In short: Attempts of ‘luxury’ impede guest comfort and create embarrassing situations for people attempting to enjoy their time at the hotel. Booked two nights in the Royal Room with Club Lounge access that was on floor 25. Check in for guests staying in rooms with Club Lounge access takes place in the Club Lounge on floor 26. We were taken up here to check in and when seated we were informed that to use the club lounge, guests had to adhere to an arbitrarily enforced dress-code that was not publicized anywhere at the hotel or on the hotels website. The issue was, that both of us in our party were wearing open-toed shoes. No problem, establishments have dress-codes. However, I said to the staff that I did not have any closed toed shoes with me and would prefer to change my room to one that did not include Club Lounge benefits. The staff went away to check with their manager, leaving us sitting in a corner feeling very awkward and slightly embarrassed. For a hotel that is charging upwards of 10,000 THB per night, this check in experience was abhorrent. When the staff did finally come back to us, we were told that as an exception we would be permitted to use the Club Lounge on the condition that we “sat in a corner” and relied on waiting staff to serve us rather than potentially offending guests with our open toed shoes. I understand that a dress code often enhances a venue, however, whoever trained these staff to tell guests to “sit in a corner” needs to be sent on a hotel management course in Zurich. The hotel is fine, facilities are fine, the atmosphere is fine, the staff are fine, the food is fine, the drinks are fine and even the price is fine. But the utter disrespect shown to us during check in infuriated me. What made this situation even more irritating is during the evening cocktail sitting in the Club Lounge (when we were sat in our corner away from anyone who may be offended by our open toed shoes) - I counted at least 5 other guests wearing open toed shoes who were not forcibly sat in a corner by the staff and were not made to feel uncomfortable due to their choice of footwear. Additionally, as a side note, the hotel decided to place a letter under my door fining me a figure of 8000 Thai Baht for allegedly smoking in the bedroom. This is not something I care much for, and will have my solicitor contact the hotel to assess the base of this claim and fine. I will not stay at this premises again, and would in future immediately leave if hotel staff were to tell me to “sit in a corner” On the bright side, it was only a two day trip. Any longer and I would probably have asked for a refund. Thanks 👍

We sadly said goodbye to the hotel and staff this morning. It had been 3 days of wonderful experience that we ended up spending more time in the hotel than we normally would. Thank you to Ake who gave us a tour of the hotel. It's a hotel that used to be a Princess's residence. We had a dress up date in the Presidential Suite, pretending for 1 hour that we were king and queen. Ake help us took lots of pictures for memories. Thank you Ake! The breakfast lounge offers all types of quality choices from around the world. If you are health conscious, no problem. I noticed that even down to the soya sauce they use is of great quality. I can taste it. Marisa at the lounge made sure we are well looked after. This is a well managed hotel. We are absolutely impressed. The management of this hotel needs to be recognized big time. It's obvious that a good system has been implemented from top to bottom to offer guest a great experience. Keep up the great work!
