Bob has pinpointed the main drawback i.e. the non river location - if that is important to you. Personally I prefer the Four Seasons which is on the same road, 2 doors down. But the Grand Hyatt is a lovely hotel, great Thai restaurant specifically. If you are getting a good rate go right ahead and book it.

Haven't stayed at the Grand Hyatt...too massive of a place for my taste... but have walked passed it many times as I stay next door at the Four Seasons...I highly reccomend the Four Seasons...but whichever one you pick, they're both in a great part of town.Happy Travels!

It's a nice hotel. The Thai restaurant on the 4th floor has an order from the menu "buffet" (one price, all you can eat) that is a real treat. For my taste, the rooms are very modern and feel a bit "cold." I perfer to stay by the river. While there is nothing wrong with the Hyatt, it's "just another luxury hotel in a large Asian city" while staying by the river makes it Bangkok. I also find that the air is clearer by the river, and I'm not as impacted by the traffic.

If you prefer a hotel away from the river, either the Hyatt or the Four Seasons are very nice.

I have stayed there and it is very nice. They also used to do the helicopter from the airport direct to te hotel helipad-very cool (if you husbands company is paying for it!!

They are doing some remodling now and the pool is closed until about May 2005 so if a pool is on you list go elsewhere. If a pool is not that big of deal then sd=stay there because theya re discounting rates due to the reconstruction.

Just got back from a trip there. Didn't stay at the Hyatt but did shop nearby. Its a nice place but staying on the River was much nicer (in my opinion)...
