Stayed in the Carlton for 2 weeks on business in January - a few nights in the new executive wing with my wife then the remainder in the old building.
New exec rooms are truly excellent as good a modern 5* accommodation as I've been in.
The 'standard' rooms in the old building are very good value as they are a very big size compared to some other mid-range Singapore hotels in city centre - certainly recommended if you're going to spend a considerable time in them. Don't expect a modern room though, whilst they are tidy and clean these are probably due a refurb.
Staff are all very attentive and the bar has a good happy-hour before you go out of an evening (if you can put up with the appalling live singer who only seems to know songs by Adele).
Location is fantastic - opposite Raffles Hotel (best cocktails are in the courtyard and NOT in the tourist-trap long-bar. The Bavarian bar/restaurant opposite has fantastic beers and food.
Breakfast buffet has a pretty good selection but value-for-money wise I wouldn't bother as there's enough choice locally or in the city for a decent western or local meal.
The in-house fine-dining Chinese restaurant is reknowned for its duck - very good indeed but pricey. Last time I went to go there was shut for a refurb (July 2012) so hopefully even better now.
Would recommend the Carlton for location and value to anyone staying for an extended period.
