A new name and a multimillion-dollar renovation have turned this once drab address into the talk of the town. Staffers keep the 527 earth-hued guest rooms utterly spotless and seamlessly handle all requests with unobtrusive friendliness. The design places a premium on comfort and function, with pillow-top beds, roomy closets, a sizable work station, and ergonomic desk chairs. Book a suite facing Marina Bay for views of the Singapore Flyer and the Merlion, a sculpture of the country's whimsical mascot. If funds allow, opt for a room on floors 18 to 21, which confer access to the Oriental Club Lounge, a top-floor spread with private meeting space, panoramic harbor views, and complimentary cocktail hours. On-site, you'll find a small but serene spa with the massages, couples treatments, and facials for which Mandarin Oriental is known, as well as a sprawling pool so lush it feels more tropical resort than urban high-rise. Dining options include everything from dim sum and sushi to hearty Morton's steaks for the homesick.

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
This waterfront tower across the road from the Esplanade Theatres on the Bay has a fan-shaped atrium, Chinese artifacts, and "the nicest staff." Lively rooms with granite and timber bathrooms have red pillows, neutral shades, and, in some, "spellbinding views of the water." At the Cherry Garden, Cantonese specialties are the norm.
