THE WORLD’S LARGEST MERCURE HOTEL OPENS ON SINGAPORE’S HIP CLUB STREET

by admin worldtourismchannel

SINGAPORE : Mercure, a midscale brand from global hospitality leader
Accor, announces the opening of Mercure ICON Singapore City Centre. Featuring 989
thoughtfully designed rooms, this newly built hotel is the largest Mercure hotel in the world.
At Mercure hotels, guests can immerse in a locally inspired ambiance where every detail
reflects the distinctive characteristics of the destination. Drawing inspiration from the
nearby Chinatown’s colourful façades and the urban vibe of its central business district
location, the hotel’s design creates a stimulating sense of space that embodies the
neighbourhood’s heritage-rich surrounds. This design approach is expressed in the hotel’s
expansive lobby with a LED mural and artworks of the iconic shophouses by local artist
Ripple Root.
Ideal for leisure seekers and business travellers alike, the guestrooms provide a cosy retreat
from the city’s hustle and bustle, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows or balconies. All rooms
are equipped with eco-conscious amenities, including filtered water dispensers and
biodegradable bathroom amenities.

Mercure ICON Singapore City Centre stands out as a culinary destination on Club Street,
offering six distinct dining experiences. Chara Brasserie, an all-day dining restaurant,
specialises in authentic Mediterranean buffets alongside Asian and Pacific favourites. At the
hotel lobby, Klara Café and Bar offers a fusion of international and local delights, coupled
with specially crafted cocktails and drinks.
Debuting in Singapore is L’antica Pizzeria da Michele, a renowned establishment from
Naples – a Michelin Guide-listed restaurant that was featured in the ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ movie,
drawing long lines for its signature Margherita and Marinara pizzas in Naples. Helmed by
veteran French Chef Michael Muller, La Table d’Emma offers a blend of Alsace traditions
and classic French cuisine in ‘La table d’amis’ – or ‘the friends’ table’ – fashion.
Guests can enjoy sushi at Ashino, craft beer at Upward Taproom, and homegrown coffee at
TAG Espresso, which are opening later in the second quarter of 2024.
The hotel’s Landscape Deck is an oasis of wellness and serenity, where guests can enjoy an
invigorating dip in the swimming pool or rejuvenate their mind and body at the tranquil
wellness deck. Fitness enthusiasts are catered for with a well-equipped gym.
Mercure ICON Singapore City Centre invites guests to an unparalleled adventure right at
their doorstep, where the charming shophouses of Club Street, Ann Siang Hill, and Duxton
Hill offer a blend of exquisite dining and vibrant street art. Steps away, the alleys of Telok
Ayer and Chinatown allure with authentic hawker fare. The hotel’s convenient location
offers seamless access to Chinatown and Telok Ayer MRT stations, with the city’s attractions
effortlessly within reach. Enhancing the experience, guests are treated to a complimentary
Chinatown Food and Heritage Walking Tour, offering a deep dive into the locale’s culinary
and cultural heritage.
Garth Simmons, Chief Operating Officer of Accor’s Premium, Midscale, and Economy
Division in Asia, commented: “Singapore continues to captivate visitors with its rich
cultural heritage and vibrant energy. Mercure ICON Singapore City Centre, with its locally
inspired design, experiences, and culinary offerings, ensures that every stay reflects the

proud achievement for Accor in Asia. We invite travellers to embark on a journey of
