After three weeks holiday in Europe, time to head home to Australia and face reality again (frowny face), so why not have a stop over in Singapore and enjoy the humidity before heading into Australian winter. Although not a frequent visitor to Singapore, we have stayed before in Orchard Road (Hilton) and Clark Quay (somewhere equally as large hotel but can't remember its name). When at Clark Quay really enjoyed walking around Fort Canning. Didn't realise there was a hotel there until looking for accom this time. Read all about it and the proximity yet staying in parkland sounding interesting. So glad we booked and stayed there three nights. Loved the gentrification of all buildings and the conversion from barracks into lovely sized rooms with exceptional bathrooms meant a really enjoyable stay. Two pools were delightful (one a lap pool) and there was a gym (but I didn't check that out as the parklands were there to enjoy). Walkable distance to Chinatown (which I love) and easy walking to the MRT station (although via a carpark) but easy all the same. But the lovely touch to this hotel, was complimentary drinks and canapes around 5-7pm. Delightful. This hotel also had a buffet breakfast included, which was quite rare when I was looking for accommodation. Would definately stay there again and have recommended it already to others.

Don't get me wrong, this is a very good hotel. The rooms are super comfortable and have everything you might need. Its a high-tech ambience, with touch controls for the mood-lighting, curtains, TV, Internet, air-con, etc. I would definitely ask for one of the rooms overlooking the back of the hotel - there can be festivals and events held in the Park opposite which can make it a bit noisy through to midnight. But, being Singapore, its all well controlled and managed so it doesn't cause untoward disturbance.
Breakfast is taken in the restaurant and is buffet style - it can feel busy and crowded - so not always somewhere for a relaxing start to the day. We also eat an evening meal there one night. All OK but the menu is perhaps a bit limited and nothing very special - Singapore has so much more to offer. There is also a Bar and an Italian restaurant in the main hotel building which looks very classy.
We were not impressed with the pool - space for sitting and relaxing was limited and there were very few places to actually sit - only a handful of sun-loungers. Also it was not that pleasant a view from the terrace.
Generally, I felt a bit disappointed, mainly because as a boutique hotel Fort Canning seems to lack character. There are so many really excellent hotels in Singapore to choose from, though I'm sure the Fort Canning will secure its own regular set of followers. For us, however, we shall try somewhere different next time.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room overlooking the park at the rear of the hotel (the other side to the main entrance).

I have stayed in over 10 luxury hotels in Singapore - but this one is my favorite. I stayed here for 2 weeks. The rooms are spacious, the bathrooms are beautiful - the bathtub is huge and the view is incredible. The hotel is within the fort canning park and if you are lucky, you can get a room facing the park (as opposed to facing the YWCA). The working table is comfortably large to accomodate everything and the lounge chair in the room is not just a piece of furniture to adorn the room.
The staff is also very friendly. The Italian restuarant serves some deliccccshhh dishes and the best part is that they can cook and season it as per your request.
The only thing that I can hold against the hotel is the taxi service. Since the hotel is not in the hub-a-bub (which is exactly what I like about the hotel), it can take several minutes for a taxi to show up at the door step to take you to work - so plan your morning accordingly.
The evening walks are a pleasure, as you the park is right outside and the swimming pool is not overcrowded.
It's just about a 5 min walk, through the park to the orchard road or a 10 min walk to the clarke quay, (again through the park). You just have to know the park routes well enough, I guess.
Like I said, this is my fav hotel in Singapore. If I have to pay from my own pocket to go to Singapore, I would choose this hotel.
