The Princess has many amenities, including a world-class spa, fitness center, and five restaurants. The included breakfast buffet is one of the best I've had in a hotel, with everything from congee to muesli.
I especially enjoyed the Olympic-sized outdoor pool and the quiet garden where the hot tubs are located. The eighth-floor patio is also the location of the Loop restaurant, their Italian offering. It is very pleasant to swim here under the stars, far above the traffic and pollution of Bangkok's street level.
The Pathumwam Princess is connected directly to the humongous MBK shopping center, its seven floors within an air-conditioned stroll from the lobby. In the vicinity, you can also visit three other malls and many small boutiques in Siam Square. This is the ultimate shopping destination in Bangkok.
The Pathumwam is very close to the skytrain, and we used the skytrain to get everywhere during our visit.
I visited their spa here and enjoyed a manicure and pedicure. Manicure/pedicures include a foot, leg and hand massage.
The only downside is the expense of laundry, which would have cost us $50 for the same load we did in Cambodia for $7. This establishment is quite pricey, but the quality shows.

The rooms were comfortable and well appointed with a stunning view of the city. We turned out the lights and open the curtains and gazed out at the city lights before drifting off to sleep. Highly recommended!
The pool was quite large and the climate seemed to keep it at a pleasant temperature for swimming. The gymnasium was both larger and better equipped than the local one at home. The additional benefit was that access was free for hotel guests. The gym also had a icy cold water fountain. Ideal for filling up our insulated flasks for a day of touring around Bangkok!
