Anyone knows who is the current GM of Conrad Singapore? The previous GM (Mark Meaney) is now GM of Conrad Seoul.

The most recent General Manager responses on Tripadvisor are from Heinrich Grafe.

Given that this hotel is at the dying end of the room condition spectrum, and that Diamond upgrades are as rare as Diamonds, is this still a viable hotel to stay at for $300 SGD?

Do the lounge/service/amenities make up for the tired rooms and lack of upgrades?

I agree with wtcmor; I spent several nights here last month and was underwhelmed; only tangible Diamond benefit was free breakfast and while it was good (but not above average for Conrads), the lounge was wasn't (too small and thus, crowded).

You're absolutely right there. If you go down early the breakfast is good with smoked salmon but the lounge is bordering on fraudulent given that they actually have to turn people away on some evenings. I have no idea what people must think if they actually paid for an executive room expecting a top class lounge!

the new marriot across the street could be an option. At least everything is still brand new

Yes I have stayed at JW recently and also the Conrad a few days ago. Two different hotels. Conrad is old style classic and the JW is very modern. Rooms at JW are smaller but very nicely styled. Lounge at JW blows Conrad out the water. Very impressive. Don't get me wrong I still enjoy the Conrad as it is familiar with large rooms and good views. If I wasn't such a Hilton loyalist I would stay at JW when in Singore.
