While the hotel is not new, it is well maintained with constant upgrading. In fact there was some construction on this two day visit but it was invisible and noisiless. We did not know much about Singapore so selected this hotel due to the ratings, price and location. They currently have a special price for the room with breakfast included. To purchase the breakfast separately it is over US$30. The buffet breakfast is fantastic. You can choose from American, Chinese or Indian cuisine. We ate around 9:30 am each morning and were happy to skip lunch.
We were in Singapore for a two day post-cruise visit. We were delighted to be given our room upon arrival about 9 am. The staff are well trained and treat you in a similar fashion to cruise staff. We had an incident where the cabbie short changed me on our ride from the ship and the staff intervened and filed a report on my behalf. I must add that this treatment is not the norm. We used cabs constantly and everyone was honest. Be prepared to pay a meter premium during rush hour and in the evening. Cabs to the quays were from US$8 to US$10.
Our room was large, comfortable and clean. We were located at the back away from Scotts Street so the room was quiet with no view. If you enjoy a firm pillow, a firm mattress and a duvet, you will have an enjoyable sleep. I like none of these and this would be my only complaint. I find duvets much too not so the only alternative is to rip the cover off and use it as a sheet.
The location is both positive and negative. You are in the heart of the shopping distict at Scotts and Orchard Road. Unfortunately it is all very high end and over the top expensive by our standards. Also it is wall-to-wall people particularly young people. They socialize in this area so it becomes very crowded. If you love to find bargains. this is not the place for you. Other areas such as Chinatown, Little India or Arab Street have little to offer with store after store selling the same stuff. If we were returning I would be inclined to stay in the Marina Bay area where most of the tourist attractions are located. However expect to pay more.
On the positive side, we found an excellent mini mart in the basement of Scott Square next door. We bought wine, cold meat and cheese, then bought a loaf of French Bread at the bakery beside the mini mart and enjoyed an in-suite meal after a long day of sightseeing. Another option is to try some true Singapore cuisine in the basement of Tangs at the corner of Orchard and Scotts Rd. They have several cooking stations all prepared in front of you. All at a reasonable price (not the suckling pig). It is patronized by locals.
When travelling, always allow extra time for traffic.
