We stayed here because they had a "Recession Package" deal. We arrived late in the evening and found the reception flat out.... and the nightclub / dance music also flat out.
Our room was dismal and dirty and worn.... even with the Recession Package deal it was not up to scratch. Fittings were old and surfaces well worn ... the place needs a serious re-fit. We tried the smorgasbord / buffet for breakfast (included in our special package) and it was nice enough but nothing special, I wouldn't recommend it if you have to pay. Also the service wasn't so great either, we had to keep hunting out the wait staff and then they would treat you as if it was an inconvenience.
The location also is not that great. We went out at night and during the day and found the place soul-less and sterile, like a shopping mall but full of bars and restaurants. And they were pricey, ridiculously so. Across the river was another large hotel / shopping mall and the MRT (which is handy) but once again soul-less. You could be in any city in the world. But if that's what you like then this is perfect.
Personally, I prefer the colourful areas of Singapore like Little India, Newton Hawkers Huts, Chinatown and so on, and I will be staying nearer to these next time.
