hotel experiences

JW Marriott hotel in Bangkok, US$99: very good. Big, well-appointed room, super comfy bed, great hot water supply for shower, strong air conditioning, friendly attentive staff, excellent concierge, cheap ethernet, short walk to Phloen Chit skytrain station (where you can go from Phloen Chit to Mo Chit in air conditioned comfort ;-)

Pan Pacific Hotel in Singapore, US$88: I cancelled since it's under extensive renovation for the next 6 months. No wonder they had a good rate.

Swissotel Stamford in Singapore, US$100: not so great. Big but uninspired room, very nice city views, extremely UNcomfy bed, flow-controlled trickle of a shower, expensive but slow ethernet, they sent someone else's luggage to my room.
