The Fullerton Heritage
Explore the unique heritage of The Fullerton Hotel Singapore. The Fullerton Building, built in 1928 and was the centre of Singapore’s commercial, social and official life, once home to the nation’s General Post Office, The Exchange, Chamber of Commerce and The Singapore Club - all of which played a pivotal role in the history of Singapore, was turned into a 400-room luxury hotel after a S$400 million makeover. The hotel officially opened her doors on January 1, 2001.
With a vision, owners, Sino Land and its Singapore affiliate, Far East Organization, purchased this landmark building, restoring all the authentic details of the legendary building. In July 2001, The Fullerton Hotel Singapore received the Urban Redevelopment Authority Architectural Heritage Award, Singapore’s highest honour recognising contributions towards the protection and restoration of Singapore’s built heritage.
The hotel today is a perfect blend of the old, wired with the new. The Fullerton Hotel Singapore surrounds its guests with a refreshing ambience of heritage, peace and tranquility. The hotel’s interior designers, Hirsch Bedner and Associates created a style of décor that is contemporary and stylish. Slick and streamlined fittings grace the bathrooms that are accessorised with the hotel’s customized brand of bathroom amenities. State-of-the-art features and complimentary broadband connectivity provide guests with high-speed Internet access. The building’s heritage and classic architecture make it eminently suited as a grand hotel. With distinguished Doric columns and monumental porte cocheres, The Fullerton Hotel represents the height of Palladian architecture in Singapore, with only two other buildings in the city that share the same architectural grandeur – the City Hall and Supreme Court.
