I was in town to attend a convention at Suntec and I decided to stay at Fairmont, which is just a 10-minute walk along the underground mall.
I couldn't have been happier with my choice. The location is topnotch, with a mall and two MRT stations right below. The room, though showing age, was well-designed and well-appointed. The bed was extremely comfortable and I got to sleep very well during my stay. Service was great and very professional. Everyone, from the front desk to the housekeeping staff, was friendly and helpful. As a Fairmont President's Club member, the free wifi was a welcome bonus.
My favorite part of the hotel had to be the facilities. The two massive pools were the perfect respite against the scorching Singapore sun, and made me forget I was in one of the world's busiest cities. The gym was well-equipped and was perhaps one of the biggest hotel gyms I've been to. Another FPC privilege I enjoyed was Fairmont Fit, where the hotel lends you workout clothes and shoes for a minimal fee. I also loved the spa facilities. Always ended the day there.
The hotel would definitely benefit from further refurbishments as it's starting to look tired. But overall, it's one fine place to stay if you need to be right in the middle of everything in Singapore.
