This boutique property really surprised our senses, in a really good way. We took our parents on a relaxing short vacation to Singapore recently. Usually, we go for the 'Resort' type of accommodation, but through a recommendation by a business colleague, we went for 'Boutique'. Upon arrival, the entrance was well hidden from the main gate entrance. This was nice and appealing as it did not overcome with the fluster of the usual busy traffic to that of a resort. The classically dressed doorman welcomed us and guided us to the reception desk.
First impressions... Wow. From the stand alone wooden writing desks at reception, to the glass display floor, showing relics from earlier excavations. The reception room sweeps onto a luxurious lounge area with leather loungers available to relax on and with complimentary Nespresso Coffee, Tea, Juice & Bottled water made available to guests.
The suites are a good size, with king bed and all amenities, seperate stone floor bathrooms, stand alone bath tub & wash basin, large shower with rain forrest shower head & WC.
What places this property above others that I have stayed in over the years, is the extent of the 'Automation' in all rooms: Touch Control Panel, to control lights, air-conditioning and all the drapes & curtains. If you do not want to use the touch control, you can control using the television control panel, which also gives complimentary internet & email access. Fantastic.
The restaurant, to which we had breakfast daily, is great, not too crowded, very relaxed.
Overall, we were impressed. Looking forward to our next stay at Hotel Fort Canning
