As we mentioned in our previous post, we just got back from spending a couple days in Singapore and could not wait to share our first experiences with two Hotel Jen properties. After one night at Hotel Jen Orchardgateway, we had our last night in Singapore at Hotel Jen Tanglin! It was only about a 10 minute cab ride over, and in a slightly more residential area of the city at the start of Orchard road. We really felt like we had two different experiences at each property and wanted to share our top 3 favorite things about our stay with Hotel Jen Tanglin!
The hotel's design in Tanglin was so unique and design savy. It felt very boutique-esque and we couldn't help but notice all the special details. For example, the hotel's lobby is designed to look almost like a baggage claim area at the airport, with the circular sofas mimicking a conveyer belt and the reception desks like a stack of suitcases. There is even a map in the lobby of SIngapore where guests can share their favorite spots to grab a bite, which provides so many hidden gems and local treasures to explore. Our room was perfectly set up for the modern traveler with a comfy sofa right by the window (with an amazing view btw) and a mobile marble table perfect for working from the laptop.
Just like in our previous post, we were so in love with having access to the club lounge 24/7. Even if you need a midnight snack, you are able to access the lounge with your room key and have a bite to eat or a drink. There was also a Christmas tree in the lounge that made us feel right at home, and the deep wood accents and dark tones make us feel so cozy and comfortable. For happy hour, the receptionist gave us a glass of sangria she made and it was spectacular. We were also there for sushi night, and had so many delicious rolls and sashimi to choose from! We filled up on appetizers and were way too full to even go to dinner, so we decided to take advantage of the hotel's amazing wifi and get some work done in the lounge instead.
The staff at Hotel Jen Tanglin were all so friendly, helpful, and welcoming. We were blown away! We received a full tour of the hotel from the start and were able to learn so much about the hotel's design and signature characteristics because of it. Also, we couldn't help but notice the receptionist, Joy, in the club lounge was beyond gracious towards everyone she came in contact with, and she even gave us so many tips for our upcoming trip to the Philippines! It is always so nice when staff goes above and beyond to make their guests feel welcomed, and Hotel Jen Tanglin did just that.
We loved our stay at the stylish Hotel Jen Tanglin and there are so many other reasons why we enjoyed it! Their hourly shuttle service that takes you to Orchard Road, the 24hr gym, gorgeous pool, and amazing coffee shop in the lobby are all reasons we know for sure we would never get tired of staying at this property! We hope you choose to experience it for your self sometime soon!
