Stayed here for 6 nights on business at request of our corporate staff. This hotel is conveniently located to Changi airport with shuttle service available, but not in the central tourist district. Note that the nearest MRT station also requires a bus ride, so we typically used taxis - not very frugal, but approx. $11-14 for a trip to the central tourist areas, i.e. Clarke Quay, Raffles Place, Orchard Row. It is actually walking distance to East Coast Park, which has walking trails and the East Coast Seafood Centre, a collection of restaurants. Jumbo's is one of the must visit places, excellent Chili and Pepper Crab, keep in mind this is very busy at night with business groups. Immediately across the street is the Parkway shopping center, large mall with adjacent Hawker Center. The mall has a branch of the famous Taiwanese restaurant Ding Tai Fung, world famous (and absolutely delicious) steamed dumplings.
Lots of restaurants in Katong area immediately behind the hotel, including a branch of Tian Tian on Joo Chiat Rd, only a couple of blocks from hoptel, for chicken rice.
Better than average fitness facilities, which include showers, and the pool area is nice as well.
Staff was always helpful and friendly, concierge and doorman very helpful in arranging transportation and sightseeing advice.
Overall, a very adequate hotel with all the services to meet any business or leisure travel needs, just nothing elaborate. I would definitely recommend as long as you can manage a reasonable rate (which in Singapore is still quite high).
