THE 5-STAR EXPERIENCE AT THE SHERATON IMPERIAL KUALA LUMPUR HOTEL

It was a decision made in an instant.  I was prepared to let go of my confirmed tickets to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.  But then again, my instincts tell me this is going to be a relaxed trip.

In a not so good weather where turbulence is the constant pace, I arrived in Kuala Lumpur at around 10 in the evening.  My travel buddies were already checked-in on what will be a luxurious stay for the group, in a 5-star hotel named Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel.


A 2-3 minute-walk from the hotel, there is a monorail station.  The hotel sits in the middle of the buzzling city providing a seamless access to the known landmarks and shopping centers of Kuala Lumpur.

THE ROOMS

We were assigned at the Executive Club Floor, pampering ourselves like royalties and business executives, contrary to the backpacking style (or “semi-backpacker” as some of my friends would point out) that we are accustomed to.

Alone again, for 3 days and 2 nights, I settled at a Sheraton Club room with one king-sized bed while my travel buddies in a Sheraton Club Suite.  My room was indeed spacious (for one) that I can bring along my whole family with me and even hold nightly parties with friends.  I was truly relaxed in the comforts of my assigned suite.

The stylish décor and furnishings in avocado and mandarin tones even enhanced the mood for a rejuvenating stay.  In all aspects, it was a luxurious stay indeed.  The city skyline was my daily view and it was such a refreshing treat to start and end my daily routine.

The oversized pillow and the soft and expensive linens provided has given me the quality and good sleep I long for.

The room comes with a complimentary high speed internet access,40” LCD Flat screen TV, walk-in closet, oversized writing desk, personal computer outlet, multi-function phone with IDD phone line, in-room hospitality port, upgraded bath amenities, six bottles of water per day.

I had an overload of water bottles daily and become handy when we roam around the city.  Every day, there are complimentary fruits and desserts as well served on the side table.  Service was personalized.

The bathroom like the room itself is likewise spacious, featuring marble countertops, lighted mirrors, spacious bathtub, a separate shower and toilet and a telephone and of course the range of complimentary toiletries.

SHERATON CLUB LOUNGE

As a club level room guest, we were fortunate to have been given access to the Sheraton Club Lounge.  As an executive lounge, it served as our work station.  And while working and gazing through the glass window, the iconic KL Tower and the busy thoroughfare was a pleasant treat to our eyes and our cameras.

It rains in the city every afternoon.  The all-day (6:30AM to 11PM) complimentary coffee, tea and cold beverages and the snacks served was such a comfort, that we would just lounge and do our work at the area during those times.  We have been in Kuala Lumpur for so many times, thus, we had a relaxed itinerary and it could even border to a business trip.

The evening cocktails and hors d’oeuvres (5PM to 8PM) served as a way of pampering ourselves as well after the day’s itinerary.  I may have lost track of the glass of chardonnay I have consumed yet I was really happy and satisfied.

It was a live kitchen experience where offerings range from traditional Malay, Asian, Chinese and Western cuisine.  I particularly liked the service of the waiting staff – efficient and fitting for a 5-star hotel experience.  There are times they would advise us of what to get for breakfast not only because these are house specialties but they discern the same to be soothing to our palate.

INTERIORS AND SERVICE

Most often than not, a hotel’s reception/lobby area carries the perception of what a hotel’s star rating is or the type of service you would expect.

The grand staircase and the intricate details of the hotel’s interior design over-all impressed me.  The Malay carvings with Chinese finishes complemented with a modern interior design was more than sufficient to impress upon me that a 5-star hotel experience is what we shall get.  And it did so.
