Who are they?

Business Traveler (USA) - - SPECIAL REPORT -

Launched in Hong Kong in 1961 with a Tsim Sha Tsui ho­tel – which still stands to­day – the Park Ho­tel Group moved its head­quar­ters to Sin­ga­pore in 2005. Fol­low­ing this, the company ex­panded rapidly, se­cur­ing eight wholly owned and man­aged prop­er­ties within four years. It is now look­ing for­ward to the open­ing of its first ho­tel un­der man­age­ment con­tract in 2015, the Grand Park Alexan­dra.

They are mainly in Sin­ga­pore and China at the mo­ment, with one ho­tel in Ja­pan. The prop­er­ties are Grand Park Or­chard, Grand Park City Hall and Park Ho­tel Clarke Quay in the Lion City; Grand Park Kun­ming, Grand Park Wuxi and Grand Park Xian in China; the Park Ho­tel in Hong Kong; and Grand Park Otaru in Ja­pan. To­gether, they com­prise 2,500 rooms.

The cur­rent col­lec­tion is a mix of new builds and es­tab­lished ad­dresses which have been re­vi­tal­ized with con­tem­po­rary fur­nish­ings and state-of-the-art tech­nol­ogy. The 308-room Grand Park Or­chard Sin­ga­pore, which opened in 2010 after emerg­ing from the makeover of the for­mer Park Ho­tel Or­chard, is the flag­ship prop­erty. Use of the word“Grand” sig­ni­fied the group’s foray into the lux­ury sec­tor, with its orig­i­nal “Park”la­bel cater­ing to the up­scale sec­tor.

Yes. Grand Park and Park ho­tels are all sit­u­ated in the heart of com­mer­cial and leisure precincts. All Grand ho­tels (ex­cept Otaru and Hong Kong) boast Crys­tal Club floors, which come with ex­ec­u­tive perks, and pack­ages for business trav­el­ers are reg­u­larly of­fered, with free In­ter­net as one of the high­lights.

Park Ho­tel’s In­dul­gence card of­fers event, room and F&B pro­mo­tions, but only at the Sin­ga­pore Grand prop­er­ties. All Grand ho­tels, ex­cept Otaru, boast Crys­tal Club floors of­fer­ing ex­ec­u­tive perks, in­clud­ing ben­e­fits like free In­ter­net.
