Marriot Hotels has announced its latest Bangkok location with the opening of Bangkok Marriott Hotel The Surawongse.
Owned by TCC Land Asset World, the five-star hotel is located on Surawongse Road, which is traditionally known as a ‘heritage destination’ with easy access to cultural attractions such as Neilson Hays Library, Bangkokian Museum and the Sri Maha Mariamman Temple. However, with galleries like the Rotunda and hipster hangouts such as The 88 on Surawong springing up, it has also developed a thriving social and art scene.
“Bangkok Marriott Hotel The Surawongse expands Marriott Hotel’s presence in Bangkok and offers experiences to inspire both international and domestic travellers to travel brilliantly,” said Mike Fulkerson, vice president of brands & marketing in Asia-Pacific for Marriott International. “Its modern design, dynamic meeting spaces and creative dining venues will attract both international visitors and local residents.”
The 32-storey building has 303 rooms, featuring deluxe guestrooms including presidential suites and extended stay apartments with one, two or three bedrooms. All guestrooms and apartments are completed with clean, contemporary lines reflecting Marriott’s modern design concept which ‘harnesses the balance of function and style’.
The Bangkok Marriott Hotel The Surawongse is also totally primed for the MICE industry – essential for any forward-thinking hotel, especially in a city like Bangkok.
Featuring 1,555 sqm of event space, two ballrooms, nine meeting rooms, a colonial-style courtyard and an outdoor garden, all backed up by an events team comprised of photographers audio-visual technicians, carpenters and decorators, it has an infrastructure which will satisfy even the most demanding of event planners.
“Leisure and business travellers will enjoy our timeless Thai hospitality right in the heart of Bangkok,” said George Varughese, general manager of the Bangkok Marriott Hotel The Surawongse. “Our unique location close to city’s main attractions and within an emerging creative neighbourhood will provide guests with fresh and immersive experiences of Bangkok.”
