International hospitality group Accor has announced the opening of its largest Mercure-branded hotel in the world, the 989-key Mercure Icon Singapore City Centre. Room rates start from $195.

The property is located at 8 Club Street, at the corner of Club Street and Cross Street. Local hotel operator Worldwide Hotels bought the site in 2019 through a government land sale tender for $562.2 million.

The hotel’s location between Chinatown and the CBD inspired the design, with a lobby that features an LED mural and artworks of conic shophouses by local artist Ripple Root.

Rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows or balconies and eco-conscious amenities, including filtered water dispensers and biodegradable toiletries.

The hotel will house six dining options, including the Michelin Guide-listed restaurant, L’antica Pizzeria da Michele, says Garth Simmons, COO of Accor’s premium, midscale and economy division in Asia. Other amenities include a swimming pool, gym and a wellness deck.

The hotel is directly connected to two MRT stations: the Telok Ayer MRT Station on the Downtown Line, and the Chinatown Interchange Station for the Northeast and Downtown Lines.
