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.

I will be at the Bangkok Thai-Japan Youth Center - 2 Mit Maitri Rd, Khwaeng Din Daeng, Khet Din Daeng, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10400, Thailand.

My normal runs while traveling are to see the sites. Since I don’t have an extra day to go touring, I was hoping to see as much as possible while I run.

I want a nice Marriott that includes a good breakfast I will arrive very late on the 25, be at the Youth Center from 11:45 am until 10:00 pm on the 26-28, and then fly home very early on the 29.

There appear to be many nice Marriott properties. None are next door to where I am going, so I was hoping for best scenic place to get the vibe of Bangkok.

Bangkok is a huge, spread out city, with horrible traffic. I've run cities around the world and would not even consider a running tour of Bangkok, it is completely impractical.

The traditional tourist sites . . . temples and palaces . . . are mostly along the Chao Praya river. You could stay at Royal Orchid Sheraton along the river, but that's a long ways from your work.

The most conveniently located properties for your work would the Ren or CY. St. Regis, Athenee, or JW would be next. That's a pretty wide range of choices.

By the looks of it on Google Maps you can walk (I would walk it, some wouldn't, if you run then you probably would) from the BTS (Sukumvit Line) to your work at the Youth Center which means any of those hotels on the Sukhumvit Line would be fine and give you an easy and quick journey to work. Just look at their location along Sukhumvit on Google Maps and choose one that suits your budget. You won't be disappointed with breakfast at any of the hotels for the price you pay.

Bangkok is not a suitable city for running on city streets. If you want to run, Lumpini Park would be the first choice. You can walk there from St. Regis or Athenee. Benjakkiti Park would be second; that's close to SGS and Westin Grand. Benjasiri Park behind the Marquis, is too small, no serious runner would consider it satisfactory.
Le Meridien is close to Lumpini Park and is quite nice.

Between the 3 Marriotts OP suggested, I'd pick the Surawongse.

You will definitely want one of the hotels near CentralWorld otherwise the traffic will be nightmarish to even get out of the more congested part of the city. St. Regis, Renaissance, Athenee are all reasonably located.

I wouldn't run outside in BKK to site see. With the heat, humidity, rain, pollution and the typical chaotic streets, it would not be pleasant. Running outside works for me in Phuket but not BKK

Looking at the map, you are going to either taxi from a hotel near Central World (Ren. St Regis) or grab a sky train to Victory Monument and grab a taxi from there. You could stay at the Royal Orchid Sheraton and run over to the Grand Palace area for sights. There is a guy that stays at the Westin and runs most days between Chitlom and On Nut. No interesting sites but will give you a feel for the rhythm of the city.

By no means can you trust the times Google Maps or Waze give you in Bangkok. Double or triple them.

Yes, Phuket, Hua Hin, Samui, Krabi. But not Bangkok (except in the parks . . . I particularly enjoy Lumpini).

Wow. That's dedication.

Bangkok is not a running city! I'd skip the run altogether in Bangkok - it's only 2 days afterall because of the pollution, the heat, and it gets dark fairly quickly (sun usually sets before 7 PM) making doubly unhealthy to breath as you will be competing for oxygen with the trees.

Exercising at parks is a good option however as many Thais do exactly that. Banjasiri Park next to the MMQP has a running track around the park and many exercise equipment and activaties.


Benjasiri Park - note the Marriott just above the jocks!

Another hotel to consider: The CY is very close to Lumpini Park which is a tourist spot on its own and has running paths. You will get a feel for the city and there are a few tourist spots very close, like the malls that were mentioned earlier and Erawan Shrine. The CY is a bargain, breakfast in the restaurant is quite good and free for Plats and higher; there is also a CL if you are eligible. Since you seem to need the room just for sleeping more than a fancy, elegant hotel it would seem an excellent choice. There are two BTS stations which are easy to get to and the hotel runs a shuttle if you don't want to walk.

Definitely worth checking the AQI in BKK before going out for a run. An N95 mask may be advisable.

But I’m curious what you mean by competing for oxygen with the trees.

A bit of OT from my school days ... which was in another lifetime!

It's more enduring to jog during daylight time than nighttime. Plants (including trees) breathe during the day using CO2 in photosynthesis which produces oxygen as a bi-product. The process reverses when there isn't enough light as plants intake oxygen and give off CO2.

Thinking again about how hot and polluted Bangkok is, dunno if it makes much difference!

Partial help here....

a) Between Marriott Marquis and JW marriott , which one has deluxe room better and the staff service better toward hotel guest with low rank loyalty. JW Marriott, assuming you get a renovated room.
b) Which hotel has local street food near by Definitely JW. Go to Sukhumvit Rd - less than one minute walk and turn left.
c) Does anyone know how much JW Marriott charge a fee for using executive lounge per person. No.
d) Will upgrade to executive room level ( with a fee guarantee) an executive lounge access. I would imagine so.
e) I read on line that JW Marriott currently go thru renovation for all rooms, have it done yet . If I choose to stay at JW Marriott, which floor # I can request at check in in order to secured a renovation deluxe room. When I was there last month, I think I was on the 16th F and rooms above me were being renovated. All lower floors have been completed.
f) How much is a buffet breakfast fee at the restaurant at this hotel. Don't know the exact THB, but should be around or under THB1000

I have just spent one night at Marriott Marquis - the club lounge has great evening food, but location does not for me. It also a HUUUGE hotel which can feel a bit underwhelming especially when tour buses come.

actually there is a line up of street food vendors on Soi 22 between Sukhumvit and the Marquis.

I'm not sure either of these would be my first choice among Marriotts in Bangkok. In same price range, I would probably opt first for Marriott Sukhumvit, Ren, or perhaps Surawongse.
