Stayed in the main Tower for business and a few days holiday. Price wise this is a premium hotel but you get 5 star luxury and service. Rooms are superb - comfortable, well appointed and with great beds and bath room faculties. The service is outstanding and staff are very friendly - this is service befitting of the Raj in the 19th century with staff outside the hotel entrance ready to take your suitcases, front desk staff just inside the hotel entrance to welcome you and escort you to the desk and sign you in; suitcases effortlessly and efficiently whisked up to the room. I loved the welcoming green tea brought up to the room in a traditional wicker tea pot and the complimentary afternoon tea available in the hotel lobby. I also enjoyed the fresh fruit placed in my room everyday. The bellhops at the elevators in the lobby were helpful and friendly - not everyday one sees bell hops who can call the elevators for you. Breakfasts are 6 stars and cover continental, Asian and traditional English breakfast offerings plus fresh bread and pastries, beautiful fruit juices, fresh fruit and a range of special dishes like quiche - breakfast covers you for an entire and active day. A bed turnover service is provided each night with white carpet mats laid out so one can walk in one's hotel slippers to the bed and ten remove the slippers and not bring any dirt into the bed - having said that the carpets are immaculately clean as is the entire hotel - lovely sound deadening thick pile carpeting in the rooms and walkways. I did not make use of the great facilities in the hotel. The food and beverage pricing is astronomical in the hotel and in minibar costs prohibitive - I was fortunate to attend a conference and did not have to buy meals. I am not a minibar user but prices were ridiculous - of course alcohol is very expensive in Singapore and Singapore s a high cost destination. I loved the pret a porter afternoon tea (English high tea) on the Rose Verandah - high tea in Singapore is a most do for visitors and this is one of the best in Singapore - great service and a strong recommendation. The live entertainment each evening was sensational - a jazz singer called Zoey Jones supported by a jazz pianist and jazz double bass player - sensational entertainment each evening and worth the outlay on drinks. For me I love the centre of Singapore and felt that the hotel was too far out for me but it is a resort so the setting and location is right for a resort hotel - there is a free shuttle each hour to Orchard Rd Ion and from there one can easily access the MRT which is great. I do love the fact that this hotel is less 10 mins from the Botanic Gardens by taxi - $5 cab fare and $15 for a first class English breakfast at the Botanic Gardens s a must do if you are holidaying or staying at the hotel on a weekend. Writing this review now I realise I have fallen in love with this hotel - rarely has this ever happened - I ill return to Shangri-La Singapore one day, hopefully with a partner because it is the kind of hotel you want to be with a lover (singles) or your family (married folk) to share the wonderful experience ....
