Although it is located close to Singapore’s hottest nightspots near the Central Business District, the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel is by no means close to a MRT (subway) station. However, it is located next to the Singapore River, which should make for a good view if you get the right rooms. While the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel is mostly recognized by travel agents as a five-star hotel, the room amenities would suggest a 4 star rating instead. However, it does have comprehensive business facilities such as secretarial services and fully-furnished serviced offices. It also has comprehensive health and leisure facilities belonging to large hotels such as a health and fitness centre with an outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts etc.
One point of note is that the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel is located next to Zouk, a popular nightclub for young people, so it is not uncommon to see teens loitering around on the street that the hotel is on in the wee hours of the morning. The Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel serves great breakfast, and affordable eateries can be found near the hotel. In addition, a shopping mall is only a stone’s throw away. Having said that, the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel is not very near the main shopping belt of Orchard, in that the distance is a little too far for walking, so a taxi ride of would be the most convenient. A short bus ride is also possible. (Learn more about transportation in Singapore)
In conclusion, the Grand Copthorne Waterfront would be more suitable for the business traveler than the holiday traveler.
