The hotel is in a great location in the colonial district kitty corner to Raffles Hotel, walking distance to Singapore Flyer, subway, Hop On Hop Off Bus, countless shopping centres and restaurants, the river and boat quay, Marina Bay Sands Hotel and much more. There was a fair bit of traffic noise as our room overlooked the front road...mainly seemed like background type noise and didn't disturb our sleep. Somewhat odd room. The hotel rooms are on the third floor, upper level of the club. Not sure if they were converted from something else. There was a step up into our room from the main hallway and then a few steps down into the bedroom as only the closet and bathroom are on the level with the door. Bathroom is clean and modern but sort of strange.The bathroom is like a large shower stall as it is fully frosted glass including the wall into the bedroom and the door to the bathroom is like a shower door...the actual shower doesn't have a door. I did discover that there is a roll blind to pull down on the glass wall that separates the shower and bedroom...otherwise the person in the shower would be visible to the bedroom and the light from the bathroom would shine through into the bedroom. All the lighting in the bedroom is dim and it took us a while to figure out what switches controlled the various lights including the ones showing through the ornamental slots in the closet doors. Room served the purposes for the two nights as we were hardly in the hotel. Had coffee and tea supplies in the room and had an average buffet breakfast included in our price. Free wifi was good in our room which was just down the hall from reception. We didn't use the club pool or gym features as we were too busy sightseeing. There are also interesting dress code requirements for this hotel and club, for example for both men and women there are no shorts, no sleeveless shirts or shirts without collars, no shirts with writing, no torn clothing, no sweaty clothing. Reception staff and front door security staff were pleasant and helpful.
