This was our first stay at a Shangri-la hotel and we were very impressed. Upon check-in we decided to upgrade to the Horizon club which in our case turned out to be very worthwhile.
There were two things about our room which impressed and I hadn't experienced before. On either side of the superwide king size bed, in addtion to the usual night tables and table lamps, there were wall mounted reading lamps on flexible stalks which allowed one to read comfortably in bed in any position. Also, while most of the bathroom floor had slick marble tiles, there was an approximately four foot by four foot square of mosiac tiles by the bath and sink; the mosaic tiles were much more slip-resistant than the marble tiles and greatly appreciated.
Also, it was nice that the bathroom amenities included toothbrush, razor, and even laundry detergent for washing clothing in the sink--necessary since Singapore is so hot and humid.
The Horizon club serves a lovely breakfast buffet, and so many high quality snacks for lunch and happy hour that if you want to you can eat three meals a day there for the Horizon upgrade. The staff in the Horizon Club were very attentive and friendly.
Altho the horizon club is on the top floor, the views are not great.
Internet is about 25 Singapore dollars per day if you use the wired internet in your room or free in the Horizon club which is open 7-24.
The location is quiet. If you plan on visiting museums or the financial district you might prefer to stay on the gentrified river, altho the Singapore river is not a large river and has no commercial traffic. However, cabs in Singapore are very cheap for a first world city.
The pool is remarkable for being so large. It is a great place for serious lap swimming as well a pleasant place for sunbathing.
This hotel tries hard and successfully to get everything right.
