I've stayed at the Amara a couple of times due to it's proximity to the central business district - it's a short walk to our local offices in Singapore.
Reception is efficient, and by & large the staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms tends to be small but with everything required in a corporate sort of way, though the bathroom on my last visit was in need of a refit, with unpleasant gurgling from a drain every time someone in a neighbouring room used their bathroom - which was quite disturbing in the night. On my last visit I also had the misfortune of having a room by the lift shaft and ventilation shaft - the noise was extremely annoying at night, and I couldn't be relocated as the hotel was full. Take ear plugs!
The breakfast room is also chaotic when the hotel is full - there simply isn't enough space to fit everyone in, despite it having a good selection of food to choose from. Stand up to go to the buffet and you can come back to find your seat taken!
One good aspect to the hotel in the pool area, several floors up. It may be overlooked by nieghbouring blocks of flats, but it has enough atmosphere of it's own to really unwind in at the end of the working day.
There are some excellent restaurants within the hotel, though these are expensive, but offer plenty of choice.
