This hotel is a good value compared to similar hotels, such as the nearby Carlton. All rooms have a Chinese touch (rosewood furniture, for one) and such extras as coffee- and tea makers and IDD phones. Rooms on the Excellence Floor are more expensive but more spacious. This hotel has a central location: it's near Raffles City Tower, Marina Square, the historic colonial district, Little India, Bugis Street, the Arab District, and it's only a 10-minute subway or bus ride
to Orchard Road.
