If this site had a six star option I would have selected it because if the Fairmont is a five star hotel, which it surely is, then Raffles is simply a cut above. Everything about the suites in this hotel, from the furnishings to the décor to the amenities is done in perfect taste. The butler service, which is part and parcel of the service package is beyond attentive and represents the ultimate in coddling. I stayed in a Junior suite, which was comprised of a lovely anteroom with a small dining table, a large bedroom with sofa and easy chair and small desk, and a huge bathroom.
For a traveler planning to do some serious work in his or her hotel room, Raffles may not be the best option. The desk surface and outlet arrangements in the Fairmont are more suited to this need. However for pure, luxurious self indulgence, this is bar bar the nicest hotel I've seen here, and could hold its own against luxury hotels anywhere in the world.More
