Location – This is at Pusat Damansara, nearby to the MRT station as well as DC Mall. Pretty central location for you to get around to Kuala Lumpur or Petaling Jaya. But the construction around the area makes the traffic flow very confusing. Just drive slowly around that area. I think the construction may come to an end soon.

In general, I do feel this is a nice hotel for a quick getaway and staycation. I stayed for 2 nights but I think I could easily do with 3 to 4 nights here without feeling bored.

Lobby – At a glance, the layout can be seen as cluttered but having said that, I find it unique too on how it flows with the coffee house, cafe, the waiting area, the lift lobby etc. Plus, the wood and metal fittings used have a form of elegance to it, matching the greyish tone marbles and some art pieces display that they have. Contemporary and done with a taste.

Check in / Check out process – It was a very busy weekend due to the public holidays. The staff did try their best (with politeness too) to clear the queue as fast as they can. We do get the key first and have to wait a while for the room to be ready and sanitize.

Staff – Great and warmth bunch of staff they have here. Very welcoming. Also the hotel occupancy is very high and staff were very patience in handling their task. All their F&B outlets staff are very service oriented and friendly.

The room – Our room was upgraded to a Junior Suite. It is sizeable with a walk in wardrobe. Even their bathroom (that comes with a bath tub) is pretty huge.

I like their huge TV that can be swiveled and it looks magnificent especially pairing it with my new PS5. 🙂

In terms of the interior design, I do wish it translate from how their lobby is. I don’t see a unique feature or a distinct identity of their own. Don’t mistaken me, the room finishing are of high quality though. But it has too much of a business class hotel vibes (it does come equipped with all the relevant 5 star hotel amenities). Of course, there is nothing wrong with that “business class hotel” vibes but after going through the lobby, it possibly has set a different expectation for me. On a small note, I don’t really like the wall mirror that they used, not so much a fan of antique looking item.

I like the bed but I didn’t like the pillow. Too soft for my liking.

Hotel facility – I like their pool design and its layout. Although it is a bit small but it has a very serene vibe. It also has a bar attached to it. Can enjoy a dip with drink.

Tried their sauna too. The attached changing and shower area and well maintained and clean.

Hotel F&B – Managed to try all their 3 outlets and the food is great. For their breakfast, the variety is good.

Nizza and Wan Chun Ting’s (the Chinese restaurant) food is yummy and nice ambiance. Very hospitable staff.

Hotel parking – It was free parking as it was public holiday. Unsure how much it cost for normal days. When I came here for a function, it was flat rate of RM10 upon verification.

The hotel room lift is not directly connected to the parking. You still have to change lift (it is attached to their main lobby).
