Opening in 2018, the 200-room Holiday Inn Express & Suites Bangkok Soi Soonvijai will feature a range of rooms and long-stay suites, on the doorstep of Bangkok General Hospital.
“We’ve been seeing encouraging signs of recovery in Bangkok’s tourism industry – once again proving the city’s resilience – and this includes the city’s growing position as a medical tourism destination,” said Leanne Harwood, IHG’s vice president of operations for Southeast Asia.
“There is no better time to be looking at developing a hotel near one of the main hospitals in Bangkok and adding an extended stay option to the new hotel is a strategic decision.
The development will include features such as the brand’s ‘Great Room’ concept, a fitness centre, swimming pool and recreation areas. All guests will be offered free breakfast and Wi-Fi.
Thailand is IHG’s biggest market in Southeast Asia, with 17 properties across five brands: InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express and Hotel Indigo. The company has a further nine hotels in the pipeline in the country.
