My yet another leisure trip to Kuala Lumpur, it seems to me that whenever I want a short holiday, I will go to Kuala Lumpur.
It’s a gateway for me.
HUH? Kuala Lumpur trip as gateway? Yes at least for me LOL.
Maybe the reasons my hometown is too small and too boring already, and since I stay in Sunway for 4 years during my college and uni years, till now I still miss my life there.
This time, my pick of stay will be Sheraton Imperial at Jalan Sultan Ismail. Using the vouchers I got when I bought my Starwood Privilege Card, it only cost me RM330 nett per night.
Like all other Starwood hotels, service is great. Check in is super fast too, and I am able to check in at around 10.20 AM.
Room is big, bed is nice, the only complaint is I my room is not facing KLCC.
The spacious changing room and wardrobe.
Toilet is big too consider this is just a normal deluxe room. Oh notice there are 2 bottles of complimentary mineral water in the toilet? Add on to the 4 bottles of complimentary mineral water at the first picture on the bar, it’s a total of 6! And they will top up every day for you once you finish it. Very generous I will say.
Gadget fan will be happy when they see this. HDMI and DVI, blah blah blah, you can connect your PC and watch movies in the LCD screen in the room. Seriously every hotel should have this features now.
So besides the great room, bar with the noisy toilet which flush itself every 30 minutes, I would love to praise the hospitality of Sheraton Imperial.
It’s LY birthday, and I specifically request a cake to be sent to my room at the strike of 12 AM on the particular day when I check in. And precisely at 12 AM, here come the room service with the cake, candles and matches! All on the house!
KUDOS to Sheraton Imperial. It’s a simple one, but it actually taste quite good!
However, I would really love to complaint about their car park. In my opinion, they are really overcharging their guest on it.
Well, first of all, no complimentary free parking even if you are the hotel guest. It cost RM8 per day per entry. Which means if you enter and exit the car park 3 times a day, you will need to pay RM24 for that day. This is madness. However, then again since the hotel is so near to KLCC and Bukit Bintang, I will even skip the nearby monorail station but just hire a cab. Taxi are considerably cheaper now in Kuala Lumpur since most of them used meter now, unlike the great old days where they will charge you around 3 times the price you will pay if it use meter.
Oh besides the great room, the hotel gymnasium and jacuzzi is great too. Never try the famous Mandara Spa though.
Total Damage: RM330 nett per night (using my Starwood Privilege Voucher)
