Really Grate and Luxury hotel
Fantastic pool! I Really Enjoyed lounging around the pool and ordered some drinks. Many tourists tend to just lounge around the pool too, especially with the hot and humid weather! Wonderful location. The hotel is connected to the Raffles Shopping Center and the metro station! Of course, it's a good 10 minute walk through the Raffles' center
One of the best... they say
The hotel has a great ambiance and atmosphere.
The rooms are good and the facilities reflect the 5 Star grade the hotel prides itself in.
the view from the room was also excellent.
However, I was disappointed with the service from the staff. There were not as pleasant or courteous as what I would have expected.
Unique Quality: The atrium inside the hotel. You could actually hear birds chirping.
Great Location, Fabulous Breakfasts
The staff was friendly. We arrived late at night, past midnight but the porter helped us right away and delivered our baggage to our rooms within 2 minutes of us going in.
Good decoration in the room. Nice King size bed that's very comfy!!
We took a vacation package (no tours) so it included the hotel breakfast. It was wonderful, included both Asian and American dishes such as "Cow Hoon" = stir fried noodles (Hokkien style), "Jook" = warm rice porridge (Cantonese style), BBQ pork bows, eggs, sausages, waffles, Mmmmm yummy.
Unique Quality: Fantastic pool! We spent one afternoon just lounging around the pool and ordered some tropical drinks. Many tourists tend to just lounge around the pool too, especially with the hot and humid weather!
Wonderful location. It's about 30 minutes away from the Changi airport but the hotel is connected to the Raffles Shopping Center and the metro station! Of course, its a good 10 minute walk through the Raffles' center.
Directions: Right by the Raffles Center and metro station. Great location.
Wake up to Bird Song
Spacious, well appointed rooms & bathrooms. A comfortable king-size bed.
This is a rather old hotel, but it has been well maintained on the inside and outside. At the centre of the hotel, there is a high ceiling and glass skylight that lets the sunlight in. The natural light creates a warm glow throughout the lobby area and along the passageways leading to your room.
The fitness centre is well equiped and well maintained, and the indoor jacuzzi tub is in good working order. If you get a chance, do visit the fitness centre.
The outdoor pool is rectangular and quite nice. From the pool, you have a view of the surrounding Marina Mandarin area, all the way to Raffles City and Suntec City.
The lobby lounge is a popular meeting place for the locals and visiting businessmen. A favourite here is ice-cream served in a long glass, with a drink of cafe latte, or a colourful cocktail.
Unique Quality: On Sundays, awaken to bird song! Yes, imagine the thrill, you wake up on a Sunday morning and you may imagine that you have been transported to a rainforest... What's going on, you ask yourself. Open your room door, take a look at the corridor and you will spot the bird cages that have been cleverly hung up on every corner. The songbirds call and sing to one another creating a pleasant and delightful wake-up call.
Location: Next door to Marina shopping mall (Metro, NTUC supermarket) and within walking distance (thru the underground walkway which is a shopping haven by itself!) to Raffles City (Sogo) and the Chjimes nightspots. You can also take an MRT or taxi to Orchard Road (Below S$10) from here.
Tips for Supermums: If you get the chance, walk through the underground walkway to Raffles City and take a look at the ladies accessories & casual wear that are on sale here. You could also pick up some delicious bread at Bread Talk for the kids.
