Hilton Hotels has signed a management agreement with real estate company AP Prime Property Company to convert the former Grand Ayudhaya Hotel into the 608-room Hilton Bangkok Ratchada by 2022.
The hotel, which will be the Hilton brand’s largest property in Bangkok yet, is located on Ratchadapisek Road, close to commercial buildings and landmarks. The larger vicinity has also been earmarked as one of Bangkok’s rising business and financial districts.
Following the refurbishment, the hotel will feature an executive lounge, an all-day dining restaurant, a Chinese speciality restaurant, a café and bar, as well as a selection of spacious meetings and events venues.
“Bangkok is a key regional business hub and has long been an established destination for leisure travellers, as well as a venue of choice for meetings and events. Combined with the government’s direction for the Ratchadapisek area to be the next business and financial district in Bangkok, the upcoming Hilton Bangkok Ratchada will be in one of the most coveted addresses for businesses in Bangkok when it opens,” said Guy Phillips, senior vice president, development, Asia & Australasia, Hilton.
