We stayed in the Shangri-la for two nights at Christmas this year. The hotel was undergoing renovations at that time, so only half the rooms were available.
The hotel itself is nice with a highly impressive entrance hall and the most fantastic swimming pool and outside area. The rooms were rather on the smallish side, but top-modern with a lovely view over the city. We had booked club rooms which I can only recommend. The buffet and free drinks in the evening are worth the additional money for the room, especially when one considers how expensive alcohol and going out is in Singapore.
The breakfast buffet in the mornings was huge, sadly though there were so many people and the layout is rather narrow, so quite some navigating was required. The food was of very high quality, with soup-stations, sushi-stations, an Indian section, a Chinese section, a Western section. All you could ever want and more you could ever eat.
The best thing about this hotel, in our eyes, and the biggest hit with our daughter was most definitely the poo. It is huge, has a separate hot-tub and a special are for children. We spent an entire afternoon there instead of sight-seeing.
