Travel News 13 Sep 2017

InterContinental Hotels Group has debuted the group’s first hotel in Rayong, Thailand, with the opening of a 288-room Holiday Inn & Suites Rayong City Centre in the heart of the city.

It is also the first internationally-branded hotel in the City.

The hotel is just over 30 minutes from U-Tapao Rayong Pattaya International Airport and easily accessible via major roads.

Strategically located close to some of Thailand’s major industrial parks and seaports, the hotel offers 64 longer-stay suites in addition to its 224 well-appointed guest rooms.

Holiday Inn & Suites Rayong City Centre caters to business travellers working at or near industrial areas such as the Eastern Seaboard Industrial Park or Map Ta Phut Industrial Park but with Rayong – the gateway to island destination Koh Samet, leisure guests will also enjoy the hotel’s convenience.

“Rayong is one of Thailand’s fastest growing provinces and a booming industrial hub. In the last few years, we have seen a growing demand for internationally branded mid-scale accommodation from travellers, who want a comfortable stay close to the industrial areas and ports. The launch of a Holiday Inn branded hotel right in the city centre enables us to cater to these travellers who want to stay with an international hotel brand that they know and trust,” said Leanne Harwood, Vice President of Operations, South East Asia and Korea.

“We are proud to be the first internationally-branded hotel in Rayong and confident that our guests will value the comfortable, convenient and welcoming experience promised by the Holiday Inn brand. We anticipate strong flows of corporate guests mid-week, whilst serving as a popular weekend hotspot for Bangkok residents and its surrounding areas,” Ian Pirodon, General Manager, Holiday Inn & Suites Rayong said.

Holiday Inn & Suites Rayong City Centre joins 21 other IHG hotels in Thailand across five brands. The group is planning to open another five Holiday Inn branded hotels across the country over the enxt three to five years.
