A brief history of 50 years of warm hospitality.

First established as the 1073rd Holiday Inn property globally, the hotel grew along with the local tourism landscape, as Singapore’s then budding industry blossomed into the iconic destination that it has become today. From its roots in 1974 as the Holiday Inn, the hotel evolved and grew from strength to strength, transitioning in 1980 to become Holiday Inn Singapore and in 1985 to Royal Holiday Inn; In 1990, to become the Royal Holiday Inn Crowne Plaza, and in 1997, to become Singapore Royal Crowne Plaza Singapore. At the turn of the millennium in 1999, the hotel rebranded once more, emerging as Royal Plaza on Scotts Singapore.

Over the last 5 decades, Royal Plaza on Scotts has been a trailblazer in the industry.

Some of the initiatives that Royal Plaza on Scotts has taken includes:
