Designed by PIA Interior Studio, the Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok offers luxury and an interiors style which plunges guests into the atmosphere of 1930s prohibitionist America, an attestation of how influential New York City is nowadays for world architectural choices.
The hotel’s communal areas immediately broadcast the message of a well-defined positioning: a marked presence of glass, steel, wood and marble which generates a warm ambience. The reverse-gear trip accelerates mightily once you reach the hotel’s restaurant, Scalini, where the menu too harks back to the traditional Italian-American cuisine of the early 30s.
As designer Yutta Yotphonlakit explains, ‘some people have a yearning for the past, the choice of wall decorations with retro graphics evokes nostalgia’ and the ‘presence’ of F. Scott Fitzgerald and the Great Gatsby is carved in stone throughout the hotel, taking on an iconic role.
The Sukhumvit Hilton offers 280 spacious rooms, as well as executive and de luxe suites, conference areas and an exciting, panoramic infinity pool affording a view of Bangkok’s skyline.
The Sukhumvit Hilton is an evocative 5-star hotel that has made brave, definitive choices, adding to the customary high-level service offer also a history content that turns out to be a genuine added value.
