The Radisson on soi 13 is a nice property which was recommended by one of our drinking buddies who usually stays there. It is an Agoda 5-star rated property, but my opinion is that it is a 4-star property.  Although it does not feel as luxe as a Westin, Sheraton Grande, or one of the other chains, my friend who stayed in another room and I thought it was much more than adequate.
The suite was spacious and includes an office area with a large desk (which is more than adequate to do all your business), a living room, a kitchenette, and a separate bedroom and bathroom.  The kitchenette has a full sized refrigerator, microwave, bar sink, dining table for two, large desk, and living room which seats 4 people with a 48″ flat screen TV. Wifi is free. The bedroom also has its own TV, and the electronic safe (approx. 12″x20″x6″) can easily hold a large laptop and more cash than you need for your multi-million baht drug deals.
A breakfast buffet was included in the price of the room.  The “Aromas” dining room is on the first floor, seating around 40 people, but can be expanded to seat maybe 150 if necessary, by spilling into the adjacent bar and floor areas.
The selection of breakfast items – fruits, juices, pastries, cereals, eggs and bacon, chicken and pork sausages, soups and entrees with sides – is more than anyone should eat in a day. Every day they have different featured soups, fried rice, and Indian entrees (the hotel is Indian-owned).  They also have many vegetarian items in their selection. Strange to me is that their salad bar, though complete with side vegetables (shaved carrots, sliced cucumbers, sliced onions, etc.), condiments, and dressings, lacks lettuce. Maybe they do not bring it out at breakfast which is the only meal we have eaten there.
