OK hotel. Base suite is nice. Not too far from shul but the location isn’t in a nice environment.
Shabbos issues?

I don't remember clearly but I believe the toilet is electronic without any manual workaround, so impossible for shabbos.

I don't think I've ever seen a toilet without an outlet. I guess it's hardwired?

35 minute walk according to Google
Workable, but not the most ideal.

We stayed at the new Hilton Garden Inn for only 10k HHonors, I think now it's 20k.  It's in a totally different direction from the other hotels, in Little India, but it was an easy walk and I loved being in the cool neighborhood.  Wasn't fancy but nice and new and perfect for us to get two connecting rooms for super cheap after blowing all my points on the rest of our vacation.  :P

That actually sounds like a good idea. No reason to blow through all my points on a hotel. The basics work for me.

Skip the MBS bar IMO and do the ferris wheel instead

Skip the bar and sweet talk your way into the pool.

I didn't go GBTB, but the botanical gardens were great.
