Great location, great facilities, great staff, swim up bar in the pool in garden surroundings and great margaritas in every bar - what more could you ask for.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MaverickMRAW No longer an Amazing BKK hotel
This hotel used to be special and unique Bangkok hotel. Over the passing years newer hotels have sprung up all over town while the Royal Orchid has become rather staid and tired. The room, while clean was bland and basic, with noticeable wear and tear of the furniture. Room service menu missing pages and falling apart.
Breakfast buffet was a large affair, but impersonal and felt more like a large cafeteria and staff, while smiling seemed overworked and rushed.
Public areas were fine but just bland and unmemorable. Even the pool area in Portuguese Embassy garden seemed tired.
Location wise, its a bit to far to walk to to Silom area, but the shuttle boat to the BTS train stain was a nice touch.
I feel Starwood are targeting this property more towards tour groups as they have better located business hotels in BKK.
Overall, just found this once impressive hotel has become rather bland.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SivH Great hotel along the river
Have stayed at this hotel for several occasions and it exceeded my expectation every time I stayed. From the very fist day of checking in to a very last day of checking out. Check in staff at the lounge was very friendly and I received an upgrades most, if not all, of each time I visited. Foods at the lounge are decent though wish there could be more selections during the evening cocktail.
The hotel should allow its platinum guests to partake the breakfast at its main restaurant, Feast, too (at the moment only at the lounge). Most of the starwood hotels I stayed are giving their guests an option to have breakfast at their main restaurants other than at the lounge (Plaza Athenee, Le Meridien, St Regis and Sheraton Grande) My most recent stay at The Westin Grande Sukhumvit now giving the option of restaurant breakfast for its platinum guest too. I hope this will soon change in the future.
Overall Royal Orchid Sheraton is really a great hotel alongside the river. It has been and will always be my main hotel over the forthcoming stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PJH76 Overall experience
OK...this hotel has good things and bad. It is alongside the river which makes it good, and is adjacent to a small mall and river side set of bars. On the other hand the streets in the area are part of the old city and a little depressing to see.
The hotel facilities are fine and staff work hard to make your experience enjoyable. Drinks in the bar a bit expensive, making it very worthwhile to book into the club floor rooms

Rated 5 out of 5 by Perth2014 Great to stay with a family
This is the third year that we have stayed at the sheraton towers and it never fails to disappoint.
The rooms were spotless with the beds being turned down every day, which meant the bathroom was also cleaned twice a day.
The laundry service was impeccable and with 3 pieces of laundry per person included in the room price, meant we had little laundry to do on our return home - a real bonus!
The pool is my daughters favourite part of the hotel and spent every minute she could in it. It was clean and enjoyed by all the family.
The lounge is not used much by families but an area we enjoy. The girls who work there really look after you and our daughter was known very well by them all and looked after accordingly.
The proximity to the sky train is a bonus and the boat that takes you there leaves every half hour. The cold towels and water on your return are always well received.
A great holiday as always and would highly recommend.

From check in to check out this hotel delivers. We upgraded to the Towers this was a great idea the extras you get are worth the cost.. The staff couldn't have been more helpful or professional. We will be returning to this hotel.

The staff are attentive and knew exactly how I wanted my coffee. If you want a luxurious relaxing holiday ....stay at this hotel.
Forgot to mention the gym......... state of the art equipment spotlessly maintained and friendly helpful gym staff.:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Helmut2911 This hotel provides perfect staff: professional, friendly, caring for their guests
Everything is clean and in best condition, the staff is absolutely perfect.
Rooms are clean and very comfortable.
There are only 2 things, which have disturbed me a little bit:
1. No free WIFI in the room. For me free WIFI must be standard in a top hotel. It is not because of the charged amount (increase room rates a little bit), but it doesn't give me a professional impression.
2. Breakfast could provide more variety of fresh fruit

Rated 5 out of 5 by CatSheriff Sheraton Bangkok is a jewel of a hotel
Situated right on the river, we had a fantastic view from our room, which was large & roomy -- a real delight. The staff was always courteous & helpful. We were able to book excellent tours right in the hotel. The dining selections were excellent & varied. And, when needed, room service was prompt and the food still hot.

Rated 1 out of 5 by UnhappyinBangkok This Hotel is hemorrhaging due to low occupancy and is desperately cutting costs
This was my second visit to the Royal Orchard Sheraton Hotel Bangkok this year, The first time was in March 2014 - it was a truly remarkable and wonderful time.
Sadly a visit it July 2014 revealed that the hotel is suffering along with other Bangkok Hotels with low occupancy. Understandably floors are closed down. However, rather than close some of the F&B outlets these all remain open and serve sustandard food, reheated, reconsituted food and in many cases microwaved food in order to cut costs.
Most fustratingly the only way to provide feedback to the F&B team is via a scanned process which I had no way of accessing let alone understand how to use.
They are desperate to cut costs and don't really want to know the impact this is causing on the guest experience.
By all means stay at the property - brown bag your meals or try the really friendly steeet stalls outside the hotel entrance.
One final point on their F&B - how hard is it to serve a sub standard buffet breakfast? Really? Check into the Royal Orchard Sheraton Hotel - they appear to have perfected the art.

Wifi not free in room is not right in 2014. Please have staff stop feeding pigeons near the lower pool. These birds are filthy and carry disease and are drinking and bathing in the pool and shedding their feathers, yuck. Otherwise a near perfect option at this resort.

My husband and I love this hotel. We up graded to the Club room and really got value for money. Great river view! the bed was comfortable and the room was cleaned well every day day. The staff in the Lounge bar were great, always friendly and fantastic service. Very good location. The hotel shuttle boat is a great service taking you to central pier from there you can catch the sky train.

I stayed at the Royal Orchid Sheraton for days for work. The location was excellent: on the river and I could use the river ferries easily. The gymnasium is first class - large, with plenty of machines and weights, and the bonus is being open 24 hours. Two pools are lovely with the main pool long enough for doing laps. All the exercise was necessary since the breakfast is very extensive. Lovely cappucino included in the breakfast.
