News release placeholder

Holiday Inn Express Don Mueang will be the first international hotel brand with direct connectivity to Don Mueang Airport

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG®) today announces the signing of a management agreement with Ambience Rangsit U Co.,Ltd. to develop the 228-room Holiday Inn Express Don Mueang Airport.

Set to open in 2022, the hotel will be built next to the Lak Hok Train Station, one stop away from Don Mueang International Airport and 20 km from the city centre. As part of the Thai government’s expansion plans, the new Terminal 3 at Don Mueang Airport is scheduled to open in the same year, and has been designed to service the growing number of passengers.

Providing guests with everything they need and nothing they don’t, the hotel will offer a convenient stay which includes:

  • Free and fast Wi-Fi in guest rooms and throughout the hotel so they stay connected all day, every day
  • Free Express Start™ Breakfast or a Grab & Go option for a smart start to the day
  • A comfortable and restful sleep with high quality bedding and a choice of firm or soft pillows
  • Self-service laundry room for their everyday needs
  • 24-hour fitness centre to indulge in their fitness regime any time
  • Meeting room

Clarence Tan, Managing Director, South East Asia & Korea, IHG, commented: “Bangkok was where the Holiday Inn Express brand was launched in South East Asia back in 2012. Since then the brand has grown from strength to strength in the capital, across Thailand and globally. We always look for the right partner and the right location to grow our brands and are delighted to be working with Ambience Rangsit U Co.,Ltd. to open Holiday Inn Express close to Bangkok Don Mueang.”

Commenting on the partnership, Tanit Winyoopradist, Managing Director, Ambience Rangsit U Co.,Ltd., said: “It’s important for us to have the right brand offering travellers transiting or travelling from the airport exactly what they need – a fuss-free, convenient stay and great night’s sleep. IHG has had great success, and we look forward to delivering great guest experiences to even more people when the expansion of the new terminal is complete.”
