The colorful quarters get a tech-y new hotel. 

Little India has been reenergized recently, with the Singapore Tourism Board's efforts to promote the area with initiatives like the Little India Artwalk

The new Hilton Garden Inn Singapore Serangoon (bit.ly/2rEXcyd) lies in the heart of the vibrant district, just a short walk away from Little India MRT, Tekka Market and Mustafa Center.

Featuring 328 contemporary rooms, many of which come with a view of the colorful historic shophouses, the hotel is super high-tech in its use of the Hilton Honors mobile app that allows you to check-in without having to approach the front desk and also doubles as a digital access key for your room. 

There's also an outdoor pool that overlooks the city and offers views as far as Parkview Square, the art deco building that's home to Atlas, one of the hottest new bars in Singapore. 

Room rates start at around B3,800/night.
