Stayed for a series of meetings in nearby SGH complex. Hotel booked by the organizers.
First impression is that it is a new boutique hotel with modern design.
Having walked from the nearest train station (Outram Park), I must admit that it did not leave a very good first impression as ramps were not available for me to pull my trolley bag up and had to carry it up the steps. First and last bad experience with the hotel.
Was greeted by Criselda who (very, very) cheerfully assisted me through my quick check in. Found my room ready, cool and waiting in less than 5 minutes after approaching the front desk. Daily variety of free items in the minibar (Coke, Coke Light, Juice and bottled water), high speed internet, continental breakfast, coffee and tea making facilities and a very efficient housekeeping staff. Toiletries were top notch and the rooms were of adequate size (at least 208 where I stayed). Very close to eating areas and the rooftop bar (Halo) had a good variety of drinks and canapés to munch on. One comment on the design of the hotel, though is the strange fact that there are rooms where the shower is walled with a full length glass window overlooking the street. Was crossing and admiring the architecture of the building when I saw that one can actually see people taking a shower in full view of the street! Perhaps some shade or frosting??? I'm glad I was not billeted in THAT room.
While the facilities of the hotel were great, what made the experience fantastic was the staff. From the front desk to Nectar to the bellhops to the Halo staff - they made the experience quite memorable. Kudos to management and staff for running such a tightly run and cheerful ship. I will definitely consider staying here during my trips to Singapore.
