The flight was delayed and I was very tired for the long journey. Upon arriving at the airport, my principal is already waiting to send me to the hotel.
I just came to Miri a week before and this is my second trip here in two weeks. I was informed that the hotel I stayed before was full. So they are checking me in Imperial Palace Hotel which is located slightly in the middle of the town.
Arriving at the hotel I was impressed with the spacious lobby. There are a few sofas for you to relax while waiting for the room key to be issued. The restaurant is located next to the lobby as well. If you fancy freshly brewed coffee there is a gourmet cafe just outside the hotel entrance.
The room key is a smart card and they issued two cards for you since my room comes with King size bed. Entering the room, it is nicely furnished with modern furniture. It is not as big as the room booked for me during my previous visit at another hotel but sufficient for a couple with one kid.
There is a flat screen TV with selective satellite channels, a spacious working table (I loved the working table), complimentary mineral water and coffee makin facilities. It is even better when they also provide you with iron and ironing board. If you have valuables with you there is an electronic safe in the closet. For the Muslim you will appreciate the given prayer times for the month as reference together with prayer mat. And there is the bible for reading as well.
I stayed there for four nights and it was a pleasant stay. Breakfast is provided at the coffee house and their selection of international and local food is reasonably good. Those who prefers to eat dinner can use their room service or enjoy their offerings at the coffee house. I did try their seafood chowder and really like it!
Patrons who are health concious can use the in house gym with professional trainer to assist you. They also have a small sauna room separated for men and women together with a jacuzzi pool that is 30 metre long.
Since the hotel is situated in the busier area of Miri, you can find a lot of entertainment outlet within five minutes walking. There is also a supermarket located nearby and a number of local banks as well.
