This partnership marks the expansion of the Holiday Inn Express & Suites brand in the country and serves as the first joint venture between IHG and A.P.K Real Estate Co., Ltd.

Chanprakaisi also emphasized IHG’s commitment to expanding their portfolio in Thailand, highlighting the existing six Holiday Inn Express properties and an additional 10 properties in the pipeline. Holiday Inn Express & Suites Bangkok Asok will be the second of its kind in the country, following the soon-to-open Holiday Inn Express & Suites Bangkok Central Pier.

A.P.K Real Estate Co., Ltd President Suthin Jiramaneekul expressed excitement about venturing into the hotel market with the renowned Holiday Inn Express brand. With over three decades of success in the residential market, Jiramaneekul acknowledged the value that the suites category would bring to leisure and extended-stay guests. The collaboration with IHG Hotels & Resorts was seen as an opportunity to ensure a successful return on investment, leveraging IHG’s expertise and the global reputation of the Holiday Inn Express brand.

Strategically located on Sukhumvit 23, Holiday Inn Express & Suites Bangkok Asok will be conveniently situated near Sukhumvit MRT station and Asok BTS station interchange, providing easy access for travelers. The hotel will also be in close proximity to various retail and entertainment complexes, including Terminal 21 and EM District, catering to both leisure and business guests.

Holiday Inn Express is the largest hotel brand globally, with more than 3,000 properties in over 50 countries, boasting over 327,000 rooms. Designed for smart and savvy travelers, the brand offers a hassle-free basecamp where guests can recharge before continuing their journey. The Holiday Inn Express experience focuses on delivering the essentials with exceptional service, including the signature Express Start Breakfast.

In the Southeast Asia & Korea region, there are currently 22 open Holiday Inn Express properties, with the recent addition of Holiday Inn Express & Suites Singapore Novena in May 2023.
