This is definitely a good hotel in KL but somehow I didn't find it to be a great hotel. Possibly, there is only a thin margin between good and great. Just to give a perspective - I rate Shangri La KL as "Great".
I stayed here for only one night and my first disappointment - I didn't get early check-in even though I had given a request through my travel agent. Nevertheless, I won't blame the hotel for this. The check-in process was smooth and the hotel staff were excellent.
Unlike most of the 5 star hotels, please don't expect any big "lobby" to welcome you. The ground floor is only meant for Travel desk and to catch the lift. The hotel reception is at 2nd floor and it is small in my view. Comparing with Shangri La KL's lobby and how effectively it has been used to impress their guests, I found Traders lacking in this department.
Rest of the areas such as the quality of rooms, customer service, Sky bar, location etc are excellent. The hotel is directly connected with KLCC and hence there is a direct access to its food court, Suria Mall and acres of green parks.
I could not see Petronas Towers from my room and hence I cannot comment on the view. Please don't miss to visit Skybar.
Overall, Traders is a modern, skyscrapper building and offers a decent stay in a centralized location.More
