The Conrad Centennial Singapore is probably Singapore's most impressive Hilton property. Consistent to the global brand standards for Conrad hotels, the rooms here in this property are spacious and whilst the facilities and furnishings are carefully maintained, the dated design is definitely in need of a refresh to reposition the property to be in line with newer Conrad hotels around the world. The Centennial Suites here at the Conrad Centennial Singapore are beautiful with plenty of living space - with that said, the layout of the suite has always been baffling to me. As I was 'window shopping' for hotel rooms this evening, I noticed that an announcement has been placed to notify future guests that the hotel will be undergoing progressive rejuvenation works from June 2017 and this is expected to complete by the end of January 2018.
