Fodor's Review

On six landscaped acres near Sathorn Road, the Sukhothai has numerous courtyards that make the hustle and bustle of Bangkok seem worlds away. Standard rooms are spacious, but not exceptionally well furnished. The one-bedroom suites, by contrast, are exquisite, and have oversize teak-paneled baths and dual washbasins and mirrors. The hotel's well-regarded Continental restaurant is set in a pavilion on an artificial pond.

My second favorite hotel in Asia

The Fodor's review sounds typically snooty. The Sukhothai is simply outstanding. I think the poster who mentioned they are used to dealing with VIPs is partially correct. I certainly felt very important during my stay. From the Mercedes picking me up at the airport (and the driver had a cool cloth waiting for me to wipe my face -- it was the start of the hot season), to the gracious housekeepers, waiters, and porters, to the Sukhothai rep who helped

me check in and navigate Don Muang airport upon my departure...I have never had such excellent service. The hotel itself is set in a relaxing atmosphere of ponds and open-air corridors. Very good public areas for business meetings, and an excellent pool and gym. Restaurants are decent, but you can get meals that are much better -- and much cheaper -- throughout Bangkok (breakfast at Sukhothai is the best bet). Room rates are also expensive by Thai standards, but not more than you'd pay for a deluxe international hotel in western cities. It's not in a super-convenient location like the Regent or the Oriental. Don't stay here if you want to be in the center of all the action. But the Sky Train station is a 10-minute walk away. A taxi to most parts of the city you are likely to visit is generally less than 100 baht -- but it's worth the walk to the Sky Train when traffic is heavy. I like this place so much, I plan to make a stop in Bangkok on my honeymoon just to stay here. It beats the pants off other Leading Hotels of the World affiliates where I have stayed. Listen to most of the other posters here, and not the official Fodor's review. (for those still wondering...my favorite hotel in Asia is La Taverna in Bali)

See The Sukhothai hotel photos

It is hard to explain the elegance hotel as The Sukhothai. Personally, I think the hotel is very unique. It applies The Sukhothai art in its architecture and decoration. (The Sukhothai Period was considered the peak of Art & Architecture in Thailand.) You can see the photos of the hotel at http://www.sukhothai.com . For the location, it is in the centre of Bangkok. You can check the location in its web site.

Favorite hotel in Asia

Wonderfully decorated with impeccable service. I would consider visiting Bangkok just to spend a relaxing weeking at this hotel. Suites are decorated with elegant silk covered furniture. Minimalist Thai style a welcome contrast to chaotic Bangkok.
