Review: Four Points by Sheraton Singapore Riverview

I booked this hotel room on the day I stayed in, so I expect the rates to be running high. To my surprise, the rates are about the same with other dates in the future. Typically this hotel runs about 200SGD (150USD) per night. I booked this hotel for a little over 220SGD for my one night stay.

I was not planning to stay in a hotel in Singapore initially. However, I was forced to book a stay in the last second as my own house in Singapore started leaking rainwater into my bedroom. It was a very hectic day and I was extremely tired by the end of the day. The review may be not as detailed as usual because of that.

Arrival at hotel

I arrived at the hotel at 7am in the morning (requested early check-in) and the room was not ready yet, so I sat by the lobby and got some work done. The room was soon ready in less than 15 minutes. At least for Marriott/SPG properties, I have had really good luck in requesting early check-ins.

Check-in Desks Four Points by Sheraton Singapore Riverview

The lobby of this hotel has a high ceiling, and fairly nice looking. My only complaint is that there is a lack of seating. Only two small couch is available to seat in the lobby area. There is more seating during daytime in the bar area, but it was closed off at night when the bar closes.

I also requested a 4pm late check out and the associate confirmed that upon check-in. In the end, I was able to stay in the hotel room for 33 hours for the price of one night, which was very nice. I was also given vouchers for 2 free beer on top of the bonus points for being an SPG elite, which was a generous gesture.

Room Features

My room is a deluxe room with a city view. The room is slightly on the small side for a deluxe room but it did not bother me too much. I requested two beds as I have a friend joining me for the night.

The toilet is fair. There is no bathtub and only a shower.

A working desk is at the end of the room by the window. On the desk, there is a “handy” phone, similar to what I had a few weeks ago in the Westbury Mayfair Hotel in London. These phones are extremely useful while travelling as they provide free calls and google maps with free data.

Conclusion

This room is just what you expect from four points; it does not offer much but is totally an ok room. There is no slippers or bathrobe, just some bottled water in the room and an electric kettle. It is a fine hotel and room to stay in nonetheless, I just feel it lacks an identity in what it has to offer to its guests. Most of SPG hotels and brands have their unique offerings, but I see none in a Four Points.

This review is less detailed as I spent minimal time in my room and the hotel, feel free to comment below if you have anything you know about this hotel you wish to add!
