We had a 2 night stopover in Singapore from Malaysia, and decided to try out the Crowne Plaza Changi. We travel to that part of Asia very frequently and usually end up in a hotel around the Marina area, but this time decided not to lug our luggages around just because the stopover was really short.
To be honest, I was concerned about the aircraft noise, and being a light sleeper, this was the major reason I've consciously chosen not to stay at airport hotels in any city I visited. Taking this risk did pay off. Yes, there certainly was noise from the tarmac, but being mentally prepared did help. The big advantage was that we could unpack and unwind almost immediately on touching down at Changi Airport, and we could dispense with the hassle of a taxi ride with our luggages into the town area.
We had booked 2 adjoining rooms - the other for our 2 kids. The rooms were well equipped, clean and presentable, although small and tight. However, since we were out on town most of the 2 days and nights, that didn't become an issue. If we needed a quick bite, just a 5 minute walk outside the hotel and there was a massive food court at T3.
On our morning of departure, it was a breeze catching our early morning flight, which was another reason we chose this hotel.
If we ever did short stopovers in Singapore again, this would be the way to go for us. The hotel was comfortable, the staff was helpful, and the location at T3 was extremely convenient catching flights no matter which terminal your flight would depart from.
