... dodged...if the Visas, and our passports, got there on time.
We ate dinner in Oscar’s, the fine hotel restaurant. Many local people were dining there. We asked the waitress for recommendations of local dishes, ordered and enjoyed them.
We met Sunday morning with a friend of Cindy’s, Wang Ya Hui. She patiently answered our questions about Singapore, and then took us on a tour of the shopping center food ...

Stayed here for a few nights while homeless during my move to Singapore. Good hotel close to everything and was priced to suit a city location.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Singapore
Long time ago - but it was good then
all i can say is that i stayed on business level and it was ace!!!
room wasn;t that big tho, but very clean and modern as i remember
but the service was truly awesome, very impressed indeed, personal at just the right level
nice lounge for meeting up - especially if there's more than you staying
expect it would be quite chatty in there anyway
Hilton Singapore still in the 1970s
Agree with the revue from the Diamond VIP member above. Don't expect an upgraded room, since there are none. The "executive" floors are exactly the same as the other floors. The rooms and bathrooms are clean, but very dated - think 1970s. The in-room book on Singapore is 13 years old - some of the places no longer exist. This is an overrated hotel living off the hilton name. Its time hilton yanked the franchise from the hotel owner.
I stayed at the Hilton upon arriving in Singapore after the long flight from LA via Tokyo. The flight arrived at 1:10a, so I did not arrive at the hotel until almost 2a. I had used HHonors points for a reward night. The hotel has a great location and a wonderful breakfast. The rooms are okay, but the hotel is a bit dated. My request for late check-out was granted.
Hilton Singapore ---
The Hilton Singapore does not seem to reward Hilton Diamond members. Do not expect any room upgrade nor access to the Executive Lounge.
The compensation for Diamond member is a full breakfast at the Cafe Restaurant and a welcome drink at the bar.
The rooms are not large and decoration and furniture definitely needs a bit of updating. The bed is clean and so is the toilet. However the toiletries look cheap and definitely does not have the 5-star appeal.
The roof-top pool is quite small and the gym is so-so only.
The hotel is currently undergoing some form of renovation.
For the same cost, you can get a true 5-star hotel with better rooms and service such as the Conrad or Mandarin.
I would give it 6 stars if I could
Awesome room!! They paid my cabfare because the cabbie could not get his credit card machine to work. Then they upgraded me to this huge, beautiful suite (it was 2 rooms together). The people were great, the room was great.
We booked an executive room and the lounge and staff were great. The staff took the time to talk to us, were very helpful, and the hotel is very central. Excellent experience!
Not very attractive
It was only average if not below average. Location wise, not exactly central of Orchard rd, there are lots of hotels at the similar price yet offer more convenient location. The hotel renovation was kinda old and room was not very spacious compared to other hotels.
It was fine, kind of expensive.
Stayed 2 nights in October 2004. Very nice staff. Consierge was helpful. It's right on Orchard road, so you can walk and shop like crazy. I paid $303 singapore dollars per night including tax and charges. Kind of pricy. Roof top pool was nice. We had a 1 am flight leaving Singapore. On the last day we checked out at 2pm, checked our bags at the front and went to Sentosa for the day. Got back at 9pm and the guy at the Hilton health club then let us each take a shower for free, which was nice. Also look at the Conrad, which has better rooms, but is over near Sun Tec City. Stay at the cheaper of the two. With the MRT and the shopping at the Citylink, transportation between the two (and to other places) is easy.
