Hotel Review: JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach (Premier Marina Bay View Room)

As a newly-minted Platinum Elite member in the Marriott Rewards program, I was eager to test out some of the benefits here in Singapore - it only makes sense to invest a good amount of money each year in selected loyalty programs if you are going to make use of the benefits that come with the status that you have worked so hard for. Since I have personally stayed in most of the Marriott International properties (including those from Starwood) here in Singapore, I opted for the JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach since I have not actually done a proper stay here.

Hotel Review: Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur (Le Meridien Club Room) - Conveniently Located in KL Sentral

I visited Kuala Lumpur a number of times last month to complete a series of mattress runs as I wanted to achieve SPG Platinum Elite before the program merges officially on 18 August 2018. I visited the Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur and stayed in one of the newly-renovated Le Meridien Club Rooms!

Hotel Review: Conrad Centennial Singapore (Centennial Suite) - Refurbished Suite with Views of Fountain of Wealth

Ever since the Conrad Centennial Singapore completed a series of refurbishments, I have been back on multiple occasions - I love the location of the property since there are various great restaurants which I like in the vicinity and more importantly, the Hilton Honors program is one that I try to achieve at least Gold each year. In fact, with my recent successes with getting pre-upgraded even as a Gold member, I may look towards obtaining Diamond for the year ahead by switching some stays over from Hyatt to Hilton. I have previously stayed in a Centennial Suite approximately three years ago but this year was the first time that i actually stayed in a recently-refurbished one.

Hotel Review: Six Senses Duxton (Duxton Duplex Suite) - Luxury Hotel with Sustainability Focus

The Six Senses Duxton is the first city property for Six Senses and it is also one of the most highly-anticipated hotels to open in Singapore this year. The Six Senses Duxton has been sustainably-restored by famous British designer, Anouska Hempel and it features a synthesis of Chinese, Malay and European design elements. The Six Senses Maxwell (which is just located a couple of minutes away on foot) is slated to open in October 2018 and guests staying in either property will be able to enjoy all the amenities across both hotels. Check out my review of the Duxton Duplex Suite here!

Hotel Review: Hilton Orlando (Pool View Room) - Short Walk to Orange County Convention Center

I spent two weeks in Florida back in April where I booked myself on a flight from Dubai to New York on Emirates Business Class and then from New York to Tampa on Delta Air Lines First Class. After spending a week at The Westin Tampa Waterside, I drove down to Orlando where I was required to attend a major convention (for work) and stayed at the Hilton Orlando. Since the event was going to be held at the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC), we opted to stay at the Hilton Orlando this time since there are regular buses that will take us there in the morning. Read my review of a Pool View Room here!

Hotel Review: Hyatt Regency Tokyo (Regency Club Room) - Conveniently Located in Nishi-Shinjuku

I have stayed in multiple properties in Tokyo but the Shinjuku area is probably my favourite - the Hilton Tokyo is nice but I have spent over a week there previously so I decided that it was time to try out a different property this time. The Hyatt Regency Tokyo ticked all the right boxes from start to finish and it is now my favourite property in Shinjuku - check out my review of the Regency Club Room here!
