This hotel is in the airport and if you have a short layover this is the place to stay.
The hotel staff was friendly and helpful at check in and everyone spoke fluent English. The room rates were what I think is average (expensive) for Singapore in general. The room air conditioning worked very well and I was able to get my room as cold as I wanted.
There was a clothes iron and ironing board, a tea/coffee set and hot water pot, and a small safe in the room. This is something very nice that I think all hotels should offer. There was also hard wire and wireless Internet in the rooms – although in my room the wireless signal was not very strong. Overall the room was comfortable and clean. The bed mattress was firm. There were strategically placed full length mirrors in the room and bathroom which made the room look bigger than it was – which is already fairly large. I’m a bathroom snob and this is where some hotels loose me. However this hotel’s bathroom was fairly large, clean, and had a walk in shower (big enough for two), which I love. There was also a standalone bath tub.
There were a couple of complimentary bottles of water in my room as well as a fresh bowl of fruit. I am not sure if this is for all guests, or if it was because I am a Priority Club Platinum level member. Speaking of Priority Club Platinum level membership benefits, there was no room upgrade available due to the hotel being booked full. However I did ask about free internet access and was told that there would be no charge, otherwise there is a 29 SGD daily fee.
The restaurant in the hotel offered a very nice breakfast buffet. All the food was fresh and delicious. There was a bit of everything, American / European and traditional Chinese / Malay style foods. I think even a picky eater will find something they would love here. I give the quality of the food a solid excellent. The fresh fruit was exceptionally good. And I thought the glutinous rice (sticky rice) with chicken was as good as any I have ever eaten. On a side note, I like coffee and for some reason the coffee with my breakfast did not taste as good as I thought it should have, it was really bitter. Overall the restaurant’s food quality is excellent and I would eat there any day.
The outside swimming pool was as large or larger than any airport hotel I have ever seen. It was really nice and not your traditional rectangle. It had small “islands” with trees in it inside the pool for some great shade in the summer. There were also numerous chaise lounges around the outside of the pool so it’s very easy to sunbath and just relax.
