The Quay Hotel
Futuristic digs by the river
What we say:
The Quay sticks out among the more ordinary, crumbling hotels and restaurants that occupy old shophouses overlooking the riverside promenade.
With just 16 rooms, it's a small hotel with big panache. Set in the back of the building, standard rooms have a sort of post-modern theme going with abstract paintings, shaggy carpets and space-age furniture. Air-con, TV, mini-fridge, safe, modern bathroom and tadpole-shaped ceiling fan are included, but natural light comes only through white frosty glass panels rather than proper windows.
If you're willing to shell out more cash, the suites are situated at the front of the building and offer real windows, more space and great balconies over the river. If you tire of watching boats drift by, a giant LCD TV comes with a DVD player.
The Quay also offers free WiFi, a ground floor Asian-Mediterranean restaurant and a rooftop bar/restaurant with a perfectly petite plunge pool, perfect for sipping a cocktail with bare feet dangling during the 16:00-20:30 happy hours. Tons of bars, restaurants and attractions surround The Quay -- if you want an ideal location for sightseeing, this is it.
A word of advice: do not pay the walk-in rate we were quoted. Standards often run as low as $40 online.

I didn't actually stay here, but I had an absolutely delicious meal at their very hip, minimalist restaurant. Asian food with a modern fusion twist, beautifully presented. They had a really interesting selection of health drinks, as well.A bit more expensive than most, but totally worth it. Great location opposite the river. The promenade area was under construction in January, but hopefully will be finished by now. I stayed at their sister hotel, the Foreign Correspondent's Club. Gorgeous room at the side of the hotel for $60USD a night, including a scrumptious breakfast. Highly recommended, except for crappy service(couldn't check in until late afternoon and poor communication).
