Stayed a night in the double room.
The location of this hotel in Permas Jaya is a bit awkward for a 5-star hotel as it seats in the middle of a local comercial area and has a school located opposite its premises. Getting here would be a bit of a challenge as there are no signboards to guide you. Our GPS do not have its coordinates (or maybe it needs an upgrade?). However, just try to look for Jusco Permas Jaya and you should not miss the hotel which is clearly visible from the main road.
Staff are extremely helpful. Check in was OK.
The room was wonderful! It smells nice, is spacious and clean.
I had my best shower experience ever in a hotel with the rainshower which was delivered with consistent pressure. The Tokyo Milk toiletries were oh-so-refreshing.
Sleep quality was good. The standard pillows were too soft to my liking but the extra pillow in the closet was firm enough.
Room service keeps up to Marriot/Renaissance standard (we ordered pizza and soup for our late dinner). I wished I had more time to enjoy all the various food offered at breakfast at the BLD.
Getting into town from the hotel would be a bit trickier than getting to Pasir Gudang...took me almost 30 mins. Nevertheless, it has been a wonderful experience staying in this hotel, which I wish to repeat.
