The Athenee Hotel is a 374 room luxury high-rise hotel in downtown Bangkok, close to the city’s main shopping areas and the Skytrain. This property was formerly known as The Plaza Athenee, a Royal Meridien Hotel until 2017, when following an extensive redesign and refurbishment, it it reopened as part of Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts.
Located on the exclusive 26th floor of the hotel, Royal Club Suites combine refined elegance with modern luxury. The focal point of the room—indeed of the entire suite—is the striking view of downtown Bangkok through floor-to-ceiling windows framed by lustrous silk drapes.
The graceful living room encompasses a private dining area, complete with a dining table and chairs for two. Two large sofas and armchairs are clustered together—the perfect spot to host friends or an informal business meeting. Striking modern Thai artwork graces the walls—its soft earthy colors complementing the elegant cream and gold color scheme.
A flat screen television is complete with satellite programming, while a CD player with a CD library offers a wide selection of music for your enjoyment. A generous working area includes a large wooden desk and ergonomic desk chair—situated by the window to enjoy the natural light. High Speed Internet Access and an ID telephone keep you in touch with work and home.
The master bedroom features the comforts of a king-size Luxury Collection bed, which is dressed in white linens and topped by multiple pillows, a lightweight duvet, and shimmering silk accent pillows. The dramatic dark wood headboard is embellished with intricate Thai metalwork. Armchairs by the window offer a perfect spot to read your daily newspaper or view the suite’s second flat screen TV.
The indulgent bathroom comprises a large oval soaking tub, a walk-in-shower, an electric washlet, ample signature toiletries, plush bathrobes and slippers, and a separate telephone.
Guests of our Royal Club Suites enjoy access to a world of exclusive amenities at The Royal Club Lounge. Enjoy personalized check-in and late checkout until 2pm when available. Begin your day with breakfast buffet in the lounge or at The Rain Tree Café. Tea, coffee and beverage service, afternoon High Tea, and evening cocktails and canapés are also included.
