Youtube video review: Westin Club Room (The Westin Singapore) | Hotel Review
The Westin Singapore is a stylish and contemporary hotel situated on the upper floors of Asia Square Tower 2. The lobby sits on floor 32 and guest rooms extend all the way up to floor 46. This hotel is in the Marina Bay Financial district and is three minutes away from Downtown MRT station.
The common areas and guest rooms of this hotel have terrific views of either the city or port and overlook the South China Sea. We were assigned the Westin Club Room which is a preferred room because of its high floor and corner rooms with 90 degrees floor to ceiling glass windows to maximise the views. The check in process was seamless and we were on our way to our room.

Our room was located on floor 45, which was the second highest floor and was right at the corner. The corner rooms are the very much preferred rooms as mentioned earlier. Check out our immersive 360-degree room tour of this room below.

The entrance to the room was rather odd, with an L-shaped walkway which was narrow. This space was pretty much not usable.

Upon passing the bend, on one side there was a small table and beside it, a wardrobe. Directly opposite was the bathroom.

The wardrobe had all the bedroom amenities such as the iron, ironing board, bedroom slippers, in-room safe, laundry bags and hangers for your clothes.

The marble bathroom was a beautiful space with floor to ceiling glass windows overlooking the city although it may not be very spacious. There was just one sink which was oddly shaped. Bathroom amenities were provided by their in-house spa, Heavenly Spa. Towels could be found below the sink, on a wooden shelf. The mirror had back illumination, which gave it a nice glow. The highlight of the bathroom would probably be the free-standing bath tub overlooking the city. There was also a separate standing shower space.

Going past the bathroom and the wardrobe area was a large rectangular room which was the main bedroom. The bedroom was nicely carpeted which was in contrast to the other parts of the room which had marble tiles. The room was noticeably well lit due to the large floor to ceiling windows which gave the room plenty of natural sunlight.

The largely popular Heavenly Bed by Westin sat in the middle of the room with two bedside tables and a seating area at the front. Guests can control the lightings in the room with switches conveniently located on either side of the bed. There are also charging points here to facilitate charging of your electronic devices.

Perpendicular to the bed was a flat screen television which we felt was at an odd angle to the bed and sofa. We dragged the two-seater sofa across the room so that we could get a good angle to enjoy our shows. Nonetheless, there were accessible ports to connect our laptop and gaming console to the television.

Below the television was the minibar area, equipped with a Nespresso machine and capsules, teabags by TWG and 3-in-1 coffee sachets. The mini fridge in the cabinet below was empty and so we used it to chill our own beverages. Inside the drawers, guests will be able to find cups, glasses and kettle for their in-room usage.

We were given two packets of cookies which we found to be really good and a printed card addressed to us thanking us for our loyalty.

For those with work to do, a work desk is placed right by one of the window, thus giving guests a great view while doing their work. A telephone, lamp and charging ports can be found here too.

At the corner of the room, a two seater sofa was placed and a low round coffee table could be found in front of it. As mentioned earlier, the sofa was placed at a very odd angle to the television and so we dragged it across the room.

The highlight of this room would probably be the sweeping 90-degree views of the port and city provided by floor to ceiling glass windows. The windows were relatively clean too.

As the club lounge was closed during our stay, we were given $100 dining credits to utilise. As our room package also comes with $100 dining credits, we had $200 to spend and truthfully, it was very difficult as the food items in the hotel restaurants were priced reasonably.
Cook & Brew
Our dinner at Cook and Brew was exceptional. Some items on the menu were of Thai x Western fusion which we found to be really interesting. We had the pad Thai sweet potato fries, black mussels cooked in Thai green curry, Sriracha wings and calamari for starters. For our mains, we had their beef pot roast and fish and chips. We strongly recommend having your dinner here if you're staying at this hotel and request for a window seat for the best experience. One downside was that the service was rather slow.

As we still had credits to spend, we chose to utilise them by ordering in-room dining. We opted for a vegetarian pizza and Impossible burger for the mains and tried each of their dessert items; apple crumble, brownie and burnt cheesecake. The portion was large and we felt it was good value for money at the prices listed.
Breakfast was held at Seasonal tastes, at the lobby level of the hotel. There were three different time slots to choose from and we chose the latest one which was between 11.30am and 1.30pm. While there was a great selection of food to choose from, we found the food to be mediocre. One upside was that the restaurant overlooked the South China Sea which was beautiful.

Concluding remarks: Overall, this was one of our most pleasant stay. With great food options within the hotel and a beautifully appointed corner room, we didn't have too many complains. If you appreciate panoramic views from your hotel room, this hotel will be a great choice for you.
