The Goodwood Hotel in Singapore?

Jump to last reply

You may remember that last week I was booking a ticket to the Boston GTG. I got a little carried away with some great airfares and ended up having a week in Japan, a week in Boston and NYC, and a few days in Las Vegas to attend a wedding.

Husband has never been to Singapore, so I again got carried away and we're now splitting our time into 3 days Singapore and 3 days Japan .

So, in Singapore, I've been comparing the Fullerton, Fairmont, and Berjaya (formerly the Duxton) Hotels. Today a friend who loves Singapore said I should also consider the Goodwood, on Scotts Rd near Orchard. Their web site looks interesting, but I'm wondering if that location will be really crowded and if the walk to the orchard St MRT will be inconvenient in the heat. This friend always takes taxis and likes designer shops, so I'm not sure I trust his judgement. (I love using public transport and shop for local stuff only). Last year, i stayed at the Orchard St Y...that was a nice location, decent room and priced great, but not exactly a couples hotel!

Any wise advice?

This will be happening the first week of October.
