I stay very frequently at this wonderful gem of a hotel because of business. I have spent two weeks at a time most months at his hotel for the past two years. This hotel makes you feel like you are entering a home away from home from the very first time you get out of your cab after a long plane trip. Starting from the Bell Man to the receptionist staff and then the room cleaning staff there is nothing but praise that I can heap on the staff. I stay in the Horizon Club rooms and this is indeed a very special place. Led ably by Abigail Paul this place is truly a sanctuary for business people. Ms Paul and her staff cannot do enough for you and at 6pm you are treated to a king's buffet at drinks. I dare anyone to leave this place not satiated. The breakfasts are special events at the club and the vast buffet at the main restaurant should be tried at least once.
The hotel is situated just off Orchard Road and the frequent transport to various spots means that you dont miss out of not staying on the crowded Tourist thoroughfare. This is one of the oldest five star hotels in Singapore and that means that it has a very special Singapore charm about it and one of the largest pools in any hotel in Singapore. I would gladly recommend the Shang to any business or leisure traveller.
I travel a lot and this is my favourite hotel.
