Headlines tend to go to the newest, the hottest, the flashiest. But there’s always an allure to a grand old dame. The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, with its home in the 90-year-old Fullerton Building, emanates heritage charm while being fully equipped for all the needs of the modern business traveller. And its location is still unbeatable.
This is about as central as you can get in Singapore. Sitting on the south bank of the Singapore River, the hotel is in the financial hub’s heartland, with the soaring skyscrapers of the city’s banking giants a mere stroll away. The Raffles Place MRT is nearby, too, with the airport only 20 minutes away by car.
All 400 rooms feature the classic elegance you’d expect from a heritage hotel, each with a unique configuration (it is a historic building, after all). Broad desks and excellent Wi-Fi make working in-room easy, and when you’re out, stay connected with a complimentary smartphone, which provides unlimited data across Singapore.
There are plenty of options for your business needs. For informal meetings, the light-filled atrium lobby is ideal; the refined Straits Club lounge provides something more intimate; while the 600-capacity ballroom, unveiled last year, is one of the most sought-after function spaces in the city.
