We are I guess so-called "good customers" as we are staying in the Le Meridian KL every year since five year.
It is a good place even though there are more luxury and more modern places in KL. It is also quite annoying that prices do really vary a lot. You can get a suite for less than 600++ but also the smallest room, if you are unlucky resp. booked to late. So early booking can really be a big plus. Nevertheless, this applies to most hotels nowadays....
We always tried to get a suit or club floor room, if affordable as the benefits like free wifi, drinks and snacks is quite nice and worth paying (a bit) extra.
The hotel rooms are ok, might need some major makeover in latest 4-5 years. The lobby has just been renovated and looks a lot better now. Smokers got their lounge
The pool is "shared" with Hilton and is really nice.
Staff is nice and very helpful, but somehow every time our invoice was not correct. I am talking only about small amounts, but you better cross-check carefully upon check out as they sometimes mixed things up.
The best is the location, if you don't have a car, and don't want to be stuck in the nowadays most of the time really bad traffic downtown, this is the best place to stay. Taxi, LRT, KTM, KLIA Train, busses etc. you find all of them in KL Sentral just next door. Plus there is a taxi counter where you have to pay a bit more, but don't get cheated badly.
There are more hotels around, like Hilton, aloft (opened in March 2013) and soon St. Regis will open in the same neighborhood, so we will see how this area will develop regarding hotels. It's already designated to be the next hot-spot of KL.
We will stay in aloft in April 2013 and will let you know how about it.
