Courtyard by Marriott
Experience the central business and shopping district at Courtyard by Marriott
Courtyard by Marriott Bangkok is situated in the down town business district of the city and walking distance to the Ratchadamri BTS Skytrain Station. It’s on a side street off the main thoroughfare of Ratchadamri Road and ideally sited for shopping and business affairs in the Ratchaprasong district. It’s a clean, stylish and modern hotel with a four star rating which could easily be classified as five.
Right from arriving at the front lobby, the smiles and friendliness of the staff is abundant. With a minimum of fuss, I checked in for a two night stay in a deluxe corner room. There is the use of marble and timber finishes throughout which helps to radiate the elegance and quality of this hotel.
The 316 rooms are beautifully appointed and comfortably furnished with warm natural tones. Bathrooms are also clad in marble with plenty of room to move and overall they are perfectly finished. I spent most of one day in the room after a big night out around town and got to know the plush bed very well. Very comfortable.
The large swimming pool and deck area on the fifth floor is a great spot to chill out and get a tan or move into the fully appointed gym next door for a complete workout. Snacks and drinks are also available from a small bar by the pool. I had the chance to hang out for a couple of hours one morning soaking up the glorious rays. Also on the same floor is the Thada Heritage Spa for all your pampering needs.
There’s plenty of top shopping available in this area of Bangkok with the major shopping malls just a short walk away or one stop on the BTS Skytrain to Siam.
Breakfast is a pleasure in the main Momo Café on the ground floor of the hotel. Thai and Western dishes combine on the buffet to make a delightful breakfast. Momo Vafe also offers a la carte lunch and dinner menus. Executive members have a separate dining area for breakfast and other snacks and drinks on the 18th floor.
Courtyard by Marriott hotel offers luxurious accommodation, but at a very reasonable price. In my travels, I have seen many a five star hotel with a lot less to offer than this four star business hotel. For the location and style you can’t go wrong booking a stay at Courtyard by Marriott Bangkok.
