It is located in the heart of Singapore's business and historic district, about 30 minutes from Changi Airport and less than three-minutes train ride on the MRT from Orchard Road.
Restoration to the style to which it was once accustomed, it has 103 suites each with its own spacious parlor, bedroom, dressing area and bath.Moulded ceilings, overhead fans, timber floors, oriental carpets and period-style furnishings are ably combined with amenities of a Grand Hotel.
Adjoining is Raffles Hotel Arcade, conceived and crafted with same period architecture and details.
