Location – Opened in December 2021, this hotel is just right beside the old Grand Season. Nearby, there is a monorail and LRT station. Due to Bulatan Pahang, traffic at the surrounding area can be mad at peak hour.
Lobby – Nothing grand looking. A cosy effective space with two counters on the right, a waiting area (also known as The Market where you can grab some snacks) on the left and up ahead the entrance, the lift lobby.
Check in / Check out process – Fast and efficient. There wasn’t many check in at that time as I manage to get early check in.
Staff – Polite and helpful. I also find the staff at the Café is particularly warmth and friendly.
The room – I got an upgraded room to the corner Deluxe Room. It is large and comfortable which comes with all 4 stars hotel amenities. What I particularly like is also the 60″ inch Samsung TV that came with adjustable bracket. In fact, I brought my PS4 to play a newly release game, only to realize that I forgot to bring the controller.
Another great feature is your bed is actually facing a large window and cover almost one side of the wall overseeing KL city. Waking up to a sun shiny day to this view is not half bad. In fact, even the bathroom blind can be opened.
The room has a sizeable 3 seater sofa and a round table. The clothes rack, the TV panel and the working desk are all seamlessly joint. The bed is comfy with good lighting ambiance surrounding it too. The side bed light design is pretty unique, very unusual.
Oh! Their deluxe room do come with a bathtub, which I feel another unique point cos it is very rare to get a 4 star hotel to have bathtub. The bathroom also has a rain shower, two basins and a make up desk just right outside.
On the downside, I do feel the room colour theme is a bit bland (white and grey with light earthy brown). And I do expect a form of signature smell for the room (since it is by Marriott) but it doesn’t have.
Also, one other bugbear of mine is the sound proofing of the room. I can hear the sound of the traffic quite clearly especially in the middle of the night with the mat rempit revving their motorbike engine.
Hotel facility – I was hoping for a swimming pool and sauna but they don’t have one. Only a gym. Also, if their lift have directory, that will be great.
Hotel F&B – Did manage to try their breakfast at the Lesung (Level 2) , it is alright, decent quality. And there is a balcony with table too where you can chill out.
Hotel parking – You can park at the immediate outdoor parking at RM5 per entry.
