SINGAPORE, 10 JULY 2023 – Pullman Hotels & Resorts, Accor’s pioneering design-led brand for the global nomad finds a new home in Singapore’s downtown core: Pullman Singapore Hill Street is poised to be the perfect playground for cosmopolitan travelers. With its forward-thinking approach that centralizes experiences and productivity into a singular interconnected property, expect the true hallmarks of Pullman—opulent, innovative, adventurous, and geared for peak performance—with exceptional dining experiences and pioneering partnerships that will make it the new place to be and to stay in Singapore.
“At Pullman Singapore Hill Street, we aim to offer our travelers a new, fun and immersive hotel stay in an incredible city like Singapore, and what can position us as a multi-faceted playground”, says Mazen Abilmona, General Manager, Pullman Singapore Hill Street. “Whether it’s our stylishly designed rooms, exquisite dining options, experiences and thoughtfully curated partnerships, we have put personality and hyper-connectivity at the forefront to demonstrate what truly made Pullman Hotels & Resorts legendary back then, while reaffirming its status today”.
Energizing Stays For The Performance-Minded
A brand-new property built on the site of the old Telephone House; Pullman Singapore Hill Street was designed by the award-winning DP Architects. 350 Art Noveau-inspired rooms and suites are dotted across the building’s U-shaped formation, which will offer guests varying views of surroundings–from the lush Fort Canning Park to the majestic views of Marina Bay–each thoughtfully designed with spatial considerations for optimal relaxation.
All rooms and suites come equipped with in-room sensors, a Smart TV and an intuitive ordering system that enables in-room dining with just a quick scan of a QR code, ensuring that all functions are accessible within one’s fingertips for seamless stays. Upholding Pullman’s holistic approach, the hotel also comes with innovative spaces that include lounges intended as multi-functional work or leisure rooms, a 24-hour Power Fitness for guests to stay on track with their health and training goals, and a swimming pool with cabanas to luxuriate in, all within the hotel’s 3rd floor for an easy transition between business and fun.
World-Class Culinary Journeys
Pullman Singapore Hill Street will be home to three distinct dining concepts that are an open invitation for guests to indulge and imbibe.
Madison’s is a New York deli and restaurant hybrid conceptualized to complement Pullman’s American origins with the nostalgia of dining at a buzzy railway junction. Offering a modernized spin on classic American cuisine, the menu is brimming with comfort foods—for dine-in or via a grab-and-go kiosk—that include breakfast spreads, hearty burgers, and sandwiches alongside a selection of homemade pastries paired with coffees or teas for a morning or midday recharge.
Perched atop the hotel and flanking the rooftop swim-up bar is El Chido, a free-spirited Mexican bar reminiscent of the vibrant open-air beachfront bars along Mexico's coastlines. Chido means “cool” in Spanish, a trait expressed as a lively escape where hotel guests or drink-seekers can unwind over contemporary Mexican cuisine and refreshing craft cocktails against the city breeze, with views overlooking Marina Bay Sands. Designated as the hotel’s hotspot for poolside parties, guests can look forward to a regular weekend roster of DJs on deck duties with smooth tropical tunes to groove the night away.
Hidden in plain sight behind a nondescript door is MOGĀ, a modern Japanese Izakaya meets speakeasy bar inspired by 1920s Japan and the Prohibition Era. Seductive and stylish with an ambience paved by music that gets bolder and louder into the night, MOGĀ is where the bon vivants gather to uncover inventive shared plates as well as creative libations created by Knox International Beverage Consulting.
Integral to the new Pullman property is its partnership-forward philosophy in a bid to elevate and localize experiences. Situated on street level is a Grab & Go kiosk where coffee culture pioneers Sarnies serve up fresh brews, best paired with Singapore’s best sourdough baked by Starter Lab Bakery as well as hearty deli fare from Madison’s for those in need of a quick bite. Other partnerships include customized fitness programs structured by the highly experienced personal training specialists at Strength Clinic Academy and a Signature Afternoon High Tea anchored by Dilmah’s exquisite tea blends with a luggage-themed presentation in a nod to Pullman’s storied history.
Crossroad To Discovering Singapore
Centrally located, Pullman Hill Street is marked as the ideal base for the city’s visitors—no matter the agenda for the day. On foot for local adventures, the hotel is a short walk to the bustling entertainment and nightlife in Clarke Quay; museums and heritage sites including the world-class National Gallery Singapore and Esplanade; and calming walks in nature at Fort Canning Park. Business travelers, on the other hand, will find key commercial districts just a stone’s throw away with proximity to Suntec City Convention, Marina Bay Sands and Raffles Place. With just a 5-minute walk to the nearest train station and interchange (City Hall MRT Station), guests will find themselves at the crossroads where they can easily commute from one destination to another.
In line with Pullman’s flair for personalizing journeys, guests are welcome to seek out Pullman Porters at the Porter Lounge. Decked in a full uniform adapted from the original ensemble, the Pullman Porters of today serve as the hotel concierge who will curate customized recommendations and spark ideas based on preferences or the day’s desires.
Conceived as a modern interpretation of the brand’s 150 years of travel history, every hotel under the Pullman Hotels & Resorts brand is designed with an ethos to move travel experiences forward. The new Pullman Singapore Hill Street is set to pave itself as the premier playground geared for today’s travelers with core pillars of performance, wellbeing, exploration, art, as well as meaningful and intuitive design.
