The Landmark, Bangkok
When arriving at the Landmark Hotel, guests immediately realize how it got its name. The location is pristine, and this beautiful, tall building that stands out in the heart of Bangkok, which is saying something as the city is ripe with magnificent buildings.
The lobby’s cathedral ceiling and marble floors give the impression of a luxurious Las Vegas hotel, lavish and lush. The receptionist greeted us and took us to the 31st floor, all the way to the top, where we met with the hotel’s management. After giving us in depth details about our stay at the Landmark and all the generous complimentary perks that came along with it, we headed back down to the 24th floor to see our room.
Although the Landmark was built almost 30 years ago, most of the rooms have been recently renovated and our room was simply gorgeous, from the enormous king size bed to the modernized bathroom, every detail in the room was carefully chosen for comfort and style.
Every morning, we would receive an English copy of the local Newspaper outside our door before heading to the breakfast buffet.
The buffet’s variety was broad to say the least. If you wanted Western, Chinese, Thai or even European choices, it was all there. The buffet chefs offer to make a fresh omelette with ingredients of your choice, as well as pancakes and waffles made on the spot, delicious! Fresh fruits, cold cuts and cheese are also at your disposal. We would enjoy our daily iced coffee while reading that newspaper.
Further into the day, you might feel the need for some quiet time by the pool located on the 9th floor. Its privacy makes you almost forget that you’re in the heart of the country’s capital. After cooling off in the pool, make sure to visit the sundeck, located a stairway away. A small bar on the sundeck serves refreshments throughout the day while you enjoy the lounging in the sun. The fitness room is modern and can help you feel less guilty about all those pastries you’ve been having at the breakfast buffet.
At night, we would eagerly visit the 31st floor where you can relish a view of the city from up on high, while enjoying complimentary drinks and snacks.
The evening buffet is very diverse and was simply delicious. We were also given a wonderful token of appreciation, rebates on the hotel’s steakhouse, bar and spa. Chocolates and the teddy bears that represent the Landmark’s mascot were left on in our room, simply a kind-hearted gesture.
The staff was supportive, knowledgeable and positive from start to finish, from helping us find local restaurants and directions for entertainment, all the way to securing our luggage while we waited for our transportation.
We got to meet the director of marketing communications who insured that our stay had met our expectations. It obviously had, as we would definitely recommend The Landmark and visit again in the future!
