I was at this hotel on 31/12/2010 to 02/01/2011 for New Year's eve.
First impression when I entered this hotel was one word, DULL. You will find unpolished marbled lobby even their woods ornament need to be repolished. This hotel was extremely busy. Had to que few minutes before finally served by a receptionist. And you can easily spot aircrews standing, sitting, and chatting on the lobby. Yup, this is the best nearest hotel to Changi Int'l Airport with complimentary shuttle bus back and forth the Changi.
Being an elite member of A|Club doesn't mean they will give extra service. Just plain but polite. Eventhough I rarely found hotel staff smile at me or any guests. Truly Singaporeans!
The best thing is they have the MOST spacious hotel room and bathroom in Singapore. It is 32 sq metres. So great if you come to Singapore with family and want to leave far from hustle and bustle of city center and Orchard Road. Every room has bath tub, which I never used. But all bathroom equipment such as shower head, faucet, toilet counter were all dull and, once again, need immediate polish. Furnitures in bed room are also dull and look so old. Felt like living in 60s with dark crémé colour everywhere.
About location, well if you walk across the street to Parkway Parade there're two bus stop you can find buses to many places like Orchard, Marina Bay, etc. To reach MRT Station, nearest is Paya Lebar, took a 15-mins bus ride or 30 minutes long walk. When I stayed, the hotel had morning shuttle bus, one way, to Paya Lebar MRT Station until 10am.
