The InterContinental Singapore is adjacent to a row of native Peranakan shops, allowing guests to browse artwork and other handmade goods that recall the city’s Chinese, Malay and European culture. All 403 guestrooms are decked out in smart British colonial décor and modern amenities make this hotel an ideal spot for business travelers. Elsewhere, there are two restaurants (cooking up Japanese and Chinese cuisine), a fitness center and lush rooftop garden; the outdoor pool offers a taste of serenity that belies the hotel’s bustling downtown location. Best of all is the prime location in Marina Bay: You’re just minutes from the popular Bugis Street Shopping District.
In the Area
Visit the Sultan Mosque, dating to 1928 and among the city’s oldest landmarks, for an historic photo-op, stopping along nearby Kandahar Street to browse the markets and artisan stalls that crowd the streets and alleyways. In Chinatown, stop by the restored Heritage Centre to browse art and cultural relics from Singapore’s early Chinese history. For a bird’s eye view of the city, ride the 541-foot Singapore Flyer, the world’s largest observational wheel, for a 30-minute look at the metropolis from above. And make time for Gardens by the Bay, a Marina Bay-area sculptural park and conservation area with a variety of themed gardens and natural attractions.
How to Get There
This hotel really has a perfect price-quality ratio for Singapore. Wonderful rooms. Excellent restaurants, lounge, service, etc.
The only real point of critique is the pool area which is simply average.
It was my first time staying at this hotel and it met all expecations. Was fortunate to be upgraded to the club floor and hence had access to the club lounge for breakast and afternoon tea/snacks and happy hour drinks/hor d'oeuvres.
The room was spacious and well-appointed, laundry service was prompt and the fitness centre is opened 24 hours and quite sizable for a hotel gym.
Staff were very attentive and friendly.
Overall, the hotel met all my expectations.
What an amazing stay! Though I entered several Intercontinental Hotels, it was my first time to stay in one. The room was clearly showcasing the history of the place and the Singapore culture & architecture. Definitely not the most modern hotel room, but very functional, comfortable with fabulous bathroom amenities. Even if the room was located on the first floor, right on North Bridge road, the soundproof was excellent. The Fitness Center is spacious, provided with Sauna and the needful equipment. A floor above, you can enjoy the swimming pool, just the right size, the right water temperature and a fabulous view on the hotel's facade and surroundings. The lobby lounge is truly impressive, but the InterContinental Club Lounge is magnificent. Service, food selection & quality, comfort, all is there from morning to evening to delight you. Thanks to Ann & her team for the superb service and for making me feel so special. I'll definitely come back.
