Sofitel Singapore City Centre

As this is gathering some traction I have started a new thread.

Just came across this:

In conjunction with the opening of Sofitel Singapore City Centre, AccorHotels will launch Club Millésime Prive. Club Millésime Prive will extend to guests exclusive usage of a private poolside lounge that will be located on the executive floor on the upper level of Sofitel Singapore City Centre, elevated VIP service within the hotel premises, as well as exclusive benefits such as private check-in, dedicated butler service and a host of other privileges. For the first time, AccorHotels will offer exclusive membership to a limited number of top executives like chairmen, presidents and CEOs of major corporate tenants of Guoco Tower at Tanjong Pagar Centre. Sofitel Singapore City Centre will feature an 8,600 sq ft ballroom & reception area, eight meeting rooms and offer a variety of dining and recreational options. Sofitel will also collaborate with Virgin Active which will operate a 30,000 sq ft gym with state-of-the art facilities to allow its guests to make use of the gym facilities. There will also be a lawn area at the pool where corporate and private events may be held. In addition, many of the restaurants at the Urban Park on the ground level of Tanjong Pagar Centre, will also offer event facilities.

Opening of this property has been moved to May 2016.

Some updates:

Room picture for the DLX room has now been loaded and all I can say is WOW. http://www.accorhotels.com/gb/hotel-...#section-rooms

Room descriptions also indicate that it will have a Club Millesime - the highest standard lounge in the Sofitel portfolio (incl Butler service).

At 38sqm the basic Deluxe room also offers a room 60% (!) larger than the rooms in the So Sofitel basic rooms.

The GM has also been selected and he is Mr. Wouter De Graaf formerly of various NZ Sofitel properties.

Very much looking forward to this property.

The opening of this property has been postponed several times already. I really hope they will open their doors in May since I'm in the city in the beginning of June and have been planning to stay at this hotel.

I'm not sure if the picture shown is from deluxe room because the same picture is used as an sample in each room, even in suite. But yeah, it looks and sounds really good!

This is very bad news. I was planning to stay there in June. After a careful consideration, I decided to choose Sofitel Singapore Sentosa as a plan B because of my positive experience there last summer. Just have to hope there won't be any big wedding celebrations.

The email I recived from the hotel stated they are targeting a July 1 or 2 open. Hopefully it stays on track, because I'll be in Singapore on July 7!

I cross my fingers for you, but do not count on it too much
