The world’s largest Mercure hotel – with almost 1000 rooms – is set to open in Singapore in the first quarter of 2024, following a landmark deal between Accor and Singapore’s largest hotel operator, Worldwide Hotels Group.
The 989-key Mercure Icon Singapore City Centre, located at 8 Club Street, is positioned between the CBD and the city’s historic Chinatown.
Accor’s Chief Operating Officer for Premium, Midscale and Economy Division in Asia, Garth Simmons, said the hotel will offer the perfect base for exploring the city.
“Mercure stand as gateways to exploration, igniting a sense of local discovery from the very moment guests step through the doors,” Simmons said.
“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.”
The hotel will offer a range of dining options including an all-day restaurant, lounge and bar concept, as well as a landscaped pool deck and indoor gym.
The latest deal builds on the partnership between Accor and Worldwide Hotels Group, following the recent signing of Novotel Singapore on Kitchener.
“We are thrilled to expand our working relationship with Accor, who are a strong partner for us,” said Worldwide Hotels Group CEO, Carolyn Choo.
“With Mercure Icon Singapore City Centre, we will continue to create exceptional guest experiences for the informed, cosmopolitan traveller.”
