Need help with deciding on Bangkok/Phuket hotels

Jump to last reply

Hi, we have a 2 night stay in Bangkok on our way in to Phuket and one night on our way back. After doing a lot of research, have narrowed down my choices but can't seem to settle on one so as usual, decided to turn to Fodorites for help! I am trying to decide between Le Meridien, The Westin & the Holiday Inn (executive Club room) in Bangkok. They are all around the $120-140 range, Westin being the highest. The Holiday Inn is the only one that includes breakfast but of course, the other hotels are better. I really like the Meridien, just not sure of the location, if we will be uncomfortable being that close to the red light area etc although the corner room looks amazing!

On the way back, thought we would stay on the river, maybe the Ramada? That is about $100 per night.

In Phuket, I am trying to decide between the Hilton, Le Meridien & the Movenpick, all at Karom Beach. I want to stay in the Patong/Karom/Kata area. Want something on a nice beach, preferably with a sea view & not too crowded, though not dead at night either.

Any input that would help me decide would be great! Thanks in advance.
