I got a good last minute deal over a website for a weekend trip to Singapore and booked The Orchard Hotel. It is situated right on the end of Singapore’s most prominent shopping strip on Orchard Road. Unfortunately, they did not have the room available that I booked, so they ‘upgraded’ me to one of their signature rooms. Pretty tiny rooms that have great design and functionality, but they were small. The second night my more spacious club room in the other wing of the busy hotel was available and I liked it so much that I extended my stay for 6 days. Their internet connection is lightning fast. I clocked it at 3Mps. That’s the fastest internet connection I have ever experienced in any hotel around the globe. My room charge included 2 pieces of free laundry a day. I left my laundry on the bed in the morning and had it back from the cleaners by late afternoon 🙂 That’s great service. Guys who enjoy vibrant nightlife will enjoy the place because right next to it you find Orchard Towers. It’s a shopping complex at daytime, but converts into 4 floors of bars and discos at night time with exotic people to watch and meet. It’s a melting pot of cultures, but most of the ladies in Orchard Towers are Filipinas. A lot of fun for single travelers who want to party all night and retreat in a first class hotel next door.
