Centara Grand is a luxury hotel close to Chatuchak Park and the popular Chatuchak Weekend Market, easily accessible by Skytrain and MRT. Here’s what they say on their website:
Bangkok is one of the intriguing cities of Asia; a place of glittering temples, a diverse cultural heritage, a majestic river, a myriad of exquisite dining opportunities and fabulous shopping options, and an energy that makes everything possible 24 hours a day. Located on the northern side of Bangkok, within the Ladprao business district and moments away from Chatuchak Park, the hotel is one of the city’s timeless landmarks.
Fully renovated to a modern and inviting style and re-opened in 2012, Thailand’s very first integrated five-star hotel and shopping destination has a reputation for attentive service, sublime dining and modern accommodations.
Integral to the hotel is the Bangkok Convention Centre Hall and the Central Plaza shopping and lifestyle complex, together offering all that is needed for guests staying in Bangkok on leisure or business. The hotel features extensive meetings and events facilities spanning over 10,000 square metres and complementing those of the adjacent 2,506-square-metre Bangkok Convention Centre Hall which can accommodate up to 3,800 persons in cocktail style and is serviced by separate kitchens. The hotel’s elegant, pillar-less Vibhavadee Ballroom can serve 2,000 for a reception, dazzling wedding party or product launch; and there also is a collection of 17 fully-equipped suites and boardrooms.
