Starwood Hotels & Resorts has announced the opening of W Bangkok, marking the brand’s entry into the Thai capital.
Located at the intersection of Sathorn and Narathiwas roads, the new hotel is contained within a modern, 31-storey glass and steel tower, but also includes a century-old heritage building that used to serve as the Russian embassy.
W Bangkok houses 407 guestrooms and suites in the two distinct buildings, including ten Marvelous Suites, four Duplex Suites, a Wow Suite and the W brand’s signature Extreme Wow Suite.
Guestrooms have been designed in gold, blue or magenta jewel tones by floor, with a high contrast of ambient and direct lighting, colored glass panels and accessories to create mystique and illumination.
Each guestroom features custom-designed chrome furniture and technology including 40-inch flat-screen LED televisions and jack pack stations with a sound systems and docking stations for MP3 players.
Facilities at the hotel include a fitness centre, spa, swimming pool, business centre and 1,000m² of meeting and event space.
It will also offer a range of F&B outlets including the brand’s signature Woo Bar, W Lounge, poolside dining, and a second floor restaurant with an open kitchen.
W Bangkok is Thailand’s first urban W Hotel, following the 2010 opening of W Retreat & Spa Koh Samui. The hotel marks the 44th W Hotel globally.
