My partner and I spent the night here shortly before Christmas. Close by the steely veneer of hyper-modern downtown Singapore is this gem of a hotel. I suspect that this is the closest Singapore downtown can get to a bit of real history in combination with its legendary efficiency and slickness. Although owned by a giant corporation, one gets the sense that this relatively small hotel is intentionally staffed by people with a heart for hospitatlity. At least three times in our less-than-24 hour stay, staff came by to talk with earnestness and excellent information about our life and goals for our stay. One gave us an excellent 30-minute tour of the historic temple that is integrated into the fabric and design of the hotel itself, while another went home to her mother to get information from her mother about the best nature walks in the city. Both spoke personally about how this hotel is different in its approach toward hospitality. It is true that some aspects of the hotel (which just opened 7 weeks before our arrival) are not completed construction-wise, and as a result, for instance, the continental breakfast--while good--was a bit improvised. We left feeling that these minor difficulties would almost certainly be fixed soon. The room itself had a fascinating combination of attention to the historic quality of the setting and the hyper-modern ethos of downtown Singapore. It was slightly on the small side, but exquisite in its beauty and efficiency. The best shower we've ever taken under a roof!
