Luxury Hotel at Orchard Road Area in Singapore

Hi, My mom and I will be in Singapore 2nd week of January. It will be the final port of our cruise. I would like to know what the best Luxury Hotel would be in the Orchard Road area? I would really appreciate your feedback. Thank you.

I like the Four Seasons but it's not on Orchard road. It is connected to the Hilton, which is on Orchard, by an A/C walkway.

Not too big and recently renovated.

Several years ago, we quite liked the Shangri-la which is on Orange Grove, off Orchard Road. I understand that they are undergoing a renovation though so you will likely want to look elsewhere.

I hope that you enjoy your cruise and stay in S'pore. Do let us know where you decide to stay.

Probably the Grand Hyatt, which is at Orchard and Scotts Roads, half a block off of Orchard Road.

In terms of location, I prefer the Fairmont.

The Hilton Singapore on Orchard road is a good option as a luxury hotel in that area. My second choice would be as Kathie suggested, the Grand Hyatt.

I also find Goodwood Park and Royal Plaza on Scotts pretty decent though the latter might not be top-notch if you're looking for luxury.

I've stayed at the Four Seasons and the Grand Hyatt. Liked both but the FS easily has an edge on service and feeling smaller and more personal.

Thank you everyone for your replies. If the Four Seasons has been recently renovated, I will check that out. I also like the walkway area through the Hilton. I will also check out the Grand Hyatt. Thank you.

Renovations at the FS completed in 2008.

Our room, 1 bedroom suite, at the FS Singapore was renovated in 2010 so I believe that at least some were completed last year.

Is The Regent-A four seasons hotel different from the Four Seasons Hotel Singapore?

Warm greetings. Will always have the highest regards for the Four Seasons Singapore; fine suites / rooms, public venues and great staff and friends. (The hotel was my main SIN business travel property before acquiring a home in Singapore.)

Of late, the FS has been offering various promos, including "stay two nights, third evening free". More details via the hotel's website.

Wherever you stay, enjoy Singapore.

I'd choose between the Four Seasons and the St. Regis. The Four Seasons is smaller, more elegant, more understated. The St. Regis is newer, bigger and fancier (to me, somewhat glitzier). I'm a longtime FS fan.

Neither is right in the midst of the Orchard Road shopping area, but it's a short walk or taxi. Close to the botanical gardens too.

I wouldn't put the Regent in the same category, but it does have Iggy's, a great restaurant (at eye popping prices too).

I've been to a number of luxury hotels (and restaurants) in Singapore. The St. Regis has to be my favorite. I have pictures and extensive reviews on Bombastic Life - http://www.bombasticlife.com

I have not been to the Four Seasons (yet) but will be there in a few weeks and will add the review and pictures later this month.
