Having stayed at the Conrad Singapore a couple times, I decided to try the Hilton Sinagpore, which is located conveniently on Orchard Road. This is certainly a solid Hilton hotel with regard to the overall hardware and software, but I'll be at the same time comparing to this stay to my experiences at Conrad Singapore as well.
I stayed a standard deluxe room (with executive lounge access) for the first night and paid an upgrade to the King suite (executive suite) for the second night. The standard room is just--standard. Nothing special to write home about, with all the standard flat screen TV, good wireless itnernet, and a very comfy bed. Staff was generally helpful as I arrrived past midnight and checkin process was smooth. Conrad, on the other hand, had bigger rooms, more TV channels for selection, a bathroom which is superior to that of Hilton (better amentities and decoration). The bed at Conrad is even better (albeit the beds being very "high")
The King suite that I stayed in the second night was a pleasant surprise-- a lot better than I had anticipated. A very spacious living room and a slightly better bedroom. There is a separate shower and a bathtub which is a welcoming change. Should you stay at the Hilton the suite is a good choice for bigger groups (I was travelling solo). Conrad suites, on the other hand, are nice but the use of space was not very clever as there were a lot of "empty" spaces that could be utilised better--but besides this Conrad suites win hands down.
I have read about the executive loung at the Hilton being very full nearing 6pm--and this is certainly true. I was at the lounge at around half 5 in the evening and it was rather empty, but as 6 approaches suddenly dozens of people appear in the lounge and seats and sofas get occupied very quickly--definitely need to go up earlier should you wish to secure seats with a table as well. Lounge staffs were very nice and helpful. Food selection was, however, slightly limited. The Conrad lounge is certainly a lot better once again, as the food selection is a lot better than the lounge at Hilton, and the alcoholic drink selection is better at the Cornad as well.
So what does this mean? I guess the bottom line is that if you wish to spend more time using the hotel facilities and the room itself, definitely go for Conrad. The location of the Hilton is really the only reason why I chose it this time round--but Singapore is a small place so Conrad isn't too far off though. This Hilton is a solid hotel, but just that the Conrad , at least to me, is miles better and sometimes you can get a cheaper rate at the Conrad than Hilton.
All in all a solid Hilton hotel but would suggest Conrad for a better overall experience in Singapore.

A couple of years ago, I stopped staying at Singapore Hilton because of bad service attitude - a rare thing in Asia and therefore plenty of other option. By coincindence, I was booked into the Singapore Hilton again and pleasantly surprised.

Rooms, restaurants, lobby are still the same, apart from minor maintenance. However, staff attitude has changed a lot to the positive. Staff is friendly, helpful and efficient. Congratulations for this turn around.

Booked two connecting rooms through priceline and got upgraded on check-in. Staff was very accommodating, rooms and sheets were constantly cleaned (have two toddlers who are very messy).

Complimentary mineral water replenished twiced a day, fresh fruits, newspaper, crabtree bathroom toiletries were much appreciated. Each room had their own DVD players connected to the LCD tv. Room service was responsive when we ordered a midnight snack for our hungry baby girl.

Overall, service was excellent. From the doorman, bellboy, reception, concierge, house cleaning and room service. Our kids had a great time. Location was close to everything. Mcdonalds, Wendys, Starbucks, 7 Eleven, ATM and MTR within walking distance.

We stayed for 5 nights in this property and really recommend for everyone who likes to stay close to all main attractions and wants a bit of luxury. Rooms are very good sized with a very big bed although the view was not great as we were on the side of the hotel, overlooking some kind of fans. The location is just perfect to explore the city via foot or alternative via MRT (Underground) which is just a few minutes walk. Staff was very helpful and breakfast had a very good choice of Continental, English, Japanese and Indian! Would definitely stay there again, good value for money. Try the pool on the roof which has some amzing views of the city!

We stayed at the Hilton Singapore during a stopover flight to Australia.

The hotel is very clean, the staff very helpful and friendly. The rooms are a good size, clean and comfortable. The hotel amenities are great, especially the swimming pool and gym. Breakfast choice was good too, with a wide choice for all palates.

It is located on Orchard Avenue, one of the main shopping streets in central Singapore. To walk from the hotel to the marina via Fort Canning Park took us a good 40 mins, but was very pleasant as there is so much to see. The river walk is the best route to follow.

Definately recommed this hotel if you wish to explore Singapore.
