Best Western International, operator of the Best Western hotel brand, has taken over the management of a riverside hotel in Cambodia’s Phnom Penh.
The hotel is situated on the banks of the Tonle Sap River, and caters to both business and leisure travellers.
Best Western International Asia and Middle East international operations vice president Glenn de Souza said: "Our expansion in the ASEAN region continues at pace, and I am delighted to be able to welcome guests to yet another thriving regional capital, Phnom Penh.
"This exciting city is fast becoming a regional hub for business and leisure travel, and the position of the Best Western River Palace Hotel means we are now at the very heart of Phnom Penh’s growth."
The hotel’s 59 rooms and suites – many of which overlook the river – feature free Wi-Fi and walk-in showers, among other amenities.
It houses two F&B outlets: Palace Seafood Restaurant for Khmer and Western cuisine, and the Riviera Lounge Bar.
It also features a fitness centre, a spa offering Cambodia’s only Turkish hammam, meeting space and VIP rooms, and a business centre.
Best Western River Palace Hotel will be the company’s second hotel in Cambodia, following the Best Western Suites and Sweet Resort Angkor in Siem Reap.
Presently, Best Western provides marketing, reservations and operational support to over 4,000 independently owned and operated member hotels in 80 countries and territories worldwide.
