On a previous visit to Singapore we watched this hotel being built, we decided based on it's design and green principles, to book for this years holiday. I am impressed.
I booked a club room, this included access to the club on level 16, breakfast, wifi, laundry service and free non-alcoholic drinks from the minibar. This was well worth the added cost, I believe we received more value given the food and beverages available throughout the day.
The room was great and a good size, the view from our 13th floor room was amazing. The bed was very comfortable. On our first night we couldn't work out why the aircon was so hot (turns out it was broken). A word with housekeeping first thing in the morning resulted in technicians sent almost immediately and the problem quickly resolved. The controls for the room though we're a little confusing (perhaps a sign I'm getting older).
I used the gym daily, my only criticism is the lack of free weights and a barbell, or at least a squat rack. Outside of this the gym was pretty good for a hotel. The pool area was a lovely oasis and the staff very attentive. I used the spa and the treatment was great.
Mostly I want to comment in the Orchid Club on level 16. The staff that work here are of the highest standard. We were never left wanting for anything. By the first night they knew both my partner and I by name, they asked us about our activities and remembered where we were going and asked about it the following day. The hotel should be very proud of the service provided, the quality of the food (breakfast, afternoon tea and supper), this really made for a pleasant surprise to our stay.
We have now found our hotel in Singapore and will gladly return in the future.
