When we made the reservation, we thought, based on the photos and descriptions, that we were going to be staying at an older, historic hotel in the midst of all the chaos on Orchard Road. Upon arrival, the first thing you see is the historic façade and the hotel grounds which are lovely and surrounded by trees, lawn and gardens so it is removed from the busy Orchard Road corridor, a couple of blocks away. We drove up and flew right past the historic looking façade that is in the brochures and pulled up to a modern glass entry to reception. Nice, but not what we expected!
We had requested a king in the reservation but reception indicated that they did not have any....it was 1pm and after checkout so we were a bit surprised. We had also made the reservation 8 months prior to arriving. They offered us two beds and thinking it would be 2 queens or fullsize beds, we accepted the offer. We got to the room and it was two twins! So, back to reception and 20 minutes later we had a king. The room was very small but did have a little balcony that overlooked the pool. It had a small refrigerator but it didn't work. We had maintenance up twice and they could not get it to work.
Overall, it was a comfortable room and the bath was well appointed but nothing special for close to $200 per night.
We chose not to eat breakfast at the hotel and wandered down the street. We usually don't eat at the hotels and prefer to check out the local eateries. The breakfast buffet was $35 per person which seems a bit steep for eggs, bacon and toast! There are ample restaurants within a 10 minute walk as well as the ION Mall on the corner of Scotts Rd. and Orchard. The selection is overwhelming!
We did not really use any of the services offered at the hotel so I can't comment on them. The pools seemed to be very nice and well attended to and the WIFI in the rooms worked well. There was little on the TV to watch expect for your typical CNN International.
