The Shangri-La is what you would expect for a 5 star Asian hotel - comfortable and clean, everything you need, world-class standard.
Individual positives: fantastic riverside location, right next to the sky-train and market, down the street from the Oriental but with the tranquility of being by the water.
I have stayed here many times and it has excellent conference facilities, a comfortable, spacious pool area and a really brilliant gourmet buffet (both breakfast and dinner) - one of the best in the world which I have been to.
Negatives: Everything is as you need, but being a very large hotel it lacks some of the charm of say, the Anantara, but still has more of a relaxed resort feel than the nearby Peninsular or Hilton high-rises. Great for business people, established couples with a bit of cash and even kids as it's big enough to spread out and not stuffy despite being a high standard.
I remember coming here in 1993 and it was drop-dead luxury - it has since been overtaken by other hotels in those stakes but is still a high standard.
A comfortable and stylish old dame.
