We absolutely loved our 6 night stay in a club room at Oasia.
Our room was beautifully furnished, the view was really nice, and the electric shutters were impressive. However, it was a bit smaller than we expected especially for an upgraded room, and with the baby cot provided by the hotel and extra baby luggage, there was not much room to manoeuvre. There was ample storage though, so once we put everything away properly and not live out of our suitcase like we usually do on the road, the room was quite workable. We enjoyed the rainwater shower (which may or may not be a club perk) and the bath was handy with a baby, but there seemed to be quirks with the TV/AC where we couldn't work out how to adjust the volume/temperature - but that may just have been us, and we never bothered to ask! :-) Wifi was free and reliable throughout the hotel everywhere I tried except outside in the pool area.
The club benefits and facilities were fantastic. We had a unlimited minibar and 2 laundry items per day, which was much appreciated travelling with a baby. The club lounge with complimentary cocktails each evening was lovely, as was the private club level pool and jacuzzi and so we actually made it a point to stay, relax on the club level and go for a swim instead of going sightseeing. Breakfast in the club restaurant was really good ... although some items can get a little stale compared to the main restaurant where there is higher turnover (we tried both), the atmosphere, added perks and service of the club breakfast kept us coming back for a more relaxed start to the day.
The hotel location was very good. It's not in the tourist district, but rather in more of an upper residential neighbourhood with 2 shopping centres with lots of cheap food options across the road as well as other malls within a short walk. Oasia has a subway (MRT) connection in its basement level, making it incredibly easy to get around Singapore. It can be as short as a half hour / $20 taxi ride to the airport.
The service was impeccable, especially on the club level. The entire staff made our stay with a baby really easy and enjoyable, with a special shout out to Sam, one of the club level managers for his fantastic guide to Singapore also general hospitality, and George, our primary housekeeper who would be at our door in seconds as soon as we rang and would go out his way to help us with late laundry requests. The baggage attendants were all really friendly and also went out of their way to help us once they saw we had a baby.
Overall, Oasia would be one of the first places we would look at staying on our next trip to Singapore, and now that we've been spoilt by the club room and service in general we would find it hard to go elsewhere!
