I booked my stay as part of the MegaBonus promotion. While Bangkok hotels are usually a steal the Marriott hotels often price themselves 50% above comparable non-chain hotels. For whatever reasons many properties run a 50% 12h Flash sale every other day on Expedia.com but not Marriott.com. Filing a BRG/LNF claim is impossible since by the time the team checks it (24 hours later) the rates have vanished.

The hotel is located at the beginning of Sukhumvit Road at Soi2. It used to be the center of Sukhumvit but his has since moved further east so while the hotel location is good it's not perfect. It's a large, older property with many old school design elements.

Check-in was very friendly and rather quick given that it takes extra time in Thailand to check in. Since I'm just a lowly Silver I did not get to ask about upgrades or a lounge access. However Internet was free 🙂

The room itself was spacious and well appointed. It showed its age but was very well maintained. It felt great. The AC was humming along and all the appliances worked well.

The hotel Internet was on the slow side – ranging from ok speeds to really slow speeds. I could not really detect a pattern – maybe it was just the WiFi signal fluctuating.

I really liked the pool area (though its small) – looks really nice. The gym is pretty huge too and a great place to work out (though I got reprimanded for using the wrong work out shoes).

I did not have breakfast included in my rate so I did not bother with the hotel breakfast. There is a coffee shop called 'Cafe Bicycle' next door but not part of the hotel which turns out great coffee and pastries.

I liked my stay at the JW Marriott Sukhumvit. There are so many good options in the immediate neighborhood – I'm not sure I'd chose a Marriott for my stay next time without a Megabonus.
