Marina Bay Sands Hotel
Starting rates from around $650 a night for a room and over a thousand for a suite it is one of the more expensive Hotels in Singapore
Unique Quality: Suspect you cant run out of Unique Qualities for this hotel.
20 dining options in the hotel
Not only does it have a boat shaped design across the three towers but it is basically a garden with a massive open air infinity swimming pool three times the length of an Olympic pool and 57 stories up!.
The towers themselves are based on stacks of playing cards
Inside shoppers can ride along an indoor canal in Sampan boats styled on traditional Chinese vessels from the 17th century.
The building was due to open in 2009, but due problems caused by the financial crisis this six billion Dollar plus complex wasn't opened until June 2010
Directions: 10 Bayfront Avenue Singapore 018956
5 Star Hotel with rude & unfriendly Staff
I have been to many 5 star hotels around the world but never had as terrible service as I have experienced with MBS.
MBS group reservation team (on the phone) completely ignored special guest requests & extremely rude!!!
Either MBS has poor management or the staff don't have any ideas about how it is to be part of hospitality business in the first place!!!
The breakfast service with food buffet are not good either, the restaurant is very crowded, the tables are messy with dirty plates, foods are not good quality...
The hotel is too huge to have personal service... more like a factory or zoo. Guests are treated like chickens not as kings. Long queues to check in & check out. Reception areas are overcrowded. There is no lobby, no place to seat.
If you expect a real 5star hotel with excellent service, choose other hotels... they are lots of much better hotels in Singapore which costs the same or lower, worth far better than MBS!!!
The only thing which is attractive for tourists is the infinity pool... but even that is overcrowded!
My recommendation is only to come & visit, enjoy the views at the Skypark but don't stay there. It's nothing special other than that.
Totally NOT recommending this 'so called' hotel & will NEVER come back!!!
Unique Quality: New building
New and nice
Stayed in 2 types of rooms.
One is the deluxe room. The room is okay; space is just right. Since it is a fairly new hotel then it does contain basic and new equipment. Stayed in the lower floors (6th) so not very much of a view.
One is the premier room. I'd say premier, you'd definitely feel the difference vs the deluxe room, this is good for bringing in other people to stay and even the toilet has bath tub which is really nice
Unique Quality: great skypark, near marina bay mall and casino, etc.
what else but pleasant, why paying for a standard room for $ 550 a night in US Dollars will cost you an arm and a leg but is definitely worth every penny! just stayed one night in this ultra-luxe 7 star hotel and the rest in Budget Oxford hotel in Bras Basah area. There are only 2 seven star hotels in the world and the other is the Burj Al Arab in Dubai. Check in time is 3:00 pm and chek out is 11:00 am. Marina Bay Sands had it's Grand Opening on Feb. 17, 2011 and is one of the most anticipated around the world. This hotel has a distinction of having an aircraft carrier like sky park at the top which makes it soooo unique!
Unique Quality: they serve a better singapore sling than the original in raffles hotel and more expensive at $ 32 than the $ 25 in raffles hotel. the hotel has 2500 rooms and various suites and again the cheapest standard room without a view of the marina bayfront (the view is on the South China Sea Side) will cost you 550 US dollars. The infinity pool at the 52scnd floor is simply the best at the Ku De Ta Lounge in the Sky Park was voted one of the ten most liked spots in the world by the new york times.
