Conrad Centennial Hotel Room Review : 13 Reasons why you should have a staycation there

Planning a Staycation?

Conrad Singapore Lobby
The impressive lobby, and the circular stairs
How about Conrad Centennial Hotel. For most, Conrad would be associated with weddings. To us, it is a hidden gem for a staycation.

Wedding at Conrad

Here are 13 Reasons why you should have a staycation at Conrad

Why 13?

If you had noticed the facade of Conrad, you can spot a distinct figure 13 on it. It was quite odd to have the number 13 in the hotel given its western meaning. However, in Chinese Feng Shui Context, the number symbolises 'perennial growth' and 'definitely vibrant' when converted to Chinese.

With that in mind, let us bring you 13 reasons why you should stay in Conrad for a staycation base on our own recent stay at Conrad. This experience is base on staying in an executive room with Executive Lounge Services.

Enjoying a Conrad Moment
1 The Spacious Room
Conrad Executive Room Singapore
Conrad Executive King Room
Our rooms were the newly renovated Asian theme Executive rooms. The rooms are set in hues of brown and have a footprint that is considerably large.

The beds were a delight to sleep on. Not too hard nor too soft, sleep is always a bliss. To make it even more appealing, you can opt for your own choice of pillows if you are not satisfied with what is provided. There are up to 15 different types of pillows you can request for the stay at Conrad.

Each room comes with en suite with a marble-clad bathroom that includes a separate shower stall with rain shower and a large bath. The bathroom itself is as spacious as the room.

2 Amenities in the Room
Toilet Amenities
It is in the little attention to amenities that would make a stay in a hotel memorable.
The rooms come with a full set of toiletries and enough towels to last for a short stay. Complimentary tea and coffee machine are also provided.

If you are a tourist or using Conrad for a business trip, you would be glad to know that stationery are provided. Universal power sockets, USB ports and the intelligent lightning system serves to make your stay more comfortable. There is also a safe provided in the room.

Bathrooms are provided together with usual amenities such as slippers, hairdryers and iron. You may also opt for Complimentary pressings for a maximum of 3 items per stay if your package allows.

3 The View

The expansive views from the rooms are also a delight. For executive floors, you get a room on a higher level which gives you a view of the Marina Skyline.

Some rooms will also allow you to have a peek at the Singapore Flyer and Gardens by the Bay.

It is not surprising to sit by the window, have a sip of tea and watch the world goes by.

4 The Special Touches

It is in the little things that make a hotel stay special. With that regards, Conrad achieves the accolade with its subtle yet exquisite touch.

The rooms came with a complimentary bowl of fruits and a box of chocolates. For VIP guests, there is also a platter of chocolates and biscuits to entice your sweet tooth.

Needless to say, the boys enjoyed their sugar rush.

Another charming gesture is the birthday cake. Knowing that we are celebrating birthdays at the hotel, Conrad kindly provided us with a cake for the day.

For the running enthusiast, there is also a planned route for you that you can take along for the run along Marina Bay and Gardens by the Bay.

Last but not least, Conrad is sincere about playing their part to protect the global environment and they hope to impart the same values to the guest.

6 High Tech Living
Open your doors with Hilton Honors app
With the advancement in technology, integrating it to the room is a bonus. Using the Hilton Honours app, you could do things like unlocking your doors with a digital key, order room services, request for housing and more.

What's more, for Premium Wi-Fi package, you will have access to Pressreader. You can choose to download over 2000 magazines and newspaper for you to read.

For families, the pool would always be a magnet during a staycation. A pool with a view of the Singapore flyer gets bonus points from us. The height of the pool is at 1.1 to 1.3m, perfect for young kids.

Parents can relax while watching their children swim.

For adults, a good workout can be accomplished at the gym next to the pool.
