Just booked a room with two twin beds at the New Siam Riverside
for Joe and I from Jan 9th to Jan 15th at which time we can re-evaluate the lodging situation as folks arrive or between now and January.

I did not opt for the hotel shuttle service (about 925 Baht) since Joe and I are going to have to meet up at the airport and who knows when that'll happen since we are on two different airlines. If they are both reasonably on-time we will have no problems. Besides, research shows a typical:
Suvarnabhumi Bangkok International Airport (BKK) - Central Bangkok: 200-400 baht, plus highway tolls of 70 baht
