Being a business traveler I have to say I was very impressed with the Marriott Singapore. I normally stay in Hong Kong at the SkyCity Marriott and have to say the service here is by far more impressive. So let me begin. First, I do have to mention that I had correspondence with the reservations staff and requested I few of my normal items. One that the mini-bar be cleaned out [staying for 20 days I like to purchase some of my own items]. I also request additional bath towels; being in a hot climate 2-4 showers a day is common. Well, upon arriving not of these requests from fulfilled, but I don't seat the small stuff...nothing a phone call to "At your Service" won't handle.
The room is nice, bed comfortable as usual for the Marriott product. Laundry service is top of the line! Wonderful job! Only improvement I would suggest is easier access to the LED TV HDMI jacks; I like to plug my laptop in to the TV and watch them on the big screen. Some of the Marriott's have hard wired terminals at the work desk in the room.
One of the most impressive differences is in the Executive Lounge. The level of service and hospitality is phenomenal!! Alma [Guest Relations] has a fantastic staff up there...after the first day they knew my name and drink preference! The food selection in the evening is very good for a buffet style. They offer a different theme every night which adds a nice variety as opposed to the same old thing.
The gym and spa area is nice...gym has a good selection of machines and free weights. THe free weight are is small and if more than one person is in the are it can get crowded. The spa is nice...steam room, sauna, separate showers, two hot tubs.
I did visit the spa on several occasions for a deep tissue massage. The service was good and depending upon which massage therapist you had...each one has a different style. I do have to say that the spa offers an in room massage, which was wonderful [and very professional]. After your massage you don't have to make your way back to your room...
The pool area is postcard perfect! You definitely need to pay a visit to the pool side during your stay here!
Are negotiated room rate included breakfast at the restaurant on the lobby level. Again the Service is wonderful. Many thanks to all the ladies [Meg, Liz, and the rest] for their fantastic level of service and hospitality! Again after a day or two they remember your name, what you like to drink....wonderful. On top of the service the breakfast buffet is great! A wonderful variety of western, Asian, European cuisines... fresh made juice to order, yogurt smoothies...omelets [try the Singapore Crab Omelet!]
Only downsides to the hotel is that yes there is a lot of construction going on outside, but with a high room location the noise is minimum. Also the elevators are very slow....plan to wait for an elevator...plan ahead if you need to be somewhere in a hurry.
I look forward to returning to the Marriott again and again!
