“Everything — the shopping, the nightclubs, the shows, the restaurants, the museums — are within an easy walk of each other, and except in high summer, the weather is pleasant. Plus, unless there’s a big convention in town, airfares (see a list of current rates) remain more than reasonable almost anytime of year.” So writes George Hobica at the Huffington Post.

Marina Bay Sands voted top hotel two years in a row. CEI Industry Awards:
The integrated resort topped all hotels for the second consecutive year. George Tanasijevich, president and CEO of Marina Bay Sands (MBS), says: “This award is a strong recognition of Marina Bay Sands becoming the number one choice for event planners in Asia within a short time.”
He believes the biggest appeal lies in its integrated resort model, which combines the best of MICE facilities with luxury accommodation – at 2,561 rooms and suites, it is the largest capacity in Singapore – plus world-class entertainment, shopping and dining, right in the heart of town. At MBS, delegates can network and be entertained from morning to night.
“Our multi-faceted destination opens up more opportunities for organisers to stage creative and memorable events, such as hosting a cocktail reception at the SkyPark, followed by a private launch at the ArtScience Museum and ending off with a party at Avalon. Read the rest of this entry »

Writing at CNNGo—a terrific travel blog at CNN International—blogger “mrbrown” offers an amusing report about his stay at the Marina Bay Sands.
The view was the first thing that struck us. From our suite on the 52nd floor, I could see the Fullerton Hotel, the Esplanade “durians”, the Marina Floating Platform, and pretty much the entire CBD. It was pretty breathtaking.
My wife pointed to the tiny little white statue below and asked, “Where is the regular Merlion? I only see a mini one.”
“What do you mean? That IS the regular Merlion!”
“Oh,” she said sheepishly, “But it looks so small!”
“We are on the 52nd floor, dear. Everything looks small.”

“Las Vegas is an incredible place, massive, one of the most impressive places I’ve ever been. I won’t stay in a nicer hotel than The Palazzo, it had three TVs in our room. I’ve never quite been anywhere like it.” – Craig Thompson, 24, crowned the Poker In The Pub champion after a battle on ESPN at the World Series of Poker.

Author of the adorable blog Kinky Blue Fairy, Joyce Wong recently stayed at the Marina Bay Sands. With her cool pal Clem (the couple in the photo), it sounds like they had a blast. Money quote:
One of the favourite parts of our stay… was the team of butlers who took care of us. Thank you Razin, Shuane and Jermaine! They were so very attentive, wanting to walk us everywhere (mall, dinner, museum) so we wouldn’t get lost and ‘waste time’. And every night we returned to the suite, we’d find a little surprise!

When you walk into The Venetian or Palazzo, your nose quickly meets a distinct aroma–a fragrant blend of white jasmine flowers, roses, Italian mandarin oil, sandalwood, with notes of musk and amber.
It quietly pervades the air, surrounding you like…like…okay, I’m no poet.
Its official name is “Arancia.” Meaning “orange” in Italian. And the fragrance was created, as mentioned in the post below, by Aromasys, the company behind the smells of other leading brands in our industry: Bellagio, Wynn, MGM-Mirage Resorts, Marriott, InterContinental and Hilton.
Ever wonder how companies go about selecting their particular fragrance? Read the rest of this entry »
