As Singapore’s other historic property (Raffles is the other), the Fullerton is housed in the city’s former post office in a stone-clad 1928 building. The lobby is massive, with several sitting areas, cafés, shops and a bustling vibe (while the Raffles feels more private and elegant). The hotel conversion, however, was masterfully executed, and the 400 guestrooms and suites are comfortable and more contemporary than the historic setting would imply (flat-screen televisions, large bathrooms, minimalist color scheme). Some of the original details were painstakingly restored and rooms on the second floor have high, soaring ceilings. The best accommodations face the marina (in September, when Formula 1 comes to Singapore, these are booked months in advance, as they overlook part of the racetrack). The sizeable pool hovers over the busy downtown district and there’s a small but beautiful spa, The Spa Artisan. Among several restaurants on the property, Lighthouse – with its stunning rooftop bar and panoramic views – is one of the city’s best spots for Italian cuisine.

Who Should Stay

The Fullerton is a great option for travelers who are looking for a historic setting (i.e. not a skyscraper), but who don’t mind a big-hotel vibe.
