Marriott Singapore has the most enviable location of all hotel properties in the prime Orchard Road district. It is situated no more than five minutes away from the Orchard MRT station via a linked underground walkway and right next to local fashion retail icon, Tangs at Tang Plaza.
All of the city’s prime shopping malls – including ION Orchard, Ngee Ann City shopping centre and Paragon – are accessible on foot while the Raffles MRT station in the Central Business District is just four stops away by train. To top it off, two of Singapore’s top medical facilities – Mount Elizabeth Hospital and Paragon Medical – are just five minutes away on foot. As far as location goes, you can get any better than this.
Style & character
Despite the 34 years since first opening, first as Dynasty Hotel in 1982, then as Marriott Singapore in 1995, this 30-storey property still looks as grand as when it first opened. The marble clad lobby boasts a lofty, three storey-high ceiling framed by towering off-white pillars and topped with a glass-tipped air well. You won’t have to jostle with other hotel guests even if there’s a crowd.
Service & facilities
While there isn’t a tennis court here, there are enough facilities – including The Retreat spa, a gym, a swimming pool and a half-size basketball court – to keep you busy if shopping is not on your agenda. Service is as courteous and professional as can be. Calls to the housekeeping department and front desk were attended to promptly.
