Hotel Review: Conrad, Bangkok

Arrival & Check-in We arrived at the hotel via taxi from BKK, which took over an hour due to the traffic but cost only a few dollars. The hotel itself is situated near Limpini Park and the U.S. Embassy, but a bit far from the Skytrain and main downtown attractions. It was hot and steamy, …
