My family of two small boys stayed 5 days at Goodwood Park Hotel (GPH) in Singapore. The criteria I look whenever I'm traveling with my family is Service, Convenience, Comfort and Location.
Service: Service is top notch, starting with checkin staff and Duty Manager, Andrew Yu. When he saw we had small children, he gave us complimentary upgrade, a room with sofa bed and pool view. Even though check in is 2pm, we were able to get our around 10:30. Staff recognizes their guests by name and opens doors. I can tell the staff at GPH is trying to give the same level of service as Four Seasons. Staff gave umbrella just in case it rained.
Convenience: The room is large for Singapore standards, Deluxe Room over 40square meters. Provides all the amenities you would expect from 4-5 star hotels. The pluses are complimentary daily bottles of water and apples. WiFi is complimentary (1MB). There are two pools, one smaller one suited for the kids. The workout facility and location of restaurants and pool are good. The biggest convenience is location to restaurants and shops of Orchard Road (more on Location section). The only complaint is limited channels on TV and they are all standard definition, lacking the kids channels like Disney or Nick. The local call are not free though.
Comfort: The room had comfortable King size bed and bath room with strong water pressure (something you can’t take for granted).
Location: The hotel is located 5mins from Orchard MRT(Singapore’s MRT is one of the easiest and cleanest subway’s in the world) and a block away from Orchard Road. There are thousands of shops and hundreds of restaurants on Orchard Road.
The motif of hotel styled after German architecture so has a colonial feel, although the rooms have been recently upgraded.
