Singapore will gain a new Hilton hotel in early 2022, and it’s set to become the brand’s Asia-Pacific flagship, with over 1,000 rooms, five restaurants and bars and, of course, snazzy suites.

Located in the middle of the Orchard Road shopping strip, the Hilton Singapore Orchard is in fact a $90 million make-over of the Mandarin Orchard Singapore.

An extensive refurbishment will precede the rebranding, which will be underpinned by new meeting facilities to meet growing demand for regional and global conferences, including three ballrooms.

The Mandarin Orchard Singapore will become the Hilton Singapore Orchard.

Work is scheduled to begin by mid-year, as the current low levels of occupancy across Singapore “present a timely opportunity for us to carry out extensive renovations” explains Tan Shu Lin, head of Mandarin Orchard owner OUE Commercial.

“The rebranded hotel is expected to be ready in time to take advantage of the sector's anticipated recovery."

First up will be a phased renovation of the Main Tower guest rooms and lobby, plus development of new meeting spaces. A second stage of works, due to begin by year’s end, will see an upgrade of the Orchard Wing rooms and the construction of an Orchard Wing club lounge and gym.

The Hilton Singapore Orchard will be Hilton’s fourth property in Singapore, complementing the original Hilton Singapore, in the busting downtown district ear the end of Orchard Road; the Conrad Centennial Singapore at Marina Bay; and the Hilton Garden Inn Singapore, in the heart of Little India.

As previously reported, Hilton is now extending the status of all Hilton Honors Silver, Gold and Diamond members for up to two years, while also pushing back the expiry date of Hilton Honors points and the availability of Weekend Night Rewards.

Hopefully they sort out the naming - the current Hilton Singapore is also on orchard road and very close by. Imagine how confusing it will be to a taxi driver, esp given orchard road is difficult to do a U turn being so busy!

That's a very good point! Fortunately if you are using Grab you enter the address in advance. I have given up on taxis in Singapore unless I am in a rush. Grab can also be much faster from Changi, there can be a queue of people waiting for the taxi,.

I'm looking forward to this, I like to stay at Hiltons but the Hilton Singapore has seen better days and its location is at the wrong end of town, unless you like visiting OT of course! This new Hilton will be well away from the crowded end of Orchard Road and better placed for actually doing business as well as enjoying a little shopping if that's your thing.
