Decided to stay at the Quincy Hotel because of good reviews it has. It has no car park so if you are driving, you need to park at its sister hotel, the Elizabeth Hotel, next door. The 'tunnel' to the car park is really narrow and cash card needs to be slotted at the gantry for entry. Unfortunately for me, this tunnel posed a problem for me when I exited and the side of my car was scratched.
Check in was not an issue and we managed to check in early and had both rooms side by side. Rooms are relatively huge and there was a lot of concealed spaces like the wardrobe which is only revealed when you close the bathroom door. The ironing board was also behind a glass panel.
The window curtains were see through until we figured out that a blackout blind can be lowered with a switch beside the bed.
What we didn't like was the toilet seat which didn't rest well on the toilet bowl so we had surprises and fears of cracking the seat at times. To resolve this, we decided to lift up the seat. One room also had problems with the bathtub. Couldn't drain the water and had to call housekeeping which sent the technician quite quickly to help. The problem recurred again but since we were checking out, we didn't trouble the technician again.
If you need usb charging outlets, you won't find any so bring your own. There was a phone with data plan in each room so it would be useful to foreigners staying there. Wifi is complimentary and publications are available for download in pressreader.
Food is part of the reason we stayed there. 6.45 to 12 breakfast has the widest selection of food, 12 to 2 is lunch and 6 to 8.30 is dinner. All day refreshments refer to the bottles of cookies, tortilla chips and mixed trail... no more cashew nuts from previous reviews. We checked out on a Saturday and realised that cream cakes were served in the afternoon and there was some activity going on in the dining area. Not that the cheesecake wasn't good but I was looking for cream cakes. How we wished we had stayed another night! Complimentary mini bar and water and H2O can be found at the 12th level where the swimming pool and gym are. Not really an infinity pool but it allows a great view and there is a glass peekaboo panel on the pool bottom which allows you to admire the scenery and road below. This is a novelty cos I have not seen this anywhere else.
Security is good. Entrance to the hotel entrance, lifts to room etc is via your room key. No wonder they didn't even need to check our room numbers when we had our meals.
Quincy hotel is good for a stay-in-hotel Staycation. The road down to Orchard Road is a challenge for people not used to slopes. The other way to Scotts Road via York Hotel car park past Goodwood Park hotel is more manageable. It would be good to provide a shuttle service for people who may want to shop around Orchard Road. However we saw a lot of taxis along the road so hailing a cab should not be a problem. There is also a Grab taxi booth near the reception area.
