InterContinental Hotels Group® (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, has signed a management agreement with Origin Property Public Company Limited to bring Staybridge Suites to Southeast Asia. The all-suite extended stay brand will launch in Thailand – Staybridge Suites® Bangkok Thonglor in 2019, in association with Nomura Real Estate Development Company Limited and Staybridge Suites® Chonburi Siracha in 2020.
Joining 250 Staybridge Suites properties worldwide, both new hotels will offer the brand’s hallmark of a warm and residential environment for extended stay guests. Travellers can look forward to the facilities of a hotel and the comfort, functionality and visual appearance of a 'home away from home.
Commenting on the milestone, Rajit Sukumaran, Chief Development Officer, Asia Middle East Africa, IHG, said: “We are delighted to work again with our partner Origin Property Public Company Limited to expand our portfolio of differentiated hotels brands regionally. With the rising demand for long-stay accommodation in Bangkok and Siracha, this represents an excellent opportunity for us to introduce Staybridge Suites. Longer term, we are excited about the potential to expand the brand further across the region.”
A convenient stay in the heart of Bangkok’s vibrant Thonglor neighbourhood
The 303-room Staybridge Suites Bangkok Thonglor will be situated along the Thai capital’s main Sukhumvit Soi 55 road, a 10-minute walk from the Thonglor BTS station. Thonglor is a popular area amongst locals, expatriates and tourists alike with its wide selection of trendy dining options and close proximity to high-end retail malls including EmQuartier and Emporium.
Unparalleled access to Siracha’s key business and lifestyle offerings
Situated in Siracha, home to numerous leading industrial estates and two of the busiest container ports in Southeast Asia, the 400-room Staybridge Suites Chonburi Siracha will be an ideal option for long-stay business guests. Located along the main Sukhumvit Road directly opposite Tukcom Siracha IT Mall, the hotel will also offer convenient access to other retail outlets nearby, including Robinson Department Store and Aeon Siracha Shopping Centre.
The hotels will feature all-day facilities such as a business centre, fitness room, and pantry. Guests can also look forward to opportunities to socialise with colleagues or other guests, at The Evening Social. These weekly events offer complimentary refreshments and create a relaxing and community vibe at shared spaces within the hotel.
The developers, Origin One Company Limited (“Origin One”) and Origin One Thonglor Company Limited are a subsidiary (“One Thonglor”) of the well-established Origin Property Public Company Limited, listed on the Stock Exchange of Thailand. Origin One also owns Holiday Inn & Suites® Siracha Laemchabang, which is due to open in 2020.
