Timeless and practical are the two key elements in Conrad Centennial Singapore’s design, and they can be seen everywhere from the edgy all-glass façade to the lobby that centers on the grand marble stairway and indoor bamboo garden. The hotel prides itself on its massive art collection of more than 3,400 paintings, pieces of sculpture and artifacts by both local and international artists, on display all over the 31-story property.
Bed and Bath
With windows that run almost floor to ceiling, rooms at the Conrad Centennial afford skyline views of Singapore and the Suntec City Conventional Hall. In contrast to the modernist exterior, rooms greet with soft pastel colors, silk violet bedding and honey-wood furniture. With the smallest room at 430 square feet, all 507 guestrooms are spacious and all are fitted with 46-inch LCD TVs, home-theatre systems, CD players, bathtubs with separate glass shower stalls and daily fruit selections.
A favorite among locals in the area, Oscar’s Restaurant is an award-winning bistro and alfresco terrace bar on the hotel’s ground floor. The atmosphere here is buzzing and casual, with international dishes served up around the clock. Alternately, the Golden Peony dishes out refined Cantonese cuisine and the pool bar seduces with a range of sexy cocktails. The Centennial Spa whips up an impressive range of luxurious body treatments and massages in a serene setting.
In the Area
At the Conrad Centennial, you’re right in the heart of Singapore. The Suntec City Conventional Hall, the Esplanade-Theatres on the Bay, and the Promenade MRT station are all within walking distance. The hotel also provides direct access to the Millenia Walk and Marina Square, where you’ll be spoiled for choice with a constellation of restaurants and shops. For a different view of Singapore, catch a ride on the nearby Singapore Flyer, the world’s largest observation wheel, or immerse yourself in the tropical greenery of the city-state at Gardens by the Bay, a 250-acre park built to amplify Singapore’s status as a “City in a Garden.”
How to Get There
Will start from the check in process until the actual stay.
I arrived about 6am and as expected the room wasn't available because the check in begins from 3pm. I was offered a luggage storage facility and was kindly shown the shower facilities, etc. Being a Gold member, I had expected to be upgraded automatically to an Executive room but no upgrade was even suggested or offered. When I did ask, I got told that they don't have to offer any upgrade because I didn't book directly on Hilton website and instead booked via Expedia. But a small upgrade was given to a Grand Deluxe room. And a fresh fruit basket was sent to me on my first day.
After a little tour of Singapore until 1ish I returned and the room was ready and my luggage was transported to the room already. Room looked really decent and had views of the back of the hotel. Only the rooms on the front of the hotel would have a view of Marina Bay View Hotel, but unfortunately I didn't know and nobody told me either.
Breakfast was decent and even had some Indian food, this really made me happy. It has fresh bakery sort of stuff, fruits, youghurts, hot foods, etc.
Overall good experience in general. If you decide to stay make sure to get a room with a view of Marina Bay Sands Hotel, that would be really good! And ask for any possible upgrades also.
As part of the Hilton chain. All good. Standards maintained. No complaints.
Except for Buffet Breakfast. The food quality of the Asian segment needs more improvement. If this hotel was in Europe, it’ll be rated excellent. But sadly, it’s in Singapore. Hence, the Asian food segment has to live up to its expectations but it didn’t. That’s the only flaw.
My husband and I had three days at the Conrad Centennial Singapore on our way home from a cruise. Arriving late at night check in was easy and quick. The room was a good size, clean and well maintained throughout. Service was friendly and efficient with breakfast included. We enjoyed the access to the Executive lounge for drinks and breakfast. Our included meal in their Golden Poeny Restaurant was so enjoyable we went back the next night and received a warm welcome. Hotel location is not too far from the wonderful Gardns by the Bay, a very short walk to the nearest train station and opposite Suntec City Shopping Centre.
This was our first stay in this hotel and we loved the entire stay. Reception staff (especially Catherine) was very welcoming and friendly, and helpful. Rooms were clean all the time and view from our room was fantastic.
Morning breakfast good. They had a good arrangement of welcoming guests and providing them a sitting place.
Lobby staff near the exit door was very friendly and helpful in explaining the right places to go and how to go etc. This saved a lot of our time.
Will certainly go there again.
This was our third trip to Singapore, previously we stayed in Marina Sands and Carlton. Marina was fun because of the pool on the roof, and nice view, but it felt very crowded. Carlton is in the city, close to Raffles Market place, but lacks the view of marina. Conrad has it both - it feels quite spacious and quiet but close to the action of the marina and 200meters from both a big Suntech mall and Downtown line MRT station. We were on a high floor with nice view of the water and downtown.
Executive lounges on 31st and 4th floors were crowded on the weekend, but eased up during the week. In the lounges you are getting seated at a table, not like in some other places when one can just roam around and find the place oneself. Food was adequate, not very plentiful, but a decent selection of Asian and European staples, including cheese and salad.
We would like to thank a waiter on the 31st floor lounge. If we are not mistaken, his name was Jeet. He was very attentive without putting pressure, and always responded fast and nicely to all our requests.
Overall we had a very nice stay and certainly will stay in Conrad again if we come to Singapore.
