Great location, amenities & all. I've stayed here at least thrice now, and was upgraded on my 1st stay. I've had good reviews of the hotel until my last stay earlier this month. I had left on my room table, a stack of coins (Singapore currency), amounting to about S$3, to free up space in my coin pouch for local coins. It is a recent habit of mine whenever i travel & had no issues when i did this at other hotels. When i returned to my room at the end of the day, the stack of coins where missing. During lunch, i came up to my room (before housekeeping did) & the coins were still there. They were gone after that. I promptly reported this to the front desk personnel and they said that they will look into it. The next day noone got back to me & i enquired again personally at the counter. The Asst. Manager spoke to me & said that he had asked the housekeeping staff & they denied seeing the stack of coins nor did they take it. He offered to compensate me but giving me a G Hotel card holder worth RM$30 (he emphasized the value of the card holder). I turned down the offer & said that i just wanted to provide feedback to the hotel about the incident (& about the dishonest housekeeping staff!!) & not to solicit compensation. Anyway i said that it was just a couple of dollars worth of coins & it didnt really matter much to me. Just wanted to warn other travelers not to leave any attractive small, personal items in the room in case they get nicked too!
