We've stayed at this hotel since the days it was Pan Pacific, a few times when we visit KL because my husband is a golfer. The rooms are spacious and some of them overlook the golf course. The breakfast buffet is extensive, offering Western, Japanese, Chinese, Malay and Indian choices.
However there were 2 downsides this recent stay. We had a shock when we got our bill. When we checked at reception, we were told phone calls to local mobile phones are charged at MYR 4 a minute (US$1.18). These mobile rates are not displayed anywhere in the room and we had no warning - imagine paying US$20 for a 16 minute phone call!
Golfing on weekends and public holidays is also a problem. The Glenmarie golf course is a private course and members have enacted rules - minimum 3 golfers per flight on weekends and public holidays, plus almost double green fees. The proshop will not take a name to make up a flight, but insists that the hotel has to find 3 guests to play. The concierge desk was quite helpful and found another couple to play on 1 day, but other days there were no other hotel guests who wanted to golf. The hotel is quite far from town, but near the industrial area of Shah Alam. The only advantage of staying here for us is the golf course, and if our next visit to KL is on a weekend or public holiday, we would stay somewhere else.
