Who are they?
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.
