InterContinental Singapore refurbished

 InterContinental Singapore has revamped its shophouse guest rooms and suites.

The hotel, which preserves a row of the Peranakan-style shophouses from the 1920s as an integral feature of its architecture, has given its 65 shophouse rooms and suites a major makeover to reflect the Peranakan heritage that dates back to the 17th century when seafarers from China married indigenous Malays.

The shophouse rooms and suites feature dark teak flooring, intricate carvings and artifacts, and wooden window shutters. However, room amenities remain modern, incorporating such technology as a Bose wave music system and media connections including HDMI, USB, Internet data connection and PC link inputs.
