With our recent trip, my husband booked the hotel for us so I was a little bit excited because we’re going to stay in a five-star luxury hotel. Sheraton Towers Singapore is located in Scotts Road, 2 minutes walk to Newton Interchange Train Station, 6 minutes walk to Newton Food Centre and 10 minutes walk to Orchard Road.
From Changi Airport, we just took a taxi on our way to the hotel. The staff immediately assisted us in getting our luggage from the taxi trunk to the lobby. I gave our passports to my husband and I checked the lobby.
After checked-in, staff ushered us to our room. You need the keycard to use the elevator, you cannot press your designated floor if you will not tap the keycard. In other hotels, once na may kasama ka sa elevator na nagtap na ng key, you can press the button but here, you need to use your own key card unless same floor kayo ng kasabay mo.
Let’s have a room tour. What I like in this room is the bedside panel for air conditioning, lights and alarm clock because I don’t need to stand up to control the coldness of room or to turn on/off the light.
We are happy that there is a bath tub, we always love bath tub because we don’t have that at home. Hehehe! There is also thermostat controlled shower fixture, just like our hotel in Japan.
My favorite in this hotel is the complimentary use of smartphone device with free services such us unlimited calls, unlimited 3G mobile internet access and comprehensive Singapore City Guide. I was super happy because I have no more roaming charges for this trip. I was able to update my husband using the smartphone device.
The room includes two free buffet breakfast and child rate is SGD22++. I was excited at first because I'm looking forward to eating buffet breakfast but I was surprised when I saw the food choices. I have to accept the fact that I’m not the Philippines so few options for me.
I’m very particular about food so I’m hesitant to try other dishes so for the last three days I’ve been eating the same thing, bread, sausage, bacon and egg. The only difference is the rice, first day is yellow rice, second day is butter rice and third day is Nasi Lemak rice. Hehehe!
I noticed that most of the guests were on business attire maybe because this hotel is near in Central Business District. we're only few guests who are wearing casual attire or should I say rash guard for my son. Anyway, I love my view here, nakakarelax.
Every day they will clean your room and replenish the toiletries and complimentary water, tea and coffee but on our fourth day, I was surprised when I opened the door, the room was still the same then I saw a note on the floor.
“We stopped by in order to clean up but we noticed your "Do not disturb request". Please call to reschedule, time 2PM”
So my son, press the privacy button without me knowing it. Well, what do you expect, kids love to press any buttons.
During our last day, we decided not to go to Gardens by the Bay because my husband promised to my son that they will swim. Sheraton Towers Singapore has in-house sauna, swimming pool and fitness centre. My husband and son only tried the swimming pool because of limited time.
That is one of the reasons why I prefer booking in affordable accommodation because most of the time you are just out and you cannot enjoy the facilities and amenities of the hotel. But I’m not complaining because we enjoyed our stay in Sheraton Towers Singapore, I love our comfortable bed and pillows, hotel service and of course it is near MRT.
The only downside of this hotel is, there are no nearby restaurants. There is Newton Food Centre but during our visit, it was closed for renovation and will resume on September 8 so during our second night my son and I have no choice but to order in the hotel.
We all know that hotel foods are expensive. Good thing my son and I enjoyed our meal, dapat lang SGD32 ito. Hehehe!
Don’t forget to use your SPG card for points.
