Double Tree By Hilton Hotel: Sukhumvit Bangkok
Double Tree by Hilton in Bangkok is only about 1.5 years old. You can tell it is almost brand new by the trendy styling and pristine interior. The modern decorations follow a musical theme and include such funky details as a collage of cassette tapes and one made of vintage radios. Our room was on the smaller side, but sunny with marble floors and a spacious contemporary bathroom.
The Sukhumvit location is close to Suk Soi 11, a popular nightlife destination in Bangkok with plenty of dining options. Around the corner is plenty of local food and typical Thai street stalls. There is also a large shopping mall and movie theater a few blocks away.
The pool at Double Tree is on the fifth floor and has an expansive deck. The pool itself is quite large and has lounges resting in the water. Looking out across the pool is the Mosaic bar complete with over sized couches and loveseats. The gym is also on this floor and has two glass walls overlooking the pool area. Enjoy 50% off drinks at the bar from 6 to 8 p.m.
There are several restaurants along the road in front of the hotel and the concierge recommended Lemon Tree, just in front of the Hilton (the sister hotel directly behind Double Tree). Dishes were mostly 200-300 baht with some more expensive options. We ordered mild peppers stuffed with beef in curry sauce and they were delicious! It was unlike anything I’ve had in Thailand so far. Eric had a Thai omelet stuffed with fried pork and vegetables. It was good, but a bit dry. The restaurant was cutely decorated and had unique wooden tables filled with holes.
Breakfast, served in Dee Lite (the in-house restaurant), was an expansive continental spread of Asian dishes, dim sum and western style breakfast options. A chef was standing by to make eggs and omelets to order.
Our King Deluxe room was well designed and a huge window overlooking the city really opened it up. We were on the 18th floor and had a wonderful view across the city. At night you could see the colorful changing lights on top of the skyscrapers. The bed had a down comforter and down pillows and was very comfortable, and the bathroom was spacious with a roomy rain shower and large tub.
