Could not decide where to stay on this visit to Singapore with my sister and ended up choosing Pan Pacific in a club room. Found previous reviews not very detailed as to the club room so here are the details. Rooms are on high floors and the only way to get to them is in a glass lift which runs up the outside of the building. If you do not like heights this is not for you although the views are stunning. The room itself on 33rd floor is much smaller than I expected - the club rooms at the Ritz Carlton are definately much more spacious. The room itself was quite nice but did not have any wow factor as I was expecting after the big refurbishment more functional and possibly aimed at the business traveller. The furnishings are pleasant enough. We do not have a balcony so not sure if that is a different room category. All the info about the room and services is on the tv which I do not particulary like as I think there is no substitute for a book with all the info at you fingertips. Also in my experience all the hotels I have stayed at in Singapore are not particularly good at telling you what is included in your club room eg still need to ask is it 2 pieces of laundry per day foc or just 2 pieces of pressing? Free wifi in room which is as it should be! Bathroom nice and as it is a twin room we do not have the glass wall so private enough. Bathroom at the Ritz was far superior as it has bath in front of window and you can see the amazing view while in the tub. In fact the rooms at the Ritz are just fabulous and you cant help being wowed even on a second visit. The club itself is lovely with amazing 360 views which are particularly spectacular at night. The club is open 24 hours a day which is nice if you have jet lag! The service is excellent and could not fault it at either hotel. The food and beverages served complimentary in the club are as follows...... Champagne breakfast or alternatively you can go to restaurant downstairs for more choice at breakfast. The all day refreshments are soft drinks, tea and coffee and biscuits served 24 hours. Then there is afternoon tea served from 2.30 pm til 5.30pm then cocktails and canapies which is basically any alcoholic drinks including champagne served from 6pm til 8pm. The afternoon tea today consisted of scones with jam and cream, sausage rolls, and an open sandwich type snack. They also had a cheese board with crackers and smoked salmon. Along side that there was a sweet offering of a little chocolate cake or mini raspberry tart. The selection was adequate but not terribly inspiring however I will say that there are very few guests in the club room as it is the weekend so it may be that there is more choice on week days and it all tasted very nice. The canapies at 6pm consisted of cheese board, crackers, smoked salmon, samosas, and 2 other dainty little canapé things that were very tasty. There was also 4 sweet canapés which again were all very tasty. By comparison the Ritz serves food and drinks all day long from 7.30am right through to 11pm so knock yourself out on champagne all day! Their food is outstanding to the point for example the afternoon tea is on par with what would be served in the lobby to guests paying for it. The only problem with the Ritz is you find yourself rushing back for the food! My main reason for choosing the Pan Pacific in stead of the Ritz was cost. Seven nights in Pan Pacific is costing £1900 where as the Ritz was £2200 so £300 more and these were the best deals I could get. I also looked at Conrad Centenniel which quoted £1500 but they took over a week to get back to me so I had already booked. I suppose to sum up it is not that the Pan Pacific is not great it is just I think it is overpriced for what it offers or perhaps it is just not offering deals on rates that the other hotels do. Or maybe I was just getting a very good deal on the price at the Ritz!!!
