TravelPod Member ReviewsGrand Park Orchard Singapore
We stayed here for two nights in a premier king room. We loved the location. Right on Orchard Road it's in the midst of all of the lively activity of the area, close to all of the shops and lots of options for places to eat.
We arrived in the early hours of the morning, having booked our room for the previous evening so we could rest after a long flight. We were greeted politely and quickly by the porter who took care of our bags for us straight away, from the car which the hotel had organised to pick us up from the airport, while we went ahead and checked in. Check in was friendly and quick which we appreciated at the late hour.
We were pleased with our room which was on a higher floor. It was a good sized room, with modern decor. We had a king size bed, good pillows although the mattress a bit firm. Separate desk area and comfortable chair. The bathroom was a great size with a bath and separate shower in a wet room, good shower pressure and a decent amount of toiletries. Appreciated the bottles of complimentary water and nice tea selection. We had good sleep quality, although on a busy road we didn't hear street noise.
We loved the handy phone which is a smart phone given to each guest for the duration of their stay and includes free local and international calls, unlimited wi fi and also comes preloaded with contact details for the hotel and a range of useful posts like local places to eat, shop etc. It was great having this when we went out as we could use Google maps and make use of the preloaded information.
We made use of the pool which was a great way to cool off and enjoyed a few cocktails at the pool bar. Breakfast wasn't the greatest experience as it was very busy and we had to wait outside for a while to be seated and once inside quite a delay at the egg station and some things hadn't been replenished. Dinner on the other hand at the same restaurant was delicious.
Would recommend if you want to stay in a great central location, with good service and a comfortable spacious room. Handy phone is also a great inclusion.

Arrived in Singapore after a comfortable flight with Singapore Airlines. Our flight left Melbourne at 6:30pm and we got into our hotel Grand Park Orchard at around 1:00am local time. We'd included the night before in our booking so we could go straight to our room and sleep which was great as we didn't get any sleep on the plane. After a shower it …
Day 1 of our trip! Arrived to a very hot and sticky Singaporean night, about 31 degrees when we got to the hotel at 10.30pm AEST ( about 8.30pm here). A shower, quick meet and greet, we then collapsed into bed. Our beautiful hotel in Sentosa Cove has some very interesting design details...the hand with vase by the door is special... But also some very comfy beds! Today saw us have a delicious breakfast in ...
... a restaurant/bar complex. It is quite spectacular all lit up at night. We headed down to a Scottish Bar, The Highlander, and made ourselves comfy as the young Singaporean waiters in their kilts looked after us. Ali had some mini burgers (no really!) and the rest of us shared some tapas plates which were delicious. Some good Scottish beer for me, something less interesting for the others (I forget) and we had a lovely evening in balmy Singapore.
... life. On the other hand, in Kuala Lumpur the rich, I noticed a woman who was going through the garbages looking for...? By her looks, she wasn't looking for diamonds and pearls. Will thereever be a common thread that better connects us to each other? There are many groups and organizations who struggle for more justic in this world either on a local, regional, national and international levels. I put my hope in some of them. Thank you, Sylvia, for those important ...
... to small terrace shops just off side streets a short step away.
We stopped in at the Information Centre and organised a couple of bus trips, a Zoo visit, and a visit to the Gardens by the Bay - more on all that as and when it happens!!!
We then walked back to the hotel sit in the air conditioning for a bit before heading out to lunch. Singaporeans love their food courts as there ...
