Luxury Resort in the Downtown Core

The Swissotel Merchant Court is a self-contained luxury resort offering a lush, relaxing refuge in the middle of the downtown core, overlooking the Singapore River. Centered in the financial district, Raffles Place, Orchard Road, Chinatown, and Clarke Quay are all within walking distance of the hotel. For attractions farther away, such as the Singapore Zoo, the Raffles Place train station is a 12-minute walk away.

Tropical Pool and Spa

Under the shade of palm trees, the outdoor pool is a perfect setting for a refreshing dip. Children can play on the water slide, while adults can relax in the outdoor hot tub. The two-level fitness center has everything you need to continue your exercise regimen and is open 24 hours a day. For additional pampering, book an appointment at the on-site spa for a massage or body treatment.

The extensive buffet restaurant offers ample cuisine choices for a night in, while the Blue Potato restaurant overlooks the pool deck and Clarke Quay for an intimate and scenic dining experience. Conclude your evening with nightcap or cup of tea at the Crossroads Bar. All of these establishments are right on the Swissotel Merchant Court property.

Business travelers will appreciate that the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Center are nearby, while leisure travelers will want to explore the exotic plants and Asian structures at Gardens by the Bay.

You'll find several popular tourist attractions just across the Singapore River, including the National Museum of Singapore and Fort Canning Park, luxury shopping on Orchard Road, and the Singapore Flyer ferris wheel at Marina Bay.

Rooms and Suites

The rooms at this hotel are impressively spacious and well-appointed with elegant furnishings. All 476 rooms offer convenient amenities like Wi-Fi service, a coffeemaker, a mini-bar, a safe, free bottled water, bathrobes, slippers, and a flat screen TV.

Upgrade to an executive room or suite and receive exclusive access to the Executive Lounge that serves happy hour cocktails and a free gourmet breakfast each morning. Every suite at this hotel includes a large work desk, a Nespresso coffee machine, and a spacious balcony with stunning views of the Singapore River.

Guests traveling with their family will love the suites with themed kids rooms. Separate from the living areas, the kids' rooms feature lively decor, a flat screen TV, toys, a play desk, stuffed animals, and a Wii video game system.

The Bottom Line

While the room rates for this resort are a bit higher than some other hotels in the city, the luxurious amenities, resort-like pool, and attentive service are well worth the extra cost. Whether you're traveling on business or visiting on a family vacation, this hotel offers everything you need to feel spoiled.

The Park Regis Hotel, also in the downtown financial district, offers similar five-star room amenities and on-site dining; however, the on-site pool is smaller and the hotel does not cater to families and children like Swissotel Merchant Court. The nearby Fullerton Hotel has a grand exterior and a scenic riverfront location, but is much more expensive than Swissotel Merchant Court.

Expert Reviews
Frommer's
Merchant Court is beautifully located in the city center, within easy walking distance of Chinatown and the historic and financial districts.
Fodor's
The trend toward developing no-frills hotels for business travelers led the Raffles Group to open Merchant Court, in the Boat Quay district.
Rough Guide
One of downtown’s best located hotels, well placed for Clarke and Boat quays and with part of its Ellenborough Market Café encroaching on the riverside promenade itself.
