A spacious and luxurious address sits just in the shadows of the iconic Petronas towers of Kuala Lumpur. To say that this downtown is full of luxury hotels at competitive prices is an understatement. Perhaps no other major city has such a startling array of high name hotels, with posh surroundings and impeccable service. The Sheraton Imperial lives up to its name, the interior design and layout is grand, ornate and properly Malaysian.
It is within minutes of all the city’s prominent malls and parks by taxi and on foot. The ubiquitous public transit of bus, monorail and metro all come within a block of the entrance and from start to finish, the staff welcome you into the large hotel and even when there are many other guests the service and layout makes one feel as if the hotel is for oneself.
The hotel price often includes an option for lounge access. This is a minimal charge and well worth it. The club lounge is on the scenic 38th floor. The hors d’oeuvres are sumptuous, the drinks plentiful and the atmosphere is relaxing. Also the beverage, snacks and concierge assistance to be had during the day are stellar too. The hotel makes use of rich carpets and tapestries, tropical woodwork, columns, arches and patterns that reflect a rich Malaysian artistic appeal.
Sheraton fitness and Mandara Spa are two of the best ways to enjoy a relaxing and stress-releasing vibe in a busy city. The stylish comforts of the Spa include a variety of treatments, an ample size sauna, steam and Jacuzzi pool. An outdoor pool space completes the scene with a poolside restaurant, relaxing chairs and waterfall like background. The fitness center is smaller, but complete with cardio, weight and strength training implements. All things considered there is plenty of space to relax and unwind.
The daily breakfast that can be taken at the downstairs level is an impressive display of variety and deliciousness. There are traditional western foods, eastern foods and a wide range of fresh and healthy products available to savor as well. Once again staff are plentiful and ready to assist. The hotel feels certainly like a cool and shady oasis which is much appreciated from the outside brightness and humidity.
Overall the Sheraton Imperial is an excellent choice, it takes its rightful place among the top hotels in the city of Kuala Lumpur and brings a taste of the local service, style and grandiosity within a more accessible price range all the while maintaining and exceeding the global average for the quality of this particular brand of hotel.
