BANYAN TREE | Sathorn This immense all-suite skyscraper hidden behind Thai Wah Tower provides the city's most exceptional panoramas, a plethora of trendy dining venues, and a chic spa with spacious suites (including segregated wet-rooms for thalassotherapy treatments). While the brown, gold, and black lobby decor indicates its five-star status, Banyan Tree has a relaxed, resort ambience throughout its public areas, highlighting its claim to provide a slick, urban resort in the city. Pier 59 and Vertigo are just two of its popular, upscale dining options; both come with great views, and the latter offers alfresco dining on the vertiginous roof. Feast on Chinese dim sum galore at Bai Yun, or sip champagne under the stars at Moon Bar. Given its stellar reputation in Asia, the skyscraper hotel is popular with Asian families and tour groups. Mention the Thai Wah building right out in front to ensure your taxi doesn't miss the theatrical torch-lit entrance; it's on a busy one-way highway.

DREAM | Sukhumvit This addition to the burgeoning hotel scene along Sukhumvit Road is at the cutting edge of modern style -- indigo lights in the corridor and under-bed lighting create a true dreamlike aura. Just in case you're not ready to sleep, rooms are also equipped with large plasma TVs and high-speed Internet connections. Dining and drinking choices follow the stylish theme, with innovative dishes on the menu at Flava Restaurant and unusual cocktails in the Flava Lounge. There are also a gym and spa on the premises to help guests keep trim.

PENINSULA | Riverside From its exclusive top-floor lounge, right down to its velveteen lawns at ground level, the Peninsula proves it is as classy as the rest. Located on the western banks of the river in Thonburi, it benefits from more dramatic views up and downstream than its nearby competitor The Mandarin Oriental. Its oversized rooms are luxurious, with all the amenities one expects of a five-star. Rooms reflect the perfect marriage of Thai tradition and high-tech luxury, with wooden paneling, silk wallpaper, and thick carpets. The large marble bathrooms have separate vanity counters and a large tub with a hands-free telephone and TV monitor built in. State-of-the-art business services and great shopping attract leisure and business guests alike, while the Peninsula Spa by ESPA, in a delightfully restored colonial-style house, is the perfect place to unwind. Guests can sign up to be part of the Peninsula Academy, which features Thai cooking classes.

THE METROPOLITAN | Sathorn From the moment you step into the hushed lobby with its minimalist decor, this superhip residence engulfs its guests in a restful mood, despite being hemmed in by a cluster of towers on busy Sathorn Road. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and the rooms, while not huge, are equipped with the latest gadgets such as flatscreen TVs, DVD players, and broadband Internet connections. If you feel frazzled after a hectic day's sightseeing, head for the spa and indulge in the signature COMO Shambala massage. This will leave you lightheaded and ready to partake of the wholesome food on offer at Glow restaurant, which is low in calories but high in taste. At night, enjoy a cocktail in the Met Bar, exclusively for the use of hotel guests and members, where DJs spin eclectic lounge sounds.
 
S 31 HOTEL | Sukhumvit Designed by national artist Dr. Sumej Jumsai to be chic, savvy and sensational, S31 Hotel combines a prime location with supreme comfort and intelligent luxury. The hotel's spacious rooms and suites overlook beautiful city views and are well-equipped to support the needs of high-flying business travellers. For transportation, the two BTS Skytrain stations (Asok and Phorm Phong) and the MRT underground are within a comfortable stroll, putting major parts of Bangkok in the palm of your hand. You will also find a myriad entertainment and shopping possibilities at the hotel's doorstep, including the upscale Emporium shopping mall.

THE DAVIS
| Sukhumvit This fine medium-size hotel is actually two buildings: the main one and the Corner Wing, which is two doors down the street and has a separate reception and lobby. Rooms in both buildings have the same decor and amenities. The showpiece of the Davis is two Thai villas—separate houses with modern amenities, but built in traditional Thai style with beautiful wood—both top-of-the-line two- and three-bedroom structures with all the amenities, their own pool, and a price tag of B25,000 to B30,000 per day (there are big discounts for monthly stays). For humbler budgets, the rooms in the main buildings are comfortable and classy, individually decorated in styles that vary from Bali and Bombay to Thai, and even Florida.


THE HANSAR
| Sukhumvit Iconic architectural design meets urban sophistication at Hansar Bangkok, a haven of elegance set in a dazzling chrome and glass tower conveniently located in the business and exclusive shopping district of Ratchaprasong and close to the Erawan Shrine. With spacious suites, four inviting dining options, a rooftop infinity-edge pool and a dreamy spa, this is the epitome of modernism and comfort. With the BTS Skytrain just steps from the hotel, Bangkok is at your beck and call. Spend time looking at some of the magnificent temples including the Grand Palace and Wat Pho. Then head for the bazaars of Suan Lum before visiting Chatuchak Market. Return to dine at Eve restaurant on inventive Mediterranean cuisine before a nightcap at Bangkok’s latest hot spot, the hotel’s Vue bar.
