JW Marriott Hotel Bangkok
Travel Blogs from Bangkok
So I have lived in Los Angeles, the San Fransisco area, battled Texas traffic and been immersed in the traffic of Bangkok...I have definitely experienced traffic in my days. This was the best one yet! I started the day with a quick workout followed by getting my decadent juice from the breakfast buffet downstairs, loaded my backpack with my cameras …
When I was in Ecuador, I experienced the shopping techniques in the markets. Negotiating was expected. This was no different here in Bangkok...except that you could barter at the mall as well! Ryan was working and I had the morning to catch up on some things...Girls camp planning and music class scheduling...and a great workout downstairs with the …
So I am here to tell you that if you want to attend Church when you travel, there are some things I would recommend you do to ensure you make it there...on time and at the right location. So when we were on Phi Phi island, we realized there were no Church services on the island...too remote. So, in our planning, we should have planned to stay in …
So the last couple of days I haven't been able to write...just upload photos and videos. We were on a plane from Phuket to Bangkok and then we went straight from the hotel to explore since our room wasn't ready yet. Ryan was so excited to show me around! Super cute...he has been here once before for work and so he knew a lot of the sights to see. < …
After a long seven hour red eye, we arrived in warm Bangkok. Tired and achy, we luckily made it through immigration/customs quickly, and found ourselves in a cab on the way to the JW Marriott. This isn't a "backpacking" hotel, but it's exactly what we needed to re-energize ourselves.
God bless this hotel, and the suite upgrade they gave us …

Historical Traveler Reviews JW Marriott Hotel Bangkok
We staying at the JW Marriott in Bangkok for four nights, as we needed a base to work from for a couple of days. I can't even begin to say enough to praise this hotel. We booked a room on the club/executive level floor, which for the price, was incredible. We were give a fantastic room, with a beautiful and enormous bathroom. The executive lounge is even better, with free wireless Internet access and always available drinks and snacks. The executive lounge staff is happy to help you with travel reservations (they changed our airline tickets twice) and is, generally, some of the most responsive and helpful staff I've ever met. We'll definitely be staying here next time we're in the area.
The JW Marriott was our third hotel in Thailand, and it was definitely a jewel! The hotel is beautifully decorated and impeccably maintained. The entire service staff from check-in to check-out was incredible. Many seemed to anticipate our needs and bent over backwards to please us and help us navigate the city. There was enough variety in the restaurant food to please even the pickiest eaters: perfect at that point in our trip as we wanted choices beyond Asian food. Our room was comfortable and well appointed. All in all, we would highly recommend this hotel.
Was reassured by the level of security shown after some bombing incidents in this region.
Room was spacious. Toilets nicely designed. Location is fine, near to sky train.
The price is reasonable too for this type of hotel.
Was there for a conference. Loved the food they served during the tea breaks!
My only complaint,... my room didn't have a very good view. obstructed by neigbouring building!
Good Hotel Near the Skytrain
Stayed here for 5 days at the end of May and beginning of June 2005. Service was good all around, although I wasn't in my room that much. I found the lobby to be quite lovely and was relaxing to sit and people watch. The room was a little small but the bathroom more than made up for it, it was huge. I think the biggest selling point for this hotel is its proximity to the Skytrain. It is maybe 2-3 minute walk to the Ploenchit platform. Taxi's are readily available and they always give you a card with the taxi number if you have any problems with the driver. This is the only hotel I have used in Bangkok and I would recommend it.
Wonderful room, friendly hotel staff but ......................
Clean and elegant room with wonderful turn down service. We didn't find concierge to be of much help. They seem to have problem understanding us and vice versa. We tried to ask for suggestions and always ended up with little or no information.
I don't like writing negative reviews, but I can't help myself on this one. I have stayed in most of the top hotels hotels in Bangkok over the years, so I feel I can give quite an objective review.
A sanctuary in Bangkok
I have stayed in this hotel many times on business over the last year and rate it as one of the best city hotels I've stayed at. The rooms are great, everything works well. Only criticism would be a bit of an ordinary pool and I think some rooms are getting a little in need of a refurb.
The location is great for business and nightlife, and it is an oasis of calm from the exciting craziness of Bangkok on the streets outside. If you're going for a holiday you might be better with one of the riverside resorts but if all you want is a functional room where everything works, in a handy location then this is great. Have got his hotel cheap on priceline a couple of times too.
An oasis of luxury in Bangkok.
Excellent hotel which earns its 5 star rating. Very friendly staff, always smiling! My wife was so pleased with the staff that she called the manager to offer her compliments upon our departure.
Loved the JW Marriott
Great location, amazing room on the 21st floor. Room was decorated very, very nice. French doors into marble bathroom and huge T.V. too. The outside of the building is rather bleak, however, once you enter the lobby, you know you have arrived. I will go back for sure.
