The St. Regis Singapore

Nov 20, 2009

With its monied, Old World atmosphere and emphasis on bespoke service, the St. Regis Singapore seriously raises the stakes in this city’s already crowded luxury market. The hotel is also a pioneer in other ways: some of its rooms are specially designed for wheelchair-bound guests, making the hotel a praiseworthy exception in a continent inhospitable to the disabled.

Located on Tanglin Road, the St. Regis is close enough to Orchard Road – Singapore’s most famous shopping district – to make it a pleasant 10-minute stroll to the MRT station and some of the city’s sleekest malls. But it’s also far enough away from the crowds of shoppers who flock to Orchard Road on the weekends.
