Value Score Poor Value
Good For Families
An utterly lovely hotel, situated by the water. Our room had floor to ceiling windows with panoramic views of the ocean and the skyscrapers of the business district. The room had hardwood floors, and a to-die-for bathroom with octagonal cut-out windows looking out over the ocean. Great Bulgari amenities too. The service was classy, seamless, discreet. I only wish I could live in that hotel forever.
Unique Quality: Fabulous views, shopping nearby, gorgeous lobby and rooms.
Best on the Bay
Ritz Carlton is one of Singapore's premier hotels along with other great hotels like Goodwood Park, Marina Mandarin and the Shangri-La. Situated facing both the Marina Bay and the Kallang Bay, it has beautiful views for all rooms though the Marina Bay rooms are clearly the preferred choice for travellers.
Plush deluxe rooms, comfortable duvet beds and a expansive beautiful bathroom with a tub right beside the window that offers sweeping views of the Benjamin Sheares Bridge and Marina Bay. Clearly for the romantics.
Staff are all helpful and very courteous, greeting you all the time to make you feel at home. For our anniversary, they gave us a complimentary cake that looked too nice to eat.
Breakfast selection was plentiful and situated in a nicely lit and decorative cafe.
Unique Quality: Beautiful bathroom that is right beside a window that has sweeping views of the sea and surrounding Marina Bay. The higher floors, the better.
Plush, nicely decor room that is welcoming and not imposing.
All amenities provided.
Room was serviced 3 times a day and they even laid out my bedroom slippers and bathrobe when I came back to the hotel in the evening.
a 6 star hotel?
February 2008: Tell your taxi driver that you're going to the Ritz Carlton, and he'll probably say "that is a 6 star hotel". So, it's reputation is superb. I stayed there for four nights in February 2008 and do agree that the service was quite attentive and good. The buffet breakfast is very decent and relaxed. The rooms are what you'd expect for the money.
One thing to know is that this hotel is a bit off the beaten path. It's not a place to stay if you want to walk right out to the shopping. It's close to the CBD though, but again, not exactly walkable.
June 2008: I stand by the above, but should point out that "off the beaten path" is relative here. You're still close to everything. There is shopping nearby at places like Marina Square, and you are a short cab ride from everything. In Singapore I've stayed at the Ritz Carlton, Mandarin Oriental and Fullerton. All are great but I may say the Ritz edges the others out just a tad in terms of overall comfort.
Well, to be honest...
...a hotel is still just a hotel, and this is not worth paying for, but it does come with a certain ambience.
Unique Quality: Swimming in the outdoor pool at night...fantastic.
Sunday Champagne Brunch...marvelous
Best Hotel in Singapore
Our stay was incredible. The staff are so friendly and always ready to help you. If you can you should choose this hotel for your stay.
Unique Quality: The room we had was on the 30th floor with views of the Marina and the Merlion Fountain. All rooms have incredible views from the bathroom as well. Your bathtub is right in the window. Very relazing and romantic.
SIngapore's Best Hotel
Just returned from the Ritz-Carlton, Singapore and loved it. Everything about it was 5-Star. The breakfast and dinner buffets were unbelievably varied and superb. The room was as good as it gets and the view of the Marina and city is spectacular - well worth the little extra it costs to have the marina/city view. Probably the most important feature was the wonderful staff. They simply couldn't do more for guests and were the friendliest employees I've run across in my travels.
Unique Quality: See above
The most romantic bathroom i ever come across....
I opened the doors of the room when i checked-in, i dropped my bags, then drop my jaws and go "wow...."....it had such a wonderful view of Singapore. For the marina bay view, expect to view the singapore river, esplande and fullerton view from ur hotel room. Walk into the bathroom and be greeted with another surprise. An octagon window jus next to the bath tub!....soak urself in a butler drawn bath in the tub at nite and enjoy singapore's nite scene. Radio and TV can be heard in the bathroom to create the extra romance when u tune in to singapore's radio stations.
Unique Quality: The romantic bathroom leaves me the greatest impression. Hotel room is spacious and luxurious. Choose to let the blind down or up in the bathroom. The bathrobes and slippers were so nice.....
Directions: Next to Suntec City.
Hotel with a view!
The Ritz Carlton Millenia is THE hotel with a view in Singapore. When I arrived there after a long flight a hot bath was something I thought would be great.... I did not imagine laying in the bath with a bottle of Champagne by my side and enjoying the most spectacular view over Singapore... the bath is build in such a way that you view the Skyline of Singapore - in the MOST spectacular way!!
Unique Quality: Service, Size of Rooms, and VIEW!!!
Directions: Close to the town centre - as well as close to the old Raffles Hotel.
Nice view from this hotel
We reserved this hotel, because VT member Kumachan200x recommend this hotel.
What was the impression of this hotel?
Answer was of course very good.
As you can see attached picture,nice view you can see.
If you stay this hotel, you'll be satisfied.
This is a 5-star hotel in which the rooms are elegantly designed, simple luxury without gaudiness.
Unique Quality: Especially from the bathroom you can enjoy watching the beautiful singapore scene.
An unusually inexpensive price considering it's a 5-star hotel, but in our experience there are always reasons for that.
In this case the reason is good and excusable - there is mass construction going on just outside the hotel - specifically, a new MRT train station construction is in the early stages, i.e. tunnels being dug underground. It's a view you can see from the window when looking directly down.
Directions: Marina District
A 15-min. walk from City Hall Stn. though in future might be 0-min walk, as a new MRT station is now under construction in the vicinity.

were to stay
I am thinking about going to Singapore in January next year. Could someone tell me what hotel they would recommend? I like staying in up market hotels. I’m also into photography were you recommend I should go?
Re: were to stay
Raffles, Four Seasons, Mandarin, Shangri La
Re: were to stay
Raffles Hotel. It is in town so it's very convenient too.
If you want to be on an island, you might want to try The Sentosa Singapore. It is one of the SLH (Small Luxury Hotels).
Re: Re: were to stay
Great hotel group.
Re: were to stay
I agree with those hotels, but it really depends how much you're prepared to pay. I'd say Raffles is first choice if you're prepared to pay the price. Have a look at www.raffles.com
Photography? Depends if there's a particular subject you're intereted in. The Chinese Garden, Chinatown, Raffles Place, Little India, the temples, the new buildings around Orchard/Scotts Roads, people at any of the local markets, flowers at the Orchid Garden, birds at the Bird Park...
I'm also a keen photographer and in addition to all those I like detail - windows, doors, carved figures on rooftops etc. You'll find that all over, just keep your eyes peeled.
Re: where to stay
I would like to suggest you Fullerton Hotel..
its infront of the water front, itself a old and charming building but have been redeveloped to a classy modern hotel recently
You'll learn more about singapore history more then other hotels (except Raffles hotel of course)
Re: Re: where to stay
Leon, that is a nice looking place. is the location good for tourism or better for business?
Re: were to stay
hyatt is good too.. right in orchard road!
I strongly recommend M HOTEL along Anson Road. It's a city location, part of the Copthorne hotel chain, looks modest on the outside but... you MUST go inside!!! Very modern facilities, clean zen design, upmarket feel if you stay in the suites. Choose "M Suites" they face the sea.
An M Suite has jacuzzi bathtub with glass walls that frost electronically at the touch of a button on the wireless remote control.
If you're a die-hard fan of high-tech spas you'll love this hotel. Cafes aplenty and many are frequented by classy bankers and lawyers.
Plus! Free flow of wine, beer & soft drinks at the club lounge. Nowhere else in Singapore has this!
Re: were to stay
I would recommend u to stay at Ritz Carlton Singapore. Get the room of the sea view. Its beautiful!! As for photo taking, u may want to take scene at the merlion,the esplanade (theater), our sky scrapers. Not forgetting the places of interest like our zoo,sentosa island,birdpark. And dont forget go shopping! Cheers!
