The Fullerton Hotel, SingaporeThe Fullerton Hotel, Singapore (11 September, 2010)

The Fullerton Hotel (GPS: 1.2863, 103.85305) is a luxurious five-star hotel occupying the Fullerton Building, in Fullerton Square, Singapore. The hotel, building and square are named after Robert Fullerton, the first Governor of the Straits Settlements (from 1826 to 1830). It is located at the tip of the curve of the Singapore River mouth.

This site of the Fullerton Hotel has always been steep in history. It was here that the old Fullerton Fort was built in 1829, to defend Singapore against potential attacks. This fort is the battery that gave Battery Road its name. You don't see it today, as it was demolished in 1873.

Fullerton Building was built on 1924 and opened on 27 June 1928. Its first occupants were the Singapore General Post Office, the Singapore club, and other government offices. The General Post Office occupied the first three floors. The post office had a 300-ft curved counter reputed to be the longest in the world. A remarkable feature of the post office is a subterranean passageway under Fullerton Road that links it to pier, enabling mails that are transported by ship to be brought directly to the post office. Above the General Post Office is the exclusive Singapore Club, with members including the cream of Singapore society.

When the General Post Office vacated Fullerton Building, it was taken over by the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore as their headquarters from 1970s to 1995. The Fullerton Building was then closed for restoration, and was only reopened in 2001, as the five-star Fullerton Hotel. During the restoration, the interior was totally refurbished while the exterior was preserved as it originally was.

Across from the Fullerton Hotel is One Fullerton, a seafront dining and entertainment complex adjacent to the Merlion Park. One Fullerton is linked to the Fullerton Hotel by a pedestrian underpass under Fullerton Road.
