Great Location, Acceptable - Could Improve

Pros: Location and views available.
Cons: Beds are too hard, lifts are painfully slow in peak times.
Location: Convenient location, easy for taxi and Uber pickups. Short walk to Clarke Quay and major shopping centres. Connivence stores within metres.
I visit Singapore about 4 times per year on business and like the central location of this hotel. I feel that my expectations were a tad underdelivered though. It's no doubt that this hotel 15-20 years ago would have been one of the best although I found even the Premiere room quite small/cramped, no real place to put your suitcase, the bed very hard (Although I can deal with that), missing an iron and unfortunately a constant "Damp" smell throughout the room. I also had to move the chair at the desk to be able to view the TV from the bed. That said, good value for what I paid and the view from the bar up top was amazing. I'd recommend for couples traveling on a budget but needing a touch of class. Time for some renovations I think but possibly the owners are already aware of this. Wifi varies from Great to Average about the building but was usable. Breakfast was good, similar to most in Singapore...not a great fruit selection though, needs to inprove. Buffet fresh and hot, egg station to standard. Air-con excellent for those who hate the heat.

Construction going on infront of our window but we asked to be moved and recieved an upgrade. Rooms are comfortable, a little musky, difficult to get rid of with no windows to open. Pool is a nice added benefit.

Non-existent wi-fi, room not clean, views blocked

Pros: great location
Cons: wi-fi, cleanliness
Bathroom not properly cleaned - smelt of urine Wi-fi not working at all during 3-day stay - daily complaints to hotel IT help desk made no difference even after several reboots - "it is working at our end", but it is not working in my hotel room !!" Views blocked by construction next door; incessant noise Great location though !!

A hotel in a good part of Singapore

Pros: It proximity to many of the iconic sites of Singapore
Cons: Bathroom needs renovations.
Location: City Hall MRT, Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Gardens by the Bay, Sentosa, Raffles Hotel, Clarke Quay, Peoples Park Shopping Centre, Chinatown, La Pa Sat.
I have stayed at the hotel previously, about 5 years ago. I stayed in the Excelsior tower this time and although the room was comfortable, some of the fixtures need repair or updating. The bathroom in particular is in need of renovation. Apart from that, the staff were always friendly and helpful and my stay was good. This hotel is near City Hall MRT and has many shops and highlights to visit nearby. St Andrews Cathedral is beautiful landmark. The Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Gardens by the Bay and Sentosa Island are all closeby.

Great views, great location

Pros: Location
Cons: Bathroom design ... needs renovation to stop water running onto floor.
Comfortable stay ... close to transport, shopping, eating places, scenic sites ... Extended our stay from 3 to 6 days ... Intend to return in the future.

Nice hotel, heart of Singapore

The hotel was plesent, breaky was great. I wouldn’t recommend ordering room service the food wasn’t very good. Staff were really friendly and so helpful. The pool wasn’t as great as I thought it would be and the fact it was all glass meant the guests can see you swimming as they check in was a bit uncomfortable. The bed was ROCK hard. I’ve never slept on something so hard.

Good location

Check in staff not helpful or friendly. Customer service is lacking in this hotel. Small rooms but comfortable enough. Nice outdoor pool area but close to construction next door so noisy. Skybar has a lovely view across to Marina Bay. Shopping centre that is part of the complex is run down and only one of the massage centres is legitimate (Urban Spa) with many offering "extras". Disgusting - needs to be addressed by hotel management. I wouldn't want to bring my children as I would be concerned about the seediness of the clientele of this shopping complex.
