Memoirs of a Raffles Original
Nobody knows Raffles Hotel like Leslie Danker. Memoirs of a Raffles Original is the story of one man and his unique relationship with Singapore’s most iconic property. Leslie Danker is the only person in Singapore to have personally experienced the many incarnations of Raffles Hotel: from bastion of colonial prestige, to fading icon, and now, the country’s premier symbol of luxury and hospitality. In this wistful and humorous autobiographical account, he retraces his nearly four decades of service; from his humble start in the maintenance department tending to clogged toilets to becoming its very first Resident Historian, sharing the hotel’s storied past with celebrities, dignitaries, VIPs, and now, you.
