Crowne Plaza Bangkok Rama 9 will be located in a mixed-use development - Siamese Rama 9 - which features high-end apartments, office space and a mall. It is just 25kilometres from Suvarnabhumi International Airport and 22km from Don Muang International Airport, offering easy connectivity for visitors through the local road network and proximity to the upcoming MRT Orange line.

The hotel will showcase the Crowne Plaza brand's focus on the era of connection and productivity, enabling guests to seamlessly move between work and downtime. It will welcome leisure and business travellers alike, with a choice of dining outlets, meeting rooms, a fitness centre, swimming pool and picturesque rooftop garden.
The centrepiece of the hotel is the 'Plaza Workspace'- a new take on the traditional hotel lobby - providing an inspiring and comfortable space for guests to work, have a meeting or socialise with friends.
