Fairmont, PanPacific Marina, Carlton, Swissotel Stamford

Fairmont provides a free rollaway bed for under 12 on request and there is day bed in all rooms that works as a bed for a smaller child.

That’s the one in an area above one end of Orchard road. The Hilton on Orchard road is not too far from Orchard MRT station.

We have some forum regulars who stay at the Shangri La, a lovely lady called Ellen from the UK sometimes answers questions on here about it so you could do a forum search for various peoples comments about it. Here are a couple of Ellen’s reviews of her stays-

You can also read a wide cross section of reviews of both hotels, or any hotel by clicking the magnifying glass icon at the top right side of this page, type in a hotel name and that takes you to all its reviews and photos.

Try the new Andaz Hyatt. It's new and very beautiful. Only problem is the small pool, otherwise the view from the rooftop bar is unique.

It depends on your budget, the kind of rooms you are considering and the age of your children (are they below 12?). Shangri La has a nice pool but you will have to walk a bit to get to the MRT station. They do have a shuttle to the MRT station. They have themed Family Suites in the newly renovated Tower Wing but these do not come cheap.

Swissotel (Swissotel The Stamford, Swissotel Merchant Court) have a kids' package where the adjoining kids' room will be decorated according to the kids' age. https://www.swissotel.com/explore/kids-rooms/

If money is not an issue I would recommend Park on Pickering.
