We have a 2 night stopover in Singapore on the way back to the UK from Australia. I think i've decided on Holiday Inn Parkview after the recommendations on TA as we are a family of 4 and they will accommodate us all in one room. However they charge a 1/2 day rate for an extended checkout from 1400 till 1800. My thoughts are to checkout at 1400 leave the bags at the hotel go into city for something to eat etc then make our way to the airport. What happens then? Can we book a 6 hour block at one of the transit hotels as our flight doesn't leave till 2355 and then be able to use the pool or is it just as well to pay the 14 sgd or so for use of the pool and shower facilities. Can we check in our luggage on arrival and just keep our hand luggage?
Any thoughts suggestions would be very much appreciated.
