Grand Park City Hall Singapore in Final Phase of Transformative Masterplan

Park Hotel Group's flagship property, the Grand Park City Hall on Coleman Street in the heart of Singapore’s Civic District, is now in the final phase of its transformative masterplan which is scheduled to be completed by Q3 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.

“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,” said Allen Law, Chief Executive Officer, Park Hotel Group.

Grand Park City Hall is piloting a 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.

In addition, solving one of the worst frustrations travellers have with multiple light switches in hotel rooms, the same phone application can enable guests to adjust in-room lighting and climate cooling.

 Similarly, simple requests for extra amenities such as towels and bottled water can be made via the app.

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.

 Located on the top floors of the hotel, a collection of contemporary suites offer 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 to express their creativity. Crystal Club guests will also have access to the new Crystal Club Lounge with its associated privileges.

As part of the restoration work, Grand Park City Hall will also feature new architectural design elements including an updated driveway and entrance. A new majestic bronze arch gate now fronts the entrance to the hotel’s colonial-style façade, symbolic of the welcoming and attentive service that awaits guests as they step through the doors.
