One of a cluster of hotels in the Marina/Suntec area, the Conrad Centennial stands out from the crowd. The 31-storey exterior is sleek and futuristic; the striking, tree-filled lobby is centred around a curved marble staircase and a postmodern sculpture. And the spacious bedrooms are decorated with taste and flair – an artful mix of minimalist and ornate styles. The creamy marble bathrooms ooze luxury. Business amenities include broadband and video/ audio conferencing. A palm-fringed pool and three restaurants complete the picture.
