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 …
... everything from tea sets and chopsticks to decorative scarves and treats. Our exploration of the area ended up at the main building, a Buddhist temple five stories tall with tens of thousands of Buddhist statues. We entered through the back, so a short time into our wandering through the temple a man scared me mid-picture to let me know that I had to put on a sarong to cover my legs and shawl for my shoulders. I found some available from the temple to borrow for our ...
... the house and even though it had been completely remodeled there were still some homes left which hadn't changed. Of course there is not much that Mike recognized after 50 years and neither did I who came here as a tourist in 1980 but there are a few landmarks like the old Raffles Hotel or Tangs department store which brought back memories. Then we had a good wander through the Botanic Garden. It is huge and ...
... knowledeable about the country. He brought us to the largest Hawker centre in Singapore at an old airport. It was a lot busier than the one we went to earlier in the day. He mentioned that the true Hawker stands specialize in only a few dishes. Some of the dishes true to Singapore were the oyster omelet, bbq stingray, and satay. I had some stir fried sweet potato leaves with some hot sauce. Very tasty! We drank some fresh sugar cane. ...
... old and young celebrating with dancing, singing, fire juggling, amazing floats and unbelievable traditional and non-traditional costumes! Whilst Andy thought they were singing Christian praises ('Save the Lord'), we eventually worked out they were singing 'Singapore, Singapore!' What an amazing welcome Singapore put on for us!
After about an hour of watching the parade, we reluctantly left to take a ride on the Singapore ...
