We stayed at the Renaissance Hotel in January 2012 for 4 days. The hotel is located 30 minutes from the international airport. We had a hard time finding it because the taxi driver doesn't really know where it's at. Finally, after 3 attempts he found it,since it right across from the Intercon Hotel with a big" I" sign in Sukhumvit/Ratchaprasong Street. Our check in was smooth and easy. We got in our room right away since it's it's 3 am. The hotel is located in front of the BTS station and shopping mall. What I love about this hotel is it's convenience to everything.We are platinum elite so we have access of the executive lounge with free breakfast and hor d'oeuvres. The rooms are modern and spacious and the beds comfortable. The pool,spa and the exercise areas are located at the top floor overlooking the city. I had a massage at the hotel and it was relaxing which helped me unwind after a long flight. The only downside with Thailand is that we have difficulty communicating and they can charge you more money than what you want to pay if they know you're a foreigner. For example at the airport the AOT booth will charge you 1100 baht but if you go down the first floor you'll find a taxi that will take you to your hotel for 350-400 baht fixed price.If ou're more of a seasoned traveler you can take the metered taxi but if you're new to the area use the one in the first floor with fixed price to take you to your hotel. You just have to learn how to bargain for a fair price. Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Renaissance hotel and hope to stay there again in the future.
