Confused about which area to stay, Silom or Sukhumvit or ?

Jump to last reply

I am planning my third trip to Bangkok in May. The past two times I stayed at the Sofitel Silom (now the Pullman G by Sofitel). I enjoyed the area very much. Close to Skytrain and walkable to the river. Plus Silom Road always had so much to watch and enjoy. Now I'm looking again, but it seems the Sukhumvit area might be the in place to stay. Thought about the Marriott Sukhumvit but several reviews have dinged it for its location being just outside the "touristy" areas of Sukhumvit. I'm looking for something in the $80 to $120 per night range. Does anyone have thoughts on the following:

Marriotts Sukhumvit's location +/-
Any alternate hotels in Sukhumvit of that same type
Pullman G experience - read a few negative reviews about upkeep of soft and hard goods
Alternate hotels in the Silom area
Alternate areas to look at for hotels outside of the river area

Want to be close to Skytrain. Doesn't have to right next to it. Don't mind a few block walk. I apologize if this question is too everywhere.
