Stayed there last week for 2 nights during the year end holiday, and it was very crowded. Stayed in Tower 2 room # 8818 not too nice as located far on the back and close to the generator so very noisy especially at night.
The room is quite big rather than the Tower 1 rooms. They have safety deposit box, tea/coffee facility, hair dryer in room so very nice. They set up the twin beds as hollywood style; put the two of them together so can fit for 3 adults. Room & bathroom are clean and well maintained!
From Tower 2 to the plaza is quite a far walk, there's a closeby 24-hr 1 meter cafe selling porridge, friend rice, snacks, juices with better price than others. Everything in Genting is very pricey, you can spend at least RM 15 per meal for just a chicken rice or wantan mee, and the taste is so so. There's a better foodcourt on Level 2B, Selera Medan Kopitiam with various of foods; Chinese food; Thai food, Vegetarian food, Claypot, etc with better price than on the 1st level of First World Plaza. Try the vegetarian resto there, their fried rice is great @ RM10.
Overall is quite okay if you'd like to enjoy the cool breeze and the theme parks, don't stay more than 2 nights there, you'll get bored.
