Don’t let the cold, gray granite exterior of InterContinental Bangkok deceive you; beyond it’s hard exterior lies a comfortable, luxurious setting. Beyond the enormous crystal chandelier that hangs from the lobby ceiling, everything else in the hotel is swathed in subtle gray tones, exuding a private-club feel. Not forgetting its Southeast Asian roots, the hotel has peppered its public spaces and rooms with classic Thai artwork that blends immaculately with the elegant ambiance.
Bed and Bath
The hotels’ 420 rooms are splashed in light grey accents and earth tones, featuring carpeted flooring and cushy upholstered paneling. Aesthetics aside, you’ll appreciate the practicality of the room’s amenities, be it the curved lounger perfect for sipping a sundowner with a view, or the glass-topped desk and rolling leather chair when it comes to business. Ask for a room on a high floor, as the oversize windows open up to a bird’s eye view of Bangkok’s skyline. Bathrooms — spa-like sanctuaries with marble tiled flooring, glass-enclosed rain showers, and shiny bath tubs — are equally impressive.
InterContinental Bangkok provides guests with five in-house dining options – from high tea at the vintage-inspired Balcony Lounge to Bangkok’s best steak at Fireplace Grill to famous dim sum at Summer Palace. The Humidor, draped in brown leather, teak walls and black-and-white portraits, is a hot spot to enjoy some of the world’s best cigars. And designed with Southeast Asian flair, Spa InterContinental focuses on recharging guests with traditional Thai treatments in a serene setting.
In the Area
With its central location, the hotel stands at the crossroads of the city’s major shopping centers, temples and food streets. Start a visit with an early-morning walk to Wat Pratumwanaram to give the monks food offerings or head to the famous Erawan Shrine, known for bringing good luck and fortune. For a refreshing experience, stroll over to Lumpini Park, Bangkok’s largest public park and get away from the raucous traffic and crowds. To kick back and indulge in Bangkok’s cosmopolitan vibes, the Skywall connects you directly to many of the city’s biggest department stores, such as Siam Square, Central World and Siam Paragon.
How to Get There
Staff: Helpful and friendly
Room: spacious, clean but the tub are not so modern.
Only one thing I was not happy ( just only 1), I had to have a shower at 10:45 PM and the water was not warm enough. The other day everything was good.
We have Club benefits with 3 pressing items/ stay ( which should be more as 3 of us), executive lounge for breakfast and dinner and all day drinks and nuts. We really enjoyed the Club benefits.
The breakfast is wide range of selection.
The lobby is wide and impressive. The pool view is great but the pool size is a bit small.
The location is great as the BTS is just outside the door.
All in all, we are happy and hope we can come back!
I stayed in the club room of this beautiful hotel which is centrally located. The staff were extremely good and the good was excellent.
The club lounge was very comfortable, beautiful and relaxing. The food was with wide variety and good presentation
Decided to revisit InterContinental Bangkok after 10 months from my previous stay.
The hotel went through its last refurb ten years ago. I know because I happened to stay at the hotel when it started. It needs one again as the hardware is starting to look dates especially the bathrooms which they didn't touch last time around.
Basically all the rooms including club ones are identical including corner suites of which they sell some with club access and others without. There is no difference other than service packet included.
The service in the club is generally good.
The standard rooms are not worth the price InterContinental asks considering all the competition in the city.
