The hotel prides itself on its stylish rooms, which command incredible views of the cityscape, with an interior décor that exudes a carefully crafted tone of understated elegance, finished with a subtle touch of Thai charm. All rooms and suites are soundproofed and boast two-line telephones with voicemail, fax, and high-speed Internet access. Bathrooms are decorated in Italian marble and feature spacious bathtubs and separate glass-encased shower units.

Boasting world-class meeting and convention facilities with unparalleled support services, the hotel’s Event Managers can tailor your event to virtually any specification. And they will assist you with essentials such as presentation requirements, entertainment options and handling third-party suppliers if needed.

There is also a large 24-hour fitness center with electronic cardiovascular machines, resistance equipment and a number of free weights. The center has a number of TVs to treadmill by and a Juice Bar to satiate your thirst once you’ve burned off all those carbohydrates. And the view: it’s amazing. Being located right at the Erawan/Rajadamri intersection you gain a superb panorama of the downtown core and if it’s Race Day, you can even see the horses gallop by at the nearby Royal Bangkok Sports Club.
