Dusit International has announced plans to expand into the USA, with the introduction of its dusitD2 hotel brand in Pasadena, California. The 136-room dusitD2 pasadena will also become the first 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.
Chanin Donavanik, Dusit’s Chief Executive Officer, said; “Our launch into North America marks an exciting milestone for Dusit International. Pasadena is a unique city and known for its historic architecture and the restored craftsman-style homes, unique small businesses, as well as being home to many scientific and cultural institutions. 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.”
