Dusit Thani Bangkok - Is it Really Going to Close?

[HD video and podcast below] Is the Dusit Thani Bangkok closing, or not? If it is closing, when will it close and is that date final - or could it change again?

Steven Howard of sat down with Khun Titiya Xuto, Vice President Operations Thailand and General Manager of the Dusit Thani Bangkok, on 5 July 2018 to ask her these questions and many more.

We discuss the new date which the hotel is set to close and you will learn what the hotel has planned for guests between now and then.

Khun Titiya also tells us about the hotel's plans for a lavish New Year's Eve party, how they are motivating staff when everyone knows that the property will close in just a few months time, and what the new Dusit Thani Bangkok will be like.

We also talk about F&B operations, and you will learn how Dusit is going to keep some of its hugely popular restaurants like Mayflower, Benjarong and Thien Duong open even while the hotel is being destroyed and the new one built.

Khun Titiya tells us how Dusit would like to position the new hotel, whether it will compete against the world's biggest luxury brands such as Ritz-Carlton, Waldorf Astoria and Four Seasons, or will it settle for a position slightly below that.

We also ask whether the new hotel will be an all-suite property and even if there is a chance of two hotels - such as a Dusit Thani and a D2 - in one building - a common trend with some hotel companies. All this and much, much more in the HD video and podcast below.
