Renaissance Hotel

21 12 2009

The mark of a true 5-star hotel can be seen in its services and facilities. Sure, they may have what everyone else has, but consider the magnitude of this commitment and you can probably pick the diamond from the glass. Renaissance Hotel has gone all out to retain its classiness and understated elegance that you cannot help but be surged with a feeling of home-away-from-home. Consider this with its great location, it is certainly worthy of its steep price.

The facilities there are basic, but more grandeur in its size. The swimming pool, for example, is of Olympic-size. Worthy of Ian Thorpe’s strokes, the pool in itself is a glistening sight in the sunlight. And to take your fitness regime one step further, get introduced to the state-of-the-art gym centre. Opened 24 hours, you have no excuses to neglect your body, after all that food and partying. While it’s your time-out, slacking off can cause you some major damage-control for your body once your holiday ends. So, take advantage and wow them when you get home.

Besides that, the services available there is highly commendable. They’re as attentive as your guards-on-duty and as helpful as your local telephone directory. And to enhance on this, the incorporation of technology to further enhance their services is applaudable. For one thing, the “Delighted to Serve’ one push button system on the telephone in the guestroom means getting assistance is just one button away. Along with that, they incorporated a digital alarm clock right next to the bed, so that you will not be at risk of human error. We are familiar with the time when we missed an appointment because someone forgot to wake up. So here, you have both a person and an alarm clock.

Perhaps, their emphasis on hospitality can be explained by their involvements in many community projects. This charitable streak is witnessed in their Charity Ribbon projects where the hotels under the global Marriot umbrella are encouraged to give back to the needy. Three projects have been completed so far, such as building houses for the poor in Malaysia in 2003. Along with that, they do have projects dedicated to children and blood drives. Truly selfless in their nature, this rubs off onto their view on making sure their tourists have a great a time as they can possibly be offered.

All things considered, the Renaissance Hotel seeks to impress and probably will. With such a fantastic service, an even-more fantastic location and their guests-above-self view, this stunner will ensure that your trip to Kuala Lumpur is not just another memory.

Regent Hotel

Don’t be fooled by Regent’s modest exterior. 18 years ago, many would be stunned by its outer beauty but with all the advancements and changes in trend and architecture, its architectural design is now one for the history books. It’s not exactly the best way to make a first impression and one wouldn’t expect much from the rooms after seeing the lobby, but prepare to be blown away. The rooms are tastefully furnished and still retain a fresh look. Regent Hotel also prides itself in its excellent service. They have been aptly rewarded as well and over the years they have won many service excellence awards. The service staff are well-trained and very friendly. They wear smiles on their faces and always ready to serve even at the wee hours of the morning.

The Regent Spa is a complete Health Club facility that consists of the swimming pool, gymnasium and a separate spa. The swimming pool is a free form one and wouldn’t exactly be fit for those looking for an Olympic challenge. It is mostly visited by children who prefer the cool refreshing water as opposed to the hot tropical weather that Malaysia possesses. Once in awhile, when the skies are clear and the sun shines brightly, you might be able to catch a few guests getting a tan by the poolside. The convenience of a gym is available but not many guests would jump at the idea of working out during a holiday. That’s where the spa comes in and facilities for men and women include the wet and dry sauna; hot and cold whirlpools, Jacuzzis; and beauty and massage treatments.

Being located along Jalan Bukit Bintang is what gives Regent Hotel an edge over many of its competitors. There is a plethora of activities around the area ranging from shopping, dining, sightseeing, entertainment and nightlife. Kuala Lumpur is alive 24 hours a day and you’ll be right smack in the middle of all the action at Regent Hotel. Alternatively, if you’d like to stay in for the day, there are many restaurants within the hotel that you might enjoy. Lai Ching Yuen and OGGI Restaurant and Bar come highly recommended. The former serves local Cantonese cuisine and the latter offers Italian cuisine. Light snacks are available at The Terrace and The Brasserie is where guests can be seen enjoying the International Buffet. The prices at these establishments are surprisingly reasonable as well considering its location.
