With the hardware and facility in perfect order, the hospitality and service will be the next thing to look for. Our check-in at the Executive Club Floor was a little hit and miss as we moved into the InterContinental Bangkok from our previous stay across the hotel in Holiday Inn Bangkok that reconfirmed our booking on the same morning at 10am with the room to be ready by 11am. We deliberately checked-in at 1:30pm to give them more time to settle but to our dismay upon arrival, the booking was not found neither the room assigned ready. After a good 20 minutes back and forth internal communication checks, our room finally being assigned to a higher floor with the city view facing Sukhumvit. The process was rather below our expectation with a further delay on our tea selection request to be delivered to our room which took 30 minutes after a call was placed.
A self-upgrade to the Executive Club lounge in InterContinental Bangkok on the level 37 is a definite must as the benefits are not only extended to further upgrades on room categories (base on availability) and business center assistance that facilitate your immediate secretariat needs, yet you can also enjoy a better quality premium breakfast with bottomless bubbly included and all-you-can-order from its carefully crafted international and local menu. Phad Thai noodles, Thai congee, egg benedicts and much more are among many of the highlights that are prepared a-la-minute.
Afternoon tea with sandwiches and canapes are served as well as the early evening cocktails with a mini-buffet set up almost like a full dinner meal - from hors d'œuvres and savories to a great cheese selection, bread, pastry and warm cooked canapes that are prepared to your desired craving.
There was even a whole leg of Spanish Jamon available during our visit that you could slice to your own preference. Premium wines and beers are offered to our own liking with the uninterrupted views from atop to watch the sun go down. Along with such an irresistible offer, non-alcoholic beverages also served throughout the day.
