Pullman Singapore Hill Street pays homage to luxury train travel

Opened for stay in October this year, Pullman Singapore Hill Street brings guests on a journey through thoughtfully curated spaces, representing a modern take of the bygone era.

Pullman Singapore Hill Street pays homage to luxury train travel

Yet another Pullman hotel opens in Singapore – and this time it’s located along the downtown core, just a stone’s throw away from City Hall MRT Interchange. Mazen Abilmona, the General Manager of Pullman Singapore Hill Street, expresses pride in being the first Pullman globally to pay homage to the brand’s roots in luxury train travel. 

Pullman Singapore Hill Street Reception

Designed by DP Architects, Pullman Singapore Hill Street seamlessly translates George Pullman’s 1867 invention of sleeping rail car into a modern context. A reproduction of the classic Pullman Sleeping Cabin serves as a luggage holding area while Pullman Porters welcome guests upon arrival.

In the lobby, floor-to-ceiling installation of vintage carriers along with marble and wood-clad walkway lead guests to the antique-style elevators. Then, a hallway of custom carpets depicting the Singapore map guide them to a variety of 350 rooms and suites. Ranging from 25 to 33 square metres in sizes, the rooms offer views of Fort Canning, the hotel swimming pool or the iconic Marina Bay.

Modelled after private railroad cabins, each room boasts smart technology, plush bedding, open concept wardrobe, dedicated workspace, and modular furnishings. Complementing these elements are polished fixtures and brass linings against dark wood and vintage accents, thus creating a perfect balance of comfort and adventure.

The hotel takes sustainability seriously, incorporating eco-friendly elements in its design. They include solar panels to power corridor lights and regulated irrigation that water pockets of vegetation such as the cascading greenery walls, which guests in courtyard-facing rooms have a view of.

Additionally, Pullman Singapore Hill Street offers a range of facilities catering to the needs of modern travellers. From the Executive Lounge to dynamic function rooms and an outdoor swimming pool with cabanas, the hotel ensures a diverse array of options for both business and leisure travellers. It also houses three distinct dining establishments: an All-American deli, a modern Japanese Izakaya and a Mexican-themed swim-up bar.

Built from the ground-up, this new five-star hotel with its terracotta-coloured tiles and extensive glass façade contrasts its neighbouring building’s colonial art deco architecture. With a prime location at the intersection of culture, entertainment, and business, Pullman Singapore Hill Street positions itself as the ideal base for today’s global nomads, promising an exciting fusion of playfulness and flexibility.
