"Right up there with the best"
Stayed in the MO for 4 nights . The staff are amazing and everyone is uniformly helpful. i think the training must reinforce this as I have stayed at the Las Vegas MO and it was similarly good. The room is not big but the bathroom has a proper shower (not in the bath) which I think is wonderful. We were given an upgrade to the Marina Bay view and this was great as the view is amazing and you can watch the light show put on in the Marina Bay Sands, minus the crowds. Shopping is easy if that is what you want to do , as there are at least 200 boutiques and shops at the Marina bay Sands, and more right next door. we did notice that the goods are not cheap and the shops are pretty empty. However, you are not far from anything. if you want to eat cheap local fare, there is a street market right opposite and some very high end restaurants close by and in fact in the hotel as well. Everything in the room is as you would expect in a hotel of this quality , so let me tell you about the breakfast. It is outstanding. Everything you can imagine, western or oriental, is on offer. The pool area is very pleasant again with nice views, and it is very easy to meet your visitors in the lobby as there is a comfortable place to sit. The concierge gave us good advice and helped us with some sightseeing. The spa is well worth a visit. Again the service is outstanding if you are looking for some real pampering. Mandarin Oriental sets a very high standard. If you work for a big firm get them to negotiate a good rate. Our friends paid a bit over half what we paid. It is not cheap but it was a great experience.
Excellent service, wonderful pool. Perfect for a leisure or business trip. Everyone couldn't be nicer or more helpful. This was part business, part leisure trip and we had weird requirements about splitting the bill, also had to get back to the hotel and change before our late departure -- all this was handled expertly and cheerfully.
A beautiful hotel in a great location close to the Marina. Our room was on the 10th floor with amazing views of the Bay and the Marina Sands hotel. The beds and pillows were extremely comfortable and all the staff very helpful.
"Incredible Stay in Singapore - a can't miss"
We had only one night in Singapore, but I am glad we chose to spend it at The Mandarin Oriental. It is a spectacular hotel in a perfect location with awe-inspiring views of the city bay. The rooms were perfect - even nicer than we expected. The service was fantastic. Do not miss the chance to dine at Melt - while a buffet, the selection is truly out of this world - as is the service.
"Expensive but worth it"
So, it's the Mandarin Oriental and so you are not going to be picking up any budget deals here (although if you do, it's definitely worth it). Everything is pricey but you cannot fault the rooms, the ambience and especially the service. The breakfast buffet is great, the bar service is superb and the rooms and perfect. Only gripe is having to pay for the WiFi. At close to $300 a night I would expect WiFi to be included!
