JW Marriott Hotel Bangkok, Bangkok

Bangkok, Thailand, Asia: A guest room at JW Marriott Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand
4 Sukhumvit Road
Soi 2

Tel: 66 2 656 7700's insider take:

The JW Marriott is by far the best value in Bangkok. Rates as low as $200 a night will buy you one of the 441 richly paneled guest rooms with high-tech toys like the Remote Jack Pack—which interconnects MP3 players, digital cameras, and laptops to a 32-inch flat-screen television—as well as a team of IT concierges to guide you through the process. Even better is the prime Sukhumvit location along Bangkok's Skytrain, particularly important as bell staff sometimes fail to assist non-Thai speakers in communicating addresses to cabdrivers. The rest of the service, however, proves impeccable. The 24-hour business center capably handles everything from faxing to locating an attorney. Friendly concierges go out of their way to arrange tours and dinner reservations. Those homesick for American fare can dine at the on-site New York Steakhouse, or grab breakfast at the Bangkok Baking Company, which is rightly famous for its fluffy croissants and homemade chocolate truffles. The plush lounge chairs at the outdoor swimming pool are an ideal place to unwind after a day of sightseeing, as is the on-site spa.

Set on bustling Sukhumvit Road, this former office building has "a fantastic location." The gardens, high ceilings, and Thai decor make it feel like "a real sanctuary." In minimalist rooms, the bathrooms have "spacious standalone glass-walled showers." White Elephant's Thai cuisine is "the real thing—most of the diners are locals!"
