New rooms dressed in refreshing and vibrant décor, rejuvenated F&B spaces to reflect social trends and a luxury Swiss Spa now welcome guests to the Swissotel Merchant Court, Singapore. The hotel underwent an 18-month refurbishment to re-align itself with the requirements of modern business travellers and globe trotting visitors.
"We are also thrilled to announce two recent wins, marking a bright start for the new Swissôtel Merchant Court Singapore. The hotel was recently recognised for its Green efforts with the SHA-NEA 3R Awards for Hotel (Merit) 2016 - for commendable waste minimisation and recycling practices. And two days later, on 26th October 2016, our Executive Chef Louis Tay led the Singapore National Culinary Team to clinch double Gold, the nation's first, at the IKA Culinary Olympics 2016 in Erfurt, Germany", says General Manager Rainer Tenius.
Meeting spaces including the ballroom have been updated with new audiovisual and lighting systems. New mid-sized meeting rooms are available as well, giving planners more options for break-out sessions.

Modern facilities for data/video conferencing, data projector, ports for high-speed internet access and a comprehensive range of conference equipment are available.
The newly designed Crossroads Bar also serves as a chic informal meeting space with its cosy seats and sofas. The bar is helmed by Head Bartender, Mark Graham Thomas, who was the third-place winner in the national finals of the Diageo World Class Bartender of the Year 2014.
