Not the first time to Bangkok, but it was our first visit to the Intercontinental here. We opted for a club level room, and were very happy with room and the benefits that come with it.
As has already been mentioned many times, the location of the hotel is nice and central (if that's where you want), with ample shopping/dining options within walking distance, plus easy access to the MTR right outside the hotel.
Also mentioned by others, yes the pool area is small for the size of the hotel, but we must have been lucky as we didn't experience any over crowding. Pool/bar staff were very friendly and efficient.
The club area was impressive, along with the benefits, which include complimentary breakfast, all day light refreshments, high tea, and cocktail hour. Club Staff were great, even those we experienced in the lobby bar, breakfast area, and evening restaurant. Breakfast downstairs was a bit chaotic due to so many guests, but opting to dine in the club lounge was a better alternative.
Both occasions we needed a taxi from the hotel, the concierge were happy to arrange the transport and confirm with the driver of our destination and also the price BEFORE we got in the taxi, and gave us a card with the details. Great service.
Also stayed at the Millenium Hilton on this same trip, but preferred this location over the Hilton.
