Fairmont Singapore (Chinese: 费尔蒙特酒店), formerly Raffles The Plaza (Chinese: 莱佛士大厦) is the sister hotel of Swissôtel The Stamford located within the Raffles City complex in Singapore. It has a total of 769 rooms and suites housed within two 26-storey towers. Opened as The Westin Plaza in 1986, the hotel was refurbished together with Swissôtel The Stamford, formerly known as the Westin Stamford, and was renamed Raffles The Plaza on January 1, 2002 and Fairmont Singapore on December 12, 2007 with a change in branding.

Both hotels are currently managed by Fairmont Raffles Hotels International. Fairmont Singapore currently houses one of Asia's largest spas - Willow Stream, formerly RafflesAmrita Spa, and shares all sports and recreation facilities with Swissôtel The Stamford. The hotel is connected to Swissôtel The Stamford, Raffles City, City Hall MRT Station, and CityLink Mall.

In 2005, the 117th IOC Session was held in the Raffles City Convention Centre, located in Raffles City. Most IOC members stayed in this hotel, as did several well-known figures who came to the city to support their cities' bids. In 2006, the hotel's service area in the basement became an expanded retail area of Raffles City with 50 new shops.
