I have been staying in Singapore for a few months so I know the city pretty well but I needed a hotel for a couple of days for a special occasion with my partner. I discovered this place one day when I walked by it and I was impressed by the architecture so I decided to book it. I was not disappointed.
The hotel is beautiful - the Christmas decorations were also very cool and different. (i.e. the Christmas tree at the entrance that looked like a Jeff Koons sculpture).
I loved the room because it was spacious and functional and had a lot of light. The bed was also very comfortable. I was impressed with housekeeping - they really paid attention to detail and even neatly folded all our clothes.
The breakfast was also nice with a wide range of selection - not as large as the other large chain hotels in Singapore but more than adequate. I ordered an iced latte extra and was never charged extra.
The highlight of the hotel for me was the terrace with the pool - really cool construction with the pods and the swimming pool.
I had to take a business call while there - there is a business center on the 2nd floor with little cubicles where one can work, if needed.
The location as mentioned is very central - right next to Chinatown. I prefer it to Orchard Road and Marina where it is very touristy.
