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.
