On Orchard Road, a shopper's paradise
The Marriott is located on Orchard Road, an iconic street in Singapore lined by shops. Named for its many trees, Orchard Road is packed with visitors and locals, especially on the weekends, but many malls are connected by underground passages for those looking to avoid the crowds -- or adverse weather.
This 393-room Marriott is an upscale business hotel with top-notch amenities: A fitness center, a spa, five dining options, and a gorgeous pool. The location on Orchard Road, an iconic street lined by shops, is another upside. Rooms are modern and high-design: Dark wood accents and shades of blue, grey, and gold in the carpeting and furniture give them a sophisticated look. Tech features include flat-screen TVs inset in the walls, as well as iPod docks, but there's a fee for Wi-Fi. This hotel is a solid, luxurious option for travelers of all types -- families, couples, business travelers -- but the inland location means there are no water views.
