[Hotel Review] Starlux-ury: Hilton Taipei Sinban

With the inaugural flight out of the way, it was time to make my way to my home for the next 3 days! This stay ended up with more hiccups than I anticipated though but I survived.

[Hotel Review] SUITE DREAMS – Conrad New York Downtown

Grabbed from official site

My last night in NYC was supposed to be spent in TWA as I thought it would be quite a cool experience but then I saw a pretty decent deal on Hotelux which included a USD100 hotel credit, double points, free breakfast, plus possible late check out due to my Diamond status. I was going to have to pay about the same at TWA as the property required cash top up for a late check out which I needed, so I figured why not stay here and earn some points while at it.

[Trip Report] Suite Dreams

After my completely devastating forced cancellation of my Etihad Apartment due to COVID (thankssss again), I had shelved any thoughts of flying First (on any airlines) as the roller coaster of disappointment was not something I want to go through again. Yeesh.

[Hotel Review] Hilton Singapore Orchard

Grabbed from official website

The opening of this property in April 2022 was much awaited because the Hilton properties in Singapore very much needed a new hotel to inject some excitement about their brand. As expected, prices for this property soared to pre-covid times especially after Singapore announced the rather blanket re-opening of borders so I am super glad I booked this almost 8 months ahead!

Time to experience the largest Hilton in APAC.

[Hotel Review] Conrad Centennial Singapore – Centennial King Suite

Grabbed from official site

My last experience here was during my Hilton Honors mattress run, pre-covid. How times have changed, including prices! With low-ish prices, I figured its time to experience a full stay while I still have Diamond status. After suffering from multiple postponements, its finally time to be here and experience how things have changed in the post-COVID era!

[Hotel Review] Hilton Singapore – King Hilton Executive

Grabbed from official site

I last tried this property as a day stay during my mattress run back in 2019, pre-COVID. Its reputation has since tumbled in COVID times: huge crowds and slow service during high occupancy times, plus cost-cutting measures especially for its what-use-to-be not bad Executive Lounge cocktail hours. Despite all these, I made a booking anyways just to check it off as part of my staycay craze.

[Hotel Review] Conrad Bangkok

When I realized my Amex KFA voucher was expiring in Dec 2019, I hatched a plan to use it without having to take leave. And the general consensus for the property to get the most value out of it is Conrad Bangkok.

But rooms look terribly dated then and I never ventured near since.

And so I thought it was timely that they have recently completed their extensive refurbishment so the stars were aligned.

[Hotel Review] DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang

This is my 3rd DoubleTree experience but my first a resort property.

I stalked Tripadvisor prior to my visit and saw some negative reviews of the property including stained sofas etc. But I steeled myself knowing it cannot be that bad as it still carries the Hilton brand. Plus my reservation was non refundable.

[Hotel Review] Conrad Seoul

Spontaneous Seoul 2019


The only Conrad I’ve ever stayed in was in Singapore.

So Conrads have been on my wishlists ever since I got my Diamond. Yays to lounge access and room upgrades! And this fell nicely into my atas trip itenary so I was super psyched to try this at seemingly 50% off during the 100hr flash sale.

Address – 10 Gukjegeumyung-ro Yeouido Yeongdeungpo-gu, Seoul,07326, South Korea. Website.
