Question: We are looking to book a 2 night accommodation, checking in 26th July and checking out 28th July. We are a party of three, 2 adults and our 6 year old daughter. We are looking to book a 5 star hotel either in the Marina District or Orchard Road District. Can you please advise on the best hotels to visit with our 6 year old daughter? It is difficult to determine from a web site which rooms are suitable for an additional bed for a child.
Answer: Overall, when traveling with kids you want to look for either a Junior Suite with a separate living area, a Suite with a separate living area, or a room with 2 double or 2 queen beds. Two great options are the Mandarin Oriental Singapore and the Four Seasons Singapore. The Mandarin Oriental is located in the heart of Marina Bay, and it has an Ocean Grand Room with 1 king or 2 twin beds which has a separate sitting area. The Four Seasons Singapore is steps from Orchard Road, and it has a few room options that can accommodate 3 people. It has a Deluxe Room with a king size bed or 2 twin beds, which start from 420 SGD per night, its Premier Corner Room with a king or 2 twin beds starting from 500 SGD per night, or its Boulevard Room with 1 king or 2 twin beds which has a separate sitting area and starts from 450 SGD per night.

There's a very interesting split in the travel industry between business and leisure travelers. And if you're one of the business types, you know well that you're on the road constantly and the things that matter to you, travel convenience, efficiency, and connectivity, are almost the opposite of what a leisure traveler might want. If the word 'secluded' ever appeared in a hotel description, you'd cross it off the list immediately. So I'm here to use some adjectives you might appreciate hearing in describing some of the world's best business hotels. Today? Singapore.
In real estate, it's all about three things: location, location, location. For the business traveler, it's much the same, and the good folks at Fairmont kept that in mind with the Fairmont Singapore. The hotel is located at the crossroads of Singapore's major business, cultural, and shopping districts. A staggering 70,000 square feet of meeting space means that you can host an event of just about any size in the hotel's wonderfully furnished top-of-the-line meeting rooms. The main ballroom itself can host up to 3200 people, and there's another auxiliary room that can hold up to 1,000. After you're done with business, relax and unwind, or treat your guests, at the Willow Stream Spa, one of the largest in the city, ensuring that you can find exactly what you're looking for. And with 769 rooms and suites, all of the executives can stay on-site; there's no having to worry about booking additional rooms and coordinating transportation to other hotels. The Fairmont Singapore is a business center in the center of business for Southeast Asia.
