Feel on top of the world at Swissotel The Stamford, a much-loved grande dame in the centre of one of Southeast Asia’s most fashionable powerhouses, iconic Singapore. Soaring like a glittering lighthouse with a staggering 70 floors, overlooking the striking cityscape and the islands of Malaysia and Indonesia beyond, it’s one of the tallest hotels in the continent.
Behinds its gleaming façade, good old-fashioned hospitality and a dazzling array of amenities await. Take your pick from no less than 15 restaurants and bars, bliss out in one of Asia’s largest spas, work up a sweat in the gym or on one of the hotel’s six tennis courts or simply float your troubles away in one of the two freeform swimming pools.
If you manage to drag yourself away from your city-centre oasis, the fast-paced metropolis of Singapore awaits. Embrace its lively bustle and make the most of the world-class shopping, irresistible cuisine and cultural events it has to offer.
Covering 34 square metres, Classic rooms have a sleek contemporary feel, with floor-to-ceiling windows affording spectacular views. Choose between king-size or twin beds, and there’s a well-equipped en-suite bathroom.
The hotel’s Equinox Complex boasts five vibrant restaurants. Find innovative French creations at the elegant JAAN and modern European cuisine at Equinox. For authentic Singaporean fare, head to Kopi Tiam (where you’ll enjoy a 30% discount on food), or sample Swiss specialities at Cafe Swiss (where you’ll be able to make the most of a 50% discount on food).
The huge Willow Stream Spa (shared with the Fairmont Hotel next door) is where you can drift off in beautiful relaxation lounges, pools, whirlpools, cool plunge, steam and sauna rooms. Elsewhere there are 35 treatment rooms, including three couples’ suites featuring private Jacuzzis and an aromatherapy steam room.
In a surprisingly quiet location, the hotel is part of the Raffles City Complex (the legendary Raffles hotel is close by). It’s also near Marina Bay, with lively nightlife at Boat Quay and Clarke Quay about a 20-minute walk away. This city slicker is connected to two shopping malls and the metro system at City Hall MRT Station. The hotel shares some of its facilities, such as the swimming pools and spa, with the Fairmont Hotel next door.
How to Get There
Very Nice Hotel and very close to the Suntec Centre, where we attended a conference. The hotel is connected to the Suntec through a superb 3 floor shopping Centre. It’s walking distance to other hotel, and shopping malls, close to Chinatown and Raffles Hotel, reopening in September 18 I believe. What I liked most about the Stamford was the staff, highly professional, helpful, efficient. Overall a great good value hotel, highly recommend it.
Comfortable stay . Efficient chk in and Chk out . Friendly staff . Sumptuous breakfast . Overall very good. Accommodated my early check in request . Kept my luggage on day of departure . Mall next door . Beautiful view .
Mind you, the property is since 1999 my home away from home, I cant count the nights I spend at the Westin and Swissotel, but I am certain, I can count the nights I will stay at the SWISSOTEL EXPRESS, since it is under Accor
From a SPG hotel to the Swissotel, the level of luxury was kept, now it is under ACCOR and it became a “Express” version of the more upmarket Accor hotels – its nothing more as the NOVOTEL.
Decisions were made to rune a brand, the French are very good in that, we call them:
Snobs, ignorant and careless about others than French!
The hotel is run under one of the greatest MD/GM I ever met in hotels in Asia and the staff is fantastic, just the room DOWNGRADE is terrible, all so French, no stile just a cheap look
The room design is poor, no cloth brush (its’ too difficult to have two hooks at the back wall to hang up a brush and a shoehorn (the miniature execution in the drawer is useless)
Towels are smaller as before, Amenities have changed in size too. He box on the vanity is such a annoying peace of useless decoration piece. The umbrella also left the room.
The spout for the bath is at the end, without stand in to the bathtub, its not possible to check the temperature, what a stupid design!
As my stay was rather short, I did not explored all the failures, but the list will go on, it’s not that I cant get used to the new design, if it would have improved. As a business developer, I could not give any sales USP to sell what has been developed, as nothing has become more sufficient, only the USB charger at the power points, what a great upgrade.
The bath room is to dark, a open window would made all 150% more friendly and made a difference to the overall experience.
Fantastic views in all directions from this hotel. It’s undergoing a refurb - I was in one of the older rooms, but it was still very comfortable and clean. The gym and spa area are very good. Staff are excellent.
This was a good choice for us to spend 2 nights in Singapore after a few weeks in England.
The Stamford is 20 minutes or so by cab from the airport and is comfortable, with spacious rooms, good a-c and wifi and our room had views out over the gallery and church.
After the long flight it was great to have some time here and we enjoyed the pool, which gets quite busy in the afternoon. We also did a really interesting half hour loop out walking out along the river past a range of historical monuments. The little brassiere downstairs was handy for breakfast and there’s a lot more options in the Food Hall near the station.
The location is okay for shopping, but there’s a tube station next door and it’s 10 minutes or so into the heart of Orchard Rd. or a short train ride to the Gardens by the Bay, which we enjoyed. You could almost walk to them but it was too hot!
