The caretaker government has imposed a State of Emergency in all districts of Bangkok and neighboring areas effective Wednesday, 22 January 2014. The State of Emergency is to last 60 days and allows authorities to impose curfews, set up checkpoints and restrict political movements and gatherings of more than five people.
The restaurants, bars and all event facilities inside the hotel premises will be opened for business until further notification. The protests have been disruptive however most offices and business are operating regular hours except around the protest areas and some government offices. Thailand’s international and domestic airports, and mass transportation systems, such as the BTS SkyTrain and MRT subway, are all operating normally. Don Mueang Airport and Suvarnabhumi International Airport are also open as normal.
Road accessibility to and from the hotel remains open. Road restrictions are around the key protest sites only.
Guest safety is the hotel’s primary priority and security levels on the hotel premises remain at the highest level. There are security check points at every entrance and exit around the hotel premises including the car check at the entrance to the hotel’s car park. The hotel’s management also continues to monitor the situation closely and will do all it considers necessary to ensure the safety of all guests and the hotel’s associates.
