At this pyramid-shape Marina Square hotel, the level of service is second to none. Subdued, modern elegance and personal attention are the hallmarks here. Rooms are understated, with soft hues of peach and green, handwoven carpets, and paintings of old Singapore. Of special note are the Italian-marble-tile bathrooms. One-bedroom suites have lovely sitting rooms and separate washrooms. The wide selection of restaurants includes MELT, with a buffet; the American steakhouse
Morton's, which has free sliders during happy hour; and the Axis Bar and Lounge, whose dishes are accompanied by panoramic city views.
