Tourist Central: that's the octagonal Marriott (formerly, Dynasty) Hotel on Orchard Road, which takes its name partly from the nutmeg plantations established here in the 19th century and partly from a Mr. Orchard, who lived here. Victor Savage and Brenda Yeoh, authors of Toponymics: A Study of Singapore Street Names (2003), write that in 1900 Orchard Road was "a well-shaded avenue" reminiscent of "Devonshire lanes."
