This stylish hotel hovers over the auspicious Erawan Shrine. The impressive atrium, with an extensive modern art collection, soars four stories high to a glass roof. In the spacious rooms, the wood floors are strewn with tasteful rugs, the walls are hung with original art, and a desk and a couple of chairs are positioned directly in front of the bay windows. There are plenty of high-tech accoutrements, too. Baths have separate showers, oversize tubs, and private dressing areas. The Italian fare at Spasso is especially creative; come for lunch even if you aren't staying here. There's also a lively nightclub. The Skytrain walkway system connects the hotel to many more places.

This hotel is well worth the money, (I paid less than $150 a night), but it's not quite as luxurious as you would think. My room wasn't quite as spacious as I thought it would be and I ordered room service twice and both times had to call back and re-order because they had forgotten to put in my order. However, the building itself is beautiful and it's in a great location. If this weren't in Bangkok, where luxury hotels on the cheap abound, I would
highly recommend the Grand Hyatt. However, I think I may investigate more hotels before my next trip to Bangkok.
