Recently, we went for a staycation at Hotel Jen Orchardgateway. Located directly above Orchardgateway, we felt so much like a tourist in our own city. The amazing rooftop pool with breath-taking views of the Singapore skyline is what we loved most about this hotel. And I can’t wait to show you around.
If you’re not familiar with Hotel Jen, let me share with you a brief introduction. In 2014, the Shangri-la Group revamped their mid-range hotels in the best locations across Asia Pacific to Hotel Jen that aims to capture a younger and more travel-savvy market as compared to their flagship Shangri-la brand.
Hotel Jen delivers quality and comfort, convenience and value, but what makes it special is the way it makes people feel excited and happy, respected and cared for, and relaxed throughout their stay. So, I’ll be sharing with you “That Jen Feeling” really soon.
Hotel Jen Orchardgateway is the third Hotel Jen that we’ve stayed, and the special thing about it – it was the first property that was purposely built under the new branding. Opened in Sep 2014, the hotel is brand new and interconnected with three shopping malls that provides a seamless and weather-proof shopping experience, as well as direct access to Somerset MRT station.
Hotel Jen Orchardgateway’s lobby is located above ground on the 10th floor, which is quite unique. We stayed in a Club Deluxe Room located on the 13th floor. The room is very spacious with a super comfy king-sized bed, sofa with pull-out bed, 40-inch Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) system, executive writing desk, a fruit cup in the fridge, and all the usual things like steam iron, safe, coffee station, WIFI, etc.
Edison jumped with excitement at the sight of the bathroom. It’s very spacious and have a bath-tub too.
He was also thrilled to see this.
A little gesture goes a long way!
Now, let’s check out the club lounge. Another perks of staying in the Club Deluxe Room is the complimentary access to Club Lounge on the 19th floor. On top of the breath-taking panoramic city view, we get exclusive check-in and check-out, complimentary drinks and snacks all day long, evening cocktail, and other privileges.
I love the café-like setting with comfy armchairs and glorious sunshine from the large windows. Edison said he could easily snooze here because it was just too comfy.
After filling our tummies with light snacks, we went for a swim at the amazing rooftop pool with panoramic views of the Singapore skyline. I love the poolside cabana. There is also a mini bar here, so you can order your favourite drinks and some ice cold beer. Have I mentioned about the indulgent massage by the pool that you can book during the day?
