Westin to be first hotel to open in new Singapore financial district

SINGAPORE The Westin Hotels & Resorts brand will be the first to open at Marina Bay’s Asia Square, located at Singapore’s newest financial district.

The 306-key hotel is slated to open in late 2013. It will occupy the 32nd to 46th floors of Asia Square Tower 2.

“We are delighted to establish Westin’s presence in Singapore and at a landmark development like Asia Square,” says Matthew Fry, Westin’s senior vice president of acquisitions and development. “With Asia Square’s prime location and excellent amenities, coupled with our distinctive wellness positioning, we are certain of delivering a world-class hotel that will redefine the Marina Bay precinct. We look forward to working in partnership with Asia Square to reintroduce the Westin brand to Singapore.”

Asia Square Tower 1 will debut in June. Other Asia Square tenants will include Citibank, Swiss bank Julius Baer and insurance firm Lloyd’s.
