The lobby is very impressive, its open air, well almost, it has a roof but open completely from both sides.
The hotel is resort style with different parts to the hotel in different buildings, not so suitable for business people.
My room was overlooking a beautiful golf. It was clean, quiet and had comfortable king size bed.
At check in I was offered a bellboy to take my luggage to my room but I declined. I was given a roomcard key but once I hauled my luggage along the various corridors to my room the card did not work! This meant I had to go all the way back down to checkin to ask for another card. This was very annoying. Some of the lights in the room were not working and I needed to make two phone calls to housekeeping till someone came to get them mended. Other than that I enjoyed my stay.
The downside is the high expense for the internet package. Also the location is good if you specifically want to be in Shah Alam district of KL which I did otherwise go for the city centre.
Staff are very helpful.
They operate a complimentary shuttle to various places but NOT to the airport. See attached times.
