The 386-room Grand Sukhumvit Bangkok is currently managed by Accor. I spent two nights here last October and was surprised with how big and spacious the rooms were albeit run down and in much need of refurbishments.
InterContinental Hotels Group has signed an agreement with Sukhumvit Centre Point Co. Ltd to take on the management of Grand Sukhumvit Bangkok hotel in 2021.
Thankfully it will undergo extensive refurbishment and rebrand as Crowne Plaza Bangkok Grand Sukhumvit by end of 2021. By end of 2023, additional rooms will be added and will become Thailand’s largest Crowne Plaza hotel as well as the flagship for the brand.
The new look Crowne Plaza focuses on a fresh new era of connection and productivity with dwsign aspects focused on moving guests seamlessly between work and downtime.
A ‘Plaza Workplace’ will take over the traditional hotel lobby. The surroundings will give residents and visitors the chance to catch up or work. Other amenities in the hotel will include a ballroom, boardroom and four meeting rooms.
The hotel’s signature WorkLife guestrooms help guests relax and recharge. There will also be an executive club lounge, two dining outlets, swimming pool, fitness room and spa.
IHG has 31 hotels in Thailand operating under seven brands including Six Senses, InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express and Staybridge Suites with another 29 in the pipeline which includes brand entries for Kimpton and voco.
