Bangkok Hotel Help (FS, PEN, or MO)...

Jump to last reply

I am spending three nights in Bangkok in October, and I have the following choices of accommodations:

1. Four Seasons promo rate of $225/night.

2. Peninsula (with breakfast, afternoon tea (once during stay),possible upgrade). $300/night.

3. Mandarin Oriental. (Breakfast, $100 spa credit, possible upgrade). $475/night.

I have been to Bangkok a few times, though not in a while (last time I was there the SkyTrain was new/ under construction). I've stayed at The Mandarin Oriental, which is pretty special, but seems relatively overpriced. I've also stayed at the Four Seasons, and I'm familiar with The Pen, where i stayed only for a quick one night layover. Even though i've been to Bangkok, I am completely lost when it comes to understanding the city and the various pluses and minuses of each location. i am traveling for leisure and will be there for a minimum of three nights before going to Chiang Mai for a few days.

I was leaning towards The Peninsula, but the rate at the Four Seasons is so good, it is really tempting.

I Would love to hear advice, particularly about the differences in locations. Thank you.
