Said the General Manager Mr Marcel Sawyere "Located just a short drive from Bangkok's airports, with easy access from the expressways and lots of under cover parking, and with the adjacent Huay Kwang MRT Station providing such quick and easy access to all parts of the city â€" including Queen Sirikit Convention Centre - Swissôtel Le Concorde Bangkok is ideally located for both the International and Local MICE Markets.
Add to that the incredible selection of Meeting Rooms which we have, including one of Bangkok's largest and tallest pillar less Ballrooms, and you will understand why we have identified MICE as one of our primary potential Markets.
With the recent and planned development in the Ratchadapisek area, including new Shopping Malls and Office Buildings and not least the planned relocation of the Stock Exchange of Thailand to the area, the facelift also aims to make the property more competitive in the local F&B Market and to broaden the appeal of its rooms.
"The time is entirely right for this repositioning" said Mr Sawyere
"The whole Business dynamics of the area are changing and Swissôtel Le Concorde Bangkok
is determined to maintain and cement its position as the leading property in the area.
We aim to be ready to serve and exceed the fast growing needs and expectations of Business, MICE and Leisure visitors.
This initiative is designed to attract a wider and a more diversified clientele.
We are anxious to grow our business from all sectors and especially to develop business from new and emerging Markets", added Mr Sawyere
Possessing great confidence in the future of Thailand's Tourism business, Le Concorde Hotel has been quietly acquiring land in a number of beach destinations, and apart from the renovation of its flagship Bangkok property, this year has allocated a budget of Bht 2.4 BN for two luxurious 4 stars plus projects in Pattaya / Jomtien and Trad, revealed Mr Sawyere.
Said Mr Sawyere
"Le Concorde Hotel
has tremendous faith in Thailand's Tourism future and is embarking upon this ambitious campaign of renovation and expansion in order to be ready for the expected upsurge in business and to ensure that we are ready to provide the world class services and facilities that these new markets will expect".
We believe there is a need to ensure both the business and leisure travellers are able to stay connected through the Wi-Fi internet service during their trips," said Mr Marcel Sawyere, General Manager.
"Waiving in-room internet fees could have an immediate effect in a surge in guest experience and satisfaction levels, and ensure good traveller satisfaction.
We are also replacing a new 40 inches LCD TV in all Club Floor rooms"
