Space efficient rooms, modern décor and new F&B offerings make this 5-star Hotel as iconic on the inside, as it is outside
Luxurious weekend breaks for two available from SGD 795++
Singapore Marriott Hotel, best known for its iconic green pagoda roof at the corner of Scotts Road and Orchard Road has completed a SGD 35 million refurbishment, bringing a new level of luxury to one of the city’s best loved properties.
As the most extensive project of its kind in the hotel’s 17-year history, all guest rooms have been overhauled to offer guests more efficient use of space with newly installed bathrooms and ergonomically optimized furniture. Most notably two new room categories have been introduced for the discerning business and leisure traveller: Premier Deluxe Rooms and Studio Rooms.
The once traditional hotel lobby has been converted into a warm and welcoming open plan zone while Marriott Cafe boasts a sophisticated new ambience, extended seating and open kitchen block. A brand new F&B concept, Java+ completes the refurbishment.
“We are extremely pleased with the results of six months of hard work,” said Mr. Thoo Kah Fah, Chief Operating Officer & Executive Director of Tang Holdings who funded the project.
“Singapore Marriott Hotel is now fresh and contemporary bringing it in-line with the city’s newest openings. It is a major milestone and we look forward to the next chapter of growth as Singapore’s premier address.”
Singapore Marriott Hotel opened in 1995 and since has been the recipient of a number of awards and accolades. A total sum of SGD 130 million has been invested into the upkeep of the property, in turn offering visitors the 5-star experience they expect from the Marriott brand.
This latest renovation, undertaken by world renowned design team, Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA) gives the hotel a new lease of life with décor that is classic yet contemporary using neutral colours and bold accent fabrics.
Rooms have been fitted with state-of-the-art furnishings including two signature 1956 leather Eames Desk Chairs. Bathrooms now come with large walk-in rain showers as well as extended vanity areas and technology upgrades include a 46-inch Samsung Full-HD Smart TV in every room.
At Marriott Cafe, 10 chefs take centre stage at one of Singapore’s largest open kitchen blocks to serve up a highly curated menu of quality dishes from the East and West, buffet style, while Crossroads Cafe has taken on a new colour palate with well stocked wine fridge and ambient lighting to create a relaxed yet chic atmosphere, with daily blackboard specials.
The Hotel’s newest F&B addition, Java+, is where one enjoys life at its finest. The premium retail deli outlet sells imported products from around the world including high quality cured meats, cheeses and fine wines. Java+ is the ideal spot to unwind over a glass of wine and authentic Spanish tapas, or take away a wide range of sandwiches and coffees, as well as freshly-baked pastries and heavenly cakes for all occasions.
Commenting on the refurbishment, General Manager of Singapore Marriott Hotel, Mr. Antony Page, said “The needs and wants of today’s mobile businessmen and women have been central to our decision making process. We set about creating sophisticated and spacious rooms, paying close attention to the details that a modern-day traveller would appreciate. For example, in our refurbished Junior Suites, tech-savvy travellers can enjoy 55” LCD high-definition televisions and digital plug-in panels, in addition to completely separate living spaces for entertaining and relaxation.”
