Crowne Plaza Changi Airport
Location: Changi, Singapore
Offering both overnight and daytime stays (the latter for any extra-long layovers), the Crowne Plaza Changi Airport dares to promise travelers a slice of serenity just steps from the airport's Terminal 3. And it delivers. Taking a cue from Singapore's garden city reputation, the hotel has the feel of a tropical resort, complete with gardens, a landscaped pool area, and a leafy outdoor courtyard. The peaceful vibe continues into the guest rooms with a range of options to help you sleep better, including plush bedding, aromatherapy kits, and designated quiet zones.
Why It Stands Out: The Crowne Plaza Changi Airport is a genuine work of art. Designed by the award-winning team at WOHA in Singapore (the same folks who built the Stadium and Bras Basah MRT Stations as well as the nearby School of Arts), the hotel's façade is well worth a walk outside. Wrapped in a 3-D batik sunshade, the innovative design offers peeks into the interior gardens.
