it's frequently rated the best airport hotel globally from what I can gathe
I think that refers to the Crowne Plaza which is not a transit hotel - it's landside and you must pass through Singapore immigration to stay there. It's also much more expensive than the transit hotels.

That said I do recommend the Ambassador (I think one of the terminals has a different operator for its transit hotel but I understand the facilities are similar). Keep in mind like any hotel these do book out during busy periods, so definitely book in advance. Be prepared to go to one in a different terminal if required.

Hey everyone, wanted to update some information here

Just got off the phone with SATS Premier Lounge at SIN T2. Explained that I will be arriving late night into SIN and have a MH connecting flight next morning. The person on the phone said that as I'm OW Sapphire and flying MH as my next flight I'm elgible to use the SATS at T2 on the day of flight.

That means, I have to sit out for 90 mins before the next day begins and head to SATS T2.

Now, hopefully, QF issues all the BP's for my entire onward journey :) so that I don't have to find a MH transfer desk at 11 PM in the night

I'm still leaning more towards spending the night in the transit hotel, but, I thought I'd pass on the information I received.

Cheers,
Ade

Are you saying you recommend ambassador over crowne Plaza for landside? I was making a general comment rather than suggesting poster should stay at the Plaza, as I'm aware its landside - I'm waiting at the airport for over 12 hours and decided that given the price difference, which wasn't too large given my length of stay, the crowne looks like a great option relative to transit hotels - happy to be proven wrong though

Ps I should've added I'm not in transit, as it's a stop-over but I need to wait at airport for someone to arrive

Is it all on one PNR? If not, then that would be unlikely.
