Most of what UA Mike reported is still accurate. I spent last Wednesday night here. If I had to describe in one word, it would be "small". The smallest room I've been in since...well, since I was in Singapore last at the AMOY. Room 3115 = standard room.

The bathroom walls are on rollers and you have to sort of build it yourself. I didn't like it at all.



There is no Executive Lounge. There is the Urbana Rooftop Bar on the 33rd floor.


You are only entitled to two "house pour beverages". It wasn't clear if that meant two per registered guest or two per room. My wife and I had two Tigers (cans) each and were not charged. The food and "house pour beverage" selection in the Urbana Rooftop Bar were poor.


The Novena MRT can be accessed easily with a couple minutes walk to the Velocity Mall inside Novena Square.
We walked to Balestier Food Centre in about 15 minutes and had some fair chicken satay with some proper large bottles of Tiger.

I would only ever stay here again if I was by myself. The room is way too small for two persons. The mattress is way too soft for my liking. I have stayed in at least a half dozen different hotels in S'pore and this was near the bottom of my list.

I was looking at booking a reward stay here but it seems that Reward Nights here are non-cancellable?
Is this typical?
Marriott Tang, JW Marriott however have 1 day / 2 day pre-arrival terms for Award stays

Marriott Rewards Redemption, non-refundable if cancelled more than 1 day after booking

Cash rates, including both adv pay and not adv pay, are likewise not CXLable after 1-day.
Definitely something wrong here.....

Just wondering any recent report at this hotel? And did I read it correctly that they went from having a lounge to not having a lounge now?

Thanks

Yes, they turned the space that was the lounge into a rooftop bar.

I live down the street from the property so haven't stayed there. But I will note that there is quite a bit of F&B that has opened in first three floors of the building. There is a bagel place, two Thai restaurants and a number of other businesses.

We have eaten at Two Man Bagel and Baan Ying and will return to both.

This blog lists a number of the F&B outlets.
