“Don't upgrade from Superior to Deluxe Room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2011

Stayed at two separate occasions in this hotel. Jan28-Jan 30, 2011and Feb1-5, 2011. We booked a superior room for our first stay and the rate includes breakfast. The only issue is instead of a king size bed, we had a twin bed joined together which is not a big deal, its just that the phone is also on the bed with the alarm clock. On our second stay, we booked a deluxe room. I am expecting a more cozy room because we payed higher but suddenly the room given is smaller. Its at the end of the hallway right in front of the fire exit. I complained at the front desk and ask to be transfered to another room, and the deluxe room given is just the same as the superior room we had previously. The room and all amenities are the same. Why we payed more? I just thought that is a hotel tactic to fool the guests. I still complained and ask for the manager but the guy on the front desk said the manager is on a meeting. The front desk cannot explain to me why the superior room and the deluxe room is exactly looks the same? He told me that he will inform the manager with the issue but we didn't received a reply back since then. I didn't complain any further just to avoid any argument. This is just one of the those hotels that will try to get money from you in any way they can. If you're planning to have an upgrade, don't do so. It's not worth it. Would I recommend this? Just book superior room, which is the lowest room rate. Most likely the more expensive rooms is just the same. Not worth any upgrade!

Nice Hotel. I stayed at the executive room and I enjoyed the food and services at the executive lounge. The concierge was helpful in coordinating the tour.

Not my first stay at the Roxy, and the standard hasnt altered since my last stay a few years back. The hotel is modern and clean, the staff are friendly and efficient. While not located in the city area, the hotel is not far from town by frequent bus services at the front door and of course, being Singapore, taxis are cheap and plentiful, the ride to town shouldnt cost more than S$10. The hotel does run a free shuttle to the nearest MRT station, but its a one way only trip, you find your own way back. The big thing to the Roxy is location,15 mins from Changi, 15 mins from town, and right across the road is the Parkway Parade shopping centre which will provide most things you want from shops/dept stores to food of hawker standard thru to restaurant standard. There are supermarkets, coffee shops, pharmacies, banks, telco providers, etc. Less than 15 mins walk away is the East Coast park, somewhere the locals go to get some space, ride bikes, walk, jog, fish, swim or BBQ. Worth a visit and to stretch the legs. For the more enegertic bikes are available for hire. There is more shopping and places to eat in the streets around the hotel. The neighborhood is one of the better ones in Singapore, and of course being Singapore its safe and clean.

The hotel although located away from centre of the city , is only a short $S8 taxi ride away. Clean,quite hotel with friendly staff. The rooms were modern and well appointed. The food offerings at the hotel were far too expensive for the average traveller and forces guests to eat nearby at many good eateries.
