Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park opened in 2016 as a rebranded hotel after major refurbishment work. The hotel was originally built in 1992 under the name Imperial Queen’s Park. This hotel is now the largest in Bangkok with two 37-floor towers and a total of 1,388 rooms.

The hotel only has the North Tower opened at the moment.


The hotel is located right beside the beautiful Benchasiri Park. The park is accessible through the back gate of the hotel and is a great for strolls at sunset.

Upon arrival, we had our temperatures taken and were assisted with our luggages before being directed to the reception. The grand lobby was massive!

I had a 1-night stay a week before this and was not upgraded as the suites were fully occupied. However, I was pre-upgraded to the Grand Marquis Suite this time!

As I wanted to use my Marriott eGiftCard, I’d requested to settle the room charges immediately upon arrival to prevent any delays during check out.

The room (Grand Marquis Suite)

Room 3431 is 128sqm / 1,377sqft in size. The rectangular shape of this suite allowed me to see the entire length of it from end to end. There are 2 Grand Marquis suites on the 34th floor and both of them takes up almost the entire floor!

The suite includes a mini-office, a kitchen with a microwave and full-sized refrigerator (no kitchenette) and even a second work desk in the bedroom.

The panoramic view from the suite is mostly unblocked. However, there looked to be a massive construction site nearby. After some googling, I found that Bangkok Arena, which will be an indoor arena with a mall attached, is being built at this site. It is slated to open in 2023.

The room (King Deluxe)

As mentioned above, I had a 1-night stay about a week before the stay with a suite upgrade. The interior of room 1947 was decent. However, I wish that it was fully carpeted. For me, cold tiles takes away some ‘luxury’ in hotel rooms.

The view from the room wasn’t great. It offered a pool view but there wasn’t much privacy as it was facing the South tower.

Best rooms

In general, I always ask for a room on the highest floor possible and it must not be a connecting room (less noise).

Request for a north-facing room for better privacy.

Lunch at Siam Tea Room

As mentioned above, the package that I booked directly at included 1 set lunch or dinner for 2 guests. This was an offer available for 2-night stays. It is still available at the time of writing.

It was a 3-course meal with limited choices. As I do not eat pork, the restaurant was happy to substitute it to chicken. It wasn’t a fancy meal but the dishes tasted good.

M Club Lounge

The hotel has 2 M Club Lounges. However, as the one in the North Tower is not large enough, Platinum members and above can enjoy lounge benefits at the lobby.

Non-alcoholic beverages are served all day and evening cocktail from 5.30pm to 8pm.


Breakfast is complimentary for Platinum members and above and was served at Goji Kitchen + Bar from 6.30am to 10.30am.

The buffet spread and food quality was just okay.

Other facilities

The swimming pool looked modern but it was small for a hotel of this size.

The gym is located in the South Tower, next to the pool.

The rooftop bar, ABar, is located in the South Tower as well.


Breakfast: 6/10
Service: 7/10

Room: 9/10
Club lounge: 7/10
Facilities: 8/10
Elite member recognition: 10/10
Value (for what I paid): 10/10

Bottom line

Service was very hit-and-miss at this property. Some staff (at breakfast and the lounge) were trying their best while others didn’t look happy to be working in this hotel. It is rare to receive bad service in Thailand, where hospitality is among the best in the world.

Although the club lounge and breakfast experiences were less than ideal, the fact is, I paid a rock-bottom rate. Despite the short falls, this stay, with an upgrade to a huge suite, was still an easy 10/10 in value.
