The Pullman brand continues its expansion in Asia Pacific with the signing of the Pullman Bangkok Grande Sukhumvit. The former Grand Millennium Sukhumvit Bangkok will rebrand to become the third Pullman in the ‘City of Angels’ and adds 325 rooms to the upscale hotel brand.

“The Pullman Bangkok Grande Sukhumvit is a terrific addition to the network, providing stylish, upscale accommodation designed for today’s sophisticated traveller,” said Michael Issenberg, Chairman and CEO AccorHotels Asia Pacific. “The hotel boasts an unbeatable location, outstanding meeting facilities and modern restaurants that make it popular not only with guests but with Bangkok locals.

“Bangkok holds a special place in the history of the Pullman brand as we opened our first Pullman there – the Pullman Bangkok King Power back in 2008. To add our third Pullman in Bangkok – at a time when the brand has over 55 hotels in the region - is testament to how well the brand has been embraced by travellers and owners alike over the years.”

The hotel features a sail-shaped glass fa├žade, a range of room styles from deluxe rooms to executive suites and a presidential suite as well as two restaurants, a deli lounge, a cocktail bar, outdoor pool, gym and spa. Ten meeting rooms including a pillarless grand ballroom for up to 500 guests offer varied possibilities for functions.

Sukhumvit is one of Bangkok’s most famous streets and also the longest road in Thailand. The Pullman’s position at Asoke (Soi 21) puts it right in the centre of the action. It is moments from Asoke BTS, Sukhumvit MRT and the Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre, making it perfect for business travellers.

The announcement comes just days after AccorHotels rebranded the Prince Hotel & Residence to Pullman Kuala Lumpur City Centre. Pullman has a strong pipeline of over 40 hotels in the next few years in Asia Pacific and will continue to expand aggressively, the company said. Pullman is now the largest five-star hotel brand in Australia and the fastest-growing AccorHotels brand in China.
