The National Day Parade (NDP) 2016 returns to the new National Stadium after a 10-year hiatus - that's right, the National Stadium that is located along Kallang River! To celebrate Singapore's 51st birthday this year, the Conrad Centennial Singapore has launched two unique fireworks view room packages - that's right! You will be able to enjoy the fireworks display from your bedroom on the following three nights: 23 July, 30 July and 09 August (actual day!).

If you are looking for a hotel to stay in during the 2016 Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix (16-19 September 2016) this year, check out the Conrad Centennial Singapore because reward nights are wide open for redemption! While I usually do not advocate burning your Hilton HHonors Points in Singapore since that 60,000 points can be put to greater use, it is actually wise to use them for the F1 period if you intend on being here.
While shopping for hotel room nights (yes, I actually do that!), I realised that the Conrad Centennial Singapore has a HHonors Discount room rate listed - upon closer inspection, this room rate offers the same cancellation policy as the Easy Cancellation rate but it comes with a 10% discount - not bad at all! Strangely enough, I do not see an Advance Purchase (non-cancellable) rate so hopefully this is not a direction that the hotel (or brand) is moving towards.
