If like me, you enjoy staying at the Pan Pacific and PARKROYAL hotels on weekends (or even when you are traveling for leisure and business), you should definitely consider getting the DISCOVERY Membership. While I have initially bade farewell to my DISCOVERY Black Status, I also wrote about the opportunity to win it back. The most important point however is that the DISCOVERY Membership gives you at least 10% off the published rates online - this includes breakfast-inclusive rates!
While I have previously enjoyed savings for being a member during my stay at the Rydges Melbourne in 2014, discounts were not available at participating Singapore properties until quite recently. The PARKROYAL on Beach Road for instance, offers 10% off the BAR and Bed and Breakfast rates for DISCOVERY Members. It is completely free to join and so there's really zero reason why you should not do it. The program also offers really great benefits like 9AM check-in, 6PM check-out and double upgrades if you hit top-tier black status.
Even though I have only mentioned the Pan Pacific and PARKROYAL brands, the DISCOVERY benefits extend to all participating properties under the Global Hotel Alliance portfolio of brands. It is definitely interesting to see how the DISCOVERY program is evolving and improving over the years and I can't wait to stay at another one of the properties under GHA!
