The Stamford has been around for some time but now I understand the excellent reviews. While the hotel itself may be showing its age it is well maintained, the staff are exceptional and the place seems to run like clock work!
We arrived to a busy reception but within 20 minutes had been ushered to our room and a roll away bed for our daughter had been delivered and seamlessly deployed complete with additional towels/robes etc. The rooms are generously sized with plenty of room for the roll away, a king size bed and a desk. All the rooms have balconies – if you enjoy the feel of the breeze in your face 150M in the air!
Staff from the porters (who greet you by name), the seamless check-in, concierge who seem able to book/arrange just about anything without blinking an eyelid, through to the ladies cleaning the room – all fantastic!
We didn’t sample breakfast in the hotel instead sampling the many nearby restaurants and cafes. Had high tea in the lobby bar and that was nice and moderately priced. If you want to treat yourself pre-book a Sunday brunch at Equinox complete with free flow Moet and cocktails – the food is excellent too plus you get the fantastic views from the 70th floor. Not cheap but well worth the treat if your budget can stretch and again the staff are fantastic!
The only (very small) negative for me was the tired pool area – the pools (one deep one shallow) are shared with the adjoining hotel so can get pretty busy and aren’t very big. Okay for a splash but no comparison to the more modern resort pools available in Sentosa etc. Also had issues connecting to the (rather expensive) internet and would suggest you find some free wireless access elsewhere or buy a local sim card and use your phone instead – call and internet rates are very cheap.
