The W Bangkok soft opened recently. The new property is housed in a 31-floor contemporary glass tower connected to a century-old building that once housed the Russian Embassy, and it will reopen as part of the hotel in March and contain the property’s signature restaurant. The hotel is on Embassy Row at the intersection of Sathorn and Narathiwas Roads with easy access to the Skytrain.
W Bangkok has 407 guestrooms and suites, including 10 Marvelous Suites, four Duplex Suites, a Wow Suite and the W brand’s signature Extreme Wow Suite. Each room has been fitted with padded platform beds; high-speed wired and wireless internet; flat-screen 40-inch LED TVs; and “jack pack stations” with a sound bar system and docking station for audio and video players.

W Bangkok offers more than 1,000 sqm of meeting and event space, featuring seven meeting rooms and an outdoor space outfitted with adaptable conference furniture and AV equipment. The hotel’s one-of-a-kind 425-square-metre theatre-style Great Room has nine-meter ceilings equipped with LED lighting.
W Bangkok is the 44th W hotel globally, its eighth the Asia Pacific, and the second in Thailand following the 2010 opening of W Retreat & Spa Koh Samui.
“Bangkok is a global hub for jetsetters, business people, fashionistas, and more. W Bangkok is a perfect match,” said Chris Delaney, chairman of Golden Land, Thailand’s leading property development firm and part-owner of the property.
W Hotels also recently opened a property in Sentosa, Singapore (see here).
