Grand Mercure Roxy Square
An Accorhotel's brand hotel, the 4 star Grand Mercure Roxy Square was my home for one of my weekend stays recently. Having reviewed the Sofitel SO Singapore and Novotel Singapore Clarke Quay last year, I've thought, why not try out this property next?
Located in the heritage area of Katong, near the bustling town of Marine Parade with views of the Singapore Straits and a short drive away to the East Coast Parkway, not forgetting their regular airport shuttles. It is understandable why this property is popular amongst tourists and beautiful & handsome airline crews.
I redeemed 6000 Accorhotel points which is equivalent to Euro 120 discount off my room rate and booked a King Executive Room.
After check-in, I went to the pool bar to enjoy a glass of beer with my complimentary drinks voucher whilst pondering what I should have for lunch.
The 50sqm Junior Suite, it looked larger though, comes with a large living area with a dining table for 2. It has a small kitchenette with microwave and kitchen sink which is great for travellers.
It is designed like a boutique apartment which looks simplistic and cosy. The bedroom has an ensuite bathroom which has a deep soaking tub and a spacious rainfall shower area. As usual, the toiletries were of in house brand that was not too bad.
The only downside of my stay was that I was out most of the time, venturing the katong eateries around the area and did not spend as much time as I hope in the suite nor the executive lounge. What I did have was actually some dimsum from the restaurant, I opt for Take-away as I prefer to dine in my room. The dimsum was pretty decent!
Overall, I felt that I could do more and explore more of the hotel, which I would definitely do so in my next visit to the property, which I hope would be sometime soon in view of my heavy travel schedule. Not my first visit and neither would be my last
