Better location?

Hello which hotel has a better location? Holiday Inn Orchard City Centre or Novotel Clark Quay?

4 adults and 2 children (ages 13 and 8). We are sightseeing for 3 days before we catch a cruise. Thanks!

I would say Novotel Clark Quay is probably in a better location. But if you want a hotel that is steps away from the MRT station, Swissotel Merchant Court Clark Quay will be much nearer than Novotel Clark Quay.

It depends on what you like. I think Holiday Inn Orchard City Centre is a better quality hotel in terms of service. It is conveniently located near to Orchard Road with a lot of malls and shops. There are more food courts to choose from.

Clarke Quay is more for proximity to the Singapore River and nightlife. The area is pretty quiet in the day. There is a 24h food court at Liang Court; the rest are restaurants which are more expensive due to the location, or you can go to Chinatown.

Both are well located. Depends if you want to be able to walk to Chinatown or walk around Orchard Rd when you step outside your hotel. Also depends on what each hotel is offering you as in price, room etc.
