Extra day is needed if you want to shop or go to Sentosa island. There's a "Ground Transfer Desk" that offers transfer to your hotel/city for $9.00 p/p at the airport. Get a r/t ticket. Change money just enough to pay for your fare as they do not accept other currencies, in our case, US$ . Do the rest of your exchange at your hotel. Swissotel the Stamford was the hotel of my choice because it is located within the center of the city, next to the marina and being one of the tallest hotel - gave me a view of the Light Show at night. Book a "marina bay room" if you can spare the extra cost, as you will have a spectacular view of the majority of the sightseeings you wanted to visit. You will see from your balcony the famous Marina Bay Sands hotel, Art Science Museum, Esplanade, Singapore Flyer, Garden by the Bay, Merlin - the mythical symbol of Singapore, Cathedral, Light Ray Show (find out what time the show starts), and more. From the lobby of the hotel, an escalator one floor down shows you plenty of places to shop and restaurants to choose from. Raffles and Fairmont hotel are also next door.
Tours: I booked 2 tours from Viator from the U.S., "Singapore by Night" we had dinner along the Singapore river that offered different tasty dishes brought at our table of 8, then a short stop at the market for bargains, and last, a visit to Raffles hotel dating back to 1887. You don't really get to see the rest of the hotel, as your tour brings you directly to the bar that included entertainment. It is my understanding that only guest of the hotel are permitted to roam around. Tours like the one I took, or perhaps booking a reservation at one of their restaurants can give you that glimpse of the hotel. At the bar, you can order your drink of choice but their signature drink is the "Singapore Sling." It is on the expensive side, very light... and overrated. Since this is the last stop of the tour, you can stay at the bar for as long as you like. Swissotel Stamford is just across. The 2nd tour was "Singapore City Tour", half day tour that let you see the Merlin-close up, Little India, Thian Hock Temple-one of the oldest Buddhist/Taoist temple on the island, Singapore Flyer, and National Orchid Garden-the highlights of the tour for me. We did some little window shopping when we got back at the hotel, dinner, and waited for the Light Ray Show from our balcony that night. I'm was very happy with this trip as I saw everything I came for.

Spacious room, great location, friendly staff, wifi was excellent, great choice of restaurants and bars. The equinox bar is excellent, views are amazing. Raffles is just over the road so perfect for a singapore sling.

We had two rooms, one on the 61st floor and 25th floor. Both had wonderful views. 61st Floor was a corner room of the harbor and Raffle hotel. Excellent location with Mall under hotel and lot's of restaurants etc around. Hop on Hop off bus stop across the street. Took Night safari tour from the hotel. We all loved it. Spent a day at the Sentosa Island Amusement Park, great fun only about a 15 minute taxi ride.

Stayed here on business. It was a good hotel. My room was large, comfortable and clean. Centrally located, staff were helpful and nice. It is a huge hotel though so expect huge hotel service, decoration, prices and ambience. Really busy! The hotel is attached to a shopping mall. Close to the river but you have to cross a few very large roads. Only negative was I had to get memos printed for a meeting and 1. The business centre was really hard to find, and then 2. Really really expensive. I have had things printed in hotels around the world and never have I experienced prices like this.

The location is good. Room was OK, the bathroom is old.
Espresso machine inside the room is great.
The breakfast was pretty good.
The hotel reception was pretty crowded because there are a lot of people going to the mall which is located at the same building.
