We took advantage of the long weekend here in Singapore to have a staycation at M Hotel. The hotel was chosen mainly for it's close proximity to the nearby attractions and also for it's value.
Check in was generally smooth and we were given the keys to our room promptly. I did feel that the receptionist could have been more warm and welcoming. I understand that this is a business hotel but given that it was the weekend with many other families coming in for a staycation, I felt that the reception given was rather cold and business like. Another issue I had was that I booked a room that came with breakfast but the receptionist told me that there was not. I later phoned the reception again to confirm and they told me that there was. Hopefully such mistakes could be looked into because I was confused for a moment.
I was given a free upgrade to a club level room but without access to the club lounge. The room was cosy and generally clean save for a piece of tissue paper which was found near the desk. I think housekeeping has to make a note of this because it may throw guests off. You are also provided with coffee and tea making facilities and basic toiletries to make your stay more comfortable. Free wifi was a plus. Our room was facing the city and you could request for a room which faces the harbor if you desire.
The pool area was very nice and we took the opportunity to have some fun with our 1 year old son. There is also a gym and a spa located on the same floor as well.
Because the hotel is located in the business district, do take note that most restaurants/eateries/cafes are closed during the weekend. There is a 24 hour macdonalds nearby if you need to grab a bite and a 7 eleven as well.
Buffet breakfast was served at the lobby at Cafe 2000. There is a decent spread of local food, the must have egg/omelette station. Service at the restaurant was prompt and our plates were cleared on a regular basis.
As mentioned earlier, the hotel was chosen for it's location to nearby local attractions. You can take a 5 minutes bus/taxi ride to chinatown or boat quay. The hotel is also a 5-7 minutes walk from tanjong pagar mrt station so various modes of transport is within easy reach. Also because it was the weekend, the area was mostly quiet so despite it being in the central business district, the feel we got was rather relaxing
M Hotel was good value for money in my opinion and an alternative to the hotels in the marina orchard area which may be more popular but more expensive. It's a short travelling distance to local attractions such as chinatown and marina bay. I think the hotel can definitely improve on it's hospitality and housekeeping to really make it more competitive.
