The W Bangkok opened its doors at North Sathorn Road in 2012. The hotel comprises two buildings, a 31-storey tower offering rooms and suites, and a Thai national heritage building known as the House on Sathorn, built in 1889 and with a rather interesting history: originally built as a mansion for a wealthy Chinese businessman, the house was converted into a hotel in the 1920s, and from 1948 to 1999 it hosted the Russian embassy in Thailand. Nowadays it hosts Paii, a casual dining concept featuring modern Thai food.
Here’s some official pictures and the property’s description of their Marvelous Suite:
Celebrate your stay in Bangkok in Marvelous Suites. Starting in the living room, a rich spectrum of black, white, chocolate and purple hues sets a glamorous tone that harmonizes with the bright city lights that shine through a wall of windows. The custom interior is further magnified by metallic gemstones, a statement Geode sculpture and the room’s avant-garde furnishings, including: a three-person sofa and ottoman chair wrapped in black horse fur, an oversized black and white striped coffee table, and a contemporary rocking chair.
Get comfortable with a snack from the Munchie Box and sip from the mini bar or coffee and tea maker. An iPod docking station with Bose Sound Bar System provides a custom soundtrack, while the 46-inch Samsung LED TV with in-room movies offers endless entertainment. A large closet keeps personal items out of sight.
Nearby, a glass-topped work desk paired with a white leather rolling chair and reading light adds to the eclectic, electric mix. Home to a cordless telephone and Jack Pack media hub, it also provides an easy space from which to utilize the High Speed Internet Access.
When night falls, retreat behind the opaque mirrored wall to the separate bedroom, where city vistas remix with a second 46-inch LED TV and king-size signature W bed. Framed by a metallic gemstone wall, the lavish bed is topped with 350-thread-count sheets, plump pillows from the W pillow menu and sequined Muay Thai gloves. Another large closet takes care of organization.
Refresh before turning in with a soak in the black brick-tiled master bathroom, where a freestanding sunken tub with inspiring views synthesizes with a rain shower, double sinks, Bliss Spa® sinkside six bath amenities and a 19-inch TV. A separate WC further amplifies privacy, while a plush bathrobe invites you to wrap up post relaxation. A guest WC is located off the living room.
Here is our video review and commentary on this suite:
This is a very W suite: cool, stylish and with lots of purple accents, their signature color. Luxury hotels in Bangkok use to be fairly inexpensive. Rooms at this W sells for around THB 4,000/$130++ and as a category 4, it requires 20 to 30k points per night. This suite in particular sells north of THB 10,000/$330++, or 55k points per night. Have you ever been upgraded to one of these suites?
