Bangkok, Thailand, February 16, 2023 / TRAVELINDEX / Best Western Hotels and Resorts (BWHR) has expanded its footprint in Bangkok with the opening of Best Western Chatuchak, an exciting new hotel that puts guests just steps from the iconic Chatuchak Weekend Market, in one of the city’s most exciting emerging districts.
Perfectly positioned in North Bangkok, just 100 meters from Kamphaeng Phet MRT subway station, Best Western Chatuchak is easily accessible from all parts of this dynamic city. Krung Thep Aphiwat Central Terminal, Bangkok’s new main rail terminal, and Don Mueang International Airport are just a short distance away, making this a convenient place to stay for domestic and international travelers alike.
Guests can unwind in a selection of 192-stylish rooms and suites, each of which comes fully equipped with signature king or twin beds, contemporary interiors, a working desk and views of the city. Modern amenities include a 43-inch HDTV and entertainment system, complimentary Wi-Fi, and a bathroom with a rainfall shower.
Best Western Chatuchak is set to become a major hub for meeting planners. This highly accessible hotel features world-class function space including a naturally-lit ballroom with 280 square meters of pillar-free floorspace and soaring 8.4-meter-high ceilings, allowing it to accommodate 300 guests. This sophisticated venue also extends out onto a 3,200-square meter outdoor terrace and garden, which sets the stage for glamorous alfresco receptions, and a separate meeting room can accommodate up to 100 people. This makes the hotel ideal for all types of corporate and social gathering, including weddings. The excellent local transport and large onsite parking lot mean that all delegates can come and go with ease.
“We are delighted to introduce Best Western Chatuchak to our guests from around the world. Located on the doorstep of Chatuchak Market, which attracts more than 200,000 visitors every weekend, this is a great option for retail lovers and culture seekers. It will also become an important venue for conferences, events and weddings, establishing a new frontier in Bangkok’s thriving meetings, incentives, conferencing and exhibitions (MICE) sector. Just moments from Krung Thep Aphiwat Central Terminal and fully connected with urban transport links, Best Western Chatuchak represents another important milestone in the development of this up-and-coming urban district,” said Olivier Berrivin, Vice President of International Operations – APAC, BWH Hotel Group®.
