Royal Plaza on Scotts in Orchard

Got a whole lot of dough and want to spend it shopping like a lunatic in Orchard Road? That may be another story, but why not stay close enough to the scene. This is one of the most exceptional hotels along Orchard: the Royal Plaza on Scotts. From starting out as a Holiday Inn Hotel to changing into this world class hotel, it deserves all the accolades it has reaped, including the Best Independent Hotel by TTG Travel Awards for 6 consecutive years from 2007 to 2012.

From the Orchard Road MRT, it’s a good five minute walk. I remember, when I was on my business trip to Singapore a couple of years back, I looked forward to going to and fro the hotel, because it’s connected to the Wheelock Place and Ion Orchard. I can easily buy anything from the place and leave it in the hotel. Plus, the hotel is beside Starbucks and McDonalds. This makes the hotel even more exceptional - talk about being too engrossed with fraps and fries.

The hotel’s exterior doesn’t easily give it the hotel trademark. But it looks urbane, that’s for sure. Inside is a good story. Tastefully lit with fine art and a classy stair case, the Royal Plaza on Scotts isn’t shy to show its extravagance. It’s a rare thing to find a room as good as this one: awesome bathtub with a convenient view of the TV screen, bed sheets that will make you sleep for eternity, endless supply of tiger beers, and a complete load of English TV channels. Plus, gym and pool. Plus, excellent customer service. Plus, everything else… imagination tells me, this is actually how it might be living like royalty here in Singapore.

This sure is still budget-friendly, on a relative perspective that is. The cost a person can spend here is rather reasonable considering the amount of outstanding staycation one can take away from here. The Carrousel buffet alone, which is my greatest favorite among the many things of this place, makes the whole eating at a top hotel a fantastic experience.
