Right next door to the huge Soi Thonglor is Sukhumvit Soi 57 — a much smaller street than its neighbour!
The major hot spot on this road is the Bangkok Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit right on the corner, which we’ll discuss in detail.
It’s a bit quieter down here than some of the larger and rowdier parts of Thonglor, but you’re still only moments away from the thick of the action.
Let’s take a look at the highlights.
The Marriott hotel on Soi 57 is one of the most popular luxury hotels in the city. They have 6 room types available, ranging from a deluxe room to a 2 bedroom presidential suite, which comes with added extras like daily evening canapes, daily open bar, complimentary cocktails and a daily afternoon tea.
In terms of facilities, there’s a large spa, rooftop pool, whirlpool and a comprehensive fitness centre. Meeting and wedding facilities are also available. Dining outlets include the all-day dining at 57th Street, The District Grill Room & Bar, Octave Rooftop and Bar (to be discussed) and the Chocolate Cake Company.
Octave is found at the very top of the Marriott hotel, ranging from the 45th to the 49th floor with 360° panoramic views across the city. As well as the rooftop areas, there are also a few levels below of restaurant and bar, a lounge and a private room.
Also on Sukhumvit Soi 57 is the Marriott Executive Apartments — fully furnished apartments each with a kitchen, storage and 24-hour security. They have one, two and three bedroom units available. It also offers a full service spa, gym, and swimming pool.
