Celebrating my girlfriend's birthday. We booked an Ochird Suite. However, upon check in at the VIP lounge, I was served by Suherliz from the Front Desk. She was polite, cheerful and welcoming me and my partner. As we celebrating my partners birthday, Suherliz picked the phone to check with someone. The next minute, she told us that she is giving us a complimentary upgrade to Marina Suite!

We love the room and the service! Credits to the front desk for making my partners birthday a memorable one.

Amazing hotel design i ever been. Staying in level 20 have a nice view of Garden by the bay. The swimming pool on 57 floor also magnificent. We can see the city of singapore just from the swimming pool or observatory deck.
The best hotel in Singapore i ever been.

Room Tip: Faving the city is more expensive but in my opinion facing the Garden by the bay also magnificent.

Amazing structure and the best service I've had anywhere. The day I checked out I didn't fly until midnight. Not only could I store my luggage, they gave me cards to the pool for the day as well as a "refresh" room... all at no cost... room was very nice and modern and internet was fast. And the pool is one of a kind...

Top hotel with fantastic views overlooking Singapore and the Gardens at the Bay.
Were picked up from the airport and taken to this amazing looking hotel.
Rooms very spacious and clean. Pool on the 57th floor breath taking and very relaxing.
We only stayed for a few days but would not hesitate to visit again and stay longer( if I could afford it)
A very memorable short stay. We will be doing it again!!!!!

To be honest, I am a little conflicted when I write this review. The hotel is beautiful, we had a club room which was nice, with a great view of the city. We used the complimentary shuttle to and from the airport, which was a nice addition and the porter staff were great. Check in was pretty quick, but I often saw long queues throughout my stay.

We opted for the club room, and regularly ate at the club on the 57th floor for breakfast, afternoon tea, and cocktails/canapes - if you intend to use these amenities, then I would recommend paying up for the club room, as drinks in particular, can be quite expensive. The club staff were great, by the end they knew my name and asked us about our plans for the day, what we did, etc. so provided exceptional service. They were a real highlight of the trip.

We went to the Shoppes a few times and the casino once. We enjoyed the food court, they had quite a diversity of food - hawker style - but with higher prices. Some of the restaurants there are open 24 hours if you need a late night food fix. The Shoppes are mostly upscale and when we went, were generally pretty dead.

The pool is gorgeous, it can be quite busy at times, and the security staff seem to enforce the no visitors policy - one room key card for each adult - so make sure each person carries their card up to 57.

My negative experiences all had to do with my reservation. I had prepaid a room for 3 adults directly on the MBS website. At checkin, the clerk attempted to charge me in full again, until I alerted them it was prepaid. Even though I had booked a room for 3 adults and confirmed via separate email that 3 adults had club privileges, I was stopped at one visit to the club indicating only 2 adults were permitted. I had to forward copies of my correspondence/reservation to the staff to get it cleared up. I used the express checkout since we had an early departure and was surprised to note an additional charge on my credit card a few days later. Upon enquiry I was told that it was because my prepayment did not cover the full room rate. Once again I had to resend all of my original correspondence to get it reversed. While the above was very frustrating and annoying, the only good thing I can say is that all problems were rectified quickly and professionally.

We really did enjoy our stay at this hotel, and likely would stay there again, because the location is great, the club service top notch, and the rooms and views are awesome. Hopefully they get all of the bugs out of their reservation/accounting system though.

Room Tip: Club rooms provide good value if you use the daily breakfast, afternoon tea and early evening cockta...

Too crowded, not enough staff, not relaxing, check in awful . Do not make up room unless you call them (but do not tell you this) Information about facilities only available on TV which is not the most convenient, lift control by very poor card access system when for this modern a building you would expect at least a proximity card system. Staff generally helpful but overwhelmed. Quality and finish of room good but a/c noisy. bed comfortably. Restaurants over priced, house wine only available by glass or magnum. Truly an odd hotel best left to tourists on an overnight deal. I will return to the Mandarin
