Bangkok residents will no doubt remember the Grand Tower Inn on Soi Thonglor that has been around since the 1980s.

Having undergone a major renovation and rebranding exercise, the newly named 17-storey Hotel Verve opened last month and offers 300 guestrooms.

Operated by Grand Tower Enterprise Co, the hotel boasts an all-day-dining venue S-SEN Brasserie & More and soon to come are a rooftop indoor/outdoor onsen, loft-style co-working area, well-equipped meeting spaces ideal for small and informal gatherings, a 24-hour fitness facility, and a premium yakiniku restaurant.

The striking new look retains elements of the hotel’s 30-year heritage yet within a fully updated environment. Architects and designers have taken inspiration from Japanese architectural and interior components as well as other Asian motifs to create a more open setting, complementing the hotel’s soothing atmosphere. New focal points include pebble gardens, interior flowing water features, wall murals depicting mountain vistas and sun-ray scenes, along with beguiling art objects such as raindrop-shaped lamps.

The S-SEN Brasserie & More on the hotel’s second floor serves international cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner in a stylish yet relaxed ambience. 

There are two meeting rooms configurable for business gatherings and small-scale conferences. Both rooms are on the hotel’s third floor. Verve Meeting I at 86 square metres provides seating for 34 persons in a boardroom configuration, while Verve Meeting II at 28sqm can accommodate 12 persons within a boardroom layout.

On the second floor, Loftimus, a modern co-working space, provides ample space and the necessary amenities for getting work done. As its name suggests, the space features a loft-style setting and includes 20 individual work desks as well as five separate work rooms suitable for groups of up to six persons. Loftimus also can host events of up to 20 guests. It offers high-speed internet and business services including printing, Smart TVs in each room, stationery trolley plus food & beverage services. 

A special opening rate with a 30-per-cent discount off normal rates is available through June 30 for a stay period until July 31. Guests can book online at using the promotional code “HVIP”.
