I have stayed at Athenee Suite last time and it was great. Do they have non-renovated ones or just quality vary that much?

I don't know. This was not a renovated room.

I'm not complaining . . . it was spacious and we appreciated the upgrade, but it was nowhere near as nice as the Royal Club Suite in the photoes upthread. Had some mildew odor, but was tolerable.

And your stay was in 2019? Thatís strange, I thought they had completed renovations for all their rooms.

When I stayed here, I got one of the renovated red suites on a high floor with SNAs, so I was happy but the bathroom did seem dated, although it had lots of marble so I really couldn't complain, especially since AFAIK the seemingly dated appearance was the standard style in Thailand.

Yes. I don't see how a "renovated" floor could have the mildew odor, since that usually comes from the carpet. Which certainly did not look new.

Any property with a noticeable mildew odor is off my list. Not only do I find the odor, itself, quite unpleasant, but it can be symptomatic of a wide variety of problems, none of which I have any interest in encountering.

I'm very sensitive to mildew and didn't have a problem when I stayed here, although I have had problems elsewhere. In one very bad case it was attributed to a minor plumbing leak that had occurred previously where something (probably carpet in the entry area) remained wet after the leak was fixed. In some climates, mildew problems are common and require use of dehumidifiers.

Same for me. If a hotel has a mildew problem or if AC vents are not very clean, I will have a stuffy nose all night. No issue at Athenee.

It would seem then to be floor specific, as there is another recent (and far more negative than mine) report of strong mildew odor at Athenee.
