Take the opportunity to learn more about the property’s fascinating history by strolling down the sun-kissed hallways with the hotel’s resident historian Leslie Danker and be entertained by his tales and anecdotes of an era and society now better left committed to textbooks and handwritten journals. You’ll hear how the Singapore Sling became the drink of choice and about that one time when the hotel’s Bar & Billiard Room had a real-life tiger as its guest.
