Plaza Athenee hotel in Bangkok that has been part of Starwood’s Le Royal Meridien brand is switching to Luxury Collection (under SPG too) on October 6, 2017.
The hotel has gone significant renovations and I already noted that this brand change would happen on my Fabulous Fridays post about this hotel back in April this year (read more here).

I have been to Plaza Athenee already several times this year after skipping it for years. It had become dated but I really like the décor after renovations and Platimum benefits as they are now. The service has been very good too.
Not sure if Starwood/Marriott is going to retire this Le Royal Meridien sub brand that is left from the times when the brand was acquired. There are Le Royal Meridiens left in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Shanghai that I have been to (probably somewhere else too).
