Profile

Located in the heart of Sukhumvit, a short walk to BTS (Skytrain) and MRT stations, places it 30 minutes by car from Suvarnabhumi airport, and five minutes by taxi, or one stop on the MRT, to the Queen Sirikrit National Convention Centre. Also close at hand are the shopping meccas of Terminal 21, Siam Square, and Paragon.

Front Desk

Overhauled in early 2015, the lobby is reminiscent of an art gallery, with row of anamorphic art by French photographer Charles Maze, as well as a jaw-dropping copper arch that is a modern interpretation of La Grande Arche de la Défense in Paris.

Room Service

All 345 rooms are decked out in French and Thai design accents - think marble tops, timber flooring and autumnal tones. Guests of Club Millésime rooms enjoy butler service, a dedicated checkin and check-out, and all-day food and beverage at the exclusive lounge on the 31st floor.

Entertain

Savour a French pastry at Le Macaron; take in the dazzling view at rooftop bar-cum-restaurant L'Appart, which is designed to look like a Haussmann apartment; or tuck into an international menu at Voila! Guests can enjoy a massage at Thailand's first Le Spa with L'Occitane; or work out at 24-hour fitness centre So Fit.


Meeting Point

All 15 meeting spaces boast natural lighting and are equipped with sophisticated technology (think Bose surround sound and 50-inch plasma screens) that ensures your meetings run without a hitch.

The stylishly designed foyer on the third floor can be utilised for an exhibition, cocktail session or themed coffee breaks. Upstairs, the sixth floor features two meeting spaces and a centralised break-out area that is perfect for teatime mingling.

The highlight of the hotel's meeting spaces is the 700sqm pillar-less Le Grand ballroom, which accommodates up to 800 people. A dedicated elevator offers attendees a convenient direct
access to the car park.

 An imaginative alternative to the usual set-up is S Gallery, which can host receptions for up to 50 people, or intimate dinners for small groups. Contemporary art works exhibited here change every two months, so you will never run out of interesting conversation topics.

X-Factor

Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit is an efficient choice for business travellers, thanks to its convenient location. Its beautiful Art Deco interiors create a cosmopolitan setting - a refreshing departure from typical luxury hotels. The depth and variety of meeting venues on offer also makes it a suitable choice regardless of event.
