Since opening its first property in Thailand with DoubleTree by Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok in 2013, the brand eyes additional development this year as the country continues to see healthy year-over-year growth in both tourism and business travel.
Accommodating business travellers visiting Embassy Row or leisure travellers looking to immerse themselves in Thai culture, DoubleTree by Hilton Ploenchit will open its doors in Bangkok’s city centre with close access to one of the area’s vibrant neighbourhoods.
The brand also recently opened DoubleTree by Hilton Phuket Banthai Resort, an idyllic tropical getaway to Thailand’s southern beaches that contrasts the bustling metropolitan north and is situated on the turquoise waters of the Andaman Sea.
“Asia Pacific continues to be an integral part of the DoubleTree by Hilton growth story, especially during the brand’s 50th anniversary year. In addition to these new properties, we are slated to open close to 100 DoubleTree hotels throughout the region in the coming years, totaling more than 24,000 rooms,” said Shawn McAteer, global head and senior vice president, DoubleTree by Hilton.
