Phnom Penh Hotel Opens Under Best Western Name

The giant US-based hotel chain Best Western is opening its first franchise hotel in Phnom Penh.   Best Western Cangi Hotel on Monivong Boulevard near Phsar Thmei will officially open in a few weeks, said Chinese-Canadian owner Richard Cheung. The three-star, full-service hotel will feature 89 rooms at a room rate of $45 per night. “Cambodia is the…last frontier for investors. It will grow faster,” said the veteran hotelier, adding more visitors from the Americas and Europe are expected in the near future. Cheung bought the former Singapore-owned Ho Wah Genting hotel for $100 in January, assuming $600,000 of debt. He said $1.4 million has been invested in the renovation. Best Western is the largest single brand hotel chain in the world, Cheung said, with 4,000 hotels worldwide.
