There are a lot of hotel options in Singapore but we chose to stay at Fairmont.
Fairmont is an international chain of hotels and resorts found in North America, Europe, the Caribbean, Africa, and Asia.
Its website promises an extraordinary experience when staying at any Fairmont property and I have to say that we did have a fantastic time at Fairmont Singapore.
Here are 5 reasons why...
5. NO LONG WAIT FOR TAXIS
Who said there's a shortage of taxis in Singapore when cabs were aplenty at Fairmont Singapore? We never had to wait long to get a taxi and I appreciated this more than ever when we had to endure a 30 minute delay at Fullerton Hotel's taxi stand!!! Taking the cab was our group's transportation of choice and we certainly saved a lot of time by choosing Fairmont Singapore.
4. COMFORTABLE ROOM
We were billeted in a deluxe room at the South tower which was recently renovated. No wonder our room was very modern, equipped with all the needed amenities to ensure a comfortable stay. The room was so cozy in fact, that we often found ourselves lingering in our room longer than intended.
3. IMMACULATE BATHROOM
It's rare for an all white hotel bathroom too look so inviting and clean but Fairmont Singapore managed to pull it off. A huge reason why I actually enjoyed my stay at Fairmont Singapore is because of the immaculate bathroom. Lock me in the bathroom all day long and I would still have been a happy camper.
2. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
Fairmont is centrally located with most attractions such as Orchard Road, Merlion Park, and Marina Bay just a short distance away. The hotel is also above the City Hall train station which meant that getting around Singapore was a breeze. As an added bonus, Raffles City Mall is connected to the hotel so there's no reason to get bored when staying at Fairmont Singapore.
1. OUTSTANDING SERVICE
It's unfortunate that I was unable to take a picture of the service team of Fairmont Singapore because they're the number one reason why I loved Fairmont Singapore. From the bellhops to the concierge, everybody assisted with a smile and accommodated our requests big or small. Also, we were given a free room upgrade because our room was not yet ready when we arrived at 3 p.m. It's proof that they value their guests and strive hard to please everyone that stays in their property. If all hotels had staff as dedicated as Fairmont's, there would be less weary travelers worldwide.
Although not as luxurious as other five star hotels in Singapore, the convenient location and warm service of the staff of Fairmont Singapore make it an excellent Singapore hotel option. Would stay at Fairmont Singapore again in a heartbeat!
