How much did it cost?

We redeemed 50,000 Hilton Honors points for one night at the Conrad Singapore. We earned these points from sign up bonuses (Amex Hilton and Amex Hilton Surpass)* and QL’s organic work stays.

How much would it have cost if we had paid cash?

It would have cost ~$490 for one night.

We were in Singapore for a total of 17 hours. I debated between redeeming 20,000 SPG points for a night at the St. Regis or paying cash for the Transit Hotel in Terminal 1 at Changi (good writeup on it here). I was leaning toward the latter, unfortunately logistics didn’t work for us to stay there, so we redeemed 50,000 Honors points to stay at the Conrad Singapore.  With QL’s work stays and multiple credit card products, Hilton points are easier to accumulate than SPG points.



Everything about Changi was smooth, from deplaning, getting our luggage, to clearing customs. It felt like we were in and out of that beautiful airport in a matter of minutes. We followed the taxi signs to the exit and quickly found a nicely air conditioned taxi. It was really humid so the A/C was refreshing. After a ~$14 ride, we were dropped off at the hotel.

The Conrad is well located, near the Marina Bay Sands. We checked into a King Room, which was pretty standard, with a view of the city. On the bed was a golden Conrad bear to add to our growing collection.

We took a stroll down to the pool area to check out the gym and the spa. Unfortunately there was no spa area, but the hotel is planning to build one in the upcoming renovation. The gym was pretty nice.

On the way back up to the room, we stopped by the executive lounge for a drink and a snack.

QL took a short nap before we went to the lounge for a pre-dinner drink. We tried some of the food even though we were meeting Brian, my friend from bschool, for dinner shortly after.

Brian came to meet us at the hotel and we took a cab to try a couple of the hawker courts. At Lau Pa Sat, I tried the Lakhsa.

We then went a few blocks away to Chinatown and had some Chicken and Rice and a couple beers.  QL was excited to finally get some fresh sugar cane juice.

Beers were surprisingly expensive. I think it was ~$10 for a 600ml Tiger. We stayed for a couple hours then called it an early night as we had a 8:15a flight the next morning to Da Nang via Siem Riep.

Upon returning to the room, we were surprised to find a bottle of wine and some chocolate bark the hotel gifted us for the honeymoon.

It seemed like we had just closed our eyes before we had to get up for breakfast, which was served downstairs in the restaurant. We wanted to spend a few minutes in the SilverKris Lounge so only had about 30 minutes to eat breakfast.

The cab to the airport took about twenty minutes. At Changi, check in was again a breeze. We followed the signs for the SilverKris Lounge, located on the second floor. The lounge was very large, but I was glad we ate at the hotel because the food looked less appetizing.

There were also several seating areas, and we were surprised how busy it was at that hour in the morning.

We had time for a coffee and a newspaper before we had to run to board our SilkAir flight to Da Nang.
