It took about from the airport to get to the Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok. The closer we got to the hotel, the worse traffic got.

Upon entering the small circular driveway to the hotel, we were stopped by security where the underside of the car was inspected for possible bomb threat. Once cleared, we were warmly welcomed into the hotel.

The entrance to the hotel is an open concepts, but does feel a bit cramped as there are many tables and chairs throughout the lobby.

After speaking with the front desk, I was asked to follow one of the employees for a more formal check-in the Club Lounge. Check-in was smooth with all amenities clearly explained.

The bathroom is large with double sinks and ample counter space. The tub is deep, but is made out of fiberglass so it has a tendency to look “dirty”.

Breakfast in the Grand Club consisted of fresh cut up and whole fruit, smoked salmon, salad, yogurt, cereal, bread, pastries. There were hot dishes that rotated, but eggs, and a meat dish were always provided.

We had an extremely late flight, and the hotel graciously let us stay past the 4 PM check-out and allowed us to use another room until 9 PM to freshen up and relax before our departing flight.

Although conveniently located, traffic around the area can be a nightmare.

The staff are extremely friendly, warm and helpful.  I would definitely consider staying here again in the future.
