Sindhorn Midtown Hotel Bangkok

IHG Hotels & Resorts and Siam Sindhorn Co., Limited have chosen Sindhorn Midtown Hotel Bangkok as the first Vignette Collection hotel to open its door in Asia.

Located in the bustling city of Bangkok, the hotel’s location at Langsuan offers convenient access to prime districts such as Sukhumvit, Silom, Siam and Chidlom. The property offers a one-of-a-kind stay, creating a sanctuary in the heart of Bangkok by blending elements of the city into the guest experience.

Designed by Eight Inc., contemporary design, laidback elegance and the striking local art come together at Sindhorn Midtown. Even though lobby space is minimalist, the hotel is committed to supporting Thai craftsmanship with for example textile masterpiece by Thai artist, Kachama Perez. Shiny strands of recycled aluminum are woven between the indigo threads, depicting the negative human impacts on marine life.

Vignette Collection hotels prioritise creating a sense of place. With this in mind, local design studio, P49 Deesign used the story of the Bangkok Tram to enhance the design of the hotel’s lobby area. Dark metal symbolised tram tracks that previously ran by the hotel and is applied to the front desk.

Each of its 393 rooms feature large format bathroom amenities from Karl Lagerfeld and modern comforts such as Fritz Hansen’s iconic Drop chairs. The Fitness Centre offers panoramic city views, as does the Horizon Pool, which is located on the 18th floor.

Regarding the F&B offer, the hotel recently introduced three new eclectic dining offerings. The Black Cat is an atmospheric Thai Liquor bar, with live band playing on selected evenings. Inspired by the golden age of Thailand, Bangkok’78 presents the city’s greatest culinary hits in a retro-inspired concept, whilst Sip & Co. is a chic addition to Langsuan’s flourishing café culture.

It has truly been an honour to lead the transition from an independent hotel to become the first property under IHG’s Vignette Collection to open in Asia. I am proud of my exceptional team as we bring Sindhorn Midtown into a new era and watch our hotel’s personality shine through with the introduction of our new guest experiences, offering a sense of connection with the heritage of Bangkok.
