Dusit aims to crack America
Published on Jun 22, 2011
Dusit International has announced plans to expand into the US, with the introduction of its dusitD2 hotel brand in Pasadena, California. The 136-room dusitD2 pasadena will also become the fi rst dusitD2 outside Asia when it opens in Q3 2012 following a major renovation. The heritage-listed property will form part of a downtown mixed-use development which will include the hotel, offices, retail and restaurants. “Our launch into North America marks an exciting milestone for Dusit International,” said Chanin Donavanik, Dusit’s CEO. “We believe that our stylish dusitD2 brand and the warmth of Thai hospitality will quickly make dusitD2 pasadena the place to be and pave the way for Dusit’s future expansion into this region.” The contemporary dusitD2 brand currently has just two properties in Thailand, but new additions are expected in New Delhi and other major gateway cities from next year onwards.
