Let's start with the staff. Every single one of them were attentive and courteous, professional without ever losing that personal touch. They knew our names when we walked in each day, for goodness sake. They asked us, not the other way around, what kind of help we needed the day before we checked out. They were wonderful, wonderful customer service professionals.
Then there was the room. The decor was lovely - fantastic actually. The place was spotlessly maintained during our stay every day, but the wonderful housekeeping staff.
The kitchenette was stocked with every tool a foodie needs to experience the local ingredients (I should mention, we're foodies - one of my partner's main goals in visiting the country at all was to play with S.E. Asian ingredients).
The hotel itself - the architecture was really quite fantastic. The pool was gorgeous, and the outdoor patio where we stopped for breakfast in the morning was just perfect. Also, the free breakfast was better than average, with someone ready to make eggs as ordered.
Location wise, I think if you're looking to experience real Singapore, you're in the right place. There's local food options at the next intersection, (hawker centres charging $2.80 onwards for a bowl of amazing noodles). That intersection is also an MRT (local subway) stop, two stops from downtown. There's a bank and a grocery store in the malls beside the subway.
We loved it, and will stay there again the next time we visit.
