Nice hotel let down by staff

Stayed at this hotel a few times and this visit this weekend was a let down. The staff seem so indifferent - no welcome back or any feeling of belonging or being important to them. Had issue with room service as it was clear they guy on the phone clearly could not be bothered doing his job. Took my 15 minutes to get through to them line constantly engaged. Tried to then speak with management - same story no one picks up the phone there either. On leaving the hotel on check out. No how was your stay,? have a pleasant trip, need a hand or anything with your bags. Just a robot taking the bill. Awful experience this time. I have stayed in over 40 hotels this year of 4 and 5 star and this experience was just the worst. Shame really as this hotel has potential to be nice. The staff do not seem happy at all !

Well appointed hotel, in an ideal situation, near to all public transport facilities, and easy to reach Singapore's main sights.

Mixed feelings

The hotel consists of two towers: one standard, another premium. We stayed at the latter one on executive floor with club lounge benefits. They serve alcoholic drinks and snacks (quite limited selection) between 6-8pm, but it's not really worth it. The only real benefit of the executive room is 3pm checkout if you need it. Breakfast selection in the lounge was very poor, much better in the main restaurant, however it felt like a big canteen. Overall the hotel feels like an airport hotel, no character at all. The swimming pool is tiny and there are only about 15 chaise-longs which is ridiculous keeping in mind the size of the hotel. Location was very good though- next to Raffles city mall, City Hall and Esplanade metro stops.

Pleasant stay

Got a room upgrade which was nice, however, the room although clean, was a bit dusty and had to report it. It was sorted out same day. During the stay, had to ask for more stock on milk as cleaner did not restock. Overall though, there was no major issues and the hotel location was perfect.

Fantastic Stay

This hotel really exceeded expectations on our trip for 3 days/nights in Singapore. The location is great and just opposite Raffles. The staff went out of their way to help and the Concierge in particular, were very professional and the customer service was superb. I can't recommend this hotel enough and will stay there next time we are in Singapore.

Stayed here for a couple of nights in January prior to a cruise. Lovely well appointed hotel, friendly staff, lovely spacious rooms and a great breakfast!! Right next door to Raffles and in walking distance to shops and waterfront. Would recommend to anyone looking for a city hotel in Singapore.

Business trip

The hotel and room was lovely and I had access to the premier club lounge which was good. One disappointing thing in the room was that the hairdryer was pretty dated - I would have expected a better hairdryer than one which took ages to dry my hair and I had to hold in a button when whole time to get it to work!
