When planning out the trip, I was originally looking to stay at the Marriott down the street, but after the Marriott and Starwood merger last fall, I widened my search and came across this place.
At nearly $200 SGD less than the Marriott, it was a fantastic deal for Singapore at only $241 SGD per night including tax (about $170 USD). Also, just like the Marriott, with my Platinum Elite status that I got last year, we would receive complimentary breakfast and dinner at the hotel.
Our deluxe king room was clean and well-appointed with all the standard amenities that you’d expect to find in a four or five star hotel room.
What really made the hotel stand out, in my opinion though, were all the nice additions that made our stay just a little bit more comfortable.
For instance, imagine you’re laying in bed and you want to adjust the temperature. Instead of having to get up, you can simply roll over and adjust the it from the control panel next to your bed.
Also, if you happened to not have an international data plan, you were welcome to use a complimentary smartphone to navigate the city.
Also, if you didn’t pack a power adapter, you needn’t worry, as all the outlets in the room were universal and accepted any plug.
The view from the room also happened to be pretty amazing.
The club lounge was certainly an upgrade from the ones I’ve been to in the US. The breakfast spread rotated every morning and included eggs, multiple meats, yogurt, and all kinds of fresh fruit.
For dinner, every evening from 5:30 to 7:30, they also had a good offering, with rotating dishes every night. They also had a wide selection of alcohol as well.
Although we didn’t get a chance to use them, the hotel also had a pool and a large gym with a sauna and steam room.
Overall, the Sheraton was a great place to spend three nights while we explored Singapore. Great rooms, amenities, food, and only a short walk from the subway station. When I make it back to the city, this will most likely be the place I pick to stay.
More to come about the city in my next post.
