Mandarin Oriental, Singapore Review

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.

    Awesome at the Oriental

    We stayed at the Oriental for 3 nights in early January in one of their city suites which have separate living and sleeping areas. The service was second to none. Our 2 year old daughter was treated like a little princess everywhere we went in the hotel. The suite was comfortable and had every amenity you could want. The buffet breakfast at the Melt restaurant was amazing with local as well as western goodies. There is a mall attached to the hotel which is handy and the location by the marina is very pretty. We'll definitely be back.

    Good but there are better

    I travel to Singapore a lot. My suite was small and poorly equipped compared to comparably priced rooms at the Ritz-Carlton, Raffles Plaza, Regent and Raffles hotels. Bathroom, room service food and furniture were all less good than competitors. Service was truly excellent, but it is in all these hotels. I will not come again.

    Good, but good enough?

    The service was excellent. Every employee was incredible helpful and kind. However, compared to other hotels in SG and other hotels of the chain, the rooms are a bit small and the funriture looks slightly cheap (However, bathrooms are fabulous). Out of my room I had a great view to the harbour and a lot of construction sites which probably was bad luck.

    Worth the Difference

    I have stayed at Mandarin Oriental Singapore many time over the past 20 years. I have also stayed at several other hotels in that city. Mandarin Oriental is now my hotel of choice in Singapore, mostly due to their amazing commitment to guest service and the unbelievable breakfast at Melt-The World Cafe. While things are not always perfect, management strives to make things right for its guests. After so many flights arriving in early morning, I finally got them to check me in early when possible. Last time, when they could not, they offered me a free breakfast! Rooms are spacious and well appointed. The location is great and the only real negative is that they charge for WIFI access.
