    I spent a lot of time at this hotel with Sompong making the best bloody mary I have ever had at happy hour. Lunch at the pool, and all the activities of Bangkok including Chatuchak are very fond and clear memories. Hated to see this magnificent hotel destroyed and the grounds ruined for nothing other than a shopping center. Exactly what Bangkok didn’t need.

    My husband and I spent our honeymoon there 41 years ago. It was a wonderful, romantic way to start our life together, we have some great memories which cannot be destroyed, unlike the hotel. The restaurant served the best seafood I’ve ever had, with it’s central circular counter and the seafood freshly cooked and served in the wicker baskets. The gardens were beautiful. The Siam Intercontinental Hotel was part of Bangkok’s history and heritage, how on earth could they demolish it – for a shopping mall !!!
