I am getting the early morning train to Chiang Mai from Bangkok. I want to stay near the main train station in Bangkok. Can you suggest somewhere good to stay?

A really good place to stay near Hualamphong (the main train station in Bangkok) is the Shanghai Mansion Boutique Hotel. Rooms cost from 3,335 THB a night.
Location of the Hotel
It is located on the Yaowarat Road about 900 metres away from the station. The Yaowarat Road is the most famous street in Bangkok’s China Town.
The Shanghai Mansion Boutique Hotel is, as the name suggested, themed around its location China Town. The rooms, and the hotel in general, have been really tastefully decorated in 1930s Shanghai style, which is a mix of Art Deco and tradition Chinese style dark woods and furnishings. The rooms all have four-poster beds.
I Like the Jazz Bar
The hotel facilities are pretty good. Nice bar and nice restaurant. They have a Jazz Lounge where you can listen to the live music every night and drink cocktails. All pretty good fun.
