Hotel Jen announces a series of renovations and unveils new facilities across its 10 properties in Asia Pacific to meet the needs of independent travellers with a millennial mindset. Launched by Shangri-La International Hotel Management Ltd two years ago, the young Hotel Jen brand provides business and leisure guests with a fuss-free stay, quality, comfort and value alongside distinctive local experiences.


The brand made its debut in late 2014 with Hotel Jen Orchardgateway Singapore and swiftly unveiled 10 hotels in major cities across Asia Pacific in under a year. The creation of the Hotel Jen brand is part of Shangri-La group’s initiative to transform its portfolio of Traders Hotels, injecting a relaxed, energetic hospitality style into the diverse collection of mid-range properties.


“We have been on a mission since we started rebranding former Traders hotels into Hotel Jens in 2014,” said Lothar Nessmann, chief operating officer of Hotel Jen. “We continue to innovate and enhance our hotel offerings to align with our promise of capturing the spirit of travel, relishing the adventure, celebrating the culture and smoothing out the frustrations for our guests.”
