We just spent 5 nights here. The staff were very nice and accommodating. Arrived at 2:20 in the morning and the assistant manager showed us to our room. The room is very nice and modern with a lot of switches which aren't clearly marked. Not a big deal once you learn them. The hotel is not in the City Center but is 100 feet and 2 escalators to the MRT subway system and all attractions are 2-5 stops from this station. The escalators are in a mall which was nice to have next door as well. There's a living room, breakfast area, and rooftop pool just for Club room customers. The breakfast was good with a never ending supply of smoked salmon (my favorite) and the coffee was great.
So pros: Good location. Very nice for the money. Great staff.
The cons: The walls in the rooms are very thin. I don't know how someone can design a beautiful hotel and not put in sound proofing. You can hear the doors in the hall, the motorized window shades from the other rooms and I spent most of one night listening to a high pitch squeal which was the alarm clock from a room 2 doors down.
The hotel was not crowded so the breakfast area was not crowded. They have 88 club rooms and seating for 20-25 for breakfast. if the hotel was full, I could see it being difficult to get breakfast.
The last issue is becoming popular in a lot of hotels. There's a window between the shower and the bedroom with an electric privacy shade. The bathroom door is etched glass. There is no way to turn on the light in the bathroom without lighting up the whole room.
So I really liked this place and recommend it but the sound issue is bigger for me than most and is why I can't give it 5 stars.
