The 1st Waldorf Astoria in Southeast Asia
Thailand - The first Waldorf Astoria hotel in Southeast Asia will be located in Bangkok, offering event marketers and planners two spacious ballrooms and nine meeting rooms as venue options associated with the luxury brand.
A management agreement signed between Hilton Worldwide and Magnolia Finest Corporation will see a 170-room Waldorf Astoria Bangkok launch in 2015 as a 60-storey property.
The hotel will be situated along Ratchadamri Road within close proximity to popular shopping complexes such as Central World and Siam Paragon.
Andrew Clough, senior vice president of development for Middle East & Asia Pacific at Hilton Worldwide said the property which marks the entry of Hilton's fourth brand in Thailand will offer one of the largest hotel rooms in Bangkok.
The development of Waldorf Astoria Bangkok follows the currently trading Conrad Hotels & Resorts and Hilton Hotels & Resorts branded properties.
The first DoubleTree by Hilton property is also expected to open in Bangkok next year.
