Kuala Lumpur is the most popular city to visit in Malaysia and for a good reason, as it is jam packed full of shopping, restaurants, as well as having spectacular landmarks such as the KL Tower and Petronas Twin Towers (which used to be the tallest buildings in the world). In the middle of it all is the luxurious Grand Millennium Hotel. From there I was able to walk everywhere that I wanted to go, which I always enjoy because then I get to see more of the city, rather than constantly hopping in and out of cabs. That being said, I did not have to leave the hotel too much to enjoy myself, since I was booked into an executive club room on the 17th floor which, came with a boat load of perks. Therefore, I had plenty of reasons NOT to leave the hotel!
What is included with a Grand Millennium Executive Club Room?
An Incredible Room
The room is just beautiful with a great space allowing for a sitting area and desk, perfect for both business and luxury travelers. Once you sit on the bed, you will never want to get up from its custom-made linens and bedding. The bathroom provides you with both a bath and shower, so you have options depending on what sort of mood you are in. If you forgot any toiletries, no need to worry as you are given a full shaving and dental kit, along with the usual soaps and hair care needs. Another great perk is the complimentary pressing/laundry, which you get up to three garments per day. I gave them my clothes and came back to my room later, to find them already hanging in my closet. This is an immense perk, which is really rare to find in hotels. Check out is also pushed back to 2pm (I hate 11am check outs!), so you can sleep in your last day or take a dip in the pool before you head out!
Club Lounge Access
Of course, a huge advantage to staying in a Grand Millennium Club Room is access to the Club Lounge. You can eat the breakfast here or downstairs at the larger buffet in The Mill. I wanted to see what both was like, so I ate in the lounge one morning and the restaurant the next. The restaurant has more of a selection and an omelette station, but is a little busier so if you want a more relaxing, quiet breakfast then you are better off eating in the lounge. I enjoyed both, as long as I am being fed, I am happy!! Throughout the day, you can return to the lounge for soft drinks or if you just want a quiet place to hangout and socialize.
Later, you can go back to the club lounge for some evening cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Relax with a beverage and grab some food from a wide range of items such as fish, sandwiches, sausage, chicken, fruit and desserts.
It doesn’t matter what room you book, you still get access to the pool and fitness center. The pool is outside, so you can lounge around all day while soaking up the sun. The atmosphere makes you feel like you are on a tropical island, making you forget that you are in the middle of a busy city!
Additional Special Offer Options
The Grand Millennium hotel is constantly coming up with great offers for any hotel guest to purchase during their stay. I received the Wellness Spa Package deal where I was able to choose one treatment per day from a selection of facial and body packages below.
30 Minute Mini Facial Treatment
30 Minute Eye Treatment for Puffiness & Dark Circles
30 Minute Rose Scrub Treatment
30 Minute Seaweed Wrap
I went for the dark circle treatment my first day, I have to avoid getting those raccoon eyes!! I didn’t have enough time on my second day, but I probably would have went for the rose scrub treatment, as it sounds like the perfect way to relax. The spa also has a sauna and beautiful Jacuzzi to help you unwind from a day of sightseeing.
