“almost perfect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We spent 3 nights there last week.
The room was a bit dated, needs a little cosmetic work in the bathroom.
Room service was slow a few times, we had to call for water and creamer 2-3 times.
WiFi in the rooms is NOT free, it is free in the lobby, i guess, and it is very expensive in the room.
Breakfast on the 8th floor is superb! The mattress was amazing, my back was very happy !

This hotel is starting to show its age... not exactly what you would expect from a Fairmont. Lobby is nice and the gengleman who welcomes you is dressed really nicely. I booked a king room but got a double room. The locations in amazing, great walking area, close to shopping centers and good options for dinning. The Buffet breakfast was the espectacular, they pride themselves on conveying organic products and do a fantastic job.

Spent one night on November 7th for work at Fairmont Singapore. There was some conference in the city and the Fairmont was totally booked. However, upon sending an email to their Reservations, I was quickly informed that they did have a room for me as they set aside some rooms for recurring visitors.

As always, its a pleasure to stay at the Fairmont. I stayed at a Deluxe Room and the room as expected was well appointed but a bit old. What sets Fairmont Singapore aside is the service standards. The staffs are possibly some of the best and enthusiastic in the business.

I did meet up with some clients at the Prego Restaurant and the service there was extremely good. The Breakfast at Prego was also fabulous.

Fairmont will continue to be the hotel of choice for Singapore.

I’ve just spent one week at this great hotel. The location is perfect, pretty close to the Marina Shops and minutes by walk to the financial center. Good hotel for business with great internet access and decent amenities. The gym is small and the pool not very comfortable but the spa is nice.

Room Tip: The higher floors are cooler :P

I can only but recommend that you stay at the Fairmont Singapore, the location, service and the warm welcoming that you will experience will truly surprise you. I have stayed at this Hotel 10 times since 2008, and it is a truly five star property. The Willow Stream SPA merits a visit.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the front of the Hotel and on the highest floor possible.

Best location too for...well, everything! Hotel was immaculate and room was spacious and well set out. Did I mention the view? We were overlooking One Fullerton and Marina Bay Sands with their awesome laser show at night. Amazing...I want a Merlion NOW.

The buffet breakfast was the best ever and that is no exageration. I swear the buffet was 50 metres long...and the selection and quality of food was excellent.

Room rates a bit pricey if you are being budget conscience but I guess you would expect that for a 5 star. We were lucky, they offered a free upgrade :-) Friendly helpful staff and the loveliest doorman every day. I really liked their uniforms too.

One complaint. I know minibars are usually expensive but this was ridiculous. Can of coke = $16!!!! Just go downstairs to the ridiculously awesome foodcourt in the mall at the bottom of the hotel and get one for $1.20. Room service was a little shocking too but at least was good quality.

Overall brilliant and will stay there if I visit Singapore again.

Room Tip: I recommend being at least on the 10th floor or above on the side facing Marina Bay and the Merlion!

I just finished a 6 day stay at the hotel and the service is second to none. As an American I am used to self service executive lounges. Not only was this a full service lounge but all of the employees were so wonderful and made me feel very comfortable even though I was traveling alone. I stayed in the south tower and the room was excellent and had a great view of the harbor. My room had two full size beds that were very comfortable, a full size desk and the bathroom was quite large with a ceiling mounted shower that was absolutely spectaculer! I recieved a free upgrade to the executive level that included free breakfast and happy. The happy hour included, wine, beer drinks and appetizers that easily could be made into a full meal if you're not looking for a 16 oz. steak. I actually ate dinner there 3 nights and was completely satisfied. Please note, that throughout Singapore, alcohol is very expensive. I had a beer at the pool side bar and it was S$14, so this made the free drinks for happy an even better deal. Beers at restaurants throughout singapore range from S$10-S$12 so the hotel upcharge wasn't too bad.

Room Tip: If your staying for 5 or more days make sure to join the Fairmont executive club before you book you...
