Amari Watergate Bangkok
Centrally located in the shopping district, the Amari Watergate Hotel is a great place for those on a shopping trip to Bangkok. The hotel is competitive in its prices with a deluxe room costing USD88 a night. The best part of this 5-star hotel is that it has suites ranging from Presidential to Executive and for those who want to live it up in style, the Amari Watergate Bangkok is the place for you.
Ideal for honeymooners and executive travelers, the hotel offers several amenities including a spa where you can unwind after a hectic day. In fact, the hotel has special packages from massages, body scrub, body wrap etc and it is apparent that the hotel wants to be a premium one in its range.
What I like about Amari Watergate Hotel
Since this hotel falls under the category of upper crust hotels, there are several things that are good about the hotel. First, there is the bar and the assorted restaurants which are world class though the prices are a bit steep.
Next, you can get Free or Paid Wi-Fi (depending on your booking preference) in your room or suite which means that business travelers need not bother about venturing out to work in the night. Added to this is the availability of conference rooms and meeting rooms where you can have meetings with your colleagues. Finally, the buffet as well as the breakfast spread is sumptuous and inviting.
What I dislike about Amari Watergate Hotel
Though the hotel is meant for those who are not on a budget, some of the items are definitely overpriced among hotels in the same class. You should also remember to book a room in the higher floors since the streets surrounding the hotel are quite noisy that may spoil your sleep. Finally, if you book your room without asking for free Wi-Fi, the separate charges for Wi-Fi access might make you wince.
How to get to Amari Watergate Hotel
When you take a taxi from the airport during peak hours, remember to avoid the routes passing through the shopping district as you might get caught in the traffic jams which are endemic in those roads. Of course, this need not act as a deterrent during other times.
There are enough shopping centers that are nearby to the Amari Watergate Hotel and the Platinum Mall is a five minute walk from the hotel. An added bonus for the travelers would be the easy accessibility of the business district.
