“Great Location, Outstanding Concierge Lounge, Prostitutes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

This is a nice Marriott in a great shopping location. The high floors are ultra-quiet, and in particular this concierge lounge has a great breakfast and happy hour buffet, there is NO need to ever eat anywhere else for breakfast certainly. The health club is small but adequate for a hotel of this size. The staff are helpful. The climate control in the rooms is accurate and reliable, important in Singapore!

The one oddity of this place is there is an all night disco and attached lounge and at around 9-10 pm onwards the place is full of prostitutes. I really do not have any moral problem with this, but they are sort of "in the way" as each new one shows up and asks you (if you are a man) if you want a massage etc. They are not ultra persistent but with the constant turnover of workers you are asked a lot, and they sit together at the bar waiting for prospective customers and it almost starts to feel like you are at their "company party" even if you just want to have a drink on your own.

This Marriott is just wonderful. Located right on Orchard Road and close to many things. We arrived at 1:30am and the taxi from the airport to the hotel was only 30 Singapore dollars - a good deal for two with loads of luggage. Rooms are beautiful and a welcome sight after long flights to get here. Service staff is very helpful and friendly. STAY HERE for a treat!

The best part of this hotel was its location, heart of Orchard road, the most happening place in singapore. while i was here for a 3 days business trip, i always took a evening or late night walk through the streets and it was such a pleasure with the diversity of this amazing city.

Marriott Singapore was in the same class of other marriott's in most other locations. Great consistency, yet catering to local flavors. In case of this one, could get some indian breakfast as part of the wide spread.

Offcourse this hotel is a bit pricey, but can't help it due to the location and the reality boom city of singapore

My wife and I stayed at this hotel a few years ago, based on the recommendation of other couples that do not even know each other, that had stayed there and highly recommended it. The location is perfect, for a tourist traveler, the breakfast is amazing and something you shall remember. The rooms are just fine, and do meet the Marriott standards. Of course the rest of the Hotel and staff do keep the Marriott standards and category, which is always worth the price, if you are looking for that kind of large bed and services. We did not try other venues at the Hotel to be able to judge anything besides the breakfast which was well worth it. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: High floor is best, being in a very congested area with lots of traffic and potential noise.

Have stayed at this hotel numerous times and have always enjoyed the stay. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and hotel is clean and modern. Hotel is located in the business and shopping district and for 10-15 sing a cab can take you just about anywhere. English is spoken through out the area. One of the only places in the world that you can safely walk around the area at any time of day or night.

The Singapore Marriott is an excellent choice when traveling to Singapore on business or pleasure. Located on Orchard Rd., you are right in the heart of the upscale shopping district with easy access to the rest of the city via the MRT station located just steps from the entrance of the hotel. $10 unlimited use (train and bus), tourist passes for one to three days are available at the ticket booth at the Orchard station. The MRT is the best way to get around the city. Impeccably clean, quick, easy to navigate and one of the few bargains you’ll find in Singapore.

Being that this is primarily a business hotel; the hotel has a contemporary, upscale look and feel to it in both the common areas as well as the guest rooms. If you’re looking for more of resort experience, there are several pool suites surrounding the perimeter of the fifth floor pool. This was one of the nicest pools of any city location Marriott I’ve ever stayed at. There’s also a fairly high rated restaurant located at the pool aptly named the Pool Grill. I only tried lunch there one day while relaxing by the pool. A bit on the expensive side but the quality and quality of food was very good.

Being a Marriott Platinum Elite member, we were upgraded from a Deluxe room to an Executive room on the 30th floor with a great view of the city looking towards Marina Bay and the Sands. The room was exceptionally clean, well maintained and comfortable. My only complaint would be the lack of drawer space in the closets. Enough for a single traveling business person but lacking for two people.

If you’re a Marriott Gold or Platinum Elite member, you’ll receive free internet access and access to one of the nicest Marriott Executive lounges I’ve ever been to. Second perhaps only to the JW Marriott Hong Kong Executive lounge. They have a great spread of food along with a full complimentary bar each evening. Another nice option (as a Gold/Platinum member), is that you can choose breakfast each morning in either the lounge or in the Crossroads Café located in the lobby. The café offers a huge buffet assortment of both western and Asian breakfast selections, one better than the next. As an Elite member this was an outstanding benefit (and value) since the buffet normally comes with a $38 per person price tag . You can choose to eat inside or out which is a great way to people watch along Orchard Rd., if you can stand the heat!

The staff couldn’t have been more friendly or helpful. Everyone we encountered acknowledged us with a smile and if you looked the least bit puzzled or perplexed, would ask if there was anything they can help with, especially in the lounge.

While expensive (but then again all four/five star hotels worth staying in in Singapore are expensive), the Marriott truly delivered on all counts. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone planning on visiting Singapore.

Room Tip: High floor rooms have a great view and the pool suites make you feel like you're in a resort

My last visit here last year left much to be desired. But this time the remodel has been completed, and it has made a big change. The room was very comfortable and clean. The new shower is great. The staff was really helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet is really good with a full selection of western and asian dishes. The wifi worked really well throughout the hotel.
