I usually stay in the Orchard or Marina areas, but decided to give the Hotel Vagabond a try. It's a smaller, boutique hotel with a lot of character affiliated with Starwood/Marriott. It's located between Little India and Kampong Glam and easily walkable to Raffles, Marina, and other areas.
My room was smaller than other hotels I've stayed at in Singapore, but very comfortable and had everything I needed. The room came with a complimentary mobile phone which is fantastic for those of us with US phones. It came with internet access, maps, and allows you to call several countries including the US for free.
There is a nice lounge and restaurant area in the lobby. I suspect once locals find out about the hotel, the lounge area will be quite popular. A fitness center is being added. For those who enjoy swimming, there is no pool. Service is friendly, helpful, and professional. Would definitely consider returning!
