Bottom Line

With 378 modern, apartment-style rooms and a convenient location above one of Bangkok's luxury malls, with covered access to the sky train, the Emporium Suites by Chatrium is a central, luxurious choice. The high-end chain suites-hotel -- each room has a kitchen and dining area -- has a restaurant with city views, as well as a rooftop pool set amid tropical gardens. The complex is home to one of Thailand's top spas, and the gym comes equipped with top-of-the-line equipment, a locker room, and steam rooms. The number of guests can be an issue as the breakfast area can get crowded and securing a lounge chair around the pool can be a challenge, but, otherwise, the spacious suites are low-key and elegant, and the overall experience is a relaxing one. Business travelers may want to compare it with the Crowne Plaza Bangkok Lumpini Park, an upscale hotel with club rooms that include lots of nice perks.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

This modern, luxurious suites-hotel -- attached to an upscale shopping mall -- attracts families and business travelers.

Attached to the Emporium -- a luxury mall with stores like Prada, Hermès, and Louis Vuitton -- the Emporium Suites by Chatrium extends the shopping center's high-end experience into its decor and atmosphere. Decked out with cream and purple sofas and chairs in geometric, mid-century-inspired styles, the elegant lobby lounge is a casual spot to meet friends and colleagues over snacks and cocktails. Against a backdrop of panoramic city views, the large restaurant with dramatic green and purple decor is busy at all hours; the buffet breakfast can get especially crowded. In the large gym, treadmills look out onto lush tropical foliage through a wall of windows. The outdoor rooftop pool is surrounded by manicured gardens of palms and tropical foliage; the pool bar and the surrounding loungers can get busy, with loungers in short supply. Thanks to its location and all-suites accommodations, the hotel attracts a range of guests, from families to business travelers.
