This Thai hotel group brings more than a touch of its homeland to this 5-star property. The avant-garde building—which resembles an upside-down tuning fork—is one of the most recognizable on the strip. Upon entering, its dramatic exterior gives way to a gentle bow of welcome from the Thai-silk-enrobed reception staff. Interior decor takes its cues from Thailand, with acres of dark wood in the public areas and rooms, in which an ornately detailed shutter separates the
living area from the bathroom. Deep-colored carpets add to the warm tones. The second-floor coffee lounge is the most contemporary space in the hotel and has large flat-screen TVs. The rooftop pool area has a stylish European feel with a modern adjoining gym. There's an excellent Thai restaurant on-site.
