"Fantastic Location, Awesome Staff & The Old Girl Is Getting A Facelift!"
Have been staying at The Swissotel Stanford now for approximately 7yrs, for 3-4 for times a year on business and have never written a review, terrible of me! Hotel is perfectly located for easy travel and movement around the city, positioned on top of MRT Station. Adjoining Raffles City Shopping Centre, huge foodcourt and restaurants abound underneath the hotel and if not hungry, perfect for a walk around. Adjacent to the famous Raffles Hotel and an easy walk to The Long Bar if you're here to try a Singapore Sling. As per previous reviews, the hotel is starting to show a little of her age but all will be pleased to know that the old girl is getting a face lift (rooms being refurbished now) Even in it's current form, the hotel is more than adequate and certainly maintains it's place as one of the best in Singapore and being that little bit older has meant room sizes are huge in comparison to others. Being the tallest hotel in the city and occupying a flagship position overlooking the harbour, would certainly recommend paying a little extra for a "harbour view room" of any category to maximize stay and enjoy the breathtaking view of Marina Bay during the day and the laser shows at night, nothing compares. I have been fortunate enough to stay regularly in the suites (floors 64-65), massive by any standards beautifully appointed and yes a view to behold. Staff in the Crest Suite are of the highest standard and ensure your every need is met - thank you Chelsea & Robin! Every time I return I am welcomed back by all members of the team from the front door. A special mentioned to Sara who has been working at the hotel for as long as I've visited and is a credit to the establishment, echoing their culture of care at all times. Whether for business, a stop over or a holiday in Singapore, stay here, enjoy the central location and just take in those breathtaking views and get the true feel of Singapore.
"Great hotel in great location"
A perfect location for our short trip to Singapore. Raffles next door and the metro a 2 minute walk from the hotel, meant we were within easy reach of all attractions. Clarke Quay is a 15 minute walk away. The hotel staff were superb and our room was A1. No complaints at all. Coffee machine didn't work when we arrived but it was replaced within minutes of our call. The pool is shared with the Fairmont hotel next door but was never busy when we were there. Views at the top of the hotel are outstanding. Will definitely return.
Great place to stay that is close to everything either via walking, taxi Line outside or mrt lines downstairs. Bed was super comfortable and wifi reliable. With the fridge being full with the mini bar selection and the automatic deduction system you can't put your own items (fruit, water, etc) in there which is an inconvenience. There's an abundance of food options in the shopping centre downstairs that are priced for various budgets. Overall great hotel in a great location and staff are very helpful.
"Lovely repeat visit in well located hotel"
This was my second visit to the Swissotel Stamford, this time with family and friends, a large group of 13. Overall impressions were great, but there are a few minor frustrations such as very slow lift service and leaking bathroom fixtures. The staff are superb and numerous so there is always someone on hand to help. Location is just terrific, MRT and Raffles City are connected directly to the hotel and other attractions are a short walk away, such as The Raffles, cricket club, Clarke Quay. DUe to renovations, the pool is only accessible from the neighboring Fairmont hotel, as it is a shared resource. Our family enjoyed the pool and the tennis courts, available for hire. We upgraded to the club access which gave drinks and canapés in a small lounge on the 60th floor, as well as breakfast. The food selection was ok, nothing special, but a nice place to join our friends for a drink in the evening, breakfast is an extensive spread but can be crowded at peak times. The room configuration is good, quite spacious with good storage and easy to get a rollaway bed. Bar fridge has an automatic deduction system, so very limited space for your own drinks, only a small shelf at the bottom. Views over the harbour are magnificent!
"Good location, great view but room has a dated feel"
Hotel has a good location - all the conveniences of a city hotel (easy access to public transport, and a mall with a lot of restaurants/retail next door). We were given a very high floor which had fantastic views. Room was clean and of a decent size but the hotel is old and it shows, especially in the bathroom and room fit out. Check in and service was pleasant and efficient. Overall, a decent stay given the price and location but rooms and bathrooms need an update.
