Rated 4 out of 5 by Coxy Good location and views from the Club lounge
Upon check, as a Platinum member I was upgraded to a junior suite overlooking the river. The room was nice but nothing special. It is nice to have a lounge room and separate bathroom.
The 27th floor lounge was the highlight of the hotel with wonderful sweeping views up both directions of the river. The breakfast served in the lounge was very good. Happy hour is also table service rather than a make your own.
The lifts can be a little confusing as there are two sets and if you are in one you have to get out and swap on the 17th floor.
Would I stay there again?
Positives: location, platinum recognition, suites, Club lounge, its continental breakfast and sweeping views.
Negatives: lifts, the shopping plaza next door (I am still scratching my head), just felt a little impersonal

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mick49 Great feel to this hotel.
Although I live in Bangkok I spend much time traveling and staying in hotels due to work. It is the first time I have stayed at the Royal Orchid Sheraton and I found the hotel just had a great feel to it. Executive suite room was excellent. Comparing with other hotels in the same price range I have to say this is one of the best hotels I have stayed in. Staff were great, food was nice, it delivered what was expected for a hotel of this quality. It is rare for me not to find negatives but in this case I have to say there was little to complain about. Will stay here again for sure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tokiogaijin Great food in exec lounge
I have stayed at a number of Sheraton's throughout asia and this exec lounge had the best tea time and best evening cocktail/food out of all of them. You can enjoy a full dinner in the exec lounge.
I was upgraded to a suite with amazing views. I believe this hotel has a number of suites as many of the platinum people i met were upgraded to suites.
90% of the staff were great. A few were so so.
My only recommendation to the hotel would be to have a no-children policy for their terrace pool. The hotel has two pools and I have seen other Sheratons with two pools reserve one pool just for adults. (sheraton honolulu). The garden pool was huge and had a number of children really enjoying themselves. The terrace pool is 3 meters deep and a perfect size and shape for lap swimming (many gym members use this pool to swim laps as well). But they had children standing around playing with beachballs and making it difficult to swim. Also it would be nice to have a no smoking pool/section at the pool. Lots of people smoking at the pool so difficult to relax with all the smoke.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Johnnyrob1 Last of 3 stays
This was the last of 3 separate stays during our travel throughout SE Asia plus we are celebrating our 30th anniversary. The staff must this stay positively the best. Staff members in the Club lounge, Maneerat who helped me arrange flowers for my wife and many many thanks go to Nimit who consistently helped us throughout our 3 stays, even contacting me on his day off to ensure we had everything we needed. It was Nimit who we had met 4 years earlier during our stay who demonstrated such care and hospitality that when we knew we were coming back to Bangkok we had to stay at the Sheraton. Thank you Nimit for once again making my family feel so welcome and cared for!

Rated 4 out of 5 by LaguLagu14 Love the River Location and Access
I very much enjoyed staying at Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel Bangkok on the river. Particularly loved being able to watch the activities on the water. I was at a conference and food was great both in terms of range and taste, and the option of dining inside or out added further interest to each meal. Service was also excellent. Lift waits were long at times.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jasontan3 Treated fairly
All to be serve equally, your staffs have most of the time treated the white's as a priority. Served them with a gentle, polite and cheerful smile which is not wrong but not to Chinese. Previously, I have terminated one of membership in one of the club because of this. Hope this delivers clearly to your staff.
This is a feedback. Thank you

Rated 4 out of 5 by Andrew44 The right place in Bangkok?
One of the biggest question most people ask about staying in Bangkok is what area to stay in. The Royal Orchid I would maybe class as a little out of the centre of the life and soul of the city, but that can have it's advantages.... Firstly it's a quieter place to relax, but still has the constant flow of life on the river with canal boats, barges, pleasure boats & ferrys constantly passing by as you sit by the pool or riverside restaurants.
If you want to get to the tourist attractions or shopping malls, its easy enough to have concierge arrange a taxi for you or take the Hotels own free boat ferry to the BTS Skytrain terminal less than 10 mins away. There is also the public riverboat ferrys by the Riverside shopping centre next door taking you to other parts of the city for a very small fee.
The hotel itself is very efficiently run but maybe lacks the personal touch many Thai owned hotels give... I stayed in several hotels in the space of 3 weeks many offer you cold flannels and/or cold drinks upon your arrival to give you relief from the humid heat from outside. This is only a minor detail, but other areas this hotel excels in.
You are very promptly dealt with by either reception or concierge in a very friendly manner, problems are very quickly dealt with... a few times my door/lift key card stopped working and was changed within minutes.
The bars and restaurants are of a high quality with friendly and attentive staff. The all you can eat Buffet at Feast restaurant is a must try, just the starter buffet can fill you and if you can get to the end there is the 'as much as you can eat' dessert bar.
There are 2 different pools that are spacious and relaxing... one even has peacocks in its vicinity!
The rooms are spacious and well equipped ... even having filter coffee (decaff as well) an added bonus. every room has a view of the river.
I stayed a total of 3 different times during my time in Thailand, each time the hotel stored my luggage free of charge in between my stays.
On leaving the hotel for the final time I had booked a car to take me to the airport, that morning I was told my transport had been upgraded.... so I left in a bit more style!!!
Take my advice, sign up for the SPG (Starwood prefered Guest) It DOES give you extra benefits when staying there.
