BANGKOK, THAILAND -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/14 -- Now in its 12th year, TripAdvisor's annual Traveller's Choice awards highlight the best in the world of hospitality and travel. Among the latest winners for the 2014 awards is the Mayfair, Bangkok - Marriott Executive Apartments, which ranked in top 25 hotels for family over several thousand hotels in Thailand.
This Bangkok hotel near Skytrain station was the only in the city to be recognized for its family-friendly features, including a kids' area and saltwater rooftop pool at the 24-hour health club, plus a wide variety of kids menu at Mayfair Bistro.
Hang around in the lobby long enough and you will see a family-like familiarity between guests and staff as they exchange greetings and share jokes with each other. This kind of treatment is perhaps typical of the warmth of Thai hospitality but rarely evident to such a familiar degree in many of the other well-known luxury hotels.
"This award is a great honor," says Supap Sirins, General Manager of this Bangkok city Centre hotel. "Our team works tirelessly throughout the year to provide guests with the best experience possible. We are delighted that our guests truly experience our brand and its service, family-oriented facilities, and our professional team of staff."
Award winners are determined by evaluating reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor users around the globe. "We're excited to recognize the world's best properties based on the opinions of those who know them best," Barbara Messing, Chief Marketing Officer for TripAdvisor, says. "For those seeking inspiration for their 2014 travel planning, this list of spectacular accommodations that received 2014 Travellers' Choice awards is a perfect place to start."

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
