I stalked this place for too long planning for a maybe Shenzhen trip and it happened! Yay. Thanks to my bro who was there for work over the Labour Day long weekend and we decided to go and keep him company.
I’ve dined at this SPG property in Singpore countless times and always loved how nice the property seems and how impeccable everything seems. The location itself (32nd floor lobby!), the not-crowded buffets (SPG points!), and seemingly romantic lobby lounge (where I get to order my fav avocado ice cream too). All these add up to a certain level of expectation for the rooms itself.
I almost managed to stay back in 2014 but some family thingy happened and we cancelled the staycation. Bummer.
Fast forward to this year, lucky me chanced upon their flash sale (see below) and booked for 1 night. Was super excited about it – finally!!
I needed a quick 3D2N away from work and everything else in my life, so KL was a no-brainer.
I initially wanted to redeem my free night at Grand Millennium Copthorne but their room reservations decided to charge me an additional MYR450 to upgrade from the complimentary deluxe room to an Executive room with club access – when the rate difference shown on their website based on my exact dates is MYR120. When I asked why, they simply said it a special rate. Right, a specially expensive rate.
I was part of a 7D6N guided tour in Hokkaido and this was the ‘star’ hotel of the trip – and rightfully so! Beautiful hotel grounds both inside and outside :).
The hotel is under SPG’s portfolio (Sheraton I think?) and I was skeptical that the property would be nice based on some pics I saw online but my worries turned out unfounded after all.
