Tough this is not my favourite hotel I have stayed in during holidays in asia, it was equipped with everything you need to relax, like comfy beds Andy a pool, and the foyer is visually nice to look at.
It is a short walk from orchard road, with lots of food places on the corner, including the hard rock cafe in the same street as the hotel. Unfortunately after a long day out in Singapore, walking back from the station down on orchard road, the short walk feels like an eternity, but on the whole, it's still a good location for everything on orchard road.
The hotel is attached to another shopping mall, where there is shops selling DVDs, clothes, toy shops, restaurants (such as Nandos, Thai and Indian), take away food shops, cake and dessert shops and a super market.
The pool was nice and the was never more than ten or so people swimming at the one time. We also enjoyed the spa.
The one thing that was negative for us, is when we got there and we were tired from travel, there was mix up with our rooms, as we had specifically booked for adjoining rooms, and they had actually given us two rooms on different floors. That took a while to figure out but once it was figured out we were fine.
