Review: Conrad Singapore

As we cleared immigration, our bags were already rounding the carousel.  We grabbed the bags, hit the ATM, and were in a cab on our way into Singapore in a matter of minutes.  We arrived during this day which made it easy to find the somewhat hidden Conrad which is located in the middle of a sprawling group of office skyscrapers.

We stayed at the Conrad during our last trip to Singapore and really enjoyed our stay.  The location is ideal in that it's close to public transportation and the Marina Bay area where we spent most of our time.

I had emailed the property prior to our stay to ask if there was availability on the club floor.  I received a response basically saying "if there's availability we'll upgrade you."  Upon check-in, there was no availability but we were (thanks to our Hilton Honors Gold status) upgraded to a room on the "business" floor that provided complimentary breakfast by the pool vs. the restaurant/lounge.

Our room was standard Conrad fare.  Modern but slightly boring from a decor standpoint.  We did receive a complimentary fruit amenity, waters refreshed daily, and truffles during turndown.  Of course, the highlight was the Conrad bear and rubber ducky which lives quite the life on the edge of our tub at home.

Who doesn't love the Merlion?

Other than our room and breakfast, we didn't spend a ton of time at the hotel but we did enjoy our stay and recommend this hotel (especially if using HHonors points) as the location is ideal.  If you can score an upgrade to gain access to the lounge, you are in for a treat as it is one of the best hotel lounges in the world.
