The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore
The stylish choice for business travelers who also appreciate art and other aesthetic pleasures.
Strategically located alongside Singapore’s Suntec City convention center, across from the cultural life at the Esplanade and a five-minute drive to the entertainments of Marina Bay, the refined luxuries of this 32-story hotel begin to reveal themselves as soon as you step into the lobby. In this space, the first batch of the owner's priceless collection of 4,200 pieces of modern art hang, including a massive glass installation by American artist Dale Chihuly. If your work schedule permits, do take the self-guided podcast tour of this museum-quality collection of Chinese and Western pieces. Upstairs, the 608 bigger-than-average über-plush guest rooms may be best known for their bathrooms' octagonal windows offering exceptional views from the deep-soak bathtubs. Business travelers will also appreciate high-speed Internet access and two-line speaker phones with multilingual voicemail, and Club Suites add fax machines for enhanced connectivity. The house Chinese restaurant, Summer Pavilion, is the one to pick if you are on a corporate expense account and hope to impress that all-important business partner. And if your schedule leaves you stranded in Singapore over the weekend, you’ll find plenty of culinary distractions at the extravagant weekend brunch in the lobby level Greenhouse.
