Hotel Exterior & Entrance
Reception & Lobby
I thought the design of the lobby was nice although there were some parts which were really dark.
We arrived at the hotel around 11:15am fresh from our stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Singapore Serangoon located in the Little India district. We were welcomed by Diana, one of the receptionists working that day and asked if we wanted to do our check in at the Executive Lounge, and which we accepted.
The Executive Lounge is located on the 4th floor and is just temporary as the real Executive Lounge is under renovation (scheduled to open on the 2nd quarter of 2018 as per their website) and this one on the 4th floor is actually a departure lounge. We were helped by a friendly associate during the check-in process and got upgraded to one of their centennial king suites which was perfect 😍
Centennial King Suite, 1601
Conrad Istanbul Bosphorus in April last year was still Aromatheraphy Associates, which was the standard amenity.
Executive Lounge, 4th floor
All Day Refreshments
Afternoon Tea (14:30-16:30)
Evening Cocktails (17:30-20:00)
Buffet Breakfast, Oscar's (6am to 10:30am)
As usual, we had a choice to have breakfast in the Executive Lounge or in the main restaurant, and we chose the latter.
The breakfast buffet had an extensive offering and definitely one of the best I've seen 😉
I was able to visit the Business Center on the 5th floor but unfortunately, no pictures were allowed.
Exploring the Area
It was our second day in Singapore so in the afternoon we decided to go to the Waterfront Promenade to take pictures of the Marina Bay Sands and the Merlion (which was being renovated) and in the evening, we took a taxi to visit some of the attractions in the Gardens by The Bay including the Garden Rhapsody Show which was full of folks even if it was raining and the Spectra which is a light and water show in front of the Marina Bay Sands.
Having stayed at other Conrad hotels in the past including Conrad Manila, Conrad Bangkok and Conrad Seoul, I was really excited to be able to stay here and see how it compares with the other Conrads. First, I was impressed that we could actually check in early and the fact that we were upgraded to a Centennial Suite was just awesome. I thought the room was very modern and spacious and the view of the Fountain of Wealth was just perfect. The food offering from the Executive Lounge during afternoon tea and evening cocktails as well as the breakfast buffet was very extensive, not to mention the presence of the ice cream 😉 The outdoor pool on the 4th floor also offered nice views although the infinity pool of the Marina Bay Sands is still unbeatable. The location is very ideal as you are just steps away from the Fountain of Wealth, the Suntec City with its countless restaurants and a short walk to the Waterfront Promenade. Lastly, the staff were all very friendly and did their best to make our stay memorable, just like on our other Conrad stays 😍
