The Marriott Sukhumvit is the latest addition to the already stellar fleet of Marriott properties that grace various parts of Bangkok. The latest luxury edition is located just steps from the BTS Skytrain in trendy Thong Lor, home to plenty of fine dining and happening bars.
Not to be left out, this new Marriott features its own drink heaven - the Octave Bar and Lounge - which is located up on the 45th floor and has several levels going up to the rooftop, offering one of the most dizzying views in all Bangkok, where you can take in the entire skyline with a 360-degree panorama.

The new Marriott features snazzy new rooms, an outdoor swimming pool, a fitness center and all the amenities you'd expect from an upscale hotel. The hotel also has two excellent restaurants. 57th Street, which is like a chic diner, does home-style cooking along with an international buffet, while the more regal The District is a high-end steakhouse with great ambiance.
This Marriott is quite unique in that it is the first real luxury hotel to be based in this part of Sukhumvit and near the Thong Lor District. While most tourists often stick to the riverside, Silom or lower Sukhumvit Road, this property offers guests the chance to see just why Thong Lor is the top spot to be in town, whether for eating, drinking or dancing the night away.
