Worldwide Hotels Group CEO Carolyn Choo said: “We are thrilled to expand our working relationship with Accor, who are a strong partner for us.

Guests at the hotel will be able to enjoy the gastronomic and entertainment scene in Singapore, explore old temples and shops, and try local food at nearby restaurants and hawker centres.

The hotel is also close to two transit stations, Chinatown and Telok Ayer, making it easy for guests to reach the CBD, popular shopping areas, and local attractions.

Mercure ICON Singapore City Centre will feature a lobby with a video wall.

It will offer different dining options, including the All-Day Dining Restaurant and a lounge and bar for meetings and relaxing.

The hotel will feature a landscaped pool deck and a gym for guests.

Furthermore, it will be equipped with charging areas for electric vehicles.

Accor’s Premium, Midscale & Economy Division in Asia COO Garth Simmons said: “It’s an honour to continue our partnership with Worldwide Hotels Group with the signing of Mercure ICON Singapore City Centre.

“Mercure stands as gateways to exploration, igniting a sense of local discovery from the very moment guests step through the doors.

“Being locally inspired is at the heart of the Mercure experience, where each of our hotels boasts a charming character reflective of its neighbourhood.

“Located in one of the most happening neighbourhoods in Singapore, and with a wealth of world-class exceptional experiences, the hotel demonstrates our shared commitment to providing genuine hospitality experiences.”
