The Renaissance Bangkok Ratchaprasong is the Marriott's latest offering to the upscale Bangkok hotel market. This boutique hotel has luxury rooms and suites that feature marble entrances, white oak floors and Tanganyika furniture and closets to complement the over-sized windows and glass-enclosed bathrooms. They look oh so suave. Other room features include hot tubs and whirlpools in the suites, amenities like 'jack packs' with international electrical and internet sockets in each room and stunning views over central Bangkok.

In addition to the luxurious rooms, the hotel is also well equipped with recreation and relaxation facilities. There is an indoor swimming pool and sauna, along with the Rfit state-of-the-art fitness center, which is available for complimentary use by all guests.
Additionally, the hotel's Quan Spa is an elegant massage and therapeutic treatment center that offers private baths and Vichy showers that aim to recreate the experience of swimming in the ocean. These accentuate treatments like aroma fusion massage or Thai herbal therapy, which are just a few of the countless rejuvenating options.
The food, dining and drinking scene in the Renaissance Ratchaprasong is no slouch, either, as the hotel has some excellent eclectic dining choices ranging from Fei Ya - a stylish northern Chinese restaurant that serves up succulent Beijing duck - to La Tavola, a homey Italian eatery and snazzy wine bar with authentic Italian cuisine.
Other options include the Flavors international restaurant, which is divided into different cuisine zones all circled around an open kitchen (or, the R Bar), where mouthwatering tapas are served up along with fine wines and cocktails. Meanwhile, a DJ spins the latest tunes.

Business travelers and groups will love staying here not only due to the Renaissance's position right in the heart of the city, but also because the hotel features some fantastic business amenities. These included a conference center with 20,000 square feet of space and fourteen separate meeting venues, all of which can provide customized catering menus so as to handle any group's needs.
The Renaissance Ratchaprasong is perfectly positioned just steps from the Ploenchit BTS Skytrain station, making access to the rest of the city a cinch. Even better, the hotel is within easy walking distance of all of Bangkok's top shopping spots, with Central World, Gaysorn and Siam Paragon malls all just a short stroll away.
With all these features, it is pretty hard to find fault with the Renaissance Bangkok Ratchaprasong. This downtown hotel is sure to be a staple of central Bangkok for many years to come.
