The newly renovated property pioneers innovations in design and product for the nine other Hotel Jen properties under Shangri-La International Hotel Management Limited across Asia Pacific.

Hotel Jen has undergone this extensive SGD45 million makeover to transition from Traders Hotel Singapore. The fresh and contemporary hotel, designed to attract the same highly valued business and leisure traveller, now reflects a modern functional design concept that removes many of the common pain points of today’s travellers – whether individuals, families or groups.

None of the 565 rooms are the same – with four contemporary locally curated wallpaper designs highlighting a Singapore theme (bicycle, orchid, goldfish and shop house). Each room includes thoughtful touches such as: free WiFi, USB charger outlets, high pressure walk-in showers, and king-sized “floating” beds with 300-thread count linen. Executive suites also include a pull-out sofa bed, a small pantry, a microwave and a SMEG fridge. The 18-storey hotel also boasts a large, chic and vibrantly designed Club Lounge located on the 17th floor with open views of the nearby residential neighbourhood full of lush greenery,offering a wide variety of healthy breakfast items and a range of local and international cocktails and canapes in the evening becoming fast the most popular area of the hotel.

We had a staycation at Hotel Jen Tanglin recently and totally loved it! Do try out their delicious buffet feasts while you are there too.
