Just a stone’s throw from City Hall MRT station and walking distance from plenty of the F1 entrance gates, Fairmont Hotel is your best bet if you want to be in the thick of the festivities.

Fullerton Hotel offers their Quay Room or Marina Bay View Room during F1 season – both featuring windows where you can get a bird’s eye view of the race from the comfort of your room. Alternatively, request for the Esplanade Room which overlooks the bridge section so you can expect nail-biting moments watching how the race car drivers navigate the area.

If you’re not fussed about catching the fast parts of the race, then perhaps a stay at Swissotel The Stamford might be better. Here, their Premier Harbour View or the Swiss Harbour View rooms allow a vantage point of the slower part of the track. Those staying in other rooms can also opt to catch the race from the lounge at Level 65. During the day, treat yourself by shopping at Raffles City, which is connected directly to the hotel – convenience at its best!

Mandarin Oriental will situate you near the Bay Grandstand area of the F1 Pit, meaning you’ll get just as good a view of the race as ticket holders from your floor-to-ceiling windows. Go for an Ocean View or Marina Bay View room to spot the adrenaline-pumping competition near the Esplanade building. Hungry? Make sure to grab a bite at one of the hotel’s many F&B options, like Bay@5 for alfredo dining or Cherry Garden for something oriental.

If you’re going to book a stay to watch the F1 race, you might as well do it at somewhere as iconic as Marina Bay Sands. Their Marina and Gardens rooms are strategically positioned to let you see parts of the race laps, with the Gardens rooms in particular having balconies so you can chill out while cheering on your favorite team. Alternatively, you could even head up to the SkyPark Observation Deck for a different view.

Placing you right in the heart of all the F1 Night Race action is none other than Raffles Hotel. The building might be low rise, but you’ll still get a glimpse of the fast-paced action from your room window. There are a total of 103 suites to pick from, so specially request for a road-facing one if you prefer. It’s also just a 5-minute walking distance from the race course, and you could even perhaps hear the post-race concerts!

The F1 track in Singapore is rather huge, and if you can’t decide on a specific part of the track to camp for, maybe a stay at The Ritz-Carlton will be the safest option. It’s a 10 minute walk from the main race area, and selected rooms face Raffles Boulevard where the cars will zoom by. You might not even have to leave the hotel, since after-parties have been hosted at Ritz-Carlton itself.

JW Marriott Singapore South Beach is right in the middle of City Hall and Bugis, which makes it an ideal spot in the Marina Bay district during F1 season. A stay at one of the higher-floor rooms allows you to soak in panoramic views of the track below. Its proximity to Padang also means you’ll be able to hear the live music performances after the race – it’s pretty much a free concert!
