Stayed one night over the weekend in end March 2011 (Qool weekend promotion - all inclusive of 3 meals) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Parking: Is a tight car park at neighbouring Elizabeth hotel, but free parking available upon request at the concierge.
Check in: Very pleasant and painless. Took no more than 5 minutes. Staff brought us up and showed us around the room which was nice. We were given a slip explaining what was included in the package and meal times, and the wifi user ID and password as well.
Lobby area: Small lobby which is linked to the restaurant where the meals are served. Large supply of newspapers and 2 Mac computer terminals for surfing. Lovely landscaping surrounding the lobby and restaurant area which was nice through the floor to high ceiling windows.
Room: Very nice size with lovely bay window on the side with electric black out blinds which the staff member demonstrated to us along with operation of the other items in the room. We liked the layout of the room, i felt that it was very well thought out and every space was well utilised without feeling tight or squeezy. We were even offered cables to link our lap top to the tv so we could watch stuff off our computer, or borrow some dvds from the reception. Bed was very comfortable. The toilet had a "open concept" with clear class at the tub area (which was comfortable). We were of course thrilled with the well stocked fridge (2 each of soya bean, chrysanthenum, green tea packets, diet pepsi and pepsi, sprite and beer) and snacks (2 packs of chips and 1 cup noodle) with coffee and tea. Lots of bottled water. TIP: there is "unlimited" stocks of roughly the same drinks and water in the chiller at the pool side. The room was tiled (save for a carpet under the bed) which we would have preferred to be carpetted throughout as it got cold from the aircon especially at night.
Gym/ Pool: Gym looks very new and state of the art. Nice fluffy towels and water available. At the pool area, the deck was very nice place to chill out with nice sofas and papers and magazines. The chiller is well stocked with ice cold drinks. We did feel the music was a tad loud though. The pool itself is stunning (especially at night) as it is encased by clear glass all around and "hangs out" of the 12th floor of the building. As it is sheltered, the water is very cold! The construction around the hotel was not very noisy but did affect the enjoyment of the pool.
Food: We ate 3 meals which were included. Dinner was nice with mostly pasta choices and some asian fare (About 8 different choices). We liked the soup, salad and free flow ice cream. Lunch was similar to dinner in terms of items but were different. We liked our lunch and dinner meals. Breakfast was something that we felt could be much better. The choices were very limited and food was not appetizing. We especially liked the self serve coffee machines available at all meal times with take away cups available which was a nice touch.
Location: Was about a 8 min walk to Paragon shopping centre which was nice as it was off Orchard Road to be quiet and away from the buzz, but close enough to walk to shop and eat etc.
Summary: Enjoyed our short staycation and had a good break. We felt it was value for money and would consider staying there again. If the pool could be heated it would be perfect.
