History[edit]

Architecture[edit]

The hotel was designed by WOHA, a Singapore-based architecture firm known for incorporating extensive greenery in their buildings.[6] Designed to be a "hotel-in-a-garden", Parkroyal on Pickering features extensive greenery, including green walls, water features and 15,000 square meters of tiered "sky gardens".[3][4][7]

The hotel's sky gardens are designed to be self-sustaining and consume minimal energy through the usage of solar cells, motion sensors, rainwater harvesting and reclaimed water.[3][4]

Parkroyal on Pickering has 367 rooms and suits. The fifth floor of the hotel is a dedicated wellness floor that features a day spa, fitness centre, infinity pool and garden.[4][2] The hotel offers a restaurant and bar called LIME.[2]
