Crowne Plaza Bangkok to become Holiday Inn

Travel News Asia 24 June 2003

The Crowne Plaza Bangkok, a popular hotel on Silom Road in the heart of Bangkok, is to be rebranded as a Holiday Inn, changing its name to Holiday Inn Silom, Bangkok. The change will be effective July 1st, 2003.

The Crowne Plaza Bangkok, owned by the Harilela Group of Hotels which owns three other Holiday Inn's - one in Singapore, one in Penang, and the other in Hong Kong, is one of the largest properties in Bangkok with 724 rooms.

The hotel recently completed major refurbishments to the guestrooms in the Plaza Tower and General Manager, Mr. John Roozemond said that the change of brand is in no way a downgrade as the hotel is investing US$10 million in refurbishments to the lobby, meeting rooms, public areas and the Crowne Tower.

InterContinental Hotels Group has already confirmed it is to open an InterContinental Bangkok and another Holiday Inn when it fully takes over the management of Le Meridien's two hotels in the city. This rebrand will leave IHG without a 'Crowne Plaza', their second highest luxury brand, in Bangkok.
