With all of the recent buzz surrounding Club Carlson’s fourth promotion, Park Plaza’s Ultimate Night Giveaway (related post), I figured it would be appropriate to pick up on the trip reports related to our recent trip to Hong Kong, Macau, Bangkok, Phuket, and Singapore. Back in April, Kevin and I spent our first two nights in Thailand at the Park Plaza Hotel Bangkok Soi 18, and our experience here was truly superb to say the least.
We redeemed a total of 30,000 Club Carlson points (15,000 per night) for the two nights that we were there, and it was an excellent redemption from the first Radisson Big Night Giveaway promotion back in November of 2011 (related post). Since we arrived in BKK later in the evening, we hopped in a cab directly to the hotel, which was about a 25 minute ride.
When we entered the Park Plaza Bangkok Soi 18, we were impressed with its trendy and modern design – to us it resembled a W Hotel. The hotel is a new contemporary property, centrally located in the Sukhumvit district with easy walking access to the BTS Asoke and MRT Sukhumvit. The hotel offers free wifi, a beautiful roof-top pool, a modern fitness center, and a delicious 24-hour restaurant on called Mezza.
Check in was simple, and we were given a nice corner room on a high floor. We really loved our room; though it was on the smaller side, it was elegantly-chic and met our needs in every way with a large, comfortable king bed, a 37″ wall-mounted LCD flat-screen television, and a full bathroom (including a separate bathtub), complete with modern details and design touches.
This property is definitely Bangkok (and Club Carlson’s) little gem. From check in to check out we had nothing but a positive experience and exceptional service from all of the staff members. There are several 7-11 stores nearby to stock up on bottled water, and be sure to try some local street food, which can be found at virtually every corner. I wouldn’t think twice about staying here again the next time I’m the Sukhumvit district of Bangkok – can’t wait to go back!
