The Quincy Hotel
Located at the prime Orchard district of Singapore, Quincy provides the urbane business and leisure travellers the utmost privacy and exclusivity. Our non-smoking all-inclusive boutique hotel defines how you can discover a one-of-a-kind hotel stay in Singapore.
As my preference, I like to lodging at least for 1 more hotel for both of business and leisure trips to explore variety hotel experience.
Gladly the Quincy settled my trips smoothly based on the location at the orchard shopping heart and many hotel wonders ~ eg quality complimentary meals, mini bar snacks & drinks, 2 pieces free laundry services, plus soup care guest services...etc.
Basically, the Quincy rooms feature with spacious room size comparing with Japan and Hong Kong city hotels with reasonable price around SGD285 to SGD350 (standard room) as a boutique hotel.
Specially it's the spacious bathroom, most loving that ~ as for my hot-bathed times!! Surprising with the complimentary toiletries ~ my loving high-end skin care brand ~ Molten Brown.
Another, I was much impressed by the charming day & night city view of the Orchard shopping arcade, through the huge room window.
Surely, needless to say , just check out their healthy quality breakfast and refreshing meals. Love their spicy prawn cutlet, Pama ham papaya cocktail, baked salmon filets ~ and with variety of salad.
Besides , another my favorite getaway be the outdoor cooly corner located at the door side of the dinning hall. A few seats there around the greenly woods and little waterfall, what a cooling luxury!
The hotel luxury Skypool at 12/F , opens for 24 hours, next to the gym hall (closed at 10pm) with free bottle of water.
Basically , I only spent a few hours there but much enjoyed the excellent street view and peaceful environment ~ with undisturbed voices.
Overall, the services team are doing their job very well, sunny smile and warm care, they could even address my name all around the hotel , very promising services standard.
That is the reason for my repeating visits at the Quincy as it keeps my heart touching with Singapore!
Highly recommend to those executive groups and family gathering, defiantly you will be surprised by these wonders.
The unfavorable condition of the Quincy hotel are ~
1) though only it takes around 6 minutes walk down to the Paragon shopping mall, it does make me sweating like rain;
2) it's so dark around at night walk, there are less road lights, that hardly recognize the paths back to hotel;
3) the Quincy doesn't offer the free airport services anymore though the group hotels like the Bugis Village Hotel put upgrading their premium offer from the Far East Hospitality Group.
Tips for travelers ~
Explore the Orchard Shopping streets with fun, there have many day & nights attraction ; eg the Somerset MRT around with many bars operating late, at the Cathy tower there , with 24 hours movie theathers, the outdoor cafes around with beautiful night view.
My stay in the hotel was comfortable and relaxing. All-day refreshments (courtesy of Dean & Deluca) at the lobby restaurant meant that I could pop by anytime I get hungry from watching too much cable TV in the comfort of soft, white sheets. There's a small infinity pool beside the gymnasium. Granted, the view all that fabulous but the pool opens 24 hours a day!
The hotel can be quite a chore to access as it is an uphill walk behind Mount Elizabeth Hospital. BUT its location is superb for that price. And since most people should be fitter than me, I think there's not much for me to fuss about.
The lobby is pretty small but the design is stylish, modern and contemporary. Quincy Hotel is a boutique hotel after all and you can’t compare it to the scale of a luxury hotel. The hotel has also generously provided toiletries from Molton Brown – an upmarket bath, body and beauty connoisseur from London.
Let's see...with the Qool weekend package, we have a complimentary red wine and in-room mini bar, late checkout at 3 pm (subject to availability), Art Jam or Cup Cake baing session, free wifi, all day refreshments, evening cocktails, canapes and buffet breakfast for 2. We also went for a outdoor movie screening by the poolside at night and went for a complimentary city tour the next day.
We felt that Quincy Hotel really deserves its title as one of Singapore’s best boutique hotel as the Quincy team was sincere, hospitable and spared no effort to make our stay a delightful one. The Quincy team also surprise my husband with a tiramisu cake and took a Polaroid photo for us to capture the moment. We thoroughly enjoyed the fun-filled activities, whole-day refreshments and buffet spread planned for us.
However, the service was excellent. I needed a travel adapter and was immediately sent one seconds after I called the front desk for help. The room was also spacious. I had five friends over and everybody was able to sit down without feeling cramped.
The bathroom was weird though. A transparent glass separates the shower area, making your naked self visible to the people in the room when you are bathing. However, drawing the curtain would solve this problem. I thought it was a weird unnecessary feature of the room, especially since the room was a double-bed one.
Check-in was very smooth and the guy at the reception attended to me efficiently. This is an all-inclusive hotel so meals at the restaurant and cocktail drinks in the evening were complimentary, but do get the hotel staff to explain how this works because it is slightly complicated with the timings.
Room was very beautiful, especially the toilets which were just immaculate. There is a rain shower and a big bath tub for you to choose from. Molten Brown amenities were provided so that was quite a lovely touch. The mini bar was stocked with many drinks and snacks which were also complimentary.
The pool and gym area was very beautiful as well, which included a steam room and a sauna. It was a pity I couldn't enjoy my pool experience to the fullest as it was pouring heavily and I swam in the freezing water. The area is open 24 hours, so it's a good place to chill out if you want some peace and serenity after midnight.
Overall, it's a very memorable hotel stay in Singapore and as a local, I would definitely be coming back.
Although the rooms are relatively small, the layout does not make the guests feel cramped up nor stuffy.
The swimming pool is the most remarkable amenity of the hotel in my opinion. Situated on the 12th floor, with a clear view of the outskirts of Orchard road, I stayed in the pool for almost an hour just admiring the scenery. Word of warning though, the water in the pool seems to be cold regardless in the day or night. There is also a small see-through patch on the pool floor (pretty scary for someone with a fear of heights).
The location of this hotel is suitable for those who want a quiet getaway yet still want to be accessible to prime locations. Far East Plaza is a 5-minutes walk away (walk through York Hotel & Goodwood Park Hotel).
I would come back here for a staycation again if I have the chance to.
I believed it was awarded a hospitality award not too long ago, and it deserved it. The service there was nothing but excellent. The staff there was helpful without being patronising, and were willing to plan a local excursion for you if requested (I acted as a tourist). Their studio rooms were large enough, with a King sized bed and clean fabrics. It is a hotel catered towards business travellers, and the room shows.
The location of the hotel is fantastic since it is a short walk (max 5 min) to Paragon. Service was extraordinary and deserves a 5 as the service staff explained to us why we did not have the complimentary meals and also provided us a surprise dessert as we were celebrating our anniversary! Very thoughful of the staff to add a card and made our stay more memorable!
A disappointing point is that the room is a little small but I guess it's common for hotel rooms to be smaller in Singapore. Overall a great stay and I highly recommend it for couples. Loved the pool too!
When we saw our room, it was definitely good for us as it had a view of Scotts Road. They had the usual amenities that a room should have. We decided to check out the hotel facilities. They have a gym with new equipment that looked untouched. Beside the gym is the infinity pool and deck chairs for you to chill.
One bad thing about the room was that you cannot adjust the temperature of the air-conditioning and that was quite bad. Other than that, breakfast at the cafe was pretty normal. It is worth a stay if you are looking for a weekend getaway in Singapore.
