Another addition to Marriott’s expanding portfolio of executive serviced apartments.
In December of 2009 I spent a couple of nights at the newly opened Sukhumvit Park Bangkok, Marriott Executive Apartments. After finally opening on October 23rd after a number of delays, Sukhumvit Park is the third executive serviced apartments in Bangkok after the Mayfair Marriott on Soi Lang Suan and Sathorn Vista, which opened early in 2009 on South Sathorn Road.
Located on Soi 24, which is a road that runs between Sukhumvit Road, a major thoroughfare in Bangkok and Rama IX Road, the new Marriott is in a prime location for both business travelers and tourists. While it is possible to walk to Sukhumvit Road in under 10 minutes, the hotel provides a complimentary tuk-tuk to shuttle guests whenever needed. There is no schedule for the shuttle tuk-tuk, just ask at the front desk. On Sukhumvit Road at the end of Soi 24 there is there upscale Emporium shopping complex and a BTS Skytrain Phrom Phong station.
Room types range from studios, to one, two and three bedroom apartments. The 72 Studio rooms are 45 sqm. There are 184 one bedroom suites at 65 square meters and 20 one bedroom apartments at 85 square meters. The 20 two bedroom apartments are 130 square meters and finally there are 4 three bedroom apartments at a massive 180 square meters. At the time of our visit in December, the three bedroom apartments were not yet completed. Shown in the picture below is the living room of the one bedroom apartment.
What’s not shown in the photo above is the L-shaped leather sofa that can comfortably sit 3 or 4 people. Floors throughout the apartments are hardwood and also feature high quality thick floor rugs in the living room and bedrooms.
There are flat screen TVs in both the living room and the bedrooms, as well as a DVD player in the living room. Living room also features a work desk with a dedicated connectivity board, enabling wired or wireless internet access as well as connecting an iPod to play through the TV speakers. Internet access is provided at 535 Baht (USD 16) per day, 3210 Baht (USD96) per month or for long term residents , 9630 Baht (USD290) per year.
