A lot of the $200/night places are kind of old anyways. Like there are nicer rooms in the newer $70/night hotels anyways. I wasn't impressed with the rooms at The Peninsula but the rooms obv have great views.
In other news, I just got a tour of the new Marriott serviced apartment building on Suk 24 and the rooms were very nice. Restaurant downstairs is very good too. If any of you ballers wants to stay there long term I can prob get you a decent deal. 2 bedrooms were spacious and 108k baht/month. 3 bedrooms aren't finished yet but will occupy the top floor, penthouse style, at like 165k/month.
