I was actually in Malaysia on vacation not business, but a supplier of our recommended the E&O Hotel in Georgetown. This hotel is a colonial masterpiece that has been maintained impeccably for whatever glory years existed when the British ruled here. The service and staff are wonderful, and the food is excellent. There is a buffet for breakfast and dinner loaded with Penang's famous cuisine. While not eating, you can tour some of the many Buddhist temple complexes on the Island. The art treasures of Asia seem to be really concentrated on this Island. The rooms in the hotel face the ocean and on the other side, you can walk through neighborhoods of interesting local markets, food, message, bars and night life. Its a place not to be missed.
