Four Points by Sheraton proudly opens their third hotel in the country, in the teaming Chinatown neighbourhood. The hotel’s interior design draws inspiration from the Chinese history of migration to the area, featuring exposed brick walls, floor to ceiling metal lattice work, and traditional tiles in shades of green, which follows into their F&B venues. The two dining concepts – Lady Yi’s Tea House and Quan’s Kitchen – feature Peranakan delights, and Chinese and Western favourites respectively; while Jann (pictured) is the hotel’s chinoiserie-styled bar that’s home to inventive handcrafted cocktails dedicated to the traditional trades of the locale, plus a selection of cold brews they call their Best Brews program.
