Everyone knows the hotel you stay at has a huge impact on the effectiveness of your meeting. Doing business in Bangkok is made simple with access to the Skytrain, expressways, Underground, stunning new airport Suvarnabhumi…and of course, the business hotels. I have selected my top 5 picks for the best business hotels in Bangkok for your next corporate getaway — each one is smart, sophisticated, well-mannered and technologically savvy.
Plaza Athenee Bangkok
As one of Bangkok’s largest business hotels, Plaza Athenee Bangkok is situated in the heart of Bangkok and is surrounded by the city central business and diplomatic quarter. Rest assured that you will have a successful meeting with 5,600 sq. meters of space and a full range of the latest technology including audiovisual systems, wireless technology, LCD projectors broadband access and full secretarial services. I encourage you to check out the full-service spa and breathtaking outdoor pool surrounded by exotic Thai-style gardens, a fitness centre, and squash courts during your breaks!
InterContinental Bangkok is located adjacent to the Chidlom BTS Skytrain, and is within walking distance of the central district famous for its lifestyle shopping and business precincts. Their ballroom can accommodate up to 1000 people for cocktail events and 600 people for gala dinners. They also have a dedicated area which can accommodate up to 1500 guests for cocktail events and 750 people for banquets. Dining is also a luxury at this hotel. I think you will be quite satisfied with the meals at one of their 5 restaurants: Espresso, Fireplace Grill, Grossi Trattoria & Wine Bar, Summer Place, and The Deli.
Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit
From the marble floor and winding staircase to the brass fixtures, everything at this lavish hotel comes polished for your business needs. From wireless high speed Internet and video-conferencing capabilities to mobile telephone rentals, this hotel has it all. The Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit offers the perfect location for those looking to explore the city as well. Visit the Stock Exchange of Thailand or shopping centers like The Emporium, which is a great place to get souvenirs for your friends at home.
The Westin Grande Sukhumvit Bangkok
Located one block from Asok Skytrain station, The Westin Grande Sukhumvit Bangkok offers signature business services from its 24-hour business center to Executive Business Suites. Choose to host your meeting in one of their 9 function rooms, which can comfortably accommodate up to 600 people. Planning a breakout session? This hotel offers an entire floor dedicated to breakout rooms! I also want to point out that dining is an enticing and healthy experience with the hotel’s SuperFoodsRx menu, which is designed to improve wellbeing.
The Peninsula Bangkok
Located near most of the important business centers, The Peninsula Bangkok is a great place for group meetings or for those travelling on business alone. Choose from one of their many function rooms from their Boardroom to the Sakuntala Ballroom. Depending on which room you select, this property can accommodate any size of event. Overlooking the Chao Phraya River and Bangkok skyline, this hotel offers 5 restaurants and bars where I recommend you sit back and enjoy the view.
