Grand dame of Bangkok serves up sleek design and tantalizing city views without the chain-hotel feel
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.
