Park Hotel Group reveals the first look of its flagship hotel Grand Park City Hall. Located on Coleman Street in the heart of Singapore’s Civic District, the luxury hotel is in the final phase of its transformative masterplan which is scheduled to complete by the third quarter of 2018.The 343-room Grand Park City Hall hotel including its modern European Tablescape Restaurant & Bar are a part of Park Hotel Group’s upcoming mixed-use lifestyle precinct comprising City Hall Square, a new dining, shopping and entertainment destination that is set on the conservation site of St. Gregory Place.
Allen Law, Chief Executive Officer, Park Hotel Group says, “Grand Park City Hall, our new jewel in the crown, is a spectacular juxtaposition of modern technology and heritage-influenced art and design. The hotel is a testament to our commitment to deliver exceptional hospitality and travel experiences for our guests by empowering them with digital innovation and giving them a sense of place through our inspiring interiors.”
Grand Park City Hall is piloting the mobile application that allows guests to skip the queue and front desk following a digital check-in and go straight to their room with their digital key. Industry regulations and practices currently require hotel guests to provide their personal identification documents such as passports at hotel front desks even after digital check-in. With the new Grand Park City Hall application, this authentication process can be easily completed by guests taking a selfie on their mobile phones.
Influenced by Grand Park City Hall’s historical location, the new hotel interiors and spaces are presented with a mix of neoclassical designs blended with clean lines to create a balance between the old and new. Incorporating Peranakan pattern tiles, vintage statement pieces and artwork of local landmarks, the interiors celebrate the modern and contemporary city with mirrored imagery that evokes the sensation of a futuristic world; a counterpoint to the rich past and multiplicity of cultures of Singapore.
Following the completion of 186 brand new rooms, the final phase of transformation will feature an additional 157 guest rooms and suites, a new gym facility, a new swimming pool as well as a new rooftop garden event space.
