Taking its cue from its metropolitan location, Pullman Singapore Orchard’s signature spaces are designed to celebrate the fashion powerhouses that surround it. On arrival, guests can enjoy a fully contactless check-in via the hotel’s mobile app and digital room keys. The 326 innovative, fashion-inspired rooms and suites come in nine configurations, ranging from the Classic Rooms to the Presidential Suite, and are fully automated so guests can customize every part of the ambiance, including the lighting and temperature.
