Park Hotel Group has unveiled the revamped Grand Park City Hall, ahead of the hotel’s final phase of transformation scheduled to be completed by 3Q2018.
The 343-room Grand Park City Hall, located on Coleman Street in Singapore’s Civic District, forms part of Park Hotel Group’s upcoming mixed-use lifestyle precinct comprising City Hall Square, a new dining, shopping and entertainment destination set on the conservation site of St Gregory Place.
Following the completion of 186 brand-new rooms, the final phase of transformation will feature an additional 157 guestrooms and suites, a new gym facility, a new swimming pool as well as a new rooftop garden event space.
On the top floors of the hotel, a collection of suites offers private gardens along with in-built Jacuzzis.
Six pairs of interconnecting child-friendly rooms are specifically designed with families in mind, complete with colourful bean bag chairs, an activity desk, a magnetic blackboard wall and rolling paper for kids. Crystal Club guests will also have access to the new Crystal Club Lounge and its privileges.
Influenced by its historical location, the hotel interiors and spaces are presented with a mix of neoclassical designs and clean lines incorporating Peranakan pattern tiles, vintage statement pieces and artwork of local landmarks.
As part of the restoration work, the hotel will also feature new architectural design elements including a new bronze arch gate fronting the entrance to the hotel’s colonial-style façade.
Grand Park City Hall is piloting a mobile application that allows guests to digitally check-in and go straight to their room with their digital key, with the authentication process completed by guests taking a selfie on their mobile phones.
The same application can enable guests to adjust in-room lighting and climate cooling, request for extra amenities such as towels and bottled water, and connect with the hotel’s guest services manager directly.
