The Hilton Singapore has refurbished its rooms and suites, as well as the Executive Lounge and key function areas of the Orchard Road landmark. The refurbishment was directed by noted international hospitality designers Bent Severin and Associates, known for their work with leading hotel chains and airlines around the globe.
Hilton Singapore General Manager Alain Mahillon said that the makeover incorporated smart design solutions for the aspects most appreciated by executive guests such as lighting, the inclusion of stylish and ergonomic work spaces, and a technology upgrade that includes the fastest hotel broadband available and large 37” LCD televisions. “The look and feel of the executive rooms has also been transformed with extensive use of Sycamore veneers, blond, silk-textured wallpapers and stunning stitched leather headboards, ensuring a light and welcoming ambience for executive guests from the first moment of their stay,” Mahillon said.
Bent Severin used sophisticated lighting systems through adjustable LED reading lamps and concealed back-lighting that creates a ‘floating effect’ for the LCD television sets and dimmable Artemede light sculptures, “Chimera”, to set the mood after dark.
Exclusive La Source bath and body care amenities by Crabtree & Evelyn are provided in every room. This range, only offered at Hilton hotels across Asia, includes La Source moisturizing soap, shampoo, conditioner, relaxing body wash, body lotion and bath salts.
Additionally, guests at the Hilton Singapore will not have to lose sleep ever again over how to set the alarm clock. With a custom designed Hilton Alarm Clock featuring one of the easiest-to-set alarms ever and a connection cable for MP3 players and other portable music devices, guests can now listen to their own favorite music in the room without having to rely on ear phones or portable speaker systems. Bringing the comforts of the home to the hotel room, guests should be able to sleep more soundly.
Other functional areas of the Hilton have enjoyed a similar transformation, and an entirely new function area has been added. The remodeled Hilton Executive Lounge also picks up the lighter color palette used throughout the rooms and has added space for luxurious furniture and a fully serviced black-granite buffet area ensuring continuous food and beverage service amid the quiet luxury of the lounge.
The new Panorama function room - located on the 24th floor - can accommodate up to 240 guests or, equally, has the flexibility to divide into four smaller rooms. Ivory-colored walls and drapes coupled with a panoramic view of Orchard Road offer a simple yet elegant setting for meetings, conferences and dinner parties.
The Grand Ballroom with a capacity of 600 persons has been re-dressed for the many important occasions that grace its floors, featuring fabric padded walls in warm metallic hues amid faux Alabaster columns and a feature wall. New carpets, elliptically shaped mouth-blown Chili-shaped glass light shades and motorized ripple fold snow coloured velvet drapes complete the picture of sophistication.
“Hilton Singapore has enjoyed a great deal of positive feedback from the changes to date, and we look forward to extending the makeover to the remaining hotel facilities in the year ahead,” Mahillon said.
