BANGKOK, Dec. 21, 2010 -- Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts® is making its brand debut in Bangkok, in the heart of the city's central business district.

The property is a short distance from the prestigious Siam Paragon Mall, Bangkok Convention Centre, Chulalongkorn University and a vast variety of retail, dining and entertainment options in the Silom area. And next door to the property are two key public transport options - the Sala Daeng sky train and the Silom subway - both providing quick, easy access to the rest of the city.
A feature of the Crowne Plaza Bangkok Lumpini Park is the dedicated meetings spaces on the 21st floor of the hotel, offering natural daylight and flexible set-up options together with the Crowne Meetings team offering personalised services.
Guests can also enjoy a range of upscale dining and leisure options within the hotel, including five food-and-beverage outlets, extensive banqueting facilities, a resort-style pool and a spa.
