Accor’s John Paul subsidiary launches in Singapore
Singapore – 13 June 2017 –
AccorHotels launches subsidiary John Paul, a leading concierge and customer loyalty business, in Singapore.
In under a decade the group has gone from fewer than 500 employees in Singapore to more than 3,300 and in coming months will add a further 540 new jobs, around 70 percent of which will be for Singaporeans.
AccorHotels currently operates 12 hotels in Singapore, representing 5,400 rooms and this year will add another 1,000 rooms to the city’s tourism infrastructure.
August will see the opening of the 223-room luxury Sofitel Singapore City Centre in Tanjong Pagar, while a combined Novotel and Mercure complex on Stevens Road will boost the city’s rooms by a further 772 in October.
Last year the group acquired the FRHI portfolio of hotels worldwide, including four landmark hotels in Singapore: the iconic Raffles Hotel, Fairmont Singapore, Swissotel The Stamford and Swissotel Merchant Court.
The Raffles Hotel Singapore is undergoing a significant restoration, which will be completed mid-2018 and renovations also recently began at the 1261-room Swissotel The Stamford.
