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.

As a Gold, we were given complete executive benefits of breakfast at either the 57 Cafe restaurant in the lobby or the lounge on the 40th floor. We tried the breakfast downstairs once but preferred the breakfast at lounge to avoid the crowds and have a relaxing breakfast experience. Afternoon teatime from 3 to 5 PM was great, and so was the happy hour at the lounge. Hot station at breakfast and happy hour. Hot station closed at 8 PM during happy hours though. Dessert and booze open bar remained open until 9:30 PM. I invited several FT friends to the lounge and was never nickled or dimed about their presence.
I stayed at this property during the Songkran weekend and in general I am quite happy with this hotel and location. Since I have been to BKK regularly I don't need to stay in the 'happening' areas as I don't need to get anywhere for touristic stuff etc.
I liked the area around the hotel as you could find nice streetfood and if you want good Japanese food this is also the place to be.
Kalboz - thanks for the info on your flikr on the massage place close to the hotel, it was value for money despite the condition of the interior, the most important was the massage itself which was nice and relaxing.
Sadly during my stay (maybe it was because I was using the 50% voucher) was not upgraded and did not get the privilege for making an exception for the 2nd room guest for lounge access. I had to pay extra for the access.
But yes the evening offerings were normally very good, first time that I have seen a cook present to make the warm dishes to your request.
The Skybar at the top of the hotel is a great addition (during Songkran - they made an exception to the dress code- which I think should be kept always that shorts are possible as long as the person is decently dressed).

btw: for me, the crossing at the main junction to the BST was not too bad ( maybe because it was Songkran so less traffic), but I thought it was doable even with luggage.

Cheers!

Sorry to hear that you did not get any upgrades, maybe they were fully booked.

True enough, the area around Marriott Sukhumvit 57 is authentically Thai and we enjoy it immensely. And if you been to the tourist sights already and tired of the trendy places, this is the area where to stay and enjoy Bangkok. Close to Thong Lo BTS station to get you anywhere to chose to go.

There is a food/vegetable market in the morning right that starts at 6 AM at Sukhumvit 57 stretching into Sukhumvit proper. If you go out early enough, you will see the monks collecting their daily rations. The street food is fresh, delicious, and cheap. When my mother in law stays with us, this is where we get her breakfast from. On the same Soi and right across from the property, there is a row of several authentic Japanese eateries. On the opposite side of Sukhumvit, by the BTS station, there is the famous Sukhumvit 38 night market that stays open until 3 AM. 2-minutes walk and you are right in one the best places to have delicious Thai street dinner.

The massage place, Pornchanok Massage, where I get my foot massages is basic enough and does the job. You can't go wrong with $5/hour foot massage. One FT friend ran out of this place complaining that it was too rudimentary Avoid "Asia Herb Association" on Thong Lo! Their masseuses are lazy and don't follow the information sheet they have you complete upon check in. When I asked politely that she follow the instructions for firm massage, the masseuse replied that she did not have any power!!!

Thanks for those great pics! I never understood why anyone would want to stay in the "Mall area" as I call it. This is so much better.

Once again Kalboz comes through with great pics. However the happy hour setup is not the way I've seen it earlier this year: they've added more food and booze and gotten rid of the removable wooden shelving.

I also like the area and can vouch for the kanom place just 50m up Soi Thong Lor on the west side as well as Ban Ice at Soi 5. There's a few other decent little local places in the vicinity and being away from teh tourist throngs makes the location desirable.

Thank you Doug for the kind words & thanks for the tip about the kanom place, I am sure my little ones would love to visit that store!

As for the food at the lounge, it was amazing! The quality, preparations, and portions were great and ample enough as to make a full dinner from these delicious little plates. Actually, I encountered one FT guest whom I have known for years at the club lounge and he stated to me that weeks ago the food was even better at the club lounge. How could that be??? It was just perfect when we were there!

Beg to differ, but Thonglor-Ekkamai is a happening area. The most happening in BKK for young Thais with money. Almost every new cool place opens in T-E now. If you want an old school uncool joint, we had a great meal at the Great American Rib Co. on 36. I'm a rib-snob, & my ribs are excellent (but there's only so much you can do w/ a Weber), but theirs were better. I would have been happy with my rack last night in KC or Memphis. Nice bark, smoke ring on the inside, and tender without quite falling off the bone. We ate them with no sauce and they were perfect. I haven't been to GARC in years and I've read on TA that they've gone downhill. Not so.

JamesEaston posted this in the exec lounge sticky. Since it provides a bit more info than what I need for the exec lounge sticky I thought I'd post it here. Thanks to JE for providing the info:

JW Bangkok – Massive lounge with large outdoor terrace on the 16th floor. Two reception/concierge staff on duty from opening to closing outside and several wait staff on duty inside including a chef for their large open air kitchen during breakfast and dinner. As you can imagine, with an open air kitchen and private chef – inside the lounge itself, breakfast and dinner are complete meals and special requests are accepted as well. Four hours of happy hour include horrible wine but premium alcohol and imported beer. Also sweets, snacks, sandwiches and more are served between breakfast and dinner so you never need to leave the hotel or eat anywhere else

Cheers.

which floor was this apt? looks more like they gave you a 3br apt in the MEA, as - according to their hp - they don't offer 3br-suites in the hotel-part of the building?

The apartments are from floor 14 to 21, while the hotel is located on floors 22-41 with half of the 40th is devoted to the executive lounge space. Rooftop venues are on 45-48 floors.

Our 3-bedroom apartment was on the 21st floor and our hotel suite was on the 41st. Both located in the same building sharing the same staff, entrance, pool, and other facilities but serviced by two different sets of elevators.

yep, I know re building sharing. Just wondered if you had a booking for the hotel part and if they "upgraded" you to the apartment-part with that booking.

ah, that's sort of strange - as otherwise they seem to strictly seperate the two parts. ;-).

@Chris, as I indicated above, they are not separate, including the FD

Both located in the same building sharing the same staff, entrance, pool, and other facilities but serviced by two different sets of elevators.

Why not? Never heard of this before ...

Since the property opened, we have had 3 stays here for a total of 20 nights, 18 of which were at the MEA and we always had full access to the club lounge ...
