Guestrooms were located from the 15th to 32nd floor. I booked the Premium King room and was upgraded to an Executive King room measuring 41sqm. A short entryway leads into the room with floor to ceiling windows with a northeastern view of Bangkok.
The renovated room gave the room a modern look and was greeted with plenty of natural light.
The room was large enough to include a circular desk and a comfortable and spacious seating area with a table big enough for dining.
Plenty of universal power outlets were located throughout the room. There were USB and HDMI connections which made it easy to connect a laptop to the TV for work or entertainment.
The luxurious king-size bed had high quality bedding providing a good night’s sleep every night. Pillows were provided in different sizes and different levels of firmness. They were fantastic and provided excellent neck support. Additional pillows are available with the request to housekeeping. The nightstands had universal power outlets, USB outlets and blind and lighting controls.
In general, the room was big and the renovation gave it a contemporary look. It has all the conveniences a traveler would need.
It was apparent that the bathrooms were not fully renovated like the rest of the room. It was a dark themed standard bathroom with a separate shower that was good in size and had good water pressure. The shower comes with both a rain shower head and a handheld one.
