Default Bangkok hotel recommendations

Alreet?

I'm heading to Bangkok for a few days in Feb and need somewhere rather nice and swanky to stay.

Banyan Tree looks nice, as does the Sukhothai Hotel.

I stayed in the Shangri La a few years back and that was pretty nice but I always prefer to go on personal recommendations.

Cheers!

Every time I've been in Bangkok for 30 years so a fair few


Not many hotels are referred to as one of the worlds great hotels. The oriental is one

The Grand Millennium in Sukhumvit - A nice hotel, I wouldn't say swanky, but nice.

Walking distance from Asok metro/train station and just 200 yeards from Soi Cowboy

Also near Asok metro - The Westin and a Sheraton.
