Marina Bay Sands Hotel

Marina Bay Sands (MBS) is the latest iconic building in Singapore that was opened only two years ago in 2010. When we arrived at the hotel, the check in counters were full of waiting people. Finally, when it's our turn at the counter, we were told that the rooms are not ready and can only check in at 5pm. To appease our disappointment (especially after a long wait in the queue), we were given the card access to the SkyPark. Still, I am not happy that we cannot have our room on time. It is such a waste of time having to queue twice for check in. The only "compensation" we got was a late check out at 2pm the next day.

I felt that the orientation of the bed is kind of odd. The bed is facing the full-length glass window, instead of the television. Wouldn't most people prefer to curl up in bed and enjoy a TV show, rather than watch the static city lights all night?

The bathroom is huge.

The view from our room wasn't fantastic because we were on the lower floors, so what we see mostly was MBS's own convention centre and shoppes.

The SkyPark on the 57th floor is a must-go spot while you are a guest at the hotel. The observatory deck is accessible to public at a price of SGD 20 per adult. Gardens by the Bay (as featured in the photo above) can be seen from one side of the observatory deck and other parts of Singapore can be viewed from the other sides of the deck. The infinity edge swimming pool is also at the SkyPark, but off limits for the public. The pool is so popular that it's always crowded, even at night. Most people just soak in the water and take a lot of photos with the city view as the background.
