Goodwood Park Hotel to refurbish Parklane wing
HOT on the heels of a S$2 million ($1.58 million) refurbishment project for its Mayfair Wing in summer last year, Singapore’s heritage Goodwood Park Hotel is planning to prep up its Parklane Wing soon, TTN has learnt. The Parklane Wing houses apartment-style suites designed for long-staying guests.With balconies affording views overlooking either the Balinese-inspired Mayfair Pool or outside the hotel, the recently renovated 77 rooms and suites of its Mayfair Wing are spread over three floors. Renowned interior designer Ernesto Bedmar of Bedmar & Shi has been the name behind the hotel’s renovation projects since the nineties.Linda Wee, general manager, shared, “With this most recent refurbishment, we hope to offer guests an experience that ties in with the history of the hotel, as well as pamper and please with a host of thoughtful and luxurious modern touches incorporated within the space aimed at providing an enjoyable stay, whether it’s for business or leisure.”The centrepiece of each room is a stunning floor-to-ceiling bed headboard featuring a black and white image of old shophouses in Singapore. Besides plush linens complete with vibrantly coloured velvet bedrunners, rooms in the Mayfair Wing also feature new furnishings and amenities suited for the modern travellers’ needs, such as a customised writing desk with a locking sliding top, an ergonomic and adjustable Vitra MedaPal swivel chair, LED flatscreen TVs, as well as other nifty fittings including four international sockets, a multimedia connectivity panel, radio alarm clock, energy-saving LED lights and fuzzy logic control air conditioning which enables guests to personalise their room temperature settings.Built originally in 1900, Goodwood Park Hotel began as the Teutonia Club – an exclusive enclave for the expatriate German community in Singapore. In 1918, three Jewish brothers by the family name of Manasseh bought over the property and renamed it Goodwood Hall and registered it as a restaurant-café entertainment establishment in 1922. One of its highlights that year was a performance by world-famous ballerina, Anna Pavlova. Link for the Deal Alert!
