Marriott Hotel Singapore
Travel Blogs from Singapore
Boys did some snorkeling while I walked around the resort and took photos. Returned back to Singapore in the late afternoon and enjoyed happy hour and sunset view in the hotel lounge. Enjoyed a stroll along Orchard Road in the cool evening breeze to finish a long day.
Head straight to Vivo City for connection to Aquarium on Santosa Island. In the afternoon, walked around in Chinatown and then headed over to Boat quay and Clark quay for dinner. Passed by a 肉骨茶 that looked very well known, so we had a light dinner first before 2nd dinner at Jumbo Seafood for the most famous chili crab.
Heritage walk around Marina Bay during the day and Night Safari after dark.
We arrived in Singapore at 6 am from New Zealand. For me it was an uneventful flight (given my new friend, Ambien) and I pretty much slept the whole way. Brian and Anna were not so lucky and Anna had a horrible time with her sinuses when we were landing. She felt much better after we got off the plane and got to the hotel. …
Except for the stifling humidity, steamy heat and admixture of tropical rain-forest, Singapore will remind you more of Chicago or New York than most Asian cities. Its skyline is as packed with modern skyscrapers as its roads are with cars and scooters. And this small island nation (actually comprised of 63 islands but with one main one) is crowed, …

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott Hotel Singapore
I echo the praises for the Marriott's location at Orchard and Scotts Rds. MRT is basically right out the door. There's plenty of shopping with Tang Plaza, Paragon, Ngee Ann City, etc. adjacent or short walk away, and plenty of nightlife with Bar None and the after hours favorite The Living Room inside the Marriott, and Brix practically next door at the Grand Hyatt. If you need to make adjustments or adds to your SQ itinerary, there's a plush Singapore Airlines office at the Paragon not far away. And there's plenty of travel agencies nearby to do last minute getaways.
Bad for money
I am stayed for one night in this hotel. But, this is a terrible NIGHT for me in my life. I have booked the hotel 2 weeks in advance. But when the time i checked in, the poor staff still have to let me wait for 2 hours to check in!! At the time, only 2 customers at the Q line. When my turn, the staff asked me to wait for one hour to allow cleaner to clean room. I AM SO WONDERED WHY SHOULD WAIT FOR AN HOURS? The hotel check out time is 12noon, but the cleaners need 3 hours to clean the room?? Add in, the room is very old, furniture is very rundown. I WILL NOT COME BACK THIS HOTEL AGAIN!
Great hotel in a superb location. I have never had a bad experince with Marriott and this hotel was very good. Only stayed one night on the way to BBK. Room service was very impressive and breakfast was very good in the restaurant.
Staff were friendly and provided great service.
No complaints, only praise.
One of the best locations
I live in Singapore, but stayed here one night, since our apartment wasn't ready. We have had many friends stay here on business. Central location opposite the Orchard MRT. Located on Orchard Road-it's surrounded by shopping malls, movie theaters and restaurants. This street gets really crowded on weekends-the epicenter of Singaporean life.
Inside the hotel-it's just a Marriott. You know what your getting, but nothing too special. A good business hotel.
Found the cafe crossroads and the buffet expensive and not worth the price. If you are here for Thanksgiving, they do serve the American spread with turkey and all the fixings.
People watching at the outside bar
I stayed at the Marriott. I was by myself on business. Stayed for 8 days. The hotel is perfectly located. It has a great outside bar for people watching. About a thousand people walk by every hour. If you have to go by yourself this is the place to stay. People there are very nice. Genrally there is no tipping. I tipped all the wait staff and was treated like a king. Check out the pool on the roof, very cool!
The hotel reception and lobby area is the best part of it. The hotel is due for a major facelift. The rooms are spacious but old, with untasteful furnishing.
We stayed there for couple of days and on our last day we asked for the late check out at 4pm, the receptionist said he'll check the availability and very nicely told us they can give us the late check out at half a daily rate. How nice, but we said no thanks. Most hotels in singapore will ask you if you want an upgrade, once you say yes please they'll tell you, that's only ?dollars a night. I don't think that's a professional selling tactic from the 5 star properties
Marriott Singapore hits the spot
Great location on Orchard Road, above Tang's Department Store and the MRT subway station.
Room was fine - nicely appointed, if not super-luxurious. Club Lounge very nice for breakfast or a pre-dinner Tiger Beer (or whatever you like).
Pleasant poolside restaurant and I particularly liked the roadside cafe set-up, which offers reasonably priced food and drink in a "inside/outside" spot where you can watch the hustle and bustle of this busy thoroughfare.
I'd happily return.
Stayed there in Feb, 2004. Because of its octagon shape, the room is shaped a bit funny. However, it offered all the good amenities that you expect from Marriott Hotel, and it was quite comfortable. The service was very good as well.
5-Star Facilities & Location
This is about the best location you can be if you want to be at the heart of all the action for shopping, eating, and sightseeing.
Rooms are good ... Marriott standard ... but you are paying for the good brand and good location. I think it's worth it if you are making a one-time visit. You get 5-star standards which generally speaking, the Asian hotels deliver much better (and much cheaper) than western comparisons.
Bar None located in the hotel's basement is one the city's coolest night spots. In fact, night life in Singapore is much more happening than the island's sqeaky clean image suggest.
