Hotel Review: W Bangkok (Spectacular Room) - Convenient Luxury Hotel Near Chong Nonsi and Siam

After obtaining Platinum Elite status on the Marriott Rewards (soon to be called Marriott Bonvoy) program, I have been a lot more eager to try out properties because the 4:00PM guaranteed late check-out benefit is something that I value a lot. Therefore, when I visited Bangkok late last year, I decided to stay at the W Bangkok which is somewhat connected to Chong Nonsi BTS station. Check out my review of the Spectacular Room here!

Lounge Review: Singapore Airlines SilverKris Lounge - Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK)

When I flew back from Bangkok last weekend, I took the opportunity to check out the the SilverKris Lounge at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK).

There is a lack of signage in my opinion so if you are having trouble locating the lounge, it is actually located near to Gate D7.

Hotel Review: InterContinental Bangkok (Executive Deluxe Room) - Adjacent to Chit Lom BTS Station

When I visited Bangkok back in February (yes this stay was almost 8 months back), the hotel rates were through the roof for some reason on that weekend that I was there. As such, I decided to redeem some of my IHG Rewards Club points for a stay at the InterContinental Bangkok. I flew in from Haneda to Bangkok on Japan Airlines Business Class and was pleasantly impressed by the overall experience - the food (both in terms of taste and presentation) was great and the on-board service was truly memorable. Even though I was given a premium lane pass, I decided to use the automated gates instead since the queue there was even shorter.
