Does anyone have any experiences of these places or any advice ? I was keen on the Marina bay ( 6 marina blvd) because it is 5 min to Raffles MRT) and so I may be well connected. it is also 5 min to the merlion park and that might be good with a 4 year old in tow. The Shangrila apt on the other hand while not near an mart have a shuttle to the city and perhaps may let us use the hotel facility.
I just want to avoid construction and worry that marina blvd place might have a lot of that.
Fraser Place at Robertson Quay is right by the river. Clark Quay MRT is just a short stroll away. Plus you have a Cold Storage under your nose at UE Square and a Meidi-Ya supermarket (only one in Singapore) at nearby Liang Court.
