Rated 3 out of 5 by SINK Decent hotel, great location, but poor SPG recognition
Although I have rated this Westin relatively high, this location lacks the SPG platinum recognition. At other SPG hotels in Bangkok, breakfast in the restaurant is standard. Upgrade to suites is basically impossible at this location. In the past, I have been given a slightly larger corner room (xx25) on high floors, but my two most recent stays, just an regular "executive" club access room on a different floor from the club lounge. Although the club lounge is decent, it is no way spectacular compared to other club lounges in Asia.
Had this hotel not right on the Sukhumvit near Asoke and the other SPG across the street been a bit more affordable, I would never of stayed at this place. Just too many great hotels in Bangkok.
Wifi is way too slow or not available (not able to connect).

Rated 4 out of 5 by Flood Slight flooding in the shower room
First of all, staff service is always excellent and met expectations.
1) For such a spacious room, the bath room is a rather cramped area; The toilet near the front-door was more spacious than it; 2) The shower room water does not drained well, after a shower, soap waters were "flooding" the shower room. It was impossible to step out of the shower room without stepping on these soap water; 3) There are not enough lightings in or around the pool, it is too dim when one is swimming at night.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mukmuk The hotel needs improvement
I stayed there for 3 days recently and my experience was less then satisfactory.
a) The shower is dirty and very 3rd world. The water pressure from the shower head is poor
b) Getting a taxi OR a hotel driver to come to the front reception on time is impossible. I had pre-booked a driver on a few occassions and it takes forever for them to reach the front driveway despite pre-booking for a specific time.
Other then that the hotel is ok. Staff are nice and try their best to help.

Rated 4 out of 5 Very Comportable but very Noisy
I stayed during Christmas..
Westin hotel is located front of Terminal 21..
My stay season was timing for parties...So terminal 21's hotel garden had a parties everynight. But..they are not professional singer or professional artist...So they made very big noise until midnight..
The problem was hotel rooms has no soundproof window.. I had to endure their song(almost noise).
Other thing was perfect, but every night nightmare was started...I could'n get a sleep until midnight..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shannon31 The idea,hotel
Staying at The Westin Grande Sukhumvit Bangkok, was the right decision. The location is perfect, right in the hub of the city.
The highly efficient sky train at exit 21 takes you right into a world class multi level shopping centre, where the upstairs food court is gourmet and elegant yet casual dining.. Only a 2 minute walk back to the Westin and time to relax at the gorgeous bar, which is classy yet cosy. This is my preferred choice of hotel when ever I am traveling .

I have stayed at the Westin on a regular basis for 7 years. I have always thought of this hotel as one of my favorites. However this trip as the hotel was very busy standards have dropped. I gues this maybe down to management not having enough staff on duty. Also I am not sure what they have done to the pool but its a real mess since so called "renovation" and needs to be re worked. I tip for management... dont forget to take care of your regulars even when you are busy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JuhaP Is it 5 star?
At this level I am not used to pay extras for things like internet connection. That is so very 90's. Breakfast should also be included, not an additional extra.

Rated 3 out of 5 by HNY2013 This hotel needs a little refurbishing
The air conditioner temperature is not adjustable. Either on or off only.
The water temperature suddenly turns really hot while showering and it delayed to turn back cold. Almost got burnt from the shower.
When I first got into the room, the carpet smell is very strong and not very pleasant.
Pool is a little small to cater for so many hotel guests.
Otherwise the overall hotel is good location, good services, and really heavenly bed so comfortable for sleeping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Club2430 It only gets better
Another stay in my favourite city hotel and with transfer times to the airport as low as 40 minutes, I consider this an airport hotel as well.
What I really love about this hotel is the more I stay, the better it gets. The latest benefit the hotel offers, is if you forget your running gear, don't worry, a fresh set of everything needed, including running shoes, will be provided. I took advantage if this new service, when my running shoes I keep in BKK caused me one too many blisters.. I was loaned a pair of New balance Shoes and after only a days rest, was back up and running a 30km route....
Don't be shy to ask for special food requests. I am generally in BKK for around 10 - 12 days and never get bored with the fabulous food, created by the wonderful Westin chefs.
All in all a perfect and faultless stay. Oh... the lift doors from ground floor to level 7, take a little too long to close..... but hey, do I really care about that..... :)
Many thanks to the GM for being at the helm and steering this hotel to such very high standards.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by JudeC Westin Grande Sukhumvit Bangkok Review
The overall staff service level is excellent especially the SPG recognition by the housekeeping staff who went out of the way to greet me "Happy Birthday" as I was walking out of my room and the personalized birthday cake and greeting card. The housekeeping staff also made animal figures using the towel which brighten anyone after a long day. The location is great as it is next to Terminal 21 that gives access to shopping and great food.

We stayed at this hotel for one week at this hotel. It is absolutely perfect location. The staff is superior. Having ownership of several major hotels in USA, i can say this one is excellent. I wish we have such a caring crew. Very good food. every one willing to do their best. Most accommodating. The location is one of the best in town. Room size is large and with all modern amenities. Highly recommend this property.

Rated 3 out of 5 by E007 Disappointed with the internet facilicate
The attitude of staffs in your hotel is excellent. However, there would be charges for the internet facilicate at room is unacceptable. Nowaday, even the 3 stars hotel will also provide free wifi service. I just cannot believe that such a good quality hotel will make charges for such a tiny little services. I really think that your hotel may need to think throughfully in this matter. Hope you will consider my suggestion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovetravelling80 Great stay
Great hotel in a great location in Sukhumvit. BTS and MRT is just around the corner, so can easily go everywhere in Bangkok.
I had a good rate when I made the booking, and before checking in I was given av offer for an upgrade to a executive room for 1500 baht per day including access to the club lounge. The room is big and looked modern, but I never really liked carpet on the floor, as it feels dirty. I were given late checkout until 4pm, and could stay in the cloub lounge and enjoy the happy hour + the pool area until I left the hotel around 8pm. I really appreciated that. Overall the staff was very good at this hotel, but some lacked attention towards the guests. Pool area is nice, but drinks and food is very expensive and they add service charge and government tax to your bill (17.7%). Breakfast was ok. Will definately stay here again if I can find similar rates.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CTeo A pleasant stay @ Westin Bangkok
Love the superb location of the hotel -easy access to skytrain and subway within a couple of minutes' walk, very convenient location for shopping and food.
Hotel room is big and comfortable. Staff that I came across were pleasant and nice. I was pleasantly surprised to come across a Chinese front desk staff who speaks Mandarin!
Buffet breakfast spread is good too. Love having a relaxed breakfast every morning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chhapa Excellent location
The hotel is well located on Sukhumvit, opposite Asok BTS station (Sky train) - the most efficient way of travelling within Bangkok. You have Terminal 21 and Robinson - two adequate malls in the neighborhood in addition to the ubiquitous street bazaar.
Hotel needs to improve on its bathroom amenities and maintenance. Wash basin water flow was slow.
In summary, a good hotel with great location.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ChaChita Very comfortable hotel especially on the executive floor
Me and my family stayed on the executive floor. The staff and service there was excellent.
But only thing I was disappointed was on the check out day my family left early in the morning but I told them that I will be staying there till the check out time but after my family left around 4am I went back to sleep and this staff came to knock on the door ( even I had DO NOT DISTURB sign) and when I open he just said ` Check out?
I was mad since I didn't have enough sleep and that was my chance to finally sleep and I called the concierge or someone to tell that but at the beginning she just insist it wasn't their fault that it was because we called the bell boy to get our luggage so they thought we were checking out...
Anyways besides that everything was perfect. I really loved the breakfast at the main breakfast restaurant.
And the staff(ladies) at the executive lounge was very nice and helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 Nice Room, Pleasant Stay
I was staying on 20/f and the room was well appointed. Bed was very comfy and I personally loved the white tea bath amenities and the JING tea. There was a small issue with the cold water but it was fixed very quickly.
Pool was very well set for a relaxing sunbath and swim, and the gym was well equipped with weights and cardio. Staff was friendly and helpful overall and I enjoyed my stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NewYorkerinHK Convenient location and lovely rooms
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights - the rooms were comfortable and clean; and the housekeeping staff were so efficient! Room service was fast and thoughtful (food came quickly and the staff even called after the meal to ask if they could clear the dishes). We also stayed at the W Bangkok during the same trip and I must report that we enjoyed our time at the Westin more.

This hotel has a good view and the rooms are a decent size. The shower door doesn't shut all the way and it is impossible to shower without flooding half the bathroom. I also got dirty washcloths in my bathroom (there was make up all over 2 of them!).
On the bright side, they have really good restaurants and a great happy hour for SPG platinum. I liked Kisso a lot.

I request a king bed but staff arrange a twin bed instead, after came to reception to change a new room I got a disable room as hotel is quite fully booked, which I am okay with it but staff who check me in also mentioned that it is good that we do not walk you out as I book under starhot rate, it was really surprise to hear that from a starwood staff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by P21H a good location
this hotel is located next to BTS/MRT and a big mall. I was amazed by the convenience when it rained one day by time I walked through the overhead connection bridge worrying about the umbrella, I found myself just abt 4-5 min away from the near hotel sheltered area. A place not too rowdy yet convenient ! Nice staff and service. Very comfortable room and facility

Rated 4 out of 5 by JohnY Good service but jaded facilities
Good service and great location but facility is slightly jaded. Gym attendant was helpful and friendly but gym is congested, equipment is worn and several common equipment e.g. sit up bench are not available. Lift is ok but signs to indicate facilities in the lift is so small and dimly lit that I had problem finding the facility. But overall still a great hotel.

My wife & I were looking for a lovely place to stay and unwind & relax for the few days we had together. We took the plunge, spent a little more than usual and were simply astonished at the excellent treatment we received. It was certainly worth every penny we spent. We'll happily spend more and stay there again.

Next to Asok Sta. and Tops Market Place (at Robinson Department Store), So it is really really conveniently located for business, shopping.
And of course, this hotel has really great hospitality for guests. I stayed this hotel between 14th and 16th, Dec. and had a great time! Next visit to Bangkok, I'll definitely stay here again!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ErikH Mostly good BUT
I was put on a smoking floor without being told that this was the case. My booking was for a non-smoking room.
While in general, the smell of cigarettes in the room wasn't too bad, the stench in the corridors was sometimes quite appalling.
Other than that, I can't fault the hotel. Lovely staff (particularly the room service staff), great facilities.
