International tourist arrivals in Thailand reached a record high in 2016 and is projected to continue doing well in 2017 with more than 30 million foreigners arrivals annually. Tourism accounts for about 10 percent of Thailand’s GDP and is one of the few bright spots for an economy that under performed peers in Southeast Asia. So it not surprising to see many new hotels being built. But amid the wide offering, the recently opened (February 2017) 137 Pillars Suites and Residences is one hotel to watch.
The great location
Located at the heart of Bangkok’s upscale Emquartier & Emporium Shopping area and in the heart of fashionable Thonglor district of Bangkok, this hotel is well placed for business or pleasure. The hotel facade is located along Soi 39, Sukhumvit, the hotel is in a serene area, unaffected by traffic noise.
Hip cafe to dine and be seen in
Playing around with retro tiles and old-school explorers’ gears like compasses, telescopes and field chairs, amid high ceilings, wood and marble, the decor is inspired from the colonial old straits trading days. Other than baked items and sandwiches from the deli counter, guests can also find local and international comfort dishes. Do check out their superb purple sweet potato cake.
You can enjoy a wide range of artisan breads, jams, patisserie with cakes, pastries,l pizzas and local delicacies from the regions. Casual dining from breakfast at sunrise to late supper with friends. Dine in, take-away or even delivery to guests suites.
Lovely room and sleep quality
Guests looking for spaciousness and great room amenities will be pleased with this hotel.

Gorgeous infinity swimming pool
The immense competition in the Bangkok hospitality scene necessitate newer hotels to innovate and carve out it’s niche market. Although recently opened, the 137 Pillars Hotels group is by no means a new player, having opened their first hotel in 2011, the 137 Pillars House in Chiang Mai with another coming up in Phuket (Kata Beach, in 2019).
With the great stay experience and service that I enjoyed at this hotel and all the positives in the right place, I have reason to believe that this hotel will do exceptionally well ,as evidenced by the healthy occupancy rate. Will I stay here again in my future Bangkok trip ? -100% Yes ! Will I recommend it to anyone visiting Bangkok -100% Yes, too !
