The sultry Thai capital will soon get its very own W hotel. And from the looks of its Twitter page, the month of July has been all about “casting” (or “recruiting/hiring” in W Hotels speak). Come December 1, 2012, the W Hotel Bangkok will bring its signature Whatever/Whenever service and happening bar scene to Thailand, where the W’s resort property, the W Retreat Koh Samui- has already been turning heads.
The W will be located in a new skyscraper on the site of the old Russian Embassy near the city’s Embassy Row in the Sathorn business district; expect to find a Living Room and Bliss Spa along with a restaurant serving up Thai cuisine. The 403 guest rooms will come with the signature W bed and Munchie Box, of course. Also be on the look-out for the opening of the W Singapore - Sentosa Cove this fall.
