[Hotel Review] Hotel Jen Orchard Gateway

 

[My first review available here]

Decided on a last minute staycation and depsite feeling like the crowd will be madness in Orchard on a weekend, I decided to go ahead anyway. Anything for a chillax weekend where I can act like a potato for 2 whole days. Even if its a property I’ve already been to. But different room this time. Hehe.

Price – 3,500 Golden Circle points for a Club room seemed to be a good deal if you throw in all the perks of the Lounge access (free breakfast, caffine shots all day, free dinner, free flow alcohol for 2days!!). Room reservations was also kind enough to grant me an upgrade to Club Deluxe despite the fact that it was a ‘free’ stay.

Check In – done at front desk effortlessly and was given a slip of paper showing club lounge benefits. Boo to not being checked in at the lounge 😦

Room – Club Deluxe was spacious at 32SqM and very clean and well equipped. It was missing the day bed so heavily featured on the official pictures though – a shame. Bathroom was quite big and decked out in luxurious earthy tones. But space and cleanliness were definitely non-issues. Bigger than usual bathroom was a nice thing to have too!

Club Lounge –  My evening cocktail experience this time was much better than my previous stay. More food and beverage (including alcohol) variety made it a lot easier to treat this as a light dinner and just sit and admire the view from the 19th floor for 2 whole hours. Service was friendly and mostly efficient as well. Most of the club lounge guests huddled in one section watching the live broadcast of Prince Harry while nursing food and drinks. Very relaxed!

Check out – easy @ front desk and nothing needed to be paid.

Still an unbeatable location for the price and would recommend for tourists and staycationers alike!

[Hotel Review] Hotel Jen Tanglin

Picked this property for a 4D3N staycation to avoid the blazing sun, but mostly because Hotel Jens are the only properties which allow chilldren in their Club Lounge. Had tried Hotel Jen Gateway last year so decided to try this this time.

(some pics are from my first visit as pretty much nothing has changed)

This Jan 2016 (sorry slow review I know) is my second visit to the property – the first was when it was still a Traders back in 2014. I was looking for a chillax getaway with mum just for 2D1N and we didnt want a city-ish hotel so I decided to try this again and see what has changed now that its a Jen. I later found out…..nothing much actually haha.

[Hotel Review] Hotel Jen Orchard Gateway

This hotel has such a youthful vibe, it makes me feel old. I’ve been here countless time to wine and dine, but never to stay. And I have to admit: the only reason why we picked this spot for our 3D2N family staycation was because this is about the only hotel in Singapore whose lounge allows kids below 12 to enter. It was such a painful experience trying to find places who welcome the little tot.
