"For platinum members, there's a weekly management cocktail on wednesdays, drinks (wine, beer, mojito, hard liquor) and some pretty good amuse bouche provided. It seems that only a few of the platinum members will receive the "invite", but if anyone is there on wednesday nights, try your luck at the club lounge to RSVP for the event."

You're thinking of Ritz Carlton, which does not currently have a Bangkok property. St. Regis provides free restaurant breakfast, as do most of the Marriotts in Bangkok. This property and Surawongse only provide a lounge breakfast (which they are allowed to get away with as legacy Marriotts). I honestly don't know why anyone would stay here with all the better options in Bangkok.

Yes, I agree. Pre-covid people with children were allowed the restaurant but Titanium were not -
I was responding to the poster who said breakfast wasn't free for elite - clearly not the case. I stayed here once - that was enough! I am not a fan of huge convention hotels, having to wait 15 minutes for the lift, mass produced food, etc. Must appeal to some but I'm with you - can't understand that choice with all the other better options

Sorry for the misleading. Hotel with Marriott brand (JW, Marriott) were not used to provide free breakfast in the main restaurant. Lounge breakfast is free but it is usually bad.

Not sure other Bangkok hotels, I stayed 13 different Marriott properties in past 3 months (including resorts, regis and ritz). Some of them were used to provide excellent breakfast but not anymore.

This hotel indeed the best from my recent experiences. Perhaps Bangkok is exempt from Covid.

Some locals like it bc of the glitzy lobby with lots of places to take selfies and glamorous looking pics.

The corner suites there are very nice because there are no rooms next to you (I think), only a room across from you (if I recall correctly).

I think this Marriott might win the title for the largest welcome gift I have received - 3 plates and a basket! 10 cookies, 12 chocolates, and so much fruit.

I absolutely adored my time at the Marriott Marquis in Bangkok, which set my expectations for my hotel experiences in Bangkok quite high. If this is what a convention hotel is swerving, I'm quire curious what hotels this forum enjoys are delivering. I'm not sure how one could improve on the Marriott Marquis. Here are my pros, cons, and photos:

Note: I arrived at 10 PM and missed evening service in the lounge.

Pros:
  • Upgraded several days in advance to a M 1-Bedroom Suite - this upgrade was also pointed out in the pre-arrival email
  • Full and spacious suite with true separation
  • Very comfortable couch in the living room
  • Nice design throughout - felt modern but lots of Thai touches in the artwork and room accents
  • Bed was comfortable - just-right mattress topper, decent cover thickness for the tropics, plush pillows
  • Shower pressure from the wand was great
  • Lots of soft towels
  • Absolutely amazing welcome gift - so many sweets and fruits - three plates and one basket
  • Service was very friendly throughout - no issues with lines despite obvious conventions
  • Offered 4 PM late checkout proactively
  • Luggage delivered extremely quickly
  • Lounge opened 24 hours - great for beverages
  • Offered restaurant breakfast, which was one of the best I've had recently - massive variety
    • Delicious and fresh cinnamon donut
    • STRAWBERRY MILK
    • Some of the softest and freshest mini pancakes
    • Made to order eggs
    • Staff felt more proactive than previous experiences in Korea despite the large size of the restaurant
Cons:
  • No Internet steaming capabilities on the TV
Overall, I look forward to the next time I get the chance to return to this property.

One thing I did not like about this property was the low ceilings. I realize the building itself is old and was re-renovated into the hotel it is today but that's the easiest sign for me that points to lower quality build

Yep. I got an M Suite here and while square footage was decent, the low ceilings made it feel claustrophobic to me. Pool area is also pretty sad. Not a fan of the location down the soi, either.

It is nice they're offering restaurant breakfast, that's a change from when I visited several years ago.

If you're not used to Thai hospitality and service, it can seem quite extraordinary though.
