ACCOR will this year open its first ibis Styles hotel in Singapore, called ibis Styles Singapore, where the former Hotel Windsor used to stand at the corner of MacPherson and Aljunied Roads.
ibis Styles is one of Accor's economy brands. The 298-room hotel, with a ship-like exterior, is set to open in Q4 2015.
The hotel will be complemented by MacPherson Mall, which is part of the same complex. The hotel's amenities include a 25-metre free-form swimming pool on the fourth floor, as well as a restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating, a pool bar, modern gym and a water feature. Its interiors have also all been refurbished with innovative designer furniture.
The hotel will provide a free shuttle service to MRT stations and some attractions. The shuttle route will be determined later.
The hotel is owned by LVND Hotels, a consortium made up of Lian Huat Group, the listed Nobel Design Holdings and 2E Capital, which chose the ibis Styles brand because of its strong design appeal and affordable offering.
