Nearby highlights include the Erawan Shrine, the Gaysorn Village mall, plus connections to Bangkok’s mass transit system. The hotel features 171 residential-style guestrooms and suites; three unique restaurant concepts, a lounge and two bars; and a pool that offers views of the city’s skyline.
“This Waldorf Astoria is set to redefine luxury in the bustling city of Bangkok,” said Dino Michael, global head, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, in press materials. “From its inspirational design, its culinary offerings and our True Waldorf Service, The Waldorf Astoria Bangkok will be one of the most remarkable hotels in our entire portfolio.”
The LAs Vegas property will come to life as the Mandarin Oriental Las Vegas is converted to the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas Hotel & Residences. When completed, the hotel will feature 392 guestrooms and 225 residences, including 55 suites and three expansive Presidential Suites in a luxurious, non-gaming, non-smoking environment. The Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas will also include Twist, a restaurant by Michelin-starred chef Pierre Gagnaire; the SkyBar located on the hotel’s 23rd floor; the Tea Lounge, which offers afternoon tea paired with views overlooking The Strip; and a 27,000-sq.-ft. spa.
