One Night in Bangkok, on a Pretty Tight Schedule in November

Jump to last reply

If everything goes according to plan (and there's no guarantee of that), we will arrive BKK from Bhutan at 4:30 PM, which means we'll be coming into the city at rush hour. We would like to eat out that night somewhere really nice (Gaggon?) so it would be great if we could stay at a hotel that is close by. Originally, we were going to stay at the Shangri La but as you can see from a nearby post, access to the Skytrain has become more difficult. On previous visits we have stayed at the Oriental, the Penn, the Intercontinental (executive floor), the Plaza Athenee (executive floor) and the Shangri La (Krungthep wing) so that should give you an idea of what we are looking for. Our flight the next morning leaves at 10:10 AM, which means we will be departing our hotel in time to arrive BKK 2 hours prior. If we have breakfast at all at the hotel, it will be room service supplemented by nibbles at the Thai Airways Royal Silk lounge.

Any suggestions for hotels will be appreciated.
