Four hotels in Singapore are under investigation for sharing commercially sensitive information.

Capri by Fraser Changi City Singapore, Village Hotel Changi, Village Hotel Katong and Crowne Plaza Changi Airport Hotel all privately discussed confidential customer-specific information, such as ongoing price negotiations with corporate customers.

The Competition and Consumer Commission of Singapore said the discussions between the hotels reduce commercial competition, at the loss of the consumers. The accused hotels have six weeks to make their cases to the CCCS, which will then make its decision after careful consideration.
