A hotel that garnered many attention in its building facade and its structure, Parkroyal on Pickering is one of my "must stay" hotel even before it was opened in January this year. Love the design of the hotel by Woha, a local architect company, that looks like stacks of cardboard on top of one another. Touted a green hotel, there are certainly heaps of greenery in the hotel, which I saw in their skypark on level 5, and some greeneries along the corridors, and even the tech stuff within the room, are some initiatives to make this hotel green for the environment.
During the check in, guess the staff that handled us was unfamiliar with the check ins for locals, which took her around 10mins just to get our check-in done. But the welcome drink, does make this business hotel somewhat "resort feel".
Upon entering the room, the woody design captured my attention, especially the sliding doors that can separates the bathroom area from the room, which differentiates its design from its sister hotel in KL. The large glass window allows natural lighting into the room, but as I got a room on level 6, which may occasionally get to see gardener manning their greeneries outside the room, thus privacy can be compromise if you do not lower the curtains.
I find the gadget that control the air condition, room lighting etc, pretty cool! And the bed was comfortable as well as the bench that was beside the glass window. Great for some reading if you are spending more time in the room.
One place you shouldn't miss is the swimming pool on level 5, and the nice little chill out "huts" located around the pool level. It did gave me the resort feel, but instead of blue sky and sea, you get to see some Singapore skyline.
Overall this is a nice hotel to stay in, be in a staycation for locals or a well located hotel for the overseas visitors. And definitely I will want to check out its other room in the near future.
