I stayed at the Four Points Hotel in Bangkok this past December. The location of the hotel is great, right off Sukhumvit Soi 15. It’s about equidistant from the Nana and Asoke BTS Skytrain stations so it’s easy to access public transportation.
I paid for my stay using the cash & points option offered by the Starwood Preferred Guest program. This hotel is only a Category 2 so my stay only cost me 1,600 Starpoints + $30 USD (plus taxes) a night. A regular rate at the hotel usually over $100/night so the cash & points redemption was a great value. The hotel is only a year old and it was celebrating its one year anniversary so for the whole month of December it was offering several $1 USD restaurant promotions.
I was given a standard room (pictured above). The bathroom had a sliding door that you could slide open for a more open feeling. There is no free internet in the room but there is free wifi in the lobby. The hotel also has 3 workstations in the lobby that you can use. To access the free wifi or workstations, you had to go to the front desk and get a code that was good for a couple hours or one day.
After settling into my room, I went up to the top floor to check out the pool. The pool is a 15-meter outdoor infinity pool. There is also a bar lounge area near the pool. I went back in the early evening to check out it out but it was empty because it was still early. One thing that seemed strange to me was that the lounge area was very dark at night. It didn’t look like there was sufficient lighting to see what was going on.
I had only planned to stay one night but the morning I was supposed to check out, I decided to stay another night. I looked online and there was no option for cash & points that night. I read on FlyerTalk that you can sometimes speak to the hotel directly and they can open up space for a cash & points redemption. I was able to speak to the front desk and they allowed me to stay another night at the same cash & points option I had previously booked so that worked out well.
Overall I enjoyed my stay at the hotel and recommend it for anyone looking for a mid-range hotel in Bangkok. I think this hotel is a great value being a category 2 hotel in the Starwood Preferred Guest program. The only thing that bothered me was that I had to go down to the lobby to access free internet. This is not a problem if you have elite status in the Starwood Preferred Guest program because elites get free internet access.
