Boat Quay, Singapore - Heritage Collection opened its latest branch to the public on 20 August 2021. The newly launched hotel is a flagship of the recognized boutique hotel chain and serviced apartments provider. It is the only hotel situated along Boat Quay's riverfront. Spanning across 4 shophouse units, the hotel houses over 40 first-rate rooms inside. Heritage Collection on Boat Quay (Quayside Wing) boasts a chinoiserie theme through its architectural elements and interior furnishings.

Guests can safely stay in the hotel because along with the Singapore Tourism Board (STB), lodging establishments are working hand in hand to strictly implement safety precautions and other helpful guidelines into their systems—following those that are indicated in STB's Safe Management Measures for Hotels and Hostels.

Heritage Collection on Boat Quay (Quayside Wing) has also replaced the Collection's use of keyfob access with a more convenient yet secure and fuss-free mobile self-check-in system, allowing guests to safely lock and enter their rooms with only a mobile key access.

Since the enforcement of restrictions for international travel in 2020, the hospitality sector in Singapore has been flogged left and right by the effects of the pandemic. Without travelling tourists, hotels receive little to no guests, making it hard for companies to sustain operations and even personnel. The series of lockdowns made staycation popular among locals who are seeking ways to temporarily escape reality by going on short trips and spending a few days in in-country hotels. Currently, the pent-up demand for staycation bookings is what have kept lodging establishments afloat since the past year. Despite the pandemic, Heritage Collection was able to sustain its operations and even expand the business by opening up more branches nationwide.

With boutique hotels implementing safety protocols across all of its chains, people are determined to take their days off to unwind in a place apart from their home. In a survey conducted by the Singapore Management University's (SMU) Institute of Service Excellence, it has been well noted that Singaporean residents are keen and more than willing to go and spend on staycations more frequently than usual, with The Straits Times even stating that: "Sixty-three per cent of the 450 participants surveyed said they would maintain or increase the frequency of staycations while 71 per cent said they would spend the same amount or more."

Heritage Collection, which has received sky-high ratings in known global travel platforms like Agoda,, Expedia,, Airbnb, and TripAdvisor, will be opening up another branch in the Kampong Glam area soon. Offering transient rooms that come with all-inclusive and flexible lease terms, it is the optimal choice for those who want to go on a staycation trip for work, leisure, or any other purpose.
