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
I had requested for a Padang facing room a month ahead of my stay and yet when I checked in, I was not given the Padang facing room and told that all the rooms were fully booked.
Since I had a baby, I requested for a baby bathtub via email days in advance, but it was not set up. That's OK, so I called housekeeping but the bathtub was not sent to us. Swissotel has this questionnaire to fill once you log into their WiFi and so I mentioned my grievances and at around midnight, the phone rang so loudly and woke both of my kids up, asking me if I have a baby cot??! So the next day, I called in to ask for a tub, which they then sent. But it had a hole in it, and a layer of dust all over. It was disgusting, and I didn't use it.
All in all, a rather poor experience. If you don't mind paying a lot of money for very little service, go ahead and stay here.
Bar prices are over the top 40 dollars for two was a bit much but the accomadation was top rate.
Location to everything was excellent . Train station was within the complex so easy to get around.
I would stay again.
Great accommodation. Amazing friendly staff and the location has everything you want. The view is fantastic, clean modern rooms with best WiFi. Pool perfect with children. You can eat in or venture away.
First of all, I would like to compliment the staff of Swissotel Stamford Singapore. Right from the front desk to the lounge staff, every single one of them are helpful and friendly.
This is our first time staying in Swissotel Stamford Singapore and we are very impressed. Check in was smooth, we were brought up to the 65th floor by a staff from the front desk. The staff had problem with his key card which deterred him from accessing level 65. This particular staff solved the issue by asking a fellow guest for help after knowing they stayed in the club floor. This action prevented us from going down all the way to the lobby (with our heavy luggage) to get a working key card. Sadly, I did not get the name of this particular staff.
We were received warmly by Miriam upon reaching level 65. Miriam was very professional, friendly and passionate. Check in was a breeze with her. She is really a wonderful lady. We were thrilled to be informed that with our platinum status, we had been upgraded to the skyline suite which had the perfect view of the Marina Bay. It happened to be the rehearsal of the Singapore National Day so we had a fantastic and unblocked view of the wonderful fireworks show!
We went to our room on the 63rd floor and it was really huge and comfortable. The room features 2 walk in wardrobe and a relaxing living room equipped with its very own wine fridge. The bathroom was of good size and it’s bathtub was large enough to fit two people. From what I have read, this particular room was made for newly weds in mind.
The lounge of the hotel has an unblocked 360 degree view of Singapore. The lounge was very well designed with wooden accent and floor to ceiling windows. It was spacious and comfortable, definitely a space that we could lounge all day in. Food varieties in the lounge was ample and of local flavors. The lounge staff was attentive and hospitable.
It was a fantastic first stay with Swissotel Stamford Singapore. We will definitely be back! Once again, thank you to all the staff that has taken good care of us and the wonderful and charismatic lady, Miriam!
Dear Swissotel Management,
I have been staying at the Swissotel's sister hotel, The Fairmont for over 10 years now in Singapore which is also a fabulous hotel with great staff.
I decided to give the Swissotel Stamford a try based on the suites available. From the moment I arrived to the moment I left, the whole experience was effortless and a real pleasure.
I was greeted by Miriam Thomas (Executive Manager) who was the epitome of professionalism and friendliness that made you feel very welcome and at home. This is an extremely difficult combination to achieve.
With 20 years of international travel and staying at numerous 5 star hotels, Miriam would have to be the best ambassador to guests that I have ever dealt with.
Miriam, thank you for catering to my needs and requests with the utmost respect and quality of service, it was very much appreciated. So much so, that I will be staying at the Swissotel Stamford again on my next visit in a month's time. I was very impressed (nothing was ever difficult or a chore)!
The Skyline Suite was exquisite (very spacious) with remarkable views of the Marina Bay area and the room/cleaning service staff were highly respectful of my time and space, as well as assisting with anything I required.
All in all a 5/5 for me and apart from the beautiful room and breakfast, all the staff, especially Miriam were the ones that made my stay very memorable.
