As a frequent traveller I have stayed at my share of moderate, good and luxury hotels over the years. As such, when I come across a fantastic hotel like the St Regis Singapore, I want to tell anyone who will listen. The 'basic' rooms are better than most 'luxury' (read expensive) rooms in fabled hotels elsewhere. The rooms are made with quality materials throughout. Lighting, sound and video systems are fully integrated. the bathroom is pure luxury. External sounds are nil as are those from nearby rooms. the service is pleasant and understated, yet always present. Although I unfortunately stayed only one night due to my schedule, this hotel is now in the top group of city hotels I have experienced in the world. As for the room itself, I have not had a better experience. There have been bigger rooms, better views and more money spent, but in terms of quality, luxury, peacefulness and practicality, the St Regis Singapore has topped them all.
