Singapore Marriott Hotel - 5 star luxury hotel in the middle of Orchard Road

Holiday in Singapore is never complete without a visit to city's shopping disrict, Orchard Road. Indeed, Singapore holiday can be best enjoyed if you stay in Orchard Road. The road and surrounding area is one of the most upscale areas in Singapore and offers many beautiful hotels.

Singapore Marriott Hotel at the junction between Orchard Road and Scotts Road is probably the best located hotel in Orchard Road. The location is almost in the middle of Orchard Road and right next to Orchard Road MRT Station (you can actually go into hotel directly from MRT link) so it is very accessible. The location is not only for shoppers, it is also very good place for business travelers : Orchard Road MRT Station is just 2 stations away from Singapore's Central Business District's Raffles Place MRT Station.

We have stayed here in 2009 and again much later in early 2014. The experience is quite different : Singapore Marriot Hotel was renovated in 2012 and it is now more modern and luxury. The large, comfortable beds, clean and luxurious bathroom and the great view from the rooms (choose a high floor room looking towards the Orchard Road) makes it a special stay.

Marriott is one of the largest hospitality companies in the world. If you would like to take a look at new discounts, voucher codes and deals, you can take a look at

Iconic Singapore Marriot Hotel is right in the  middle of Orchard Road and makes it very convenient to move
around in Singapore even under heavy rain.
When we are in there, we had a chance to visit major Singapore attractions : Sentosa Island, Singapore Zoo, Singapore Bird Park and Singapore Night Safari. The hotel's location is very near to the service buses for these attractions so you do not need taxi or MRT. The food in the restaurants are good (breakfast is very good) but if you need suggestions about what to eat, skip Orchard Road and just walk to FarEast-Plaza on Scotts Road. This old and not so bright looking mall has very good restaurants on the higher floors and is a popular place for locals. 313@Somerset food court was also quite nice. We did not like the food courts in Ion Orchard and Ngee Ann City but the restaurants in these two malls are quite upscale and nice.

Singapore Marriot Hotel is neighbour to a building named Shaw House which has a 3D IMAX movie theater. Try to catch a movie there. We also liked the upper floors of Paragon Shopping Mall nearby which had a nice indoor playground for kids and a lot of kid oriented shopping opportunities.
