Bangkok Hotel recommendations

Looking for a hotel recommendation for a 3 night stay in Bangkok. This would be for 2 adults, in their mid 30's. Have top tier status with IHG & Hilton and so something from these 2 chains would help. It seems to be a plethora of hotel options for Bangkok and so any hotel recommendations would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

When? What would you like to do in Bangkok? First time in Bangkok?

Millennium Hilton would be a great choice if you are a Diamond. One room category upgrade, lounge access, choice of breakfast at Flow by the river, happy hour, fantastic views of Bangkok, etc. Pool is on the 4th floor and overlooking the river. Complementary shuttle boat to Saphan Taksin BTS and next door to ICONSIAM. Conrad Bangkok is just as good (better food and beverages) but city location and currently undergoing renovation until March or later.


For IHG if you are RA or Platinum Ambassador, you will get great treatment at the InterContinental Bangkok. One room category upgrade, choice of breakfast at Espresso or Happy Hour at the Balcony Lounge if you are PA. Much better treatment if you are a RA with IC Club access for breakfast, teatime, and happy hour. Pool is rooftop on the 37th floor but you may use the ground floor pool at the adjacent Holiday Inn. Central location and easy access to BTS at Chtlom.

Ended up with the Intercontinental. Was good, but they were hard selling the Club lounge access. Will definitely try out the Hilton next time there.

For a very good experience at far less money: Hotel Berkeley Pratunam.

Great Central Location. It's even walkable from the Ratchaprarop Station on the airport express rail link.

Small-ish night market next door with good seafood bbq options.

Take the Klong ferry to Jim Thompson House.

Walking distance to Central World, SIAM, MBK shopping

In Centralworld, I highly recommend eating at Kum Poon. Hip, modern interpretation of traditional provincial Issan recipes.
