Like other reviewers, the staff do make the place stand out. Very helpful, efficient and pleasant to deal with.
We stayed in a superior room for 3 nights, and found that the room, whilst comfortable had a couple of things which might be improved - our first night was disturbed as we had excessive noise coming from the room next door, and at midnight (after a long day of travel) when we had enough, we did phone down and were grateful that someone responded in a timely manner to tone the noise level down. The bathroom was totally lacking in any shelf space to place toiletries, we ended up moving the small table from the room so we had somewhere other than the floor or shower to place things. There are also no towel hooks, so ended up using the coat stand.
The hotel was unfamiliar to many taxi drivers, but showing the map on your room key card normally worked. The tight driveway/pickup area was a bit tricky, however can't be helped due to the property itself.
Just downstairs are a fantastic little strip of local restaurants, and if we had been organised enough to have some SIN cash, would have eaten there on the first night rather than ordered from room service (which was just ok). You must try the steamed bun/dimsum shop!
The location from the Outram MRT is roughly a ten minute walk, we went there the first day as that was where the closest ATM facilities were, but we found we mostly caught cabs and hopped on the shuttle when it happened to be available.
The rooftop bar has a nice intimate feel, a bit quiet being away from all the action at the quays but good for a drink or two at the end of the day.
If I went back to Singapore, I would probably like to try staying somewhere different, but with accommodation generally so expensive, if the rate on offer was good we would stay here again.
