Crowne Plaza Changi Airport
The Crowne Plaza Changi Airport has won many awards and accolades, with its latest being awarded one of the most luxurious Airport Hotels by CNN Business Traveler. The hotel was one of my first reviews on JLTravelLounge, having reviewed the Club King Room in late 2014.
Upon check-in, I was given a sweet upgrade to its Club King Suite with views both the Control Tower and surrounding runway.
The spacious suite had a guest bathroom, open concept work station with full view of the runway and living area. I love the woody interior decor of the suite, it felt homely where one would just want to laze around with a pot of tea.
The bedroom has a sliding door which is cleverly concealed among the wall, which could be drawn for an additional privacy. The bedroom features an ensuite bathroom with 2 vanity area (1 for him and 1 for her), an deep soaking tub, luxurious standing rainfall shower. The only drawback of the bathroom was the lack of view as the windows has been frosted for additional privacy.
Staying at the Suites also grants me exclusive access to the private Club Lounge located just beside the pool. The Club Lounge offers complimentary all day beverages, continental breakfast, afternoon tea and also select choice of evening canapes and free flow evening cocktails.
I am slightly disappointed with the lack of quality for the hot canape choices, the desserts and service was however impeccable. Special mention to Huiling who surprised me with a couple of "in-club cocktails" that tasted pretty good!
Next morning, I headed towards the main restaurant Azure for breakfast. The breakfast spread was pretty good, close to an international spread. There is even a dedicated breakfast for IHG Elite members, which is a new initiative which I have not encountered at any of my IHG hotel stays so far.
I did not take any photos for the breakfast spread as the breakfast area was pretty busy. I headed towards the club lounge for some fresh fruits and a glass of warm lemon honey to nourish my sore throat.
I return to my room and was glad to find my complimentary birthday cake, their signature cheesecake. The cheesecake was pretty good, smooth and creamy and cheesy, just a tad little too sweet to my liking.
Overall, a great stay as always at the Crowne Plaza Changi Airport, looking forward to another return stay in the near future!
