the caption reads “elegant reception”. That’s elegant? Boring, outdated (similar to the old InterCon hotels in Germany) and where the colour ? There are so many more elegant hotels in Singapore and with over 1000 rooms, this is not a choice of hotel for me. ...

Accor “tightens its grip on the luxury hotel market”. They have a long way to go to get anywhere near the standards of Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental, Ritz Carlton and the likes. Accor can buy up the hardware but it’s their 3-4star upbringing and mentality t...
