Well after some general settling and during dinner around a friends place they suggested having a treat by going for Sunday brunch at a five star hotel....it didn't take a nano-second to say hell yeah! However shortly followed by the thought of how much it would cost mmmmm..... Anyway everything arranged and upon arriving at their place a taxi was …

I have seen it spelled both ways. Wesak Day is Buddha's Birthday, so it's kind of like Christmas. It's a national holiday in Singapore. We've been here several times near the holiday, but never on the day itself.
We began with a leisurely sleep-in, a huge breakfast at the Grand Club, and more spa time. I was completely psyched to be at …
Lee picked us up at the hotel at 645am. Luckily, the hotel opened up the breakfast buffet a little early at 640, so we were able to scarf some before heading to the airport. Lee took us for a spin through the free trade zone on the way to the airport. The Free Trade Zone is a geographically demarcated area where companies get a five year tariff …

I have stayed several times at this hotel and have been impressed in the past, but was disappointed on my most recent trip. I stayed 2 separate nights - 27 Aug 05 and 2 Sep 05. I was allocated different rooms in the Terrace Wing, which is currently being refurbished and needs it. I was not given any advice about the refurbishment until I checked in, otherwise I would not have booked this hotel. In my rooms, the 'one touch' bedside controls for the lighting no longer work or only work sporadically, the vertical blinds for the windows are ripped and broken, the paintwork is dirty, the plumbing is noisy and needs attention and the supposedly stored numbers in the telephone for concierge, room service etc do not work. These conditions were the same in both rooms that I had and I guess will be fixed in the refurbishment. The refurbishment work began around 8.40am and continued until around 6.30pm with audible drilling noises. The hotel desk said it would be 9am - 6pm but that was not correct. The refurbishment is scheduled to finish next Chinese New Year, so around early Feb 06 probably, with no reduction in price for the inconvenience. Until then, I would avoid this hotel as it can do so much better than it did for me recently.
We opted for one of the recently renovated club suites, and were pleasantly surprised with the size of the room upon check-in. Everything was very clean and in good condition. The view from the room was not great, but then I'm not sure that there is such a thing in the Orchard Road area!!
This hotel's best attribute is the location. Centered in the middle of Orchard St. (such good shopping!), this hotel is part of Singapore's downtown buzz. As for the hotel, the lobby is chic and trendy, but wreaked of cigarette smoke which nearly killed me as the check-in was soooo extremely slow. Let's just say the customer service is not above and beyond here. It is a business kind of hotel.
Based on reviews I opted for the club level rooms. Great decision as the breakfast was really diverse and much more than continental in my opinion. Same with the evening drinks and appetizers. You could make that a meal if you wanted...but of course, food in Singapore is so good we had to try and not eat too much in order to sample food outside the hotel!
Take this bed home with you!
for visitors to singapore, take one of the taxis to the centre for about £15 sterling - per taxi
grand hyatt not bad. we stayed for 2 nights on the way to and from melbourne in may 05. following suggestion of previous travellers booked club suite. xtra large comfortable bed, access to club floor, with canapes and booze included. friendly staff, eat out around the corner rather than expensive room service - loads of good quality local restaurants. if leaving for airport at night, pre book hotel mercedes - cost $35, but is worth it and it is waiting for you rather than you waiting for a taxi - sometimes their is a queue.
buffet breakfast on club floor is great, pool is superb. lots of staff, very attentive
will stay again - central for shopping
Fantastic room, location and value
My husband and I stayed in a Grand Deluxe Room in April 2005. The room was really a mini-suite, beautifully appointed and spacious. Bottled water and apples were replaced daily. The hotel restaurants were of a very high standard, and worth trying if you are happy to spend a bit more on good food. The location could not have been better- right near the main shopping malls of Orchard Rd and the MRT station. We had originally booked the Hilton, but when we saw what the Hyatt offered for the same price, we changed our booking at the last minute on line, and were VERY pleased with our choice in the end.
MONSIEUR Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger is a very nice gentleman and a very cool guy like myself. As Dr. Michael Lim The Travelling Gourmet, I meet a lot of VVIP hoteliers, celebrity chefs and winemakers, and I was privileged to meet and speak to Pierre on Valentine's Day 2005. He demonstrated how to open a bottle of his flagship Brut champagne and it literally exploded in his face. It was a champagne bomb and some champagne splashed on my best 100% cotton long pants too. We were in the Mezza-9 Bar of the Grand Hyatt Singapore. A lesser man would have blown his top and exploded too, and don't ask me why it happened because I honestly don't know. Perhaps the bottle was not so fresh or perhaps it was shaken and stirred by an inexperienced staff of the bar. Your guess is as good as mine, but the point is that I was very impressed by my friend Pierre's coolness under fire; although he was quite soaked to his eyebrows in lovely bubbly. He was as cool and calm as an SAS trooper armed with only an M16A2 assault rifle facing hordes of enemy soldiers behind enemy lines. Without a big fuss, he proceeded to open another bottle....perfectly this time, and we savoured his marvellous champagne, as he told me why his champagne is always good to the last drop. "When every bottle has my name on it, I make sure it is good!" Need I say more? Incidentally, they have great Japanese food in Mezza-9 restaurant at the Grand Hyatt Singapore. I love Taittinger with some Sushi and Sashimi!
Club Floor is fantastic.
We stayed at the hotel for a couple of days in August and we had a great time. I do agree that you should stay in the renovated club floor, it is superb. Our room was huge with a fantastic bathroom and large windows provided a good view of the cityscape, especially at night. On the club floor, breakfast is included in the chic club lounge, which also offers free coffee and snacks throughout the day and complimentary cocktails at night. Room service was fast and tasty and housekeeping was absolutely fantastic. The check in process is very personal and welcoming, Singaporeans offer the best customer service on earth. The Pool area is great, plenty of room with an excellent poolside restaurant. I will stay there again on my next visit.
Only get the new Suites!
The standard rooms here are not worth getting at all. They are very dark, old and have awful views. I immediately asked for a suite and only paid 40 SGD more - well worth the extra price. The new suites are fabulous! Flat screen TVs in the bedroom and the living room with a fantastic glass work desk and a beautifully modern and wonderful glass bathroom. Views are pretty much nonexistant, but location is convenient.
