This chic, light-filled tower in the waterfront Marina Centre business complex was designed by Pritzker Prize–winning architect Kevin Roche (who also co-designed New York City's U.N. Plaza). Inside, business travelers in expensive suits relax among an impressive collection of avant-garde American art, including paintings by Andy Warhol and Frank Stella and a spectacular Dale Chihuly glass sculpture that dominates the lobby. The 608 guest rooms are large (550 square feet for standard rooms), with dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the harbor. The marble bathrooms also have big octagonal windows (which have prompted the hotel staff to describe them as "the world's sexiest bathrooms"). Room furnishings are clean-lined but not minimalist, with just enough Asian touches (lacquered or dark-wood tables, silk throw pillows) to remind you you're in Singapore. The higher-priced rooms and suites (which can be up to 2,000 square feet) have feather beds and Bulgari bath products. The spa offers a decadent array of massages and treatments, including a chocolate fondue body wrap.

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
"Everything is modern" at this Marina Bay tower where the glass, marble, and chrome decor is "balanced with curtains and soft furnishings" and more than 4,200 artworks. "Light and airy guest rooms" offer water or city views; one- and two-bedroom suites have Acqua Di Parma bath amenities. The Sunday champagne brunch served under Greenhouse's textured glass dome comes with "very attentive service."
