I drove by this hotel on my previous visit to Singapore and decided to stay there next time, just for the architecture. It is very conveniently located near Chinatown and Clarke Quay.
We had a Club Room and that was the best thing about the stay. The Orchid Club lounge was excellent for breakfast and High Tea as well as drinks "Happy Hour". The Filipina staff were very friendly and are a credit to the hotel. I shall definately go back just for them.
The restaurant (there is only one) was a bit of a disappointment. It's a very modern glass and chrome affair and therefore very noisy. The food was average, perhaps they were trying to be too trendy because my wife had to send her Laksa back. Now if you cannot make a decent Laksa in Singapore something is definately wrong (it was too thick, almost solid). Never mind, there are plenty of restauarants nearby.
Similar to another reviewer, I was a bit surprised how small the room was and the wardrobe is not big enough for 2 people's clothes. The modern switches do take a bit of getting used to. Beware, the mini bar is one of those annoying automatic ones where as soon as you move something (example if you want to put your own drinks inside) you will get charged for it. A personal hate.
