There are a lot of great hotels in Bangkok and I have already had the opportunity to try some, including the Ritz-Carlton, Royal Thai Hotel and Chiang Mai International Hotel. On my last visit, I stayed at one of my favorite Starwood hotels around the world. The nightlife and markets are equally close and we hardly used a taxi or tuk-tuk during our entire stay.
