From Don Mueang Airport, take the taxi at Exit 8. The taxi fare goes by meter but you will need to pay the toll charges too. The total fare should be around 300 baht.
From Suvarnabhumi Airport, you can take the Airport Rail Link and alight at Ratchaprarop station and walk to the hotel (about 15 minutes). As the road is a bit rough along the way, I'd still suggest that you take the taxi if you have a luggage with you.

Free WiFi login/password is provided when you check-in the hotel.
The room at Centre Point Pratunam is spacious, you can add a bed in the room.
Very convenient if you wash the plates or cups in the room, need not to wash them in the toilet.
Amenities like the shampoo, shower gel and lotion are generously provided. Others like the toothbrush, shower cap, cotton buds are also given.
Fridge and microwave are available in the room. According to @peamamaaa, she mentioned that it is very useful for mothers who are still breast-feeding and didn't bring along their LO (little one), could freeze the breast milk on their own.
Coffee packets and mineral water are provided too.
You could also use the safe box and umbrella.
Found these interesting phrases provided by the hotel, you can learn some Thai phrases before shopping!

The toasted garlic bread tastes real good and super addictive. I could finish the small packet with no additional assistance. Small packet for 40 baht and big packet for 60 baht.
We placed an order of 25 small packets two hours before we check-out. They delivered to the hotel at a delivery charge of 450 baht. Not too expensive if you share the delivery cost among your friends and the toasted garlic bread is worth it.
