Le Meridien Kota Kinabalu is not a new hotel, however, I agree whole heartedly with dag2546 review. Le Meridien KK is really a great hotel. Staff is amazing and knows what customer service is all about.
We booked online a club room (seaview) for three nights stay from the hotel website. We asked for a higher floor and non smoking room. Upon checked-in (May 18) we were delighted that our request was honored. We were given room no. 1233 (highest floor) which on the same floor (12th) as the Le Meridien Club.
The service level at Le Meridien Club was outstanding. Asmah went above and beyond to make sure we were welcomed and comfortable in the club lounge.
Suwardi from Circle restaurant downstairs was another example of friendly staff at this hotel.
In short, Le Meridien is a great hotel. Location is perfect. It has big rooms, attentive, helpful and friendly staff. It is definitely worth the upgrade to the club rooms!
We had a fantastic time in KK. We will be back!
