One of the grande dames of Bangkok’s hospitality scene, The Peninsula Bangkok walks a fine line between classic elegance and modern design with Thai touches. All rooms offer river views and tall windows and feature muted carpeting and art, oversized desks and teak and makha wood furnishings and wall panels. The nightstand is equipped with a control panel for lighting, and an in-room fax machine also relays messages from the front desk. The bathrooms are luxurious with twin marble vanities, bathtubs with river views and television sets built into the wall. The rooms are shaped to create angles that allow for privacy — the bed, for instance, is not readily visible from the foyer.
