Get ready for the 4 cool hotels opening around Robertson Quay

From a well-known Starwood Hotels & Resorts brand to an F&B group’s first hotel venture, the Singapore River is set to see the opening of four properties in the coming months. Here’s what you need to know.

M Social Singapore

Opening in June this year, this hip boutique hotel by Millenium Hotels and Resorts is targeted at young professionals. Part of an integrated development that also includes luxury apartment project UP@Robertson Quay, the 293-room building houses a stylish communal concept designed by Philippe Starck.
The design-centric hotel features statement sculptures, asymmetrical interiors, gleaming metal touches and loft rooms decked out in a warm color palette, with pashmina throws and thick carpets. State-of-the-art facilities include a self-check-in kiosk, and a complimentary smart phone equipped with a city guide and unlimited data usage. The hotel’s restaurant and bar, Beast and Butterflies, serves fusion food and artisanal cocktails. If you’re a guest, you can also participate in I M Social Series morning tai-chi or yoga sessions at the pool deck.

Four Points by Sheraton Singapore, Riverview

Part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Four Points by Sheraton has earned a reputation for providing the creature comforts of a luxury hotel without the high room rates. Originally the Riverview Hotel, Four Points by Sheraton Singapore, Riverview will open on Jul 1 following a $25 million makeover. The hotel boasts 476 rooms, including nine suites, with views of the city and the Singapore River. Business travelers are well taken care of with premium and deluxe rooms offering spacious work areas and executive suites designed with living rooms suited for private discussions.
Existing F&B tenants Irodori Japanese Restaurant and Imperial Restaurant will continue operations here, joined by Four Points’ signature The Eatery and The Best Brew – the latter serving up a wide variety of beers at the hotel’s riverside terrace.

The Warehouse Hotel

We’ve been waiting for almost a year, but details on the Lo & Behold Group’s first hotel are still limited. What we do know is that they’ve taken over a heritage warehouse building near Robertson Quay which used to be occupied by the 80s haunt Warehouse Disco. The 37-room Warehouse Hotel is slated to open late this year, right next to Four Points, with Lo & Behold also overseeing its restaurant and bar program.

InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay

Singapore’s second InterContinental Hotel doesn’t open until 2017 but it’s definitely something to get excited about. Replacing the former Gallery Hotel, this property is part of an ambitious plan helmed by RB Capital to turn Robertson Quay into a Singaporean version of New York’s West Village. With the InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay and Quayside Promenade as its centerpieces, The Robertson Quay Project will bring 100,000 sq ft of F&B and retail space to the area according to The Business Times.
