My husband and I just got back from 4 nights at the FBH. We had a Premier Bay View Room. This means not only do you get a beautiful bay view and a small terrace (like the regular Bay View Rooms) You get a deck with chaise lounge chairs perched a few feet above the marina. You feel like you are on a boat. We would have morning coffee out there every day and nighttime cocktails there every night. (Do be aware that small boats will cruise by very close if you know what I mean) The hotel bar (Lantern) is stunning as is the whole rooftop pool area. The lobby is just beautiful as well. The hotel faces directly at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel which is a stunning view. A nightly 9:30pm laser light show from the Marina Bay Sands is beautiful from the FBH. The workout is is small (2 treadmills, 2 ellipticals , 2 bikes a universal, an incline bench, yoga mats an exercise ball and free weights) but it has a nice view and they keep it stocked with fruit infused water, towels and headphones. We were able to spend an hour or 2 in here every day. The staff were all extremely polite and helpful. The breakfast buffet has a omelet station . We went to Raffles to check it out and have a Sling. WAY WAY happy we didn't stay there. It had a lot of foliage which was nice but that's it. We had lunch at the top of the Marina Bay Sands hotel. Again, WAY happy we didn't stay there. It was like a Las Vegas or Orlando convention hotel...yikes! But it is beautiful to see from afar. I fretted long and hard about restaurant reservations and made a few changes once we got there. If you want a lovely outdoor table by the River with music in the background and good food, I would say IndoChine Waterfront. Ask for a table at the edge and go right before sunset. The pictures actually turn out better at night with the flash off. Then, if you want to try the Chili Crab and want to see a different area (maybe 10 minutes by cab) Go to Jumbo East Coast. Again, try to get a table outside on the edge. It's at East Coast Park where there are several Chili Crab restaurants. This one seems to be a local favorite. It's on the water with a nice promenade for walking by the sea. We happened upon SKI360 there. Its cable water skiing/boarding. It looked fun so we came back early the next morning for an hours session. After that we went to the Maxwell Food Center for the Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice for lunch. I think it must help if the dish transports you back to your childhood or something. It's not bad; it's just rice and chicken with some condiments. I know it's very touristy, but we took one of the night boats on the River. It's only about 30 minutes but you get commentary on the buildings and history. At night it's gorgeous.
That's the most I can offer. If you want a really fancy elegant hotel room pick the St Regis. But if you like a bit of modern minimalist with great views and cool rooftop bar go to the FBH. We loved every second we were there
