Holiday Inn Express Orchard Road

Part of the Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG), the Holiday Inn Express at Bideford Road is a IHG Green Engage Hotel. Green Engage hotels are part of a worldwide sustainability effort by the group to monitor energy and water usage in its 4,400 hotels around the world and reduce energy consumption by up to 25% a year.

Other hotels here, such as The Westin Singapore, the Fullerton Hotel and Fullerton Bay are also joining W Singapore in a project by Clean the World to recycle bars of used soap. Slightly used bar soaps will be treated and turned into new bars, which will be distributed to those in need and disaster-hit areas. Turning waste into something useful, that always gets our thumbs up!
