Crowne Plaza Changi Airport

Crowne Plaza Changi Airport is the first hotel situated in the Changi Airport region. It is located in Terminal 3 and is directly connected to the other 2 terminals via the airport monorail system. 

Crowne Plaza Changi Airport is managed by Intercontinental Hotel Group and is opened in May 2008 with 320 guest rooms and 27 suites.

I booked a Deluxe Room at $266++ for its IHG Members Bonus Points Package.

I arrived 1100hrs at the hotel had a dimsum lunch in the hotel's Imperial Treasure restaurant.

Prior to my stay i wrote in to request for a room on the top floor with runway views. In recognition of my IHG Platinum Elite member status, I was upgraded my room to a Premier Room on the 7th floor with views of the runway. I was also extended executive lounge access for my stay which includes breakfast, branded bath amenities and evening cocktail & canapes at the executive lounge.

The bathroom came with Crowne Plaza branded bath amenities with usual shower cap/tooth brush/comb and grooming amenities. After a long day at work, taking a soak in the bath with a hot rainfall shower is a joy to behold.


I had an unobstructed view of the runway and manage to catch an Singapore Airlines A380 Taxi into the runway. Surprisingly, The windows were sound proof and we could only catch faint sounds of the airplanes taking off/landing at the tarmac.

Beside the impressive room views, we were granted access to the club lounge which offered all day beverages, evening cocktails and canapés at the third floor.

After the evening cocktail, we were quite full and took a relaxing walk to the adjacent terminal 3. We returned to the lobby bar to enjoy our complimentary drinks (Wine, Juices or soft drinks) as part of the IHG Platinum welcome drinks voucher.

After our drinks we proceed to the hotel pool (which is still accessible at 2300hrs) to relax with the windy winds at the comfortable sunbeds.

Next morning, we had a choice of either breakfast at the executive lounge or Azur, as it was quite busy at the main restaurant, we decided to have our breakfast at the lounge. It was continental spread with the usual scrambled eggs, ham, sausages, asian spread such as fried noodles, bread and cereals.

We were granted a 4pm late check out and made full use of it with a dip in the hotel pool before making our way home.
