We found our room to be quite clean and comfortable with air conditioning that worked particularly well. I loved the strong hot shower and extremely comfortable bed with down comforter. Unfortunately, our room was located next to the elevator and was noisy beginning early morning. Make sure you request a room away from the elevator.
This hotel is located at the end of Orchard Road, and a relatively short walk to the Orchard MRT station and the shopping malls. If you have little luggage you can take the train to and from the airport for just a few S$. A cab will cost about S$25 and take about the same amount of time -- 40 minutes door to door. (The MRT is an unbelievably cheap and convenient way to get around the island and extremely easy to use.)
I have two complaints about this hotel. First, their business center internet charges are S$15 for 30 minutes which is laughably ridiculous considering we found a nearby internet café that charged S$3 per hour. In addition, there a small mini-mall just across the street that is absolutely teaming with hookers overflowing onto the street after dark. I did not expect them in this neighborhood (right next to Valentino no less) and taking an evening walk was like running a gauntlet. For this reason, I would not take kids to this hotel.
