“Excellent choice for Staycations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Hotel Fort Canning offers an exquisite experience atop Fort Canning Hill. The modernistic theme of the hotel was very welcoming and niche. It provided an interesting depth as the hotel was something modern amidst the historical environment it was in. The interior decor was splendid and very welcoming. From the paintings to the lighting and even to the carpetry, one can feel the warmth and allure the hotel provides.

I spent a staycation of 2 days and 1 night with my girlfirend here and we were both impressed and delighted by the level of service and the friendliness of the staff. From the moment you stepped into the hotel lobby till the time you check out, service staff are ever ready to assist with directions and help provide helpful suggestions. Furthermore, they do it with a smile :) I had trouble finding where the gym was and one of the lobby staff was kind enough to walk me to the gym. I was also assured that I could contact them should I need anything at all.

The room itself was amazing. The 'open' and modern concept meant that there were many mirrors and clear glass sectioning the room. It was very spacious and accommodating. It was super high tech as well, with automatic blinders and a smart tv among many things. Everything could be controlled via a centralised remote.

The facilities of the hotel was good as well. The gym was well-equipped with the latest technology and there was ample machines and space for the guests. Furthermore, towels and refreshments were also provided. It was also staffed with gym instructors.

We had a buffet breakfast and the spread was good too.

Overall, I would say it would be a top destination to go to for a staycation.

Dear Julius,

Thank you so much for your beautiful write up about Hotel Fort Canning and I enjoyed reading your choice of words, such as "warmth and allure the hotel provides" or "provided an interesting depth as the hotel was something modern amidst the historical environment it was in"
I am so happy our team made a difference at all time and that our room was "amazing and super high tech".

Very modern and luxury room in the unique and exotic hotel, which had been one of Singapore historical place. The cannon, the British command center, old cemetery, and many historical icon combined with the luxurious of the interior of hotel room. the automatic curtain, all marble floor, separately wooden living room, and the unique bathroom/bath tub which placed next to the bed gives a sensual touch for the guest.

Room Tip: choose the executive room

We liked the hotel very much. The evening drinks was very nice... the staff were very attentive.
Breakfast was also nice, but it was a bit crowded unfortunately. Overall experience staying at HFC was great. It was a quiet oasis in a quite busy city.

My friend from KL, Malaysia booked the hotel which was on a very special offer. I flew in for a one night stopover to rendevous with her before continuing my journey. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by friendly & attentive staff. I love the location of this hotel surrounded by a beautiful park & very close to the main shopping areas plus the underground rail service. During the afternoon complementary coffe & tea facilities plus biscuits, apples & chilled water are provided in the guest lobby. In the evening complimentary drinks & canapes are provided in the same area - such a lovely touch & a nice way of meeting other guests. My father served with the British army in WW2 and I remember him speaking of Fort Canning - so it was wonderful to roam around grounds where he once was.
Our room was a excellent size with a nespresso machine & modern restful decor with a spacious well thought out bathroom... The bed and pillows made for a wonderful nights sleep..
The breakfast in the new Glass House provided a wonderful selection of foods - again the staff were very helpful & attentive...
Also we had an excellent dinner in the Italian restaurant - I had spaghetti & fresh seafood. The swimming pools looked very inviting but we had no time. I would definately recommend this hotel & will definately stay there next time.

Room Tip: We had a corner room on the 3rd floor - I particularly liked the fact that you could have AC on or o...

After much deliberation, my wife and I chose this hotel for a six night stay in Mid August. We were not disappointed. We loved it !!!. Right from the first moment of our arrival the staff were just fantastic ... really. After check-in we went down for the evening drinks, and found this to be a winner. Easily mixing with other guests, or just a quiet time to ourselves in a peaceful setting. Our room was terrific, .... breakfast was great and plentiful. It was lovely to unwind after busy days in the relaxing setting of Fort Canning Park Hotel. Will definitely stay again. A week was not enough in this hotel.
