i think i would find the skytrain a bit difficult to manage if i were a bit disabled... escalators are not where you want them from the street.. take nana stop as an example.. there is one but often you are nearly a block away from it and have to walk quite a distance to reach it... same with taskim station..

Bob, one of the good points I always make about staying at Adelphi on soi 8 is that it is about 2 minutes to the ESCALATOR up to the skytrain. Coming back down is just stairs though.

There are usually 2 escalators at a BTS stop, and they are on opposite corners from each other, not straight across the platform, but from fathest corner to corner (like an X).

Not 4 or 5 stars but a very nice small boutique hotel (4? rooms) on the border of the river Chao Phraya ; you can have breakfast lookingat the longtail boats passing by....
A little walk to the ferry and you're at the Royal Palace!
Next to the Art Academy (opposite the Royal Palace) is a small restaurant ( for students?) where you have wonderful meals and if you're lucky you could see queen Sirikit coming -by car- out of the gate...
We had a great time and will definitely go back!

I have stayed at Six Senses Evason Hua Hin which is a great property to relax, personally its good for 2/3 nights as not much to do around.
In Bangkok twice I have stayed at Anantara, Sathom. Mobility should not be an issue as you can always flag a taxi which are quite cheap in Bangkok.
Since you have so many days on hand, you could consider going to Phuket or Koh Samui.
