Spent 15 days visiting various countries in SE Asia. Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore also two visits to Tokyo. Since flights from USA to Vietnam and Thailand were less costly with and provided a break we booked stop overs in Singapore. Original plan was two different hotels in Singapore to be closer to various sights. 1st stop was Japan for one day. 2nd stop was a stopover in Singapore for two nights to visit and explore. The St. Regis was beyond expectations and the service probably the best I have had at any hotel. It was beyond Excellence. Fantastic airport pickup with no wait. Informed driver provided information on sights as we drove to Hotel. Hotel was prepared when were arrived and check in was immediate. Do to the hour we elected to have room service prior to resting for the night. Food was excellent. The hotel is beyond expectations and I highly recommend for either a long stay or a stop over prior to exploring other countries. The hotel was so good we elected to make another stopover on return to Atlanta via Singapore. Only at hotel for 12 hours on 2nd stop over and again it was beyond expectations. Airport transfer was ideal. No wait and quick trip to Hotel to relax, have nice dinner prior to early morning departure. Hotel arranged vehicle to Airport since our flight back to Japan was early AM. All went beyond expectations. Since we were using the same stopover hotel in Singapore before exploring other countries we were able to store winter clothing at hotel and sent a few items to laundry. It made trip really special. When we returned to St. Regis for the return back to winter in USA our clothes were ready and it made for an extra delightful return trip. St. Regis made the trip extra special. Highly recommend this hotel when you visit Singapore or if you need to have a stopover for a long period of time it will make the trip even more delightfuly. Excellent rooms, service etc. Just a great place to stay in a vibrant City State. Unknown on our travel plans we would be visiting Asia during CHinese New Year. Hotel was decorated and added extra touch for a special time of year. Chinese New Year is really special time in South East Asia.
