Luxury Bangkok Hotel's Executive Lounge Is All About Comfort, Community and Connectivity

BANGKOK, THAILAND--(Marketwire - Jul 8, 2011) - Most five-star luxury hotels in Bangkok have some sort of an executive lounge. These lounges are one of the value added benefits that hotels provide to guests who choose to reside in the more expensive rooms on the upper floors and tend to particularly target business travellers and families. But as with just about everything else, not all executive lounges are created equal.

In many ways the JW Marriott Bangkok -- a luxurious business hotel on Sukhumvit Road, has stretched the boundaries of what an executive lounge ought to be. It's a place for meals, coffee breaks and snacks, working on a laptop, informal meetings, unwinding with a glass of wine or a cocktail, and networking. Spacious, cosy and with a 16th floor view, the lounge is open to all guests of the hotel's executive level from 6:00 a.m. to midnight.

The layout of the Bangkok city center hotel's executive lounge is exceptional in that there is a variety of seating options, each with its own feel, depending on what particular mood you are in. There are tables of four at the centre of the lounge which are ideal for small groups and business lunches. At the back are tables for larger groups or families with children. Window seats on the left side of the lounge feature intimate tables for two, overlooking Sukhumvit Road. On the right side are counter tops perfect for a quick bite or to read a newspaper. Also, on the right side are fabulous window tables for two with tall-back, leather armchairs. These seats afford a comfortable stay and tremendous natural light for guests who might want to work on their laptop for an extended period of time. There are also tables on the spacious outdoor deck, available for meals or relaxing with a cappuccino, cocktail or cigar.

Perhaps the most enduring element of the lounge's layout is its homey open kitchen, complete with a cooking station/buffet island, inside of which a smiling chef churns out such delicacies as pancakes, omelettes, salads, salmon sandwiches, and mini-burgers. The lounge's menu changes daily with different types of cuisines, so eating there never gets boring. There are also glass door refrigerators with a wide selection of cold drinks, baskets filled with fresh breads, pitchers of fresh squeezed juices, and two self-serving coffee/tea machines. Best of all might be the two ovens which guests can take their "just baked" breads and pastries out of!

A deluxe breakfast is served daily from 6:00 a.m. till 10:30 or 11:00 a.m. Coffee, tea, snacks and non-alcoholic beverages are served throughout the day. High tea goes from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. and open bar (wine, beer, spirits and cocktails) runs from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. Meanwhile, canapés are served from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

In addition to its food and beverage delights, the Bangkok business hotel's lounge has 24/7 wireless connectivity, two flat screens and daily newspapers, making it an ideal spot to work, relax, eat or just escape with a book . What's more, the dedicated executive level concierges will make your life a whole lot easier with express check-in/check-out, currency exchange, photocopying, last minute business needs, restaurant bookings, organizing travel plans, and even shoe shines!

But as many seasoned travellers will tell you, what sets the JW Marriott Bangkok's executive lounge apart from so many other executive lounges are its friendly, helpful staff and professional service. This ethos permeates the entire executive lounge and helps to create a wonderful sense of community. Returning guests will discover that staff remembers their names and are eager and willing to do all those little things that make a stay convenient and memorable.

Executive Lounge is located on the 16th floor of the JW Marriott Bangkok at 4 Sukhumvit Road Soi 2. For complete information and to make reservations call 0 2656 7700 or visit www.marriott.com/bkkdt to find out more.
