I was surprised that the Fairmont has rooms called 'the Fairmont room' in the north wing, which must be the old wing, that are worn out and bleak.

So be careful how you book. If you get the north wing, you might as well stay in another hotel, as you will not feel like you are in a Fairmont.

We lasted one hour in the 'Fairmont room' before moving into the South Wing. 15th floor, such a stunning view and very comfortable and easy. Great bathroom. Just a little bit worn in places, but they seemed to be upgrading the rooms during the day, I noticed tradesmen about a lot. Not noisy though.

May sound bizarre but we spent hours staring out the window at the Marina Sands Hotel and the Singapore Flyer. We went to top of both, and both were great to do. I am glad we did not stay in Marina Sands, as it is much more exciting to look at the 'ship' on the top of those towers and marvel, than stay there where you could not 'see' what was on top of the hotel. That hotel was very artistic to visit, most the clientele seemed to be Chinese gamblers, as it has a casino.

Fairmont is a top hotel, the desk service, the breakfast restaurant was 6 star for quality and variety (a personal fresh juice chef even) - all was romantic in the South Wing. Nice pools in the hotel, etc.

We used the business centre on several occasions in spite of this being a romantic holiday... not grumbling, we did not expect to have to do business.. and the business centre staff bent over back wards for us and it was very well priced to use the computers and internet.

The location was so good, we loved the 3 or 4 floors below the hotel of shopping centres, food mall, services like massage, hair cuts, etc. It is also close to Chimes with its myriad of upmarket cafes/bars.

Hotel is related to Swisshotel next door and Raffles across the street (yes we had a sling)
We caught local transport so easily. City Hall train station has two lines, red and green, (easy to get train from airport to city hall and hotel is literally right there above you) trains are cheap and quick and best for longer distances, better than cabs.

and we got buses into Chinatown in 5 minutes from hotel. As we flew Singapore Air, we caught the free Sing Air hop on hop off bus right at the hotel, too. Noticed that the other hop on hop off buses, also stopped at Fairmont.

We walked a lot, to the flyer, Marina Sands, China Town, etc. as this hotel is so convenient.

This was our 3rd time at this hotel. We like the location - close to the MRT , and accessability to other shopping areas of the city. THis time we were upgraded to executive club- which was a very nice surprise. We had a room on the 22nd floor in the South Tower so had a great view of Raffles.
We spent our last day relaxing by the pool prior to our evening flght - it made a perfect end to the holiday. We like the experience here which is why we like to finish our trips here.. roll onnext year!!

Spent 4 nights here in April last year. The hotel location is good - opposite Raffles. Its a normal 5 star - impressive lobby and service - rooms a little small and bathrooms good but not great.

We got a good price - otherwise would have stayed closer to min Orchard Road.

Nothing wrong with the hotel - but no wow factor. I think Singapore has better options. Would only be tempted back by a great offer.

I had the opportunity to stay at the Fairmont Hotel in Singapore for 3 days for a client conference. Having already paid 600 euros in advance, on checkin, it appeared that my booking voucher could not be found on the system and they wanted to take a significant security deposit. They upgraded me due to the complications to a signature suite. It was extremely spacious, had a good desk area to work and a beautiful large bathtub to relax in. The in room service was excellent. The staff were extremely polite and only too willing to provide service and support. The business centre services and conference room facilities were also excellent. In particular the welcoming service of the outside stationed porters for taxi service was outstanding.

I also liked the fact as part of the Presidents club I did not need to pack my gym clothes, they deliver your sizes to your room during the stay.

The breakfast service in both restaurants was excellent. InRoom dining was the best I have experienced of the luxury hotels of Singapore - particularly the atlantic salmon.

I highly recommend this hotel for business.
