Hilton Singapore Orchard has recently introduced a new set of experiences tailored specially for families and we were thrilled to be able to experience them on a recent stay.
With its unbeatable location, Hilton Singapore Orchard places you at the centre of all the shopping and food. However, with all the comfort and hotel amenities, you may find that you may just want to stay in and enjoy what hotel has to offer.
Hilton Singapore Orchard Review: Staying with Kids
On arrival at Hilton Singapore Orchard, we were warmly greeted at the check-in desk.

What made the experience even more special for the kids was that they got their own dedicated kids check-in counter.
They felt especially important as they went about filling up their own registration cards, guided along by friendly Kids Ambassadors.
Along with a welcome letter and a set of specially-designed wooden keycards, our family also received a Hilton Singapore Orchard Junior Explorer Drawstring Bag for each child. This was filled with fun little things to keep kids occupied.
These included an origami set and a plush toy created from upcycled hotel staff uniforms by Kloth, a female-led social enterprise aimed at supporting women from impoverished and vulnerable communities.
Especially fitting to the hotel’s location was a kids activity book designed around the theme of “Discover the Marvels of Orchard Road”.
Confirmed Connecting Rooms
One of the worries that can come about when travelling as a family is that if you have to get two rooms, there is a niggling concern that the rooms will be far away from each other or, gasp, on different floors.
Recognising this need, Hilton Singapore Orchard now offers a service known as Confirmed Connecting Rooms.
This service allows families to book and get immediate confirmation a set of connecting rooms. It takes away the stress and guesswork involved in booking multiple rooms as a family.
During our recent stay at Hilton Singapore Orchard, we were able to experience these connecting rooms.
Hilton Singapore Orchard’s Rooms
The rooms are extremely comfortable to say the least.
We had a king bed in one of the rooms and a set of twin beds in the other. Even with the king-sized bed, the room still felt spacious. With the connecting door, you can expect the kids to shuttle back and forth between the two rooms.
To make the kids feel especially at home, there was a thoughtfully prepared set of kids’ bathrobe, slippers, and toiletries in the room. It was a great way for even the youngest guests to feel pampered during their stay.
We also appreciated the hotel’s green efforts, for example by minimising single-use water bottles and bathroom amenities, to reducing its environmental footprint.
Kid-Friendly Dining Experiences
There are different dining options within Hilton Singapore Orchard. You can choose to pamper yourself with a meal at the restaurants Estate, Ginger.Lily, and Osteria Mozza.
Estate was our breakfast venue and the kids loved it. There was a dedicated kids’ corner where they could help themselves to whatever they fancied.
We also had the opportunity to enjoy the Grand Sunday Champagne Brunch. It was a treat with a lavish spread of delicious dishes.
There are also complimentary activities for kids including canvas painting and board games. To add to the enchantment, we were even entertained by a magician during our mealtime.
Activities for Kids at Hilton Singapore Orchard
One of the exciting activities in store for kids during at stay at Hilton Singapore Orchard is the all-new Junior Masterclass series. This will be held every first Saturday of the quarter, with the first commencing on 14 October 2023.
During the 1.5-hour masterclass, priced at $78++ per child, aspiring masterchefs will learn to prepare a three-course Italian meal from the culinary maestros at Osteria Mozza.
Meanwhile, adults can kick back and enjoy some light canapes and drinks (for a top up of $45++ per adult) while waiting for their junior chefs to complete the class.
In addition, the hotel’s outdoor pool also now offers child-sized floats for kids.

Families staying at Hilton can also enjoy exclusive curated promotional deals booked through Klook as part of Hilton’s new Kids Service Menu.
Amongst the curated activities for those staying at Hilton Singapore Orchard are visits to Museum of Ice Cream and exciting outdoor adventures at Gardens By The Bay. It is a great way for families to spend time together while discovering the attractions nearby, before returning to the luxurious comfort of the hotel.
Memories beyond the Stay
When it came time to say goodbye, the kids had the opportunity to doodle their memories of the experience on a customised postcard. They could choose to send their postcards anywhere using the hotel’s complimentary mailing service at the concierge.
This was a thoughtful gesture and a nice touch for the kids to capture their memories of a wonderful stay.
If you are looking for a short getaway with the family, Hilton Singapore Orchard could well be your go-to destination for creating treasured memories with your loved ones.
