One of Singapore’s most popular staycation options, the PARKROYAL on Pickering (now known as PARKROYAL COLLECTION Pickering, Singapore), has announced that it is reopening to staycation guests from 1st November 2020, with a launch offer starting at S$196++ for GHA DISCOVERY members.
Having originally told us earlier this week that they were “unable to provide a reopening date at the present moment”, the hotel confirmed to Mainly Miles today that it will in fact be back in November.
“We are reopening for staycations from 1 November 2020 onwards. Your readers can visit our website to make a booking now.”PARKROYAL COLLECTION Pickering, Singapore
The PARKROYAL is kicking off with a few staycation offers for rooms booked directly through its website from 1st November 2020, with free cancellation until 48 hours prior to arrival.
Note that these offers are typically available every night of the week, but some of the perks can only be applied for Monday to Thursday bookings.
Staycay Breakfast Offer (from S$248++)
Staycay Everyday! (from S$218++)
COLLECTION Club Offer (from S$348++)
Rates are based on an ‘Urban Room’ / COLLECTION Room and progressively increase as you work up through the various categories:
- S$248++ Lifestyle Room
- S$268++ Signature Room
- S$308++ COLLECTION Room
- S$318++ Urban Junior Suite
- S$328++ COLLECTION Lifestyle Room
- S$368++ COLLECTION Signature Room
- S$425++ COLLECTION Lifestyle Junior Suite
- S$510++ COLLECTION Signature Suite
Member rates are even cheaper
GHA DISCOVERY members get a minimum of 10% off all room rates, so simply log in (or sign-up if you need to) and you’ll see the discount applied with the same benefits and terms and conditions.
This brings up staycation rates as low as S$196.20++ per night.
Formerly known as the Orchid Club, this is the hotel’s 15th-floor executive lounge for those staying in a COLLECTION room category.Pro Tip: GHA Platinum members get a one-category room upgrade and GHA Black members get a two-room category upgrade on check-in, subject to availability. In theory therefore a Platinum member should get a room with club lounge access by booking an Urban Junior Suite, while a Black member should only have to book a Signature Room to enjoy the same space-available upgrade.
Prices on the staycation offer start at S$308++ per night for a COLLECTION Room, which is S$277++ for GHA members. Again, it’s free to join the GHA DISCOVERY club, so there’s no reason not to do so before booking these deals.
“The COLLECTION Club Lounge will reopen together with the rest of the hotel.”PARKROYAL COLLECTION Pickering, Singapore
Inclusions at the club lounge are:
- All-day refreshments (non-alcoholic)
- Champagne breakfast from 6.30am to 10.30am
- Afternoon tea from 2pm to 4pm
- Evening cocktails from 6pm to 8pm
- Exclusive access to outdoor rooftop terraces
The Champagne breakfast is a big highlight here, though unfortunately you’ll have to settle for Prosecco during the evening cocktail hours.

The popular and eco-friendly “hotel-in-a-garden” PARKROYAL on Pickering is back from November 2020, which will be welcome news for many who have been waiting to book.
With a great location on the edge of Chinatown but also walking distance to Boat Quay and Clarke Quay, plus a large swimming pool and fantastic 15th-floor club lounge, it’s easy to see why many of our readers have been asking when this one will be reopening.
Staycation rates are attractive from as little as S$192, given that rooms previously started at around S$320 per night based on Agoda data from 2019.
Our advice would be to try and secure a COLLECTION room category for access to the excellent club lounge, since the hotel will be offering its Champagne breakfast there on reopening.
Alternatively, GHA Platinum or Black members can cross their fingers for a one or two category upgrade respectively into a COLLECTION room on check-in.
