Conrad Singapore Hotel
We stayed at Conrad Singapore in August 2104 for 4 nights. As soon as we arrived we were recognised as Diamond HHonors members and upgraded to an executive room. Straight away we were taken by staff up to the executive lounge on 31st floor where we were served refreshments while checking-in. We would definitely recommend an executive room as we found the lounge excellent with very friendly and efficient staff (please note that children under 12 are not permitted in the executive lounge though). As we had 2 children under 12 we were allowed access to one of the meeting rooms next to the lounge so that we would still have access to the food and beverages available in the lounge.
In the executive lounge they serve daily afternoon tea and canapés in the evenings, with alcoholic beverages available all afternoon and evening up until 8.00pm. We found there was a good variety of food every day that changed regularly. We did not have breakfast in the lounge as we were given the option to have the buffet breakfast at Oscars which we chose instead. There was plentiful choice for us at Oscars, with a nice mix of Western and Asian food as well as healthy choice options available. Especially loved the freshly squeezed juices! Once again there was plenty of staff working and making sure we were well looked after. We also stopped by Oscars Sidewalk Terrace a couple of the nights to grab some snack meals and cocktails which was nice and handy after exploring the sights of Singapore at night.
The Conrad Singapore rooms were nice and spacious and the bathroom had a nice big bath and shower. Our room was replenished daily with fresh fruit and water bottles which was a nice touch. On arrival there were also welcome chocolates and of course the much loved Conrad Bear and rubber ducky. The kids also received an activity pack each which was a nice touch. Loved that there was en espresso machine in the room too.
The pool is good to take a dip and cool off from the Singapore heat. The kids loved it while we ordered cocktails and snacks and just relaxed. The gym is also a good size for travellers and we also made use of the Day Spa which is really nice for treatments.
The location of the hotel was good for us as tourists. Taxi fare from the airport was just under $30. It is walking distance to many attractions like Marina Bay, the Flyer, Bugis St Markets and the Merlion. It is right near Suntec City which is the start of the Hop On, Hop Off bus tour which is a great way to see the city of Singapore. The Conrad Singapore is also right next to a MRT (train) station which is such an easy, clean and cheap way to get around Singapore. It was also only a $10 taxi ride to Sentosa Island.
One feature we love of Conrad Hotels is the Conrad Concierge App (free to download). If staying at one of the Conrad hotels you can request different amenities, service times and tour bookings.
Excellent service makes this hotel great and we would happily recommend this hotel and will look forward to staying here again in the future.
