Delux hotels in Bangkok

Can anyone tell me if there is a website that can give me deep discounts on the delux hotels in Bangkok? Would like to stay at the Penn or similar place but I am on a budget. Wonder if a good price is out there?

www.r24.org, www.huahin20.com, wwww.sawadee.com -- these all link in to the same place (I think it is all really Sawadee) and I have found them to have the lowest rates which include all taxes & breakfast for most hotels. As far as which hotel, there is tons of information from posters on this board. All have their favorites.

Hi Austine, I know of an agent in New York that has good rates on Deluxe hotels in Bangkok and also maintains and office there. I just got back from 3 weeks in Thailand and Honf Kong and saved a lot of money with him. His name is Chip Cooper and his e-mail is [email protected] if you're interested. Very easy going guy and nice to work with. Cheers, Nancy

For some hotels, you'll get the best price at that hotel's own website. For others, asiahotels.com or another internet site can do better. Check several sources before you buy. Generally, I find that travel agents have the highest prices.

I've found that hotel websites or calling the hotel directly is often the best price for deluxe hotels. Asiahotels is fabulous but, in my experience, not for 5 star hotels like Penn or Oriental. In fact in the case of the Oriental they are significantly higher than the rack rate.

Kathie is right -- check out all the sources including the hotel itself. Also,I've found that Am Ex sometimes has excellent rates as part of their fine hotel program.

If you're interested in the Royal Orchid Sheraton, which is a step below the Penn, but still very nice, there are great senior discounts (if you're 50, you can join AARP) and decent AAA discounts. Also, my brother got the Shangri-la for $65 a night on priceline.
