Singapore’s first Courtyard by Marriott property is ready to accept hotel guests on 1 November 2017. With 25 rooms per level from level 22 to 32 of the Royal Square at Novena mixed-use development, Courtyard by Marriott Singapore Novena’s rooms are all 22 sqm with two types of views – City vs Garden.
The hotel is centrally located close to Health City Novena, for overseas visitors who are coming to Singapore for medical tourism. The hotel is also connected to Square 2, Velocity, Novena Square as well as the Novena MRT station. It is just two MRT train stops away from Orchard Station which is the beginning of Singapore’s Orchard shopping belt.
Located opposite the hotel is the newly renovated and opened Novena Catholic Church of St. Alphonsus. My favourite haunt in the area is located just next to the hotel at Square 2 mall where you can get local favourites such as dry laksa, dry mee siam, heng hua noodle soup and a couple of other noodle dishes at NOW Noodles.
The lobby is located on level 22. This is where you check in and also get your grab and go coffee and cakes throughout the day. Also located on the same level are two small meeting rooms.
