IHG is set to rebrand the 386-room Grand Sukhumvit Bangkok hotel to the Crowne Plaza Bangkok Grand Sukhumvit by the end of 2021 following a refurbishment project. 

The hotel company is also planning to add additional rooms to the property by 2023 which it says will make it the country’s largest Crowne Plaza hotel and the flagship for the brand.

“With a philosophy of building hotels for the future, the new-look Crowne Plaza focuses on a fresh era of connection and productivity with design aspects focused on moving guests seamlessly between work and downtime,” reads a statement from IHG.

The hotel will also feature the ‘Plaza Workspace’ – a new take on the traditional hotel lobby – which IHG says will “afford residents and visitors the chance to feel just as comfortable catching up on some work as they do enjoying a coffee over a meeting or socialising with friends”.

Crowne Plaza Bangkok Grand Sukhumvit will have a ballroom, boardroom, and four meeting rooms, an Executive Club Lounge, two dining outlets, swimming pool, fitness room and a spa.

Situated 30 kilometres from Bangkok’s international Suvarnabhumi Airport, the hotel is conveniently located near the Nana BTS Station, offering easy access to embassies and corporate offices, as well as nearby shopping, dining, and entertainment amenities, says IHG.

IHG has 31 hotels in Thailand operating under seven brands: Six Senses, InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, and Staybridge Suites, with another 29 in the pipeline, which includes brand entries for Kimpton and Voco.
