I am taking a vacation to Malaysia next month with my girlfriend and part of our stay involves a 4 night stay in KL. Can anybody give me advice on which room would be the best for our stay to make it as memorable as possible:
1. Renaissance East Wing (it says Twin Tower view)
2. Renaissance West Wing
3. J W Marriott
I guess things to consider are; location, quality of hotel/room, view, leisure facilities.
I stayed at the KL Renaissance back in February. We were in the west tower, which is convenient to the Club Lounge. If you are a Plat member, you can choose between the breakfast in the Club lounge or down in the restaurant. We preferred the restaurant. If you are going to the fitness center each day, it's in the East Wing. was a bit of a hike from the West but it was additional exercise I guess . As far as which Wing is better, I would say there isn't much difference, pool in accessible from both wings.
The Renaissance is right by the monorail. That was convenient. It is not very close to the train that comes directly from KL airport, but you can take the monorail from that train station. Not sure where the JW is in relation to the R.
Enjoy your visit!
My trip to Kuala Lumpur was before Marriott had a property there, so I can not advise you on the properties.
I can only say that I loved my stay in Kuala Lumpur.
If you get a chance to travel outside the city, I would also recommend that you take advantage of it, as its a wonderful country to travel in. Food is wonderful, people are nice and there is much to see. Malacca is not far, and you can see the remements of the Portugese rule in the architecture, and names. Of all the countries that colonized Malaysia, only the Portugese really integrated with the local Malaysian society.
Another interesting place to go is KuKup, which is south of Malacca. They are famous for their Chili Crabs. If you like Crabs, there is nothing better than sitting at one of the ocean side restaurants eatting crabs.
Other interesting places that are further afield, but well worth the time are
for me i prevere the renaissance hotel kuala lumpur , is better at the marriott. every years i get a upgrate there..special ckeck in in the 29 floor for platium members..
you dont have to wait on the front dessk.. and the excecutive lounge is exstraordinaire. a very good servive with 6 waiters.. western ,and asian food with red and white wine
french cheese, and then, later desset. this hotel have many restauranst, for me the best is the TEMPLETON, for a very small price, you can eat all what you want, for start
you have king prawns, or japanese food, and many ather starter, and then you have a choice from 25 different plates, and the dessert. all for a fixed price. i never see
this no where in all the world; ....with a.... all you can eat ...... system, you pay the same price.
and about the room book the west wing , the rooms are more big. ; and you have a very nice and big swimming pool with view of the city; with a very nice garden and many flowers.
i can only recomanded this hotel.
