Christmas Eve Staycation – DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Kuala Lumpur

DSC_6634

This year Christmas was celebrated in new way, a short staycation at city center of Kuala Lumpur with simple reason which is to truly immerse ourselves in the comfort and facilities provided by the hotel. Since the city area might be less crowded due to the long weekend with extended public holiday, it will be good time to walk around the city center too, which we seldom do.

We always enjoy staying in hotel with executive or club lounge where you could chill there all day long. Hence, before deciding this staycation, I had surveyed quite a few hotel options available, we finally decided to give DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur a try. We have booked the Executive suite with exclusive access to the business lounge which is located at the top 34th floor, with nice view of the KLCC twin towers. Although it is more like a side view of the twin towers, but it is still fine and more importantly, we get to sip our evening cocktail while enjoying the view.

This hotel is located just 15mins walk away from the KLCC twin towers. It is also conveniently sharing the same building with a commercial mall, the Intermark. Do not expect many shops available but just nice to reach out for some food and groceries. We can easily get a Uber or taxi downstairs.

Overall rating for the hotel based on the room we stayed:

  1. Bed comfort: 4 stars ★★★★
  2. Room space: 5 stars ★★★★★
  3. Room style: conventional business stay design
  4. Cleanliness: 4 stars ★★★★
  5. Toiletries: Crabtree & Evelyn
  6. Service: 3.5 stars (lounge staff less attentive) ★★★
  7. Location: 4 stars ★★★★
  8. Remarks: Despite the limited varieties during evening cocktail at the lounge, their food taste pretty decent. Like their fried tofu with thai sauce. Breakfast varieties on the other hand are really good at their Makan Kitchen.
