Centrally located in a historic neighborhood, close to major attractions and public transport
The Fairmont is located on a wide street in downtown Singapore, a few minutes’ walk from the Marina Bay area, Fort Canning Park, the Esplanade, the Parliament, and St. Andrew’s Cathedral. The property is located above a big shopping mall by Raffles Hotel and offers easy access to public transport. The City Hall MRT subway stop, great for visiting the sights, is less than a 5-minute walk from the hotel and the Esplanade stop is down the street.
The Historic District is one of the most visited areas in Singapore, both by locals and tourists alike. The area is home to a number of high-end hotels, wonderful restaurants, corporate high-rises, and government buildings. It holds dozens of major attractions, including the Esplanade Park, the Padang, and a few interesting museums, as well as a variety of public transport stops.
The Fairmont is a huge rooms and 16 restaurants and bars, centrally located above the Raffles shopping mall in the heart of downtown. Spacious rooms are sophisticated and modern, with high-end amenities including Nespresso coffeemakers (except Fairmont Rooms) and flat-screen TVs. Most of the rooms have at least one balcony with gorgeous views of the Marina Bay and the skyline. The hotel also has the Willow Stream Spa, a modern fitness center, and two outdoor pools. But there is a pesky fees for Wi-Fi and parking, and the quality of the bathrooms varies from room to room.
