I used to travel to BKK quite frequently as a PLT SPG but have since curtailed my travel and reduced to Gold. (On a side note, my wife is also Gold. Wish you could combine your status when traveling together on leisure to become the equiv of PLT for just that trip!) This was also before the LM existed, so our choice was always the SGS due to the massive breakfast, ease of jumping on the BTS and the wonderful staff. We'll be back in August and I'm trying to decide where to stay. The LM comes out to about $100US a night vs. $150 for the SGS. We'll be there for three nights and the purpose is to pickup a few suits and relax. The SGS pool has always treated us well with its enclosed feel. We won't spend a tremendous amount of time at the pool but it is a bonus. I understand the the LM is very close to the Sala Daeng stop? I know it is close the Patpong but that is not a negative in our eyes. We have a massage parlor nearby we like (a legit one!) and will eat at Le Bouchon in Patpong at least one night. Given that a suite upgrade is not likely, what's the overall general opinion of the LM vs SGS? I understand the LM breakfast is actually better than the SGS? How about the pool, overall rooms, experience, etc? Thanks!
