Fairmont Singapore
Ranked #20 of 316 Hotels in Singapore
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 September 2010

Compared to other 5-star hotels in Asia, the Fairmont may not be at the top of the list, but overall, this was a thumbs-up stay.

Usually not the selling point of a hotel, the breakfast at the Fairmont may have been the best part of the stay!
- A coffee press at the table for fresh, hot coffee
- A fruit juice bar for made-to-order juices (featuring over a dozen different fruits)
- 8 or 9 different genres of breakfast food ranging from standard western (bacon & eggs) to asian (chinese, japanese, indian)

Located off Orchard Rd. on Bras Basah, there's a lot going on near the hotel: Chinatown, Waterfront, Bugis St., Suntec.

The room was relatively spacious and had a nice view of the Marina Bay Sands Casino.

The room had a musty smell (likely because of the high humidity in Singapore), but was very clean.

The staff were very friendly and were helpful. We had one incident where we asked the concierge if we could get beach towels for a visit to Sentosa beaches, and he came back with facial towels. When we finally got through to him that we were looking for beach towels, he informed us that he would not be able to provide towels of that size. We ended up going to the 8th floor pool and borrowed towels from there, which worked out great.

The hotel shares a mall with the Swisshotel, so shopping and dining onsite is a breeze.

Reviewed 14 September 2010

Just returned yesterday after spending 9 nights at the Fairmont. Stayed in a standard Fairmont room in the North Tower which was very spacious and spotlessly clean. Everything worked perfectly. From the moment I arrived I was treated as if I was the most important person there. Upon arrival I was greeted by three staff members who whisked my bags inside and escorted me from the car to the desk to be checked in. Check in was fast, efficient and friendly.

What I found so nice was that all the staff, from very efficient houskeepers to the numerous and very nicely presented staff on duty in the lobby, smiled and greeted you genuinely whenever your paths crossed. One example of the standard of service is when I ordered room service one night. It was only a salad and pizza however the meal was wheeled in on a table complete with complimentary small prawn 'taster' and four different types of bread. I had ordered an ice cream dessert and when I placed the order with room service the lady suggested that they deliver the icecream separately half an hour later so that it didn't melt while I was eating the main course! Sure enough, exactly half an hour later it was delivered. This standard of efficiency was repeated in every contact I had with the hotel staff.

As others have said, the location is perfect for exploring Singapore and a little tip for those like me who don't go for big hotel breakfasts. Downstairs at the entrance to the MRT is a 24 hour Starbucks who does a great egg and spinach frittata with turkey bacon, tomato and cheese in a toasted bun and a huge mug of coffee for $5.90 Sing.

This was my fourth trip to Singapore and my first stay at the Fairmont and there is now no way that I would stay anywhere else.

we stayed here for one night and almost 2 days and enjoyed the location, we didnt have the breakfast and ended up wondering around and spent up at another hotel that wasnt very good--forgotten name, and the foodcourt next door, which is great later in day wasnt open for breakfast...the pool was great for our daughters 9 and 12...and the rooms were comfortable and well appointed. we liked chinatown and one of our highlights were the fantastic food in singapore and all very reasonable price. fairmont checkin was easy and they were very generous in allowing us to stay much later as our plane flew out to greece at 1am....

We have stayed at the Fairmont on several occassions and again this trip they did not dissapoint.
The service is excellent and the rooms are lovely. We paid to be upgraded to the Executive Club Floors and enjoyed the breakfasts and cocktails.
We swopped from staying at the Swissotel the Stamford (right next door) to staying at this hotel due to the service and quality of rooms.
Another wonderful stay at this fantastic hotel.
