"river front and wireless area hotels" Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel Tip by bulldogtwo
Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel, Bangkok: 3,917 reviews and 37 photos
There are two locations that I would recommend. First would be the riverside area, as mentioned previously, to include the Royal Orchid and the Oriental. Don't even try to get into the Oriental wearing shorts and sandals! and if you stay there it'll be frowned upon a bit. Having said that it is always rated as one of the best hotels in Bangkok and has for years. The Orchid is a couple blocks away. This area is very pleasant to walk and tour the Government buildings, Grand Palace, Emerald Buddha, china town, etc... Not to mention the laid back river walks, great restuarants and shops. The river is pretty relaxing.
The other location I would recommend is the Ploenchit/Chitlom/Siam and Wireless rd area. The embassy area. Grand Hyatt, great hotel, The Conrad, Four Seasons, Holiday Inn, and others located all in this area. This area has lots of malls, Central Dept Store, World Trade Center mall, and the Siam area hostiing 3 big malls, and the Petchaburi area within walking distance which is the clothing district. Great restuarants in this area as well, although I would say not as good as the river front area, but thats a matter of taste, right?! This is definitly a busier area but you are more centrally located and close to sky train access.
Hope this helped, have fun, good luck!
