Hotel in Colonial District, the Quays & Marina Bay

With its lobby on level 32, it's not surprising that Singapore's Westin offers spectacular views. Peel your eyes away from the floor-to-ceiling windows to appreciate elegant rooms graced with heavenly beds and deep-soaking tubs; a luxurious spa with hot tubs (accessible to all guests); and a lofty infinity pool.

The 24-hour gym offers workout-gear rental, while the hotel's 'run concierge' leads early-morning runs through the city every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Despite its location in a soulless construction zone, the hotel is steps away from the MRT and within easy walking distance of the CBD and Marina Bay.
