There are several hotels with the word "Mandarin" in it in Singapore, there's Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Marina Mandarin, Mandarin Orchard. The first one is run by the Mandarin Oriental Group while the latter two are owned by the Meritus Group. I think the Mandarin Orchard used to be a 5 stars (now 4 stars) run by the Mandarin Oriental Group back in the 1970s, therefore keeping its Chinese name of 文華大酒店, very similar to the real Mandarin Oriental Hotel... I was confused and booked this hotel instead of the real Mandarin Oriental. This hotel is OLD!!! It's not worth the US$ 250 per night rate that I got. It's a 1000+ room hotel that's hustling and bustling in the lobby everyday. If what you want is a 5 star luxury hotel, this is NOT! Don't be confused...
However, this Mandarin Orchard is the one with the famous Hainan Chicken Rice, so you should come by for lunch at Chatterbox during your shopping on Orchard Road.
