    I like the services. With so many parents using the baby equipment I kind of wonder of the wear and tear safety situation of the baby equipment.

    Next time we go to Singapore, Swissotel will be one of our options! Love the colorful room with kids table and toys! I’m a mom who never feels comfortable and secure leaving my toddler with stranger, ie. professional nanny. So I bring my son even to a supposed to be romantic dinner with my husband. After all we are all one item now! :)

  3. Great recommendations! I do love to travel with my whole family – many generations including the newest additions. We have found vacation rentals to be the most convenient for our family. There is more room my daughter’s own things instead of using (sometimes questionable) baby equipment. And the whole family loves to spend the time together instead of separated into rooms or suites.

    Good point, Michelle… vacation homes can be ideal for families, giving ample space and privacy. Although our children aren’t tiny any more, we use them regularly. Hotels can sometimes offer something similar, though – the last hotel I stayed at in Ireland had self-catering (what you call ‘vacation rental’) accommodation in the grounds, and we have many times stayed in a large suite or two interconnecting rooms (great for a family of four, but perhaps not as suitable if you’re wanting to share time with extended family).

    Great post! Oohh, I’d love to try Swissotel Merchant Court the next time I travel to Singapore with my family.
