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.
