With these openings, the business plans to introduce two new brands in the country: Autograph Collection Hotels and Moxy Hotels.
“Our growth in Thailand signifies the trust hotel owners and franchisees have in Marriott International and their overall confidence in Thailand’s tourism industry. Leveraging Thailand’s strong hospitality sector, the Thailand Government’s spotlight on the industry, and Marriott’s commitment to excellence, we remain laser-focused to continue to meet the increasing travel demand with our expansion plan,” said Jakob Helgen, Area Vice President of Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia & Myanmar, Marriott International.
Sheraton Hotels & Resorts, Marriott Hotels, Marriott Executive Apartments, Westin Hotels & Resorts, Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts, and Renaissance Hotels are among the established premium brands that Marriott International continues to expand in Thailand.
