Hotel Review : Intercontinental Singapore – Business King

A step back to the Intercontinental Singapore from the last visit of the enormous Ambassador Suite. This time, the Intercontinental Singapore has completed its renovations, and I will be staying in the Business King room.

Intercontinental Singapore - Business King 1The post-renovation decor of the Intercontinental Singapore is definitely a breath of fresh air. The oriental influence has lessened and contemporary designs have been introduced while the colonial aspects remain the same.

Intercontinental Singapore - Business King 2I was especially impressed with the new Intercontinental Singapore concierge system on the Television which has introduced a new level of convenience for guests. The system allows you to order in-room dining, call for a turn-down service and even stream Spotify and Youtube with just the navigations on the new remote control. 5 stars for this idea. The Television is also built on a swivel arm, this offers optimum viewing angles from the sofa or the in-room dining table. (If one was to be set up)

Intercontinental Singapore - Business King 3As an IHG Ambassador, I received a limited edition TWG tea made especially for the Intercontinental Singapore. The “Intercontinental Singapore Heritage Tea” cannot be bought elsewhere, and you have to be an ambassador to receive it. Definitely, a neat gift, as I love TWG teas, and the tin container serves to be a memento from the brand itself.

Intercontinental Singapore - Business King 4The bed is as comfy as always. I love the new fresh colors of the room which really go well with the carefully planned lighting.

Intercontinental Singapore - Business King 5The wooden work desk and chair are also newly replaced and provide ample space for any work related requirements.

Intercontinental Singapore - Business King 6While the tiles and tubs seem to be refurbished instead of replaced, the efficient and impeccable overhaul and maintenance of the Intercontinental Singapore really shows itself off in a positive light. The standard Agraria amenities are still provided for the Intercontinental Singapore.

Intercontinental Singapore - Business King 7The pantry area is fully stocked with awesome TWG tea, clean glassware, and those little capsules of dairy cream which I love. The best addition to the pantry was a french press, which is a nice touch to brew loose tea leaves like the gift I received from Intercontinental Singapore!

Intercontinental Singapore - Business King 8The quality of in-room dining has gone way up with the introduction of the new Ash & Elm Restaurant that has a grill menu. The steak was done perfectly. The rustic roasted garlic and beef jus paired perfectly with the medium-rare morsels of ribeye.

Intercontinental Singapore - Business King 9The camembert burger was extremely juicy and definitely a must-try if ordering the in-room dining.

Intercontinental Singapore - Business King 10Overall, the experience at the newly renovated Intercontinental Singapore has been outstanding. Although this is not a property I usually recommend to anyone (mainly due to it’s dated rooms), now I do as it has become a force to reckon with after doing so many things right.

The Ambassador enrollment costs $200 USD, and you immediately get the value back with a BOGO Certificate, on top of an Ambassador status at all Intercontinental Hotels (recognised as Platinum level), and a jump to IHG Gold status.
