Marriott Hotel: Staycation Review

Thanks to influr.com and Marriott Hotel Singapore, I am currently on a weekend staycation at Marriott! 😀 Deluxe Room rates are at about S$390++ per night and I’m not surprised. The location is fabulous – right smack in the heart of the Orchard shopping belt. Now I’m torn between staying indoors and checking out the gym, pool and buffets, versus heading out and hitting the stores. And I’ll show you why…

My room on level 24! 😀

I love it when I am given more pillows than I’ll ever need. Hahaha! Good for pillow fights, maybe? 😀

And you can imagine where I am blogging right now…

The bowl of snacks is definitely a distraction. Thankfully, the prices are steep so I am not moved.

Here’s the view from level 24. The cars look like little plastic models and I feel like a voyeur peeping into people’s homes. 😀

My eyes keep landing on the bowl of snacks. Gah. Strategic placement right across the workdesk and in front of the TV. 😛 Those KitKats are definitely tempting but it’s 245 calories per bar and cost S$5.50 each (twice the price you’ll pay outside)!!!

The mini bar prices – if you’re curious:

Lots of drinks, but I’m not about to touch any of them 😀

The bathroom is a let-down. No bathtub! There’s a rainshower. And a vanity desk but… no bathtub. *Also, there’s just one toothbrush in the bathroom. Shampoo and bath foam come in really small bottles too – might be insufficient if you shower more often due to the hot weather.

Housekeeping staff came by around 6pm to give out Marriott horse plushies and top up anything we might need – from toilet paper to additional toothbrushes or mineral water bottles. 😀

I have hit the gym though, after checking in at 2pm. Review coming up next. 🙂
