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). The Singapore Airlines lounge which opened back in May 2017 is one of the most highly-rated SQ airport lounges in the region so I was actually pretty excited to check it out personally. 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.
