 though, so things might be different now!

For those who have stayed at the Marriott Soi 57 hotel (not the executive apartments)—the room aircon is good and strong, right?

I'm set to check in to an executive room (not a suite) on Sunday. However, I will definitely cancel in favor of another hotel (thinking the new Hyatt Regency?) if the room A/C is known to be weak. April is no time to be playing games with climate control in Thailand!

Will be flying into Bangkok the evening of April 9 and plan to spend the 10th seeing the sights (our first time in Bangkok). We fly out early in the morning (1:00 am) on the 11th. We'll also need the property to hold our bags for us after check out on the 10th and are running around the city. What property provides the best launching point to see the city?

Also, I hold lowly Gold status.

It depends on what sites you want to see in one short day, but I'd guess the ROS is probably what you want. You can go up and down the river and see several of the big tourist temples, and a night market all without leaving the river.

If you are looking to maximize points, the CY is by far the best choice. It is one redemption level lower than the Aloft but a much nicer hotel. It is in a great location near both BTS lines and is quiet and clean. It is actually pretty near the SR geographically and a world away from Soi 11 figuratively. You can walk to the malls from the hotel on wide, relatively quiet sidewalks. The staff is great. It is very different from NA CYs: more akin to American FS hotels with a restaurant, CL and full-time busmen manning the front door.

If you pay enough points to go up one level on redemption, the Soi 57 Marriott is swank, in the cool Thong Lor area and a short block from the BTS station. The staff is awesome. It is my favorite of the Cat 4 properties in Bangkok.

Yes, the SR is very nice It is also Cat 5 but relatively inexpensive for cash, making it a non-economical hotel for points redemption.

JB Marriot next to Ploenchit is very good area. Certainly lots of activity in that area.

I have really only sampled the ex SPG fare so will only comment on those. Westin, SGS, 4P, Aloft and Athenee are all close to each other geographically and cater for Sukhumvit centric activities . Athenee, W, STR and LM are all close geographically and are all central to the big inner city shopping districts. LM has some interesting nightlife in the vicinity. ROS is good for the river but not good for getting to other areas. As a gold look for BRGs especially with club facilities would be advised. It is low season so they are often available.

JBord and geminidreams, I appreciate your recommendations. You bring up a good point re: BRGs. I usually do my price comparisons on Tripadvisor. Is there somewhere else I should be looking to find low/discounted rates?

Wow, I know there are a lot of counterfeit goods in Thailand....I just didn't realize they could counterfeit a JW Marriott hotel and get away with it.

Actually I like it there. Lots of food options in the area, walk around the night market, listen to live music. The main annoying issue is the ping pong show touts.

The biggest PITA about Patpong is not the touts/sleaze but rather the ludicrous market that now takes up every square inch of space. During the daytime is fine. I any case, the whole area can be avoided by going through the Soi with Thaniya Plaza ( the one with all the Japanese bars); unless of course you’re Japanese, in which case no doubt the touts there will harass you.
I really like Le Meridien but haven’t been back in a long while largely because I find the walk to the BTS a bit long.

Another quick question for this forum...we fly into BKK at 23:40 and fly out of DMK at 10:10 the next morning. Any recommendations on where to crash for the night. Primary concern would be ease of getting to the hotel late at night and getting to DMK the next morning.
