Crowne Plaza Bangkok now open for business
05 January 2011
InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has announced that the Crowne Plaza Bangkok Lumpini Park is now open for business.
It is IHG’s fifth property in Bangkok.
"It's no secret that we've been looking for the right opportunity to open a Crowne Plaza in Bangkok. This rebranding gives us the chance to launch Crowne Plaza in a great location and a fantastic platform to build this brand in Thailand," Jan Smits, Managing Director of IHG Asia Australasia, said at the time the takeover was announced.
"By next year we will have four IHG brands operating in Thailand - InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express. This puts us on a great path to grow our pipeline in Thailand, and we are looking to double our presence in this market over the next few years," he added.
IHG currently operates nine hotels in Thailand. IHG will be premiering two new brands to Southeast Asia in Bangkok, including Hotel Indigo Bangkok Wireless Road and three Holiday Inn Express properties.
