will holiday inn express orchard road be open by september??

Urgent. I need to know as I arrive on 12 sep. Bookings cannot be made yet on holiday inn website. Can any locals help. How far complete is the hotel now?

If the hotel group aren't saying when it will open and are not taking bookings, I think its safe to assume that any advise you may get to if the hotel will open by September here will be wild guesses at best.

I suggest you make a refundable booking elsewhere and keep an eye on the Holiday Inn site to see if it becomes available to book before your trip.

If the official site does not accept reservation for September, it means that the hotel WILL NOT be available for booking at this period.

I've seen a pic of the exterior which looks complete and said "coming june 2013".. Also I've seen that they started hiring staff in april.. I think ill wait till june.. If it doesn't open then ill make a refundable booking elsewhere like u guys say...and see what happens. Thanks for your help.

Usually the hotel website would announce when they intend to open.Not unless you are using Priority Rewards, why not use another hotel .There are also 2 other Holiday Inn properties in SIngapore just in case you are using Priority rewards for booking.
