                        The front desk staff wished me when he discovered it was my birthday upon check in and even arranged for a birthday cake to be sent to my room at night. He was also very composed despite my impatience during check in.

                        I like the Zen feel/design of this hotel and there's always a constant refreshing smell whenever I step into the hotel. Some more this hotel is located next to Gurney Plaza which is very convenient for shopping and watching movie. Plus free wireless around the hotel. Worth the money!

                        The Service is good and the staff are freindly. Free usage of minibar and supply of mineral water.

                        Hotel parking lots are open for public. Limited lots.

                        The check-in and check-out service was very nice.

                        The room is quite standard - nothing spectacular. It could also need some fresh paint.

                        Best thing about the hotel is that it is next to Gurney Plaza - a convenient shopping respite with a good retail mix. Also, located conveniently close to the (touristy but decent) Gurney St hawkers and other local restuarants down the other end of Gurney.

                        Check-in service was poor. We were informed that the room was not ready at check-in time and were not told what time to return. When we did return close to an hour and a half later, the room was still not ready. The front desk officer could not communicate what the delay was due to, and constantly disappeared for minutes at a time, which exasperated us even more. They finally upgraded us to a room on the Executive floor. Check-in was definitely not of 5* standard.

                        Only the location. Close to my meeting

                        Stayed one night. If I needed to stay two nights I would have moved out. Very poor hotel, staff could not care less, food was poor and served cold. I would not stay again. Very expensive for what is at best 2 star hotel
