Shangri-La Hotels for 7 night stay with kids

We've got a trip planned for April/May 2023 for 7 nights with 2 kids (will be 5 and 3 at the time). It's the first long trip for the kids so our plans are mostly centered around keeping them happy, comfortable, and entertained. My current plan is to stay at the Shangri-La Singapore for 4 nights in one of their themed rooms, since that would at least be a way to keep them entertained while jet lagged, then spend 3 nights at the Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa in a Family Garden King (which the web site says can accommodate 2 kids on a sofa bed). Accessibility to kid friendly activities like playgrounds and pools at the hotel are pretty important, and we would probably take a car to most places when venturing out of the hotel, except maybe short walks to eat. We'd then do more of the sightseeing on the main island the first few days, then do Universal and maybe some other activities on Sentosa when we're there (and hopefully more adjusted).

Are there any major issues with this itinerary, or any other hotels I should seriously consider? A major hurdle was finding rooms that would fit us all without being extraordinarily expensive (like 2 bedroom suites). Two adjoining rooms would work, but for that price it seemed like the themed Shangri-La rooms would provide more kid friendly amenities both to go with the room and at the hotel in general.

I have not stayed at the Shangri-La Sentosa, but if you haven't already looked into it, try the Four Seasons. It's over in the Orchard area so it's not that central if you wanted to be near the Marina, but we LOVED our stay there. We were also traveling as a family of 4. They provided a rollaway at no extra charge. They also have a family pool on the roof and an adult lap pool on the main level. The "premier" room fits 4 people which is a corner room and not a suite. You can easily walk through the walkways to the Voco hotel and the nearby malls.

Also, if you are heading to Asia from the Americas or Europe, you may need to consider taking a day or two for the kids (and yourself) to adjust to the jet lag before going off on your adventures. It's no fun to run around with tired and sleepy kids.
