All-inclusive boutique business hotel in Singapore covers virtually everything
The economy may be a shambles, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t still a market for creature comforts, especially when travelling. With that in mind, a new hotel recently opened in Singapore to provide a bespoke, all-expenses-covered stay. And unlike all-in beach resorts aimed at holidaymakers, Quincy is a city hotel targeting business (and leisure) travellers. Situated just steps away from Singapore’s Orchard Road, Quincy is a 108-room boutique hotel where the room rate covers virtually everything. Guests begin their pampering visit with complimentary limousine pickup from the airport and free wifi during the 20-minute ride. Three meals a day at the hotel are also included, as are cocktails from 6 to 8 pm. Minibar supplies are free and replenished daily, and all the hotel’s studio rooms feature premium king-sized mattresses draped with feather beddings, separate bathtub and rain shower, and windows custom-designed with modular shapes that vary from room to room. Free internet, a laptop safe and a wardrobe stocked with amenities such as bathrobes and slippers are also included, and the hotel will even pick up the tab for two pieces of laundry per room per night. Rates for June currently begin at about SGD 218 (USD 150 / EUR 107) per night. It’s a smart move—cost-cutting measures have slashed corporate travel budgets, and those travelling for business might well be swayed by a hotel that will pamper them without presenting a long, itemized bill or unexpected charges. Since the hotel opened in March, it has reportedly enjoyed occupancy rates of about 76 percent, according to industry publication Hotels.
