Recently had a short overnight layover in Singapore & there are limited options near the airport
Airport hotel rooms have no openable windows
Stayed at Dusit Singapore near the airport, 10 mins by taxi
Does have flights going quite close to the hotel
Nice hotel, amazingly long outside swimming pool, awesome breakfast.
Minimum room tariff is S $304 not including taxes and fees, which is not that much for Singapore now
I think Dusit overall might do well down the track, as an upmarket hotel band
That’s now cheap for singapore!
Thanks for sharing.
GABLE: Well, the first day was a little bit disappointing for a new stock but maybe it will get better tomorrow (i do remember another recent new stock – forgot its name, though which one it was – which also had a very sluggish first trading day but the second one was great).
CEO, a professional hire, was the CFO of ANAN as it was slowly detonating.
