Where to stay

We are going to Singapore for 4 nights in February. Which is better - the Shangri-la Hotel or the Ritz Carlton? Anyone stayed in both?

depending on what u r looking for in a hotel and which category of rooms u r going for in both hotels.

If u r staying at the Valley Wing of the Shang, that would be my choice.

Nowadays, Ritz has their club rooms too so if u get those, that will be pretty good too (coz of the views even for the deluxe rooms). Also the basic rooms at the Ritz are bigger.

I havent been to the Ritz recently (within a year or two) so I can tell u if the rooms are still well maintained. Shangri la had just finished updating their Tower rooms so if u like a newer feel, u can try this instead.

If I have a choice for a basic room in either of these hotels, I will go with Ritz (also for its location).

Good Luck.
