Fodor's Expert Review Crowne Plaza Changi Airport

75 Airport Blvd., Changi, North East, 819664, Singapore

This is no ordinary airport hotel—and no ordinary Crowne Plaza, either. Connected by a walkway from Terminal 3, the lobby opens into a serene cocoon of undulating earth tones. Public areas link to lush gardens; rainforest trees are on view through a water-covered skylight; and Zen-like canals and gardens connect outdoor passages to guest rooms and a palm tree–studded swimming pool. Attentive staff and a top-notch concierge work hard to ease travel stresses, and will meet bleary-eyed guests at the gate to escort them through immigration to their rooms for free. VIP club access, which includes Wi-Fi, breakfast, snacks, drinks, and laundry, costs extra. With the subway below the lobby, downtown Singapore is 30 minutes away.
