Home to the temple of the Reclining Buddha, floating markets, and the iconic Khaosan Road, Bangkok is a great city to visit for a quick culture adventure in Thailand. Prior to the trip, we had planned a jam-packed itinerary, which included temple visits, shopping and food tripping at the night markets, Chinatown, shopping and many more.
So just imagine all the walking and riding the BTS, plus the humid weather, at the end of each day, we always ended up dead tired and rushing to go to bed. And boy did our accommodation for this trip not disappoint—in collaboration with Agoda, we got to experience the very first Marriott Marquis Hotel in the Asia Pacific.
Right in the heart of the city
First thing to love about staying at Marriott Marquis BKK is its accessibility. Just a three-minute walk to Phrom Phong’s BTS Skytrain Station will give you easy access to the key places around the metro. The Benjasiri Park is also accessible through the back entrance of the hotel. We spent some time strolling in the park while watching the locals go about their outdoor workouts such as jogging, doing yoga and just chilling. There’s also a lifestyle mall nearby called EmQuartier, if you’re in the mood for some shopping.
We got the Deluxe King suite with a view of the pool and the North Building; it’s equipped with a king-sized bed, a cable TV, a closet, a lovely office corner, a really nice bathroom and of course, excellent Wi-Fi. It’s spacious, quiet and straight-up ballin’. We love a stylish hotel room—and at Marriott Marquis BKK, you’ve got a couple of options to choose from, including the Deluxe King, the Grand Marquis Suite Bedroom and the M Suite Room, to name a few.
We all know the fun doesn’t stop inside your suite. Marriott Marquis BKK boasts a number of top-tier amenities including two outdoor pools, a sizable gym and a dream-like spa, catering to every guest’s needs and more.
Drink and Dine
Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park is also known to have a diverse selection of exciting dining venues like the all-day dining restaurant, Goji Kitchen + Bar, Siam Tea Room, Soba Factory, Pagoda Chinese Restaurant, and Akira Back Restaurant and Bar.
We popped in at Marriott Marquis BKK’s rooftop bar on our last night in the city. If you’re a caveman who’s into dark spirits, such as dark rum, cognac and whiskeys from around the globe, ABar is perfect for you. There’s also the ABar Rooftop, an open-air bar which features one of the largest selections of gins in the city, with more than 50 different varieties including many craft labels.
All in all, we had a pleasurable stay at Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park—we’re giving it a 10/10! We didn’t just merely take refuge in our hotel room after a long day of travel, but we got to experience this stunning property in its entirety—lounging in their outdoor pools (it was pretty humid at the time we were there), enjoying a drink or four at their bars, and even squeezing in a quick weightlifting sesh in their fitness center.
When’s the best time to book an accommodation at Marriott Marquis BKK? Given the grandness that this exquisite hotel offers, Team Caveman recommends that you book a stay here for the more special trips—say, if you’re celebrating your anniversary with the bae or a certain milestone in your career, or maybe if it’s your first overseas travel in a long time—then this would be the perfect place to stay in if you are visiting Bangkok and want to feel like kings and queens during the trip.
