Marina Mandarin Hotel Singapore

Our friends with their kids arrived to Singapore this week and they wanted to stay in hotel here (privacy is king). They originally wanted to stay in Marina Bay Sands Hotel but the wife confused the name of hotels and they have ended up staying in Marina Mandarin Hotel.

Marina Mandarin Hotel is a large (575 room), 5-Star hotel at Marina Square. It is integrated to Marina Square Shopping Mall. The rooms overlook Marina Bay and have a very good view of Marina Bay Sands and some parts of central business district.

The hotel building is quite interesting, it is a atrium composed of one vertical facade and two sloped facades. So there is a huge, empty space in the building which is lighted by a large glass roof and houses restaurant facilities of the hotel. This is not the first time I have been to this hotel, one of my friends from Australia regularly visits Singapore for visits and sometimes he stays here. Actually Marina Square area is full of these high end hotels for business and leisure travelers. It is because; the place is very near to cities central business district (CDB). It is also near-by one of Singapore’s casinos, Marina Bay Sands, and with a short MRT ride, you can arrive anywhere conveniently.

Although the price for the hotel room is normal for Singapore, 350 SGD per night is a little expensive. But these guys were even willing to pay 500+ SGD for Marina Bay Sands so the price did not hurt them.

For Singaporeans and Singapore’s residents, the hotel has weekend staycation promotions. One of them is named Weekend Retreat from $298++ per night in Executive Deluxe Room. This 1 night stay here comes with Complimentary buffet breakfast for 2 at AquaMarine, 20% off F&B dining credit for all outlets inclusive of Room Service (excluding Ruth's Chris Steak House), complimentary 24 hours internet access and 1 complimentary self-car parking per room per stay (subject to availability). The other is named Meritus In Style At Marina Mandarin Singapore and Daily Breakfast for Two, Two Hours of Internet Per Day and S$30 Food and Beverage Credit Per Day.
