From now till 2 December 2020, IHG is running a Cyber Sale that offers 50% off hotel stays with a minimum of two nights. This creates some very attractive opportunities to book staycations in Singapore, as we’ll soon see.
All rates booked under the Cyber Sale require a 1-night non-refundable deposit. Stays must be completed by 30 June 2021, and dates can be changed without penalty at least 24 hours before arrival.
IHG Cyber Sale
Here’s some rates I managed to find for random dates in December, January, Feburary and March. As you’ll note, most of IHG’s properties in Singapore are only anticipated to open for staycations come January, although this is obviously subject to change (Regent is only taking bookings from April).

I have to say, I really like the look of those rates at the Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo and InterContinental Robertson Quay.
I’m seeing weekend rates at the InterContinental Robertson Quay from S$149.50++ a night in March 2021, which is a sensational price to pay for a hotel of this caliber.
In fact, it’s probably more worth it to upgrade your stay with breakfast and lounge privileges for an additional S$40++ per night.
If you’re willing to wait till April 2021, you can find some very competitive rates at the Regent Singapore too. The Good Friday long weekend from 2-4 April 2021 prices from S$168++ per night.
Elsewhere, Hotel Indigo may not have the best of locations (Katong), but it’s still a very highly rated property and with rates of just over S$100, it’s hard to go wrong.
Unfortunately, this sale does not extend to Hong Kong, so even if the travel bubble does eventually open up in December, you’ll have to look at other options.
IHG has a wide selection of properties in Singapore to suit all budgets, so play around with the rates and see what comes up. Remember: all stays require a minimum of two nights (you won’t see the rates if you just choose one night), and there’s a non-refundable one night deposit to be made upon booking.
I’m mighty tempted by the InterContinental Robertson Quay as the pre-COVID reviews look very nice indeed. There’s no official word yet on when the hotel will reopen, but you’ll presumably get a full refund if their SHN stint gets extended and clashes with your stay.
