We stayed at the Westin KL as our friends recommended it to us, due to it's excellent location. And it was! Right across the Pavilion Mall and on Bukit Bintang we didn't go short on options to dine or have a simple coffee. Also, if you're staying in this area, don't forget to visit Jalan Alor at night, just to enjoy the atmosphere, eat or snack on some local foods and fruits.
The hotel is already more than a decade old, but they managed to preserve the level of luxury. Of course, some things could be updated, for example the bathroom (especially the toilet) and the swimming pool area. We found the pool area a bit outdated and not really clean. The towels were old, the lounge cushions we're stained and there we're bugs in and around the pool. Also, it's quite noisy from some type of machine humming hard...the music could not mask that.
Everything else was great. We booked a room with club access and the Club Lounge was excellent. We enjoyed the cocktail hour, as the snacks were quite tasty. Children are also very much welcome. The staff was very nice to them and our kids enjoyed the kids club and the lounge as well. Breakfast was good, as you could choose from three locations: the Living room, Chinese restaurant (where they serve pork) and the Club Lounge.
We also received a late check-out at 4 pm, as we requested one as we had an evening flight and could enjoy the Lounge for another half hour. Very much appreciated!
