Hi Maz,

All these hotels you've chosen are not near Orchard where the main shopping scene is. However getting from one place to another in Singapore is really easy and convenient. Besides all these three hotels you've picked are just a stone's throw from each other. There's the Tiong Bahru Market and Food Centre nearby which I think you'l really enjoy - especially its chwee kuey (real famous!). And if you've got more time, you absolutely must check out Maxwell Food Centre. They serve some of the most heavenly local foods here.It's the mecca of our Singapore food scene.

If you really like a place with a nice pool, then opt for either the Holiday Inn Atrium or the Furama Riverfront. Hotel Miramar's been refurbished not too long ago ... havn't seen it since so afraid can't comment much.

Agree with Grumphy. Novote Clarke Quay is definitely worth checking out if it falls within your budget.

Novotel would be a better bet. The hotel is along SG River and at night, there are eateries along the river. Across the river (cross the bridge) is another shopping centre and beside it is Swissotel Merchant Court hotel. Good hotel and then slightly down, Clark Quay MRT. You can easily buy all your necessity in the shop iwthin the hotel building.
