The hunt for the best boutique hotel experience is up! As such, I gave the hubby a weekend staycation treat at the Quincy Hotel after I discovered its all-inclusive package that covered the following:
- Daily buffet breakfast, set lunch & dinner
- Unlimited broadband internet access
- Local telephone calls
- Complimentary cocktails from 6pm to 8pm nightly
- Complimentary minibar, replenished daily
- Complimentary bottle of red wine
- Late check-out till 3pm
- Complimentary carparking
Quincy Hotel is well located in town, just a 5-10 minutes walk from Paragon so it’s pretty easy to get around from the hotel.
The lobby area was rather small and the hotel restaurant where breakfast, lunch and dinner were served was just next to it on the first level. iMac stations were placed in the lobby for guests to surf the internet. I was quite fascinated with the glass-enclosed pool on the 12th floor where you could get a good view of the surroundings and probably residents in the nearby apartments could get a good view of you too, haha. A gym was also available for hotel guests. Apparently, there were sauna and steam room facilities too but we missed that.
Next day’s lunch and dinner consisted of pan-fried salmon with wedges, ravioli with bacon in olive oil, nasi goreng, club sandwich and apple strudel. Except for the strudel dessert, I thought the main courses tasted fairly decent. Not overly fantastic but still above average compared to some other hotels.I didn’t take any photos during breakfast though as the items were quite standard like toast, cereals, sausages, bacon, scrambled egg, hash browns, nasi goreng, chicken porridge, etc. Breakfast wasn’t great and in fact, I hardly ate so no further comments on that.Overall, it had been a very pleasant stay. We received impeccable service from the hotel staff who were always polite and attentive. Our room was clean and well maintained and really gave us a cosy ‘just like home’ feel. Would definitely be back again (if there is any special promotional rate as $288++ is still considered pricey) if I need a lazy weekend to just stay in to watch movies and to have my three meals even without stepping out of the building.
