I'll be at Singapore at the end of Feb. 2010 for a conference to be held at Quality Hotel. After searching out this hotel in the internet, I am a little surprised how basic this hotel looks (or am I seriously mistaken?).
This conference is organized by the same people who love holding their conferences at plush hotels (hotels too expensive for me, so I end up staying in other hotels).
Anyway, I am thinking of staying instead at Grand Park City Hall Hotel as I would also be bringing my family over for some sightseeing and shopping. I am planning to commute to Quality Hotel for the conference.
My question is: is traveling by taxi from Grand Park City Hall to Quality Hotel inconvenient (such as too far, too expensive, massive jams)? If yes, can you suggest other nearby 4-5 star hotels to Quality Hotel?
Thank you so much for any pointers.
