Formerly an illustrious address of the pioneer of cable radio in Singapore, the iconic building of Rediffusion at 182 Clemenceau Avenue, in which the hotel is housed, was officially opened by Singapore’s Governor Sir Franklin Gimson in August 1949. With the road named after Georges Clemenceau, a French premier in honour of his fortitude during World War I, the hotel site was once home to one of Singapore’s earliest railway stations which operated from 1902 to 1932. Today, with its close proximity to existing prominent landmarks like The Istana, The National Museum of Singapore and Fort Canning Hill, the hotel’s locale is steeped in history.
Inspired by Singapore’s colonial past and the dedication to bringing the building to majestic glory, the contemporary retro design of this modern hotel in Singapore will up the ante for a hotel experience that well-heeled international travellers can look forward to. The brand new Citadines Connect City Centre Singapore will be one of the most coveted hotels offering a perfect respite in the heart of the city where the vibrancy of Orchard Road meets the charm of the civic district.
