Prior to our visit, we emailed the hotel to arrange for a cot for our baby. The hotel had placed us in a quiet room. Albeit our room had no view, we were thankful for this arrangement as there was an ongoing festival along the river.
The hotel is in a strategic location, and there are many restaurants, cafes and bars along Clarke Quay and Robertson Quay.
Most areas around the hotel were stroller-friendly. However, the entrance to the Clarke Quay MRT did not have a ramp, and we had to carry our stroller up a short flight of stairs.
We chose not to take the breakfast deal at the hotel (SG$33 per person), and instead ventured out for breakfast along the river. Some cafes were open from around 8am. There is a Yakun kopitiam (coffee place) just around the corner of the hotel in the Central Mall which is great for a quick breakfast (kaya toast).
For a cheap breakfast, try Yakun kopitiam. Iced coffee and "kaya" toast for around SG$4 per person. Also try the Epicurious cafe for breakfast - 10 minute walk away along Robertson Quay. Voted the best place for breakfast according to TimeOut Singapore.
For drinks, go to Sque just outside the hotel along Clark Quay. Best deal for beers, 1 for 1 with long happy hours
