Did we enjoy our say at the Fairmont in Singapore? Yes we did.
Having stayed last at the Fairmont when it was the Westin Plaza Hotel (goes to show you just how long between drinks) it was nice to go back and experience the hotel once again.
Conveniently located above the rail station at City Hall and across the road from Raffles Hotel the Fairmont is well placed out of the hustle and bustle of the Orchard Road shopping district, but not so far that you feel disconnected from the beat of this town.
To tell you the truth the hotel hasn't changed too much since last I stayed here (10 years ago or more) in fact some of the elements of the room looked like they could do with a freshen up, especially the bathroom, taps finishes etc in the room we had looked like they were due for a change. Aside this the room was clean, tidy and big. (Could do with two folding bag racks in the room as one isn't enough.)
As far as the outlook goes, our room over looked the pool and couldn't have been better. What a stunning view it is through to the new Marina Sands buildings etc.
Restaurants are steep. Prego we enjoyed for breakfast and dinner but really at $80+ a couple for breakfast it is a lot of money.
One of the best things however about the Fairmont was the beds. Really they are about as good as you get. The Sealy beds in the hotel had pillow tops and once in who cares about the rest. A good move by the hotel and I'm sure one that many other hotels should look at.
Over all we enjoyed our stay at the Fairmont.
