Swissotel The Stamford, the New Look of Luxury Accommodation in Singapore
With beautifully appointed guest rooms and excellent facilities, I couldn’t think of any better place to spend our weekend in Singapore than staying at Swissotel The Stamford. A Swiss hotel brand part of Accor Hotels, this award-winning 5-star hotel let my friend and I experienced ease and luxury. For two days, we had nothing but comfort and elegance.

It has an easy access to Singapore’s iconic landmarks, famous tourist spots, shopping districts and entertainment areas. The hotel is also just 20-minute drive from the airport.
With a convenient location, we didn’t find it hard to get to the hotel. We rode an Uber from the airport, which we also found more affordable than taking a regular taxi in Singapore. It was around 5 o’clock in the morning when we arrived at the hotel. We checked in to our rooms immediately. The front desk staff just asked for our passports and one credit card to hold a minimal amount for the security deposit. After a few minutes, he handed our room keycards.

The Newly Renovated Premier Room
Staying at the newly renovated Premier Room of Swissotel The Stamford, I couldn’t help but to get excited. When I entered my room, I was ecstatic to see how lovely it was. “Wow!” I uttered.

The room interior is rustic teak wood and handcrafted stonewall accents with soothing hues of grey and maroon. The room also offers a huge functional living space.
I dropped my backpack in one corner. Although tired, I couldn’t resist taking photos before going to bed. My room has a large King Bed and a seating area. The bathroom is fitted with vanity counter with a beauty light. There’s also a vanity box with signature bathroom amenities. The bathroom also features a standing rain shower.

Guests can use this for free for wireless Internet and local calls even when on the go.
Another surprise was the in-room snack basket. This is one of the best welcome treats I had in a hotel. Hungry as well when I arrived, I indulge myself with these snacks first before I finally went to bed. I had a bottle of wine, a platter of fruits, a plate of chocolates and some pastries and muffin.
