Just want to share about my stay at Harris.
Located less than 5 mins (probably 2 mins) away from Waterfront City Ferry Terminal. A very family friendly hotel, the kids would love the dino mascot. There are many things you can do in the hotel; there's a bowling alley, a ping pong table, you can play basketball (I think) in the water and there's an adventure park which can also be used for team-building events. There's a cable-ski park right outside the hotel and it's very safe and people of all ages would love it (though the water is a bit dirty).
The hotel room is very spacious, we booked two standard rooms. Since it was a connecting room, one room had the king-sized bed and the other twin beds. Altogether, there were 6 of us and we could fit in the rooms comfortable. The sofa can be turned into a sofa-bed, but the king-sized bed can actually fit three girls comfortably. The view from the balcony was of the pool and it was quite nice actually. We requested for extra towels, pillows and blankets and even asked for bucket of ice twice, and all were delivered promptly.
The only negative thing about my stay at Harris was when I was checking out. Apparently, the staff had made a mistake during my check in (wrong conversion of currency) and had charged me less for my stay, so during check out, I was asked to top up an additional amount. Since it wasn't my fault, I refused to pay. The hotel was kind enough to admit their mistake and waive the payment. I thought they handled the situation well. Also, they had a mix up with out ferry tickets so had to send our tickets for re-print, which thankfully, didn't take long, although it did give us a little problem during our check in at the ferry terminal (since they had to re-print the tickets, it didn't have the stamp of our package and the terminal staff asked us to pay for fiscal, which was actually already included in the package).
Nevertheless, I highly recommend this hotel, especially to parents with young children who want to have fun but not leave the hotel.
