Park Hyatt Bangkok

Earlier this year, we told you about the plans to open a Park Hyatt Hotel in Bangkok, due in 2014 in the above mixed-use building with-a-twist in the central business district.

Just as the year comes to a close, it turns out that Hyatt has further plans for Thailand’s capital with both a Hyatt Regency and a Hyatt Place arriving a few years later in 2017.

With the Grand Hyatt Erawan already open, the group’s selection of brands in the city is nearly complete. So Mister Hyatt, will an Andaz be next? While we wait for that announcement (we just heard about a Tokyo addition), read on for details on the two new hotels.

Hyatt Regency Bangkok, Sukhumvit will be a 300-room hotel, like the Park Hyatt in a mixed-use development with shops and residences. This is the second Hyatt Regency in Thailand, with a sister hotel in the resort destination of Hua Hin. Conference facilities are a focus for the hotel, with over 10,700 square-feet of meeting space, including a ballroom. The usual facilities like a spa, fitness center, and swimming pool will all be there, as well as a club lounge. Getting around town will be easy with the Asoke station of the Bangkok Transit System nearby.

While they share a Sukhumvit Road address, we’re not sufficiently aware of Bangkok’s street naming practices to tell you exactly how far the two hotels will be away from each other. Plus, a quick online map consult didn't clarify much further. Regardless, Hyatt Place Bangkok, Sukhumvit takes the brand’s upscale select-service model to a total of 220 rooms and seven studio suites. The target “multitasking traveler” will find the Cozy Corner, an eight-foot sectional sofa sleeper, as well as the Hyatt Grand Bed, in each of the rooms. An ergonomic work center and plug panel media center should make the business traveler happy. A sky pool, fitness center, multi-cuisine restaurant and bar, as well as meeting facilities will all be available.

Until this slew of Hyatt hotels arrives in Bangkok, we found a Grand King room at the Grand Hyatt Erawan for THB6,600 ($215) on a weekend in January.
