Suite rooms for busy people:
Business meetings can be full of trouble and strife, hard work and just downright harrowing, especially if the hotel isn’t up to it. But it needn’t be like this—that is, if you are prepared to spend a little time, do a little homework and research to know what to look for in a hotel. In theory the weary business person would like to not only glide through a business meeting in a relaxed atmosphere, but also be able to wind-down after the show. Creature comforts supplied by a hotel are all important.
Whether you are arranging a conference or simply attending and wish to stay as a guest nearby. Budget is the first question you should be asking yourself. Spend too little and you may regret it, spend too much…
For the host of the conference, it is paramount to consider location, accessibility, hotel facilities and service. Winding up at a hotel which is away from good public transport and amenities, or one that does not have the required facilities would not only make life uncomfortable for your business guests, but may end up costing you money in lost clients in the long run.
The location of the hotel should be near a convenient area at the heart of Bangkok’s business center and ideally set back away from the main drag to allow space for freedom and relaxation. Good access to and from the international and domestic airports is also important. Around 90 minutes to airports by car or by public transport should be the maximum. It goes without saying, but easy access to all business hubs within the city is also necessary, plus access to the famed Thai tourist attractions should not be forgotten either. Business people usually find a little time to see the city, even if it’s just for a few hours.
Hotels and its facilities:
Now that hotel location and access has been covered, it’s time to look at hotel facilities. Again, the decision is yours and should be considered according to you or your guest’s needs. The following questions should be asked; can your hotel offer a variety of rooms from superior standard to high rating suite and deluxe rooms? Does the hotel have a good track record of staff efficiency and service? Are the hotel suites and conference rooms sufficiently equipped to allow conferences and meetings with high-technological tools? Does the hotel provide high speed internet ports?
Hotel food raises other questions; does the hotel provide a sufficient range of food that would suit the everyday business person? Not only does this mean that the food should always look appealing and appetizing, but it should also be of a high quality with an array of menus to include vegetarian, Japanese, Chinese and of course Thai.
Summing up, first impressions and the general atmosphere of the hotel, should be a prerequisite when deciding a suitable hotel. As mentioned before, slightly set back from the bright lights of the city for location-but not too far from other city access hubs. This will allow for peace and quiet for conferences, whilst providing the much needed relaxation for guests. If we may be so bold as to suggest; the Tai-Pan Hotel off the Asoke and Sukhumvit Roads offer all of the above and more. Providing access to all of Bangkok business and tourist centers whilst offering great food and service to accommodate the range of 146 rooms and function suites rooms catering to the needs of all business people and tourists alike.
