We stay at different hotels for different reasons.  Location is paramount next to hotel amenities and service. One of the best located hotels in Singapore would perhaps be The Fairmont.

Situated in the heart of Raffles City, the hotel is literally on top of the Raffles City Shopping Centre, where the hotel has direct access from its foyer, making the sometimes tiring job of shopping a breeze.  The shopping centre offers just about every sort of shop one would desire from first class tailors to art galleries and camera and electrical shops.  We did most of our Singapore shopping in this centre.  There is a wide variety of food outlets from fast food to fine dining.  Another plus is the MRT railway station situated in the shopping centre that enables easy travel within the city.

The Club Lounge served an extremely good breakfast and I would highly recommend the additional cost of booking into a Club Floor room.

Our hotel room was extremely comfortable and well designed and having an actual balcony that one could step out onto, was a real plus.  An added bonus was the pod coffee maker that made excellent coffee and the hotel’s relaxing music CD.  The bathroom was spacious, with separate shower and bath.

There are so many good hotels in Singapore aimed at the business and leisure traveller and this is one of them. John Pond
