Hilton has signed a management agreement with Thailand-based real estate developer Lucky Living Hospitality Co., Ltd. to launch its Canopy by Hilton lifestyle brand in Thailand. 

The hospitality giant, which celebrated its 100th anniversary last month, will manage the new-build, 176-room Canopy by Hilton Bangkok Sukhumvit when it opens in 2022. The property will be less than an hour’s drive from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport and a short walk from the Asok BTS Skytrain, as well as less than two kilometers from several major embassies.

“We are committed to growing our brand presence across Asia-Pacific, and bringing Canopy by Hilton into a top travel destination such as Bangkok will be a tremendous addition to our growing portfolio,” said Gary Steffen, global head, Canopy by Hilton. “The city has seen an exponential growth in tourist arrivals in recent years and we know, from interacting with our guests, that many are on the lookout for accommodations that allow them to experience the destination as a local, which is exactly what Canopy by Hilton will offer in the Sukhumvit neighborhood.”

Over the next three to five years, the company will open five additional hotels in the country, including the DoubleTree by Hilton Bangkok Ploenchit and DoubleTree by Hilton Phuket Banthai. Both will open later this year.
