Read on and find out how you can stand a chance to win a 3D2N stay at InterContinental Singapore!
Kudos to designer Warren Foster Brown of FBEYE International for the perfect blending of contemporary design with traditional furniture with modern technology. Bose wave music system, 46-inch LED TV, docking station to an array of media connections are just some of the modern luxury you can find during your stay.
Personalised in-room check-in and a welcome tea service are just some of the many heart-warming Peranakan touches provided to guests to kick-start your stay. Pleasant surprises are aplenty when it comes to InterContinental Singapore's hospitality (think flowers and turndown services).
Pillow menu is also available to go along with their Sealy Posturepedic mattress, and we would recommend their eco-friendly range, in conjunction with the hotel's environmental efforts with LED lightings and energy-saving fluorescent tubes.
Club InterContinental Lounge
Guests staying in the shophouse wing of the hotel have complimentary access to the Club InterContinental lounge, a private enclave for both leisure and business travellers. Exclusively for club guests, you may enjoy your daily breakfast here instead of their lobby restaurant Olive Tree. Afternoon tea and evening cocktails are also available throughout the day.
Other personal touches include free pressing of three pieces of clothing upon arrival, concierge, professional secretarial services and private check-in and check-out.
