Suvarnabhumi Archive for December, 2008
Novotel Suvarnabhumi Airport Hotel Bangkok Thailand has announced a new hourly room rate to provide flexibility for transit travellers and to position itself as a leading transit hotel.
Available immediately, Novotel Suvarnabhumi Airport Hotel is offering accommodation on an hourly basis with a minimum stay of two hours at the rate of Thai Baht 2,000.Â An additional hour will be charged at Thai Baht 500 per hour up to a maximum of six hours per stay.Â Check-in is conveniently accepted anytime during the day. A shuttle bus to the hotel is available 24 hours a day.
Tristan Beau de Lomenie, the Novotel Suvarnabhumi Airport Hotel Bangkok‘s general manager, said the week-long closure of Suvarnabhumi Airport sent its occupancy down to only 10%, compared to 80% during normal times.
“Our hotel business will face difficulties next year. Thailand is now facing two crises – the global economic crisis and local political instability. We can’t stay without doing anything, otherwise we will lose,” he said.
