Hotel Review: Bangkok Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit

Shopping and street food are the main reasons why I love traveling to Bangkok. While most guys detest the idea of embarking on these kind of trips with their girlfriends/wives, I consider myself lucky because CS supports my whims all the way. In fact, he allots the entire weekend on my Chatuchak Market bargain hunting and barely complains even after hours of walking under the sun. So to make up for all his sacrifices, I make sure that he's coming home to a nice room with a big comfortable bed. Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok is still our first choice but this time around, we were welcomed by the hospitable staff of Bangkok Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit.

Getting an Uber ride from the airport saved us half of what the hotel charges for its pick up service. The hotel allowed us to check-in early which was a relief after a red eye flight.

Guests can choose among several types of accommodation depending on one's need and budget. Each room and suite offers five-star perks, elegant decor and mesmerizing view of Sukhumvit district. As CS and I spend most of our time outside, we opted for the cheapest room available - a deluxe room with a king-size bed and city view for around Php7,200 per night (inclusive of breakfast for 2) booked thru Agoda. Other room categories include premier deluxe rooms, executive rooms, one-bedroom and two-bedroom suites and a presidential suite.

Our 34sqm deluxe room features a living area, 40-inch cable television, iPod dock, writing desk with ergonomic chair, in-room safe, iron and ironing board, 24-hour room service, complimentary bottled water, mini-refrigerator, coffee and tea, marble bathroom, bidet, shower/tub combination, lighted make up mirror, hair dryer, and Thann bathroom amenities.

Pros: Great location near BTS Station, plenty of food and massage places around the hotel, polite and helpful staff, spacious and well-appointed rooms with great city view and delicious breakfast.

Cons: No free internet!
