Accor to manage Star Convention Centre in Thailand

Accor has signed an agreement to manage the 571-room Star Convention Centre in Thailand.

The Star Convention Hotel will be rebranded to Novotel Rayong Star Convention Centre in 2020 and will undergo a major renovation of its public areas, dining outlets and 235 guestrooms in the first phase followed by another 336 guest-rooms in the second phase over the next two years.

“We’re very excited to have the Star Convention Hotel join the Accor network and to grow our portfolio in a city like Rayong,” said Accor’s Patrick Basset.

“We believe that the Eastern Seaboard, including provinces like Rayong, Chonburi, Trat, with the upcoming high speed train route will offer excellent development opportunities in the future. Guests can look forward to the natural and intuitive design of the Novotel brand and relax in the comforting and energising spaces.”

The hotel is situated in the hub of one of Thailand’s major agricultural and industrial provinces and is approximately 2.5-hour drive from Suvarnabhumi International Airport and 1-hour drive from U-Tapao International Airport.

“The signing of our partnership with Accor also reflects our confidence in Rayong’s tourism industry and the East Economic Corridor Policy,” said Phisamai Supanuntaroek, director of Star Convention Hotel.

“We look forward to working with the Accor team to unfold a new chapter of Star Convention Hotel’s legacy.”
