Our first stop in Thailand was Bangkok.  After a very long flight we were eager to get to our room and freshen up.  When we pulled up to the front of the Hotel it looked quite regal.  Our check-in was easy and painless which was awesome after our travels.  We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and from start to finish we were well taken care of.  The staff, from the doormen to the maids, were all super friendly and helpful and they all spoke clear english which helped us out.  We received a complimentary beverage at the bar and when we went over to receive it we realized it was a mocktail, albeit a delicious tropical one.  There are restaurants, cafes and stores nearby.  There are several places within walking distance for thai massage.  The pool was awesome.  It felt like we were walking into a pool party, but you could still relax (if that makes any sense?).  It was busy with people having a good time, but you could just chill and no one would bother you.  You could also order food and drinks up there.  The interior of the hotel was nice.  Our room was spacious, clean, modern and comfortable.  This was one of my favorite hotels that we stayed in on our trip.   I felt right at home here.
