Swissôtel Merchant Court was my choice of weekend staycation recently. The hotel is located within a walking distance from Clark Quay MRT Station and also The Central Mall. The hotel is strategically located between Chinatown and Clark Quay area. You can literally enjoy the happening nightlife activities on both places.
As usual, check-in procedure required at the reception counter. Although hotel payment is made, hotel guests also required to put a certain amount of deposit upon check-in. The amount is based on the days you are going to stay in the hotel. And no worries, the deposit will be refunded upon check out and everything in the hotel room is in place. I guess this is what all hotels do.
Once cleared, I was given the hotel cards and lead to the lift personally by the hotel staff. Such a nice and rare gesture! I finally checked in to Swiss Executive Room, which entitles to complimentary welcome drink in the evening at Executive Lounge and also breakfast in the morning.
The Room-Swiss Executive Room
My Swiss Executive Room for a night and there is welcome chocolates in the room.
More photos of the room.
There is wifi device available in the room for hotel guests to bring it out.
What I enjoyed the most is the balcony where we spent the night admiring the skyline and the lightings from the buildings. We also witnessed the light shows from Marina Bay Sands. It was absolutely amazing!
Hotel guests also can enjoy 24-hour Fitness Centre located next to the swimming pool on level two. I had the chance to enjoy the facilities there during my stay.You can read more about the Fitness Centre here.
And here is the photo of the pool.
I also had an hour session of spa massage with Pürovel Spa and Sport. It was relaxing and I fell asleep half way through the session. You can book for spa treatment from here.
Swiss Executive Lounge
The Swiss Executive Lounge located at Level 11 offers an exclusive space for hotel guest staying in Swiss Executive Rooms or Suites. The lounge offers light refreshments and complimentary drinks and canapés every evening during Happy Hour (6pm – 8pm). Since I am staying in Swiss Executive Room, I get to access to the lounge.
Had light bites and tea before our dinner at Blue Potato Restaurant.
Ellenborough Market Cafe
Apart from dinner buffet, Ellenborough Market Café also caters breakfast for hotel guests. Hotel guests staying in Swiss Executive Room King can have the choice either to dine here or Executive Lounge. But I would say the breakfast buffet selection is more than Executive Lounge. Take your pick from Chinese, Indian or even Western style!
Blue Potato Restaurant
Blue Potato Restaurant located next to the swimming pool, offers western cuisine with a la carte menu. The restaurant is an open grill kitchen with contemporary al-fresco dining setting. We were supposed to enjoy the dinner there but it was raining heavily that night. Thus, we end up having our dinner in the room.
Our night ended with our dinner from Blue Potato in the room. We sat at the balcony enjoying the breeze and the skyline view while sipping our tea. It was a great nice night and we had a good rest. The bed was comfy and we lazed a bit before dragging ourselves up for breakfast.
And to ease your check-out experience, you can opt for Express Check-out. You will find a Express Check-out card along with your hotel cards upon check-in. Fill in your details and room number before dropping it at the Express Check-out box. And tadah! As simple as that! You can say bye bye for the weekend staycation!
