Hotel in Singapore with good lobbyBack to Forum
Anonymous30 Jun 2013
I’d be grateful if anyone could make a suggestion for a hotel in Singapore that has a good lobby. I ask I as I need to meet a few clients and so would ideally like somewhere were there is a reasonable seating area / lounge in the lobby or close by.
I have stayed at the Regent in the past, but it is a little far out from the main business district. Last time the Fairmont, but no real seating in their lobby. I was thinking of potentially staying at the Intercontinental or Ritz Carlton, but have not been to either before so unsure of ‘lobby arrangements’.
Many thanks.30 Jun 2013
I personally like the Marina Bay Sands lobby a lot. It’s huge, better stil their exec lounge on the 57th floor…..that’s a treat for your customers as well!!30 Jun 2013
The Marina Bay Sands is a great location, but it can be very busy. The exec lounge is impressive, but I seem to recall you need to book a certain room type to have access.30 Jun 2013
The InterCon has a good sized and lively lobby (not the entrance and check in area which has very limited seating). It even has a secluded seating area up a staircase which is part of the lobby and ideal for your meeting clients. My preferred meeting venue there is the boardroom attached to the Club Lounge. It needs to be booked in advance with one hour free for club guests per stay. I have always found it impresses clients because of the old English Club decor and exclusive atmosphere. But if you are looking for a nice lobby, that isn’t bad either. Just avoid breakfast and high tea times when it gets a bit crowded. Having said that, not many people use the secluded area up the staircase so you may be okay at anytime.30 Jun 2013
You might try making an arrangement with a hotel to use the executive floor lounge. The Fullerton is well located and I have entertained non-guests in their executive lounge in the past. It’s a bit quieter than having a drink in a lobby and shows an effort to find a quiet place in a nice hotel. The view at the top of the Stanford is also nice. But I haven’t stayed there in a while.30 Jun 2013
Conrad Centennial Singapore. Plenty of seating options and they have amazing live bands playing in the lobby bar late into the evening. Their Executive Lounge on the top floor of the hotel is one of best hotel lounge in my opinion.1 Jul 2013
Alanorton – I would recommend the Swissotel the Stamford. The seating in the lobby is limited, but adjacent to it is the coffee place, where there is ample seating. Easy to get to, also by mrt
Also the new Park Royal at Upper Pickering, a bit more isolated, but close to mrt Clarke Quay.1 Jul 2013
Many thanks to all. Plenty to consider here and am most grateful for the feedback.
Intercon still looks to be an option, along with The Fullerton. Amex Fine Hotels programme as a good rate at the Mandarin Oriental, so tempted by this.
Thanks again,1 Jul 2013

I can’t honestly recommend the Fullerton as a place to stay, although the lobby is certainly impressive and it is incredibly convenient for the central business district. The rooms, however, are getting a bit tired and I have to say I have always found the hotel to be utterly soulless – hard to describe why, but I know friends who feel the same.2 Jul 2013
you may also try the seating area at the Grand Hyatt on Scotts Road, I can’t remember the name of the lounge on the lobby level but it is specifically meant for guests who want to meet business clients without going up to the executive lounge.

Thanks again for all contributions.
One final very quick question: has anyone stayed at the Mandarin Oriental, and if so, do they feel the lobby is fine for the odd meeting?2 Jul 2013
