We decided to experience the hype about Raffles Hotel after watching their documentary at Channel News Asia. As such, I used my SRV for a stay here for 2 nights. I completed their pre-arrival check in so that really sped up the check-in process. We were led to our Courtyard Suite immediately by the service staff at the lobby. The room was huge and well-appointed. Our butler didn't manage to show us around our room as we had a lunch reservation and we couldn't wait for her. I guess she was busy but she did say she would come by later. We tried their in-room dining and the food was excellent. We didn't had to wait for the food to be delivered and our butler did a good job laying out the food for us. Breakfast was a mixed affair as on the 2nd day, my wife was served bacon in her omelette when she specifically asked to exclude it. This is a huge disappointment as it shows that the kitchen staff are careless when dealing with specific requests. Another aspect of the stay which we were disappointed was how the check-out process pan out. I understand that the Covid situation changes the experience but they promised to call us from 10am to 12pm to confirm our final bill but no such call happened. We gave up and check out and I'm surprised the butler didn't even call to offer luggage assistance. We made our way to the lobby and took a cab out. We stayed at other prestigious hotels and we never experienced such an indifferent check out experience. I received a call from one of the staff only when I reached home. Overall, we enjoyed our stay but the end ruined it for us. We have stayed in better properties than this.

Hotel's Favorite
This was the second time in the Grand Dame each time back the experience was better than the last. We spent all our vacation days in 2020 on staycations and it would be an understatement if we said that the service at Raffles is second to none. We have travelled widely and stayed at hotels of every category - but we are proud that the best hotel is actually in our own backyard. The Raffles team has surpassed all of our expectations. From the comfortable limo ride to the warm welcome of the entire team at the front, the seamless check in, the attention to details by the butler. Everything was perfect this time! There were even little touches to enhance the already-opulent experience - the offer to take a photo as you walk into the beautiful lobby, the welcome Singapore Sling and the in-room high tea. Thank you for the best experience yet in Raffles. With that, how can I not return?

The hotel didn't inspire confidence at first, given the replies before payment. Wrong dates given in emails, slow replies. After payment, it was as though another team took over completely, and replies were speedy. Replies after the stay seem to have slowed down. This was the only inconsistent thing about Raffles, which makes me feel like quality service is only for the people who have paid up for their trip. That being said, I still found my experience with Raffles pleasant. I arrived at Raffles and a photo was taken for us at the grand lobby. I expected to be sold the photo, but it was printed for us and left in the suite's table during the turn down service. The service staff also escorted me and my guests to the suite, which they felt was a personal touch as well. Staff also knew us by names, which was pretty amazing. What made the experience for me was the butler service. I've never seen such a quick response to my requests at other hotels under Accor. I made requests for - Breakfast outside my room (delivered under 30 minutes, they need to setup the entire set menu) - Extra bathrobes (delivered in 10-15 minutes) - Inclusion of my family members on the history tour - Ice Bucket (delivered in 10-15 minutes) - Wine Bucket with Ice (delivered in 10-15 minutes) and there wasn't a time where i ever doubted if they would deliver. I was upgraded to the Personality Suite (booked Palm Court Suite) and really appreciated it. The Personality Suite was in a more secluded area, so it was good for us. The history tour was amazing too ! They helped us to take photos so we did not have to worry about it. Lastly, I wished that it was clearer to Accorplus members on their privileges. Raffles is under Accor, but i was not sure if having Accor status (Gold) made my experience any more rewarding. They do their best for everyone, which is a good thing in itself, but i might be tempted to book over 3rd party sites over Accor, if the privileges are not made clear.

Although we made a very last-minute booking, the hotel managed to get the room ready for about an hour. Our butler, Sue Xian was excellent. The staff were very welcoming and efficient housekeeping service. Check-in and check-out process was very smooth. Despite being in the city, our room was quiet. kids love to stay here.

I tried to call Raffles hotel mainline last evening regarding my high tea reservation for today (07 apr 21). I was placed on hold for 26mins + without managing to speak to anyone. See screen grab. My friend also attempted to call the hotel twice during office hours on the same day. Likewise no one picked up. I gave up eventually and I leave a message on their Facebook messenger. I received a call back at 3pm today, i told the lady (did not managed to get her name) that I am already in the hotel lobby. Without asking what was my initial request, Her immediate response, "oh ok, goodbye then" I asked if she is coming to the lobby to speak to me, which she responded as no. She is not located in the hotel but in another office. I shared with her my feedback regarding lack of manpower/ response(?) for hotel phone lines. No explanation was offered, except asking me what time did we made the call. Her nonchalant attitude infuriated me. The service from Raffles hotel is disappointing, no where near 5 star. I believed any restaurants out there already have better service than Raffles. Minimally, they picked up their calls.
