The location rather than the facilities are what makes this hotel popular with repeat travelers. The lobby is large and sparse with Italian marble and glass chandeliers. Dramatic glass elevators run along the outside of the building so you can check out Orchard Road on the way to your room. Though the pastel rooms are neat and trim, efficiency outweighs warmth here. Long Jiang Szechuan restaurant serves Szechuan food from a set menu, and Sushi Nogawa is Japanese-owned.
