Bangkok hotel help ASAP

I will be spending a long weekend in Bangkok at the beginning of January. I'm looking for some hotel advice. What's the best area to stay in? Riverside? We don't have much time so location is key. Also we'd like a nice pool/ outdoor area to relax in. We are looking to stay somewhere luxurious 5 star but not prohibitively expensive. Also is agoda the best way to book our trip?

www.booking.com has them all rated and reviewed.
For me SivaHotel suite $150 or so rooftop infinity pool
IHG.com Intercontinental also excellent JW Marriott.com good.
For budget well located 5 star bidding priceline $50
amari.com/watergate rated 5 star but more like a 4 but great deal. Usually surf around on asiarooms.com agoda.com otel.com
for best no bid deals.Priceline bidding gets me very best price albeit lower tier 5 stars.

Happy Hunting!

The Sheraton Royal Orchid, located on the river has the loveliest garden poll area of any hotel in Bangkok, IMO. Check the Starwood site, they make have some special offers.

Thanks all. I will look into these options. Also this is not business it's pleasure does that change any opinions?

The Dusit Thani Bangkok is pretty luxurious and not terribly overpriced. Plus good restaurants.

I always think of the Dusit as a business hotel. Also, not a great location for public transport.

The Sheraton Royal Orchid, I found it pretty nice and worthy to spend some time relaxing in there.
