Singapore: IHG to Launch New InterContinental Hotel

Singapore – InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), will launch InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay – the second InterContinental Hotel in Singapore.

Located along the prominent Singapore River, the 225-room InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay is part of RB Capital’s “Robertson Quay Project” to rejuvenate the area into a vibrant riverfront destination for both tourists and residents. The hotel, which will be on the current Gallery Hotel site, will open in 2016.

When complete the new luxury hotel, designed by award-winning architecture firm SCDA Architects, will sit atop a mixed use development comprising restaurants, bars and lifestyle retail outlets. Its strategic location in the heart of the city – in close proximity to the world-renowned Orchard Road shopping area, heritage district of Chinatown and the country’s central business district – adds to the appeal of InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay for both business and leisure travellers.

Jan Smits, Chief Executive, Asia, Middle East and Africa, IHG, said: “Singapore still has immense growth potential as a travel destination. It was recently named Asia’s best tourism and aviation hub by the World Economic Forum and with the upcoming development of Changi Airport’s fourth terminal projected to boost passenger capacity by another 16 million a year, the country is poised to capitalise on the region’s continued booming tourism.”

IHG currently has six hotels (more than 2,200 rooms) open across four brands in Singapore: InterContinental Singapore, Crowne Plaza Changi Airport, Holiday Inn Singapore Orchard City Centre, Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium, Holiday Inn Express Singapore Orchard Road and Holiday Inn Express Singapore Clarke Quay.
