I was previously staying at the Mandarin Orchard Rd and wanted to change both location and ambiance on a business trip that was extended from 4 to 7 days. And a fine choice it was. While this hotel - or at least my suite room - seemed to be more geared to couples (the outdoor Jacuzzi and candles, the room's various mood lighting choices, the "shower chair," etc), the hotel worked fine for me for business. The location is an easy walk to Neils Road, is not far from the Central Business District, and taxis were not difficult to find. Just carry a hotel business card when going out as not one taxi knew the hotel. The front desk folks were very helpful, and there was never a wait. The rooftop bar has a hip vibe to it from the moment you enter the industrial/service graffiti filled elevator. My only regret was that my wife was not there with me as she would have loved the outdoor Jacuzzi. Negatives? Bathroom area could use better lighting. Overall, a very nice place.
