We stayed in a Deluxe Garden Room from 10 - 12 Feb 12. It was a rather average sized for a couple but really tiny for our family as we have two young children (5 year old and 3 year old) with us. The fact that there was a bath tub in the room (right next to the bed) was cool but it actually took up a lot of our precious room space whenever we were not using it. The room came with a very small and pleasant 'garden' that was nice for reading books/newspapers. However, the garden wasn't really private because the other side of the garden was a common walkway for hotel staff/guests.
Location was good, secluded enough so that we don't feel like we're really in Singapore. But yet it's not too far away from civilization in that it only takes us about 10 - 15 min to walk to Plaza Singapura (up/down several flights of stairs though).
The hotel is currently carrying out a trial on in-room movies and until the trial is finished, movies are free for us to watch. The choice wasn't extensive but my boys found what they liked -- Despicable Me, Shrek Forever, and Megamind etc.
The three pools were smallish but I really liked them because they were ultra clean and not crowded at all. There was a lap pool (1.2m), a main pool (between 0.9m and 1.7m) and a tiny round children's pool (0.4m). The main pool and children's pool are just next to each other while the lap pool is a flight of stairs away.
Breakfast at The Glass House wasn't fantastic. The food selection was not extensive (no nutella!), and the restaurant couldn't cope with the high volume of guests on the second day that we ate there. Granted that the occupancy was unusually high that day, but even then, constantly running out of food was rather bleah.
