Yes, made public in early March , but at that time only vaguely saying opening was due in 2018. The next bulletin, from Hilton HQ pressroom (undated), is slightly more specific, saying Q4 2018

This article says it will be on Soi 2, Hilton seals two deals in Thailand | TTR Weekly

Anyone know exactly how far down Soi 2 the property will be?

Using some clues in the Hilton press release, it's likely this property. Just 250 m into the soi.

Duh....I totally missed that point about Majestic Grande Group in the article. Thanks FlytheTail.

This hotel looks about like what you would expect a Doubletree to look like. Will be Interesting to see how much renovation is done.

The hotel now has a website, with reservations to be bookable (not yet available) for stays beginning in March, 2019.

Another reconditioned mid-tier Bangkok property. I guess it's good to have more options, but hard to get excited about this.

I stayed at the smaller Majestic property on Sukhumvit 14-15 years ago, and was impressed with how they operated. I never got to check out their Grande property. Would probably check it out if pricing was reasonable.

Interesting that they call this Ploenchit. Soi2 is normally classed as Nana.

Not that you're wrong but it's probably a question of clientele that they want to attract or, perhaps more accurately, want to be seen to attract.

Yes, I never really considered this area as Ploenchit myself. You will see from the map posted earlier that Ploenchit Center is down the street so I guess it is not totally out of line.........

What category will this be when it opens? They do have an executive lounge and I like this location more than the one by EmQuartier.

The hotel can now be booked for dates in October... But no executive rooms come up, even though suites can be booked. Have they changed their mind about having an executive lounge...?

Doubletree Bangkok Ploenchit now accepting bookings

Award pricing at 25k/night. Just booked a week in February. Hope they actually open by then. 🤔
