The Metropolitan Bangkok
Most popular luxury boutique hotel in Bangkok, and a good option for a long airport layover. Sister to the ultra-hip London property, with its Mies van der Rohe-style facade and black Yohji Yamamoto uniformed staff, The Metropolitan Bangkok is the essence of modernism. In October 2008, Town & Country announced the launch of the hotel's long layover special for $200, Touchdown at the Met," which includes limousine transfers from the airport, a Como Shambhala oil massage, and a 3 course meal at the hotel's restaurant. In December 2010, Wallpaper praised the home-style dining and relaxed surrounding of the Metropolitan's Thai restaurant, Namm, under the direction of acclaimed Australian chef David Thompson.
