Just had a wonderful two-night stay at the Fairmont and every single aspect of this hotel was top-notch. Check in was extremely gracious and speedy (and since our flight landed at midnight, we were thrilled to be sent up to our room so quickly). The rooms were spacious, very clean and had beautiful views. The service in every way was fantastic - efficient and friendly. Two specific notes:
First, even though it was December there were days during which the heat/humidity was pretty intense. You can easily walk from the Fairmont Lobby, through the lovely shopping mall next door, and down to the subway without stepping outside. The subway is very easy to use and can get you anywhere. Everything we wanted to see - Marina Bay Hotel, Little India, Arab Street, Clark Quay - were all just a couple of stops away. Never took more than 10-15 minutes to get to anywhere we wanted to go.
Secondly: we booked the Executive Floor which is Floor 23. It was a bit more expensive and I was doubtful as to whether it would be worth it. But I can assure you it was! The moment you walk off the elevator on Floor 23, there are two dedicated staff at desks ready to help you with anything - and they could not be more friendly. The Executive Lounge was really lovely. A good spread was laid out for breakfast as you watched the city through the windows 23 stories up. But even more impressive was the cocktail hour from 5-8p. This was amazing. Full-on drinks, great wine, lovely champagne (Moet & Chandon) all served with elegance and smiles. And there is a lavish spread of canapés and nibbles - beautifully laid out. One evening we had a variety of salmon, beef and chicken appetizers and the next we had an amazing chicken curry & rice. And day-to-day the options were different so if you stay a few nights, you get to try different things. It's the perfect segue from walking about the city during the day to dinner/evening plans.
Really loved this hotel - would recommend it to the discerning traveler who likes a bit of luxury without the attitude.
