Partnership offers guests at its six Singapore properties complimentary daily rides around the city.

SINGAPORE - Millennium Hotels and Resorts, the hotel arm of property giant City Developments Limited (CDL), today announced an exciting partnership with Uber that will allow guests at its six Singapore properties to enjoy complimentary rides daily around Singapore throughout their stay, along with a host of attractive benefits.

A first-of-its-kind collaboration in Singapore, guests who book the Stay & Ride with Uber package at any one of Millennium Hotels and Resorts’ six Singapore properties - Grand Copthorne Waterfront, Orchard Hotel Singapore, M Hotel Singapore, Studio M Hotel Singapore, M Social Singapore or Copthorne King’s Hotel Singapore - will enjoy a complimentary Uber ride each day of their stay, along with attractive value-added benefits such as complimentary buffet breakfast for two persons, free room upgrade, free WIFI, early check-in and late check-out, food & beverage discounts up to 20% off at selected hotel restaurants and more. In addition, guests also have the option to book an Uber airport transfer.

Millennium Hotels and Resorts will leverage Uber for Business’ product ‘Uber Central’ to provide guest transport. Uber Central is a dashboard that allows organisations to request and manage multiple rides at the same time from one place. The guest does not require a smartphone or an Uber account to book a ride.

Millennium Hotels and Resorts is excited to collaborate with Uber to offer our guests a world-class travel experience that brings together the best of Asian hospitality and modern comforts throughout their journey. As a group, we strive to exceed the needs of our business and leisure travellers by delivering value and convenience, and we take pride in blazing the trail in being the first hotel group in Singapore to embark on such an offer. This unique partnership allows us to leverage on Uber’s expansive transport network and peer-to-peer ridesharing technology to enhance guests’ mobility while exploring our city-state,” says Lee Richards, Vice President of Operations, South East Asia, Millennium Hotels and Resorts.

It is exciting to see great hotels use Uber Central as a way to provide their guests with exceptional experiences that distinguish them from other chains. We look forward to partnering with Millennium Hotels and Resorts to ensure that every guest has safe, reliable transport throughout their stay,” says Arjun Nohwar, Head of Uber for Business for APAC.

Millennium Hotels and Resorts is a dynamic hospitality group with a worldwide portfolio of over 130 hotels across key gateway cities in Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and North America. With six established hotels here in Singapore, each situated in first-rate neighbourhood locations and catering to business and leisure travellers alike. The newly-minted Millennium-Uber partnership will help its guests navigate the city in comfort with ease.
