Crowne Plaza Changi Airport – opening early next year – aims to appeal to a broader market than just transit passengers, despite its location next to the soon-to-launch Terminal 3.
“We’ll be a place to get together for lunches and brunches, chill out as well as hold meetings,” said general manager Mark Winterton.
Conceptualised with details reflecting Singapore’s tropical, Asian character, yet also its high-tech and efficient reputation, the 320-room property aims to blend a resort and corporate feel as seamlessly as possible. Visitors will be drawn into a refreshing oasis, beginning with a trellised façade that introduces open walkways lined with lush greenery, trend-setting sky gardens and beautiful water features. At night, the hotel takes on an entirely different persona with strategically placed lighting.
Guestrooms start from 36sqm and include 27 suites with queen-sized beds; some offer private patios and poolside sundecks. Besides broadband internet access, a helpful Bedside Shopping Menu will be available, offering guests business and personal items they may have forgotten to bring along.
Conference spaces will be just as attractive to occupy, boasting pre-function areas with reflecting water skylights and creative oval-shaped meeting rooms. Wi-Fi services run throughout the hotel, facilitating quick connectivity, aided as well by numerous corners ideal for sudden brainstorming. To ensure productive events, Crowne Plaza’s Meeting Success services answer the needs of the finickiest event planner. It includes a dedicated point of contact, two-hour response on enquiries and daily meeting debriefing sessions.
Dining and entertaining are catered to with outlets such as an all-day café, Imperial Treasure – a well-known Chinese restaurant – the Sports Bar and Lobby Lounge, equipped with an internet station just in case the urge to check emails proves irresistible.
