Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel

May 1, 2016
2016

Arrival/Check-In: I arrived in Kuala Lumpur after a short flight from Singapore. I hopped in a cab and headed to the Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel during a torrential rainstorm, common for November, the rainy season. At first glance, the hotel has a local Malaysian feel. Check-in took a little longer than expected, but the staff was friendly and helpful. There was a lovely Deepavali display in the lobby near the entrance.

Guest Quarters: I stayed in a deluxe KL Tower view guestroom, spacious and decorated in pleasing orange hues that gave it a warm and welcoming feel. The room offered large panoramic views of the city skyline and an impressive view of the iconic KL Tower.

The Malay wood-carved furnishings and Chinese design elements provided a sense of the local living experience along with a hint of contemporary luxury. The Sheraton Sweet Sleeper signature bed featured Indian silk linens, 300-thread-count sheets and feather pillows. I slept well in the king-sized bed, an international traveler’s saving grace, especially during a business trip. With business travelers in mind, the deluxe room included the latest technology to enable guests to always stay connected and available — a 40-inch LCD TV with cable and satellite channels, high-speed Internet access and plenty of plug-ins near the bed and the oversized desk.

The bathroom featured marble countertops, lighted mirrors, a spacious bathtub and a separate shower as well as Shine for Sheraton bath amenities. The walk-in closet was spacious.

Services/Amenities: The Sheraton Imperial offers six food and beverage outlets on property. I enjoyed breakfast at Essence, which serves international cuisine and features all-day dining in a vibrant and diverse setting. I poked my head into Mandara Spa, and it looked heavenly. I wish I had time to experience it during my stay.

The Experience: My stay at the Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur was lovely. The staff was friendly and the room had everything I needed during my busy visit to KL. The Sheraton is centrally located in downtown Kuala Lumpur near the city center and minutes away from some of the best shopping and dining venues in town. The nearby monorail and LRT public transit lines provide easy access to Kuala Lumpur’s major attractions. The property offers an urban oasis for both business and leisure travelers seeking a local Malaysian experience.
