Best Western Opens First Hotel in Laos
Bangkok (January 13, 2010) - Best Western International announces the opening of its first hotel in Laos, the Best Western Vientiane Hotel. Located in the capital city Vientiane, the hotel is the first in the chain’s plans for a network of strategically located Loas hotels. Other planned locations include Luang Prabang, Champasak, Xien Khouang and Bokeo.
Located next to the Mekong River, the hotel is ideal for those seeking tranquility, while boasting the convenience of being close to the city’s business and commercial areas, main markets, restaurants and attractions. Wattay International Airport is just 10 kilometers away.
“We are very excited to open this property in Laos as a new territory for Best Western,” said Best Western Vice President International Operations Asia Glenn de Souza. “Laos has become an increasingly attractive tourist destination and has considerable potential to develop much further. This underlines the need for the international standards of accommodation for which Best Western is recognized as an industry leader.”
Best Western Vientiane Hotel’s facilities include a restaurant, fitness room, swimming pool, business center and recreational area.
