Rated 5 out of 5 by Shibb Great location, staff, happy hour and more
I just returned from a 2 week stay in Bangkok, where I hopped across several different hotels, both brands and chains. This location had my favorite breakfast of any, bar none. Everyday some delicious Thai treats, plus all of the standards, great ham, etc. I would probably put this hotel as the best value of any I visited.
The Happy Hour in the Beer vault for Platinum members was also outstanding, again with a very friendly staff. The only things I would say could be improved would be longer pool hours in the evening, so I didn't have to choose between an evening swim and happy hour, and a bit more modern equipment in the fitness center.
thanks to the people of the Four Points for making my trip a great one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Flyer67 Nice place for a good price
Spending a night there with my partner, as we had to go to the airport early next day and given that traffic would be light on a public holiday I chose this hotel instead of a hotel near the airport. Was really worth it: clean and comfortable rooms, friendly service and good location. We really liked it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peter888 Best Room Design
The best room design comparing with hotels I have stayed (Grande, Centara, Hard Rock (Singapore), Sands (Singapore) and many more. Very comfortable beds and one can watch TV programmes at a reasonable distance and need not watch a very small TV reflection in many hotels. One can close the doors from one side of the tub as well as the other side from the entrance and will not disturb others sleeping or when you want some privacy.
Room service is excellent not to mention the concierge. A new hotel and is accessible by skytrain via airport express.
Must stay here aain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Paul83 Watch out for Taxis
Stayed at the hotel last week. All went great until the end! I asked the concierge to get us a taxi to the airport. He seemed to wave two taxis by before flagging a certain taxi. This guy was the worst taxi driver! He was abusive when we asked him to switch on the meter. Then he drove at breakneck speed (140km/hr) in and out of traffic all the way to the airport. At the tolls he never returned any change. Just be careful the concierge does not have a deal with local taxi drivers and I would suggest that the meter is turned on BEFORE the cab sets off from the hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by calvin nice place, good location
Staff are friendly and helpful. I have always had good experience with SPG properties and this was no exception. I however have 2 comments;
1. the hotel was booked out when I arrived (thankfully I had booked in advance) and all they had were smoking rooms (I am a non smoker). Though I do not really mind, it would help if the hotel had some air freshers in the room to reduce or eliminate the smoke smell.
2. during breakfast, I had noticed the restaurant staff spraying some sort of chemical on the tables before wiping them. I am totally fine with this practice except, there were uncovered milk jugs on every table (for the coffee/tea), was thinking it would be a good idea to cover them before spraying as it could contaminate the milk.

Rated 3 out of 5 by James99 Great Hotel but avoid the Pool Wing.
I stay at the Sheraton 4Points Sukhumvit 4-5 times a year and generally find that it meets or exceeds my expectations. This time I received a room in the "Pool Wing" for the first time. It was well-kept and clean.
However, at night it was a pure noise fest. I don't know if it was being on the floor below the rooftop or poor noise insulation but the noise was such that it was the first time I needed ear plugs to sleep in this hotel.
With that said, I've always found the Garden wing to be quiet and comfortable.
Also detracting from higher marks this time is the fact that the temporary charges placed by the hotel on my credit card, after having paid my account in full wiith cash, are still there even three days+ after checking out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TomL Very good service
All of the staff, from the doorman to the front desk to the restaurant, were unfailingly friendly, polite, and helpful. Although I hadn't stayed there for 6 months, they remembered me. The hotel is well-maintained and within easy walking distance of a Skytrain station. The buffet breakfast is very good. Not quite as good as the Le Meridian, but better than the Westin.
My only suggestion is that when the rooms are cleaned after a guest departs, the cleaner should check the clock by the bed to be sure that the alarm is not set. Mine went off at 4 AM.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vince13 This hotel met & exceeded our expectations.
From the welcoming reception, to the attentive bell hops, to the beautifully appointed rooms and great recreation, food and bar service, your hotel met or exceeded our expectations. We had the opportunity to experience two different stays in your hotel during our trip to Thailand over this past month. We loved Bangkok and found the Four Point to be a great anchor to operate from. Our only complaint was having to pay extra for internet connection in our room. This should be part of the package. Next time in Bangkok we will visit you again.

Very close to MRT and BTS and a modern medium size shopping Mall named Terminal 21. Many eateries around hotel, local and international. Modern and spacious room. Breakfast quality could have been better. i went there two occasion within 1 week and none the occasion i was upgraded given the reason our better rooms / suites are full but i seriously doubt so because the hotel seems empty. I would appreciate an honest policy e.g. our hotel policy does not upgrade to suite room but only a better floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fifi Hotel that makes me feel like home
I started staying in this hotel since Aug last year, for business trip. A nice, cosy hotel with great location. On my recent visit in Mar this year, I was greeted by staff upon arrival, by "Welcome AGAIN"! It was indeed a pleasant surprise. I arrived at 10am, not expecting to be able to check-in that early, but was given an upgrade and I was comfortably in my room before 10.30am. I took a quick lunch at the restuarant on ground level and the manager, name Prueng greeted me, saying welcome again. The service is commendable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Xintiandi Value for money, good location
Location is excellent, if you want Sukhimvit Road. It's even better, in that it is a little way down a side street, and is therefore quieter.
In previous visits to Bangkok my wife and I have stayed at 4 different 5 star hotels (when I wasn't paying the bill myself!), and value for money this beats them all. The room was excellent, and the staff are very friendly yet very professional.
We didn't use the pool, but the location on the roof, with a bar, makes it as good as any 5 star hotel. I'll try it on my next visit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Derek1980 Horrid, avoid at all cost
1) Fitness centre located in pool wing, thus all garden wing guest must commute and transfer via the main lobby.
2) Rooms practically do not have any view whatsoever, think next door buildings as your view.
3) Smoking room smells of rancid old mouldy stench. Has the management considered some form air freshner?
4) "Backdoor access" unkempt and totally in a state of distraught! 5) management should also source another drinking water, "salty" tasting Singha.
And now the seriously wrong. I checked in earlier today at noon but the room wasn't ready and was given a temporary room 201 which was an access room or in ither words a "handicap" room! Tell take signs of its features speak so loudly and obviously it is never a good "sign" or customary to give a able bodied guest a handicap room. Next the room was also non-smoking though I asked for one, thus I merely placed my bags in there and asked for them to move my bags (2 cabin bags and a hand carry) to my actual room when it was ready. It would have been better to just offer me a place to keep my things I believe.
I only returned to the hotel at approximately 6:30pm and immediately returned the old key and gotten my new one. But upon entering room I discovered that the my bags were still not moved.
I had initially intended to take a quick shower and head out again to Silom thus quickly made the call to Guest Service at approximately 7pm for the moving of my bags.
I waited for over 20 to 25 mins but still no news, considering that your staff may be busy I decided to pick up the bags myself.
What infuriated me the most was that 2 conceirge staff as well as 2 FO staff were basically free and doing nothing! Hmmmmmm...Fine all I has to do was move singlehandedly 2 cabin bags and 1 hand carry from the second floor to the third floor after I got the key for the old room from the lobby. Time wasted.
I have no idea if there was any misunderstanding between GUEST SERVICE and conceirge but it is definitely not an excuse of "miscommunication" as the excuse laid out by your duty manager. Miscommunication occurs with responsibility largely shouldered by the initiator, but I would hardly think my spoken language is that difficult to understand.
I was further insulted by a "so what do you want? Can I give you a free breakfast?" Are you seriously kidding me with this form of service recovery?
I asked for Tanaka Mari who had been asked by Jesselyn to look after my reservation etc. And guess what the upgrade was also for a mere room only no benefits whatsoever and now I am offered a Starpoint equivalent of 1500 worth of "breakfast" now?
For your nec info. It is one disappointment after another, and maybe I shouldn't have thrown this is supposed service recovery upgrade out the window.
But a supposed suite in fourpoints coupled with the bad service attitude makes this stay a horrendous experience.
Only plus points are some exceptional staff in the establishment:
1) Ambar - staff Bum and Pek are fantabulous! Knowledgable of SPG offerings redemptions and discounts. Warm friendly and an epitome of grace and absolutely a great place to chill with such great staff.
2) the front office reception lady that checked me in on the 10th. As well as Pong who checked me in today are all very good! Extremely service oriented and amiable, friendly approachable and knowledgable.
Other than that...

Rated 4 out of 5 by parthajd fantastic location
Although centrally located, its not in the middle of chaos. The hotel provides a great pool side bar, fairly good gym and very very comfortable room, with great quality bed/linen, open bathroom with tub and is of a certain level of superior quality. Although haven't used frequently, the round the clock room service was quite good quality food too. Staff is great, as usual and they drop you off to nearby locations in their branded tuktuk.
Overall a great experience and I am a frequent visitor to this property.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Chris78 Lackluster performance...
There are numerous SPG properties in Bangkok. Each has their charms. I decided to visit the Sheraton 4 points.
I read the reviews and it seemed to have many positives.
1. Location is good.
2. Staff are friendly and are obliging (this has been fairly consistent at all SPG Bangkok properties).
Areas of improvement:
1. Platinum benefits gone awry
a. I was given 3 choices for my amenities - local gift, breakfast or the 250 points. I was interested in what the local gift was but was told there were none left. Tad disappointing. Perhaps staff can be taught to set expectations. If you don't have a welcome gift. Don't tell the customer that you can choose it.
b. I appreciate any upgrade is a kind gesture of the hotel to customer loyalty. Given this was my first visit I realized I might not be given an upgrade but nevertheless I was hopeful given there were suites available on the internet for sale (even post checking-in), I was told the hotel was not busy and I checked in around 5pm. Didn't get one and was given a standard clean, modern room.
However, upon entering the room I found I could hear external sounds of building works and street traffic. As I looked at the window door I immediately knew why. The top hinge was broken which prevented the door from closing properly and hence sound proofing. I called to ask for a room change citing the noise. I was told they would look into it. I received a call later informing me security had looked into it but could not find the noise and they would send someone up to my room to check the noise. I must say I did not need a 3rd party to verify this.
I appreciate the move into a corner room which was much larger and perhaps wished I had been given this room at the outset.
c. Perhaps I didn't hear but I was also uninformed about the complimentary Platinum Happy Hour at check-in. I called Guest Services to ask if there was a club floor at 6.30pm and was only then told about the Happy Hour.
A lovely little bar. There was a selection of 3 snacks but none had information as to what they were. Added to that, it's quite dark in the bar and the food area is not well lit so it's hard to see what the food is.
2. Room cleanliness
Finding hair in the bath tub and on the shower wall that isn't yours in never a joy. Yes it's easy to clean and wash away but really?
The shower wall is also chipped (rough edge that could cut) and the floor has a small build up of dirt and the metal furnishings display rust.
One of the bed's sheeting displayed 3 large black/brown marks.
3. Noise in the corridors
Don't be put off when walking down the corridor and you're able to hear babies crying from inside the rooms you are passing. I was told you can't hear such noise from inside the rooms only in the corridors.
4. Hallway scent machines
On my floor there was an air freshening machine except it was clearly unplugged and not in use. If so it could have been removed.
Take away: As an SPG member you have many choices here in Bangkok.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ronmiller997 Very Good Value
Four Points by Sheraton Bangkok, Sukhumvit 15 is a very good value. As a SPG Gold I used points to book it. The physical property and excellent staff make it an good choice to make. I choose the in room internet as It would of been 450 baht ( approx $15 USA ) otherwise as my SPG benefit. The local gift amenity was still sent to me, a very delicious candy.Its in a good shopping( Terminal 21 ) and dining location.The only negative is the bathroom vanity as the tap spout barely crosses the basin.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Liew Benefits - Horrible
This is probably the worse Four Points Hotel benefits and the most hostile senior management team I ever have seen. Non of the management team bother their guest at all. I am beginning to feel that this hotel cares more for profits than their guest. This is sad indeed and I get very warm reception from GM of the other Four Points Hotel but not in Bangkok despite I have been coming back since time and again. I am back because of the good staff but definitely not the management team.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Knight Mixed feelings after 3 visits
The hotel is nice and clean but suffers from lack of SPG recognition I would like to love this hotel as its very good value for money and in quite a good location.
I have stayed three times and never asked for room UPG and have been given rooms that are the smallest in the world to very noisy and even a inter -connecting room on my last visit
The hotel is good if you do not belong to SPG as you will not be expecting any better ...
I will try the hotel again maybe it will be 4 th time lucky

Rated 5 out of 5 by Razzou 5 Stars Indeed - Again
This is my second stay and it was every bit as good as the first; I ended up extending 3 nights.
SPG recognition gave me, amongst other things, happy hour (in fact 2 hours) at Beer Vault - great cocktails. Staff arranged, as before, reliable & efficient transportation at reasonable cost - in fact, they often recommended the best mode of transportation and drove me by the hotel's Tuk Tuk when the destination was close.
A well-managed hotel; I saw the GM once busy with staff behind the reception. And I'm most impressed with the courteous supervisor (the Tall Blond we named her) who, without fail, made every night the rounds amongst customers during Happy Hour at the Beer Vault, checked arrangements, directed staff and participated in service.
KEEP IT UP! No doubt I'll choose the hotel again.

I have stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions and have no hesitation in recommending it to business and vacation visitors alike. Well designed, comfortable rooms; well trained and friendly staff and an excellent bar on the ground floor. Jesselyn Koh has done a great job with the hotel and should be commended for her efforts. If I was being really picky I would say the main restaurant has room for improvement but that is not to say its poor it just needs some tweeking.

This is my 5th stay here in the 2 years this hotel has been open. Quite disappointed this time.
-Toilet had chewing gum and some stuff in it when i checked in - yuck!
-I called the guest service multiple times and they did not respond - had to call again until things were done: eg. to check on my complimentary wifi as a SPG Gold; bring extra shower gel
-There is no shoe polish/mit anymore and the attendants with the cleaning trolleys didn't have any and couldn't help!? Cost cutting?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mike71 Nice Place to Stay...
This was the first time that I have stayed at a Four Points hotel and have to admit, at first i was not sure if I wanted to stay. However, after staying at this Four Points hotel I will certainly consider this brand again.
The staff were exceptionally nice and the room and hotel overall were good. However, the room is quite large, but the shower area is rather small. For such a spacious room there could have been more thought into making some of that room available for the shower.
