The Sofitel So Bangkok recently opened in Thailand, and is offering "80 Dollars, 80 Days," now through May 18, which gives guests an $80 credit per room, per night for the first 80 days of its opening. The credit can be spent at any of the new 30-story hotel's restaurants, bars or So Spa. The credit extends to room upgrades as well, and can be accumulated during the same stay.

The new hotel overlooks the city's Lumpini Park and has 238 rooms with themed decor centered around five elements: Water, earth, wood, metal and fire. The water-themed rooms, for example, feature bathtubs offering front-on scenic views of the city. The hotel also has a chocolate boutique, infinity swimming pool overlooking the city, and So Spa, which resembles a mythological forest. The hotel is also said to be the first one in Asia to offer a fully connected lifestyle, with all rooms and suites equipped with fully integrated Apple Mac mini Solution technology and free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. Other in-room benefits are free private bar, his-and-hers amenities and Illy espresso machine in So Comfy or higher room categories.

Rates at the hotel start at $165 a night. For information visit http://www.sofitel.com/gb/hotel-6835-sofitel-so-bangkok/index.shtml
