Nestled on a quiet stretch of Orchard Road since 1990, Lloyd's Inn used to be a basic run-down inn with a green-tiled facade marketed to budget travellers looking for a place to stay near the shopping district. Think stuffy and unwelcoming interiors with carpeted floors, old-fashioned window sills and dated floral upholstery. Now, the inn is a millennial haven, boasting photogenic spaces from every angle. Under the direction of her father Herman Chang (founder of real estate developer Macly Group), owner and director Joan Chang turned the inn on its head in 2014. The 34-room hotel was given a new life with the help of cross-disciplinary design practice FARM Architects. Six years later, the boutique hotel brand has expanded to Seminyak's Double Six Beach in Bali and another Kuala Lumpur city property. The latter, originally slated to open in 2019, is located in a skyscraper that blends into the Malaysian capital’s cityscape.
