I had a quick 2 night stay at the BYD lofts after a few days prior at the Marriot in Surin.
I can honestly say that the BYD was one of the nicest hotels I've stayed at. Stylish, funky, and fantastic facilities in the room. The top of the line sound system provided us with some solid pre drinking sounds before we hit the debortuary of Patong! The staff were also extremely helpful, and spoke perfect english. I also hit the hotel restaurant a few times, and must say that it was also some of the best food I ate during my Thailand tour. Well played all around!!
