We stayed at the Quincy during our first trip to Singapore from 11/23 - 11/27. We chose it based on Trip Advisor reviews, location (5-10 min. walk from Orchard Road shopping district and MRT station), and price.
The Trip Advisor reviews for the Quincy are right on the money. This is a great boutique hotel at a great price, considering all the perks. The hotel is clean and modern but not fussy. It is described as very "trendy," but I did not think it any trendier than a W Hotel, for example, and the staff was certainly very friendly and accomodating. The hotel seems to make an attempt to make guests feel at home, with free yoga on Sat., cupcake baking classes on Sat., and once/week "movie night" at the very cool infinity pool on the 12th floor. If I were a business traveller in Singapore, I think this would be a very comforting place to stay.
Included in our room rate ($235/night) was a limo transfer from the airport, two free pieces of laundry or drycleaning/day (LOVED THIS, having been in humid Thailand the week before), free Wi-Fi (excellent speed and connection on my iPhone), free local calls, free minibar( water, tea, soda, beer), free cocktails from 6-8 PM, and breakfast/lunch/dinner. We did not eat 3 meals a day, but found the hotel food to be pretty decent. Breakfast was a buffet with Asian and Western options. The pasta we had for dinner was surprisingly good, but there are simply too many great places to eat in Singapore to be eating at the hotel all the time!
The rooms are small (like NYC or any large city) but well-designed and feel larger than they are. The beds were a bit firm for my taste, but linens were nice quality and pillows soft. Bath was good-sized with separate (large) tub and shower. The toilet was Japanese-style with attached bidet. Toiletries were by Molton Brown, always a plus. We had no significant trouble with noise during our stay.
We did not use the pool or workout rooms but did check them out. The pool is very nice with a lovely city view and free water, sodas, and beer and towels available at the pool. The workout area is small but has very nice, new, state-of-the art machines.
We enjoyed our stay at the Quincy very much. When we return to Singapore, we would definitely consider returning. I think I might have preferred a location closer to the river as I am not a big shopper, but a similarly charming hotel there (Fullerton was beautiful) would have been twice as expensive.
