Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EBear Enjoyable and comfortable
Location very good, close to Orchard Road with its shops and restaurants. The hotel is about a five minute walk from Somerset MRT and the Hop on / Hop Off bus runs close by.
Hotel check in very efficient. the room comfortable and quiet despite being close to the expressway. The bed, in particular, was comfortable. We didn't eat in the hotel.

Outstanding service all round. At one stage, though, the internet server crashed - and there was no connection for a few hours. The technical team remedied it first thing in the morning. Then, later in the day, the guest services unit led by Miss Nurliyana delivered a written explanation, a fruit platter, and a gift flash drive to compensate us for the (very minor) interruption. Real class.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Andrew1965 Poor customer service / Interrnet information
Considering the culture of win/win in Singapore, I was extremely embarrassed by a member of management. No where in the hotel or on the website is there reference to access to the internet only being accessible in a public area (downstairs lobby bar) through the purchase of a drink.
Having been told by a member of staff (on the 1st night) that access was provided by a code accessible from the lobby bar. On this occasion I was provided a code without question. However, on the 2nd night , with laptop in hand and whilst meeting a business colleague, I was told that I could not access the internet without a purchase.
Having lived in Singapore for three years, this loss of face was quite shocking. There was no compromise, no suggestion of normal practice, but just a categorical refusal.
I was acutely embarrassed and will not be staying at the Holiday Inn in Singapore ever again. I believe the lack of information and signage is extremely poor and the attitude of management less that satisfactory.
I will be following this up with a letter of complaint and advise future travellers to be aware of this lack of clarity and practice.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by lisaa Comfortable bed but poor service
I was renting 2 rooms and wanted to add an extra night. But they wouldn't let me add the extra room even though the hotel wasn't fully booked. She said I could do it online. But then internet was free in the lobby liked it said , except that you had to purchase a drink. It was extremely complicated and not resolved to my satisfaction.
The room was clean and the location was great. But no flexibility was possible and internet was $32 a day.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Xavier76 Old Hotel but Nice room and Nice Lobby
Front desk staff is not helpful nor friendly . No birthday wish was make event though already indicate that I am celebrating my partner birthday for the stay, Asking for king size bed no alternative must take room with no view and she did not help to look at other option at all, Hotels operator dont have product knowledge even a simple question also must wait 5 minutes for the answer.
This is old hotels but everything look good and new , rooms are very modern , clean and fresh . Housekeeping service is excellent , Lobby is beautifully and quiet . Locations is superb convenience .
I given 3 star because the customer service are poor. basically they are robotic and no personal interactions with guest. other wise the hotels deserve 5 star .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by vvkh Great location, good room, great stay
We were at Holiday Inn, Orchard City Centre, Singapore from 17th to 21th November 2012 and had a great stay even though our kid was sick. The double double bed room was very good and comfortable. Hotel was very clean and neat. The location is everything...superb, near all the great shopping centres of orchard road. Cuppage road restaurants just in front of Hotel. Everything you need is near the hotel. Walking distance to all shopping centres, supermarkets and restaurants. Will definitely go there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by helen1201 Wonderful Conveniently Located Hotel
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Orchard City Center Singapore in Nov. 2012. The room was spotless and the bathrooms was exceptionally clean. Everything that ws expected of a Holiday Inn worldwide could be found here. I would highly recommend this hotel being it was so conveniently located. The reception staff was very welcoming and made our stay a comfortable one. The only drawback was no free internet access in the rooms. I think that would be a plus.to offer free wi-fi to Priorty Club members. We did get a voucher for free drinks which is very nice.

Housekeeping staff did an excellent job to make sure room was cleaned promptly and thoroughly. Also, doormen were always helpful and smiling when I would leave in the morning and return in the evening. Of course you can't leave out the front desk, they were all very helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by guakefu My first choice when being in Singapore
The hotel is perfectly located near Orchard Road. The staff is very friendly and efficient. Rooms are clean, spacious and modernly equipped. I personally like the breakfast buffet and the roof-top pool area with gym. Taking a swim at night (until 11 h) gives a perfect "shutdown of your system" after a business day in Singapore... My first choice in Singapore for the last 8 years !!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Amy50 Quest services were wonderful
Unfortunately we had a terrible room located at the end of a hallway that was very noisy. If we had been staying any longer I would have requested a different room, but knew we were moving to the Inter Continental in the center of the city.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by azlan Finally found the gem we were looking for
After all those countless trips to singapore for that short weekend getaway, that last minute special occasions or just that 1 day fast & fury shopping spree right across the causeway, my wife & I had finally found that ideal place for us. Location of the hotel was one, but what was exceptional was the staff. The receptionist who attended to us was courteous & efficent. Her manners were impeccable & checking- inn was seamless. We must convey our heartfelt compliments to Ms Lyya the "Guest Experience Champion". Your thoughtful gesture had made our stay there even more memorable. Even the kind coursiege who attended to the storage our luggage after checking-out was definitely a gentleman. The holiday inn orchard city centre is defitely the one for us and if you keep it up , you may have won yourselves a loyal customer for many-many years to come.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SamC 2 issues
In general the hotel and the staff are very good. I have 2 specific issues.
1. The gentleman in your staff Shaun in the club lounge is poorly trained and is not fit to be employed there - I had several problems in my dealings with him and gave my feedback to the duty manager on the 16th evening at 11 p.m.
2. My laundry was not returned on the 16th. No one made an effort to contact me. I had to call the hotel 4 times and each time put on hold by Cecilia for over 5 minutes and finally told, next time you visit us, we will give it back to you. in my opinion that is poor service, not calling me back and not offering to send it to me

We stayed in the executive rooms, the rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble for them. We used the executive lounge which was a great place to relax, the staff there were very good and the food was lovely.
Breakfast was great, there was such a wide variety of food and drinks to choose from, also the staff here were excellent, very attentive, even when the restaurant was full and even the restaurant manager was helping. A big thank you to the staff

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paul61 Great stay
From check in to check out this was a wonderful experience. All the staff were extremely friendly & helpful & the restaurant manager not only remembered our names at breakfast each morning he also knew our coffee preferences, impressive seeing how busy it was.
The location was excellent for Orchard Road shopping, not that we had time for any, and also for the hop on hop off bus service.
Don't know what the other Holiday Inn properties are like in Singapore but they would be very hard pushed to beat this one & we have no hesitancy in strongly recommending it. The upgrade to the executive room with lounge access was also worth the money.
The roof top pool was also much better than we expected, great to relax by after endless sightseeing.

We liked the Bed and the choice of pillows given. What we did not like was rates of items in the Mini-Bar. Nowadays most hotels throw in free use of Mini Bar, whereas over here, it was overpriced.

Great position for shopping, also well positioned to reach all attractions either by MRT or Taxi ($10 SD) was the most I paid with the exception of trip back to Airport.
Hotel is lively, clean and tidy with excellent staff. Upgrading to Executive is well worth it as rooms are very good and the Executive Lounge is a great facility - especially at Happy Hour.
I would definitely stay there again

We had gone for a vacation and stayed @ Holiday Inn. The best part was we could get early Check Inn. Secondly, the location is awesome.. Very close to MRT. Easy Commute by MRT or Taxi or Bus. Main Street location. Stay was relaxing. The only point missing was no Free WIFI where ever other hotel of Holiday Inn provides this facility. Service was a little slow compared to other Holiday Inn hotels we have stayed in.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill2004 Great room - great location
Holiday Inn Orchard is a great location for shopping, and being in the central business district, with Orchard Road being only 100 metres away. Plenty of restaurants nearby for a wide selection of shoices, all at reasonable prices.
The hotel itseif is excellent - rooms are large and well equipped with everything to make an enjoyable stay. Breakfast selection is tops!
The only complaint is the very high prices for drinks at the bar, although it shouldn't be a real draw back because there are lots of cheaper drinking places within a stones throw of Holiday Inn.

As Ambassador Platinum member, usually a plate of fruit is given during check-in, also, a night turn-down service with a piece chocolate is given too..but not this time during my stay from 25-28 October 2012. So disappointing experience.

This hotel is in an excellent location for central Singapore with many attractions within a short walking distance. Also very convenient for CBD with just a short taxi ride. The hotel has one of the best club room breakfasts I have had. Hotel staff are incredibly efficient seeming to be label to predict my needs. This was my 3rd stay in this hotel which offers the best value for money in Singapore with al the facilities I needed to make my trip a success
