Hotel Review: Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur

Ready for the weekend?

During the last school holidays, we took the kids for a mini break at Sheraton Imperial KL. Our kids both loved it, as they get to stay in a nice hotel, play in the pool and enjoy the good food. 

Since we had a complimentary room voucher from our Starwood Privilege card, we used it to redeem the room here. Booking was straightforward via telephone, and a confirmation email was sent to us. I've also recently applied for one of those complimentary SPG cards and it worked out in our favour as we got a room in the Starwood Preferred Guest Floor. 



We got lucky...

Check out the view from our room. Our kids love the Petronas Twin Towers (they always shout out "Twin Towers" if we see them while driving in the car), hence they were delighted that we got a room with such a great view. Actually, when we were checking in, I wanted to ask the lady at reception if we could get a room with the Twin Tower view, but didn't as I thought there was no chance of me getting one since I was using a voucher to redeem the room. It must be our lucky day!



First thing they did was admire the view ;)


The deluxe room was very spacious (42m²) and bright, thanks to the wide windows in the room. The comfortable king size bed comes with 300-thread count bed sheets and hypoallergenic pillows. We also got to enjoy complimentary wifi on this floor, or else there is complimentary wifi in the common areas such as restaurants and lobby. There is also a working desk, couch and 40" LCD flat screen TV. I would say the decor here is quite classic, with Malay wood carving furnishings and Chinese design elements.





Coffee/tea making facility and lots of complimentary drinking water.



The bathroom was really spacious too, with a big bathtub on one side and a shower in another corner. The bathroom feels rather luxurious, if I may add. With kids, it's nice to have a bathtub since in the morning, it's too cold to get in the pool so they enjoyed playing in the water in the bathtub instead. My son must have requested to "take a bath" at least 3 times during our stay. Hehe.



My kids really like the big bathtub




On top of the room and bathroom, there is also a walk-in closet....for you to keep your shoes and luggage. There is also a safe as well as ironing board and iron in here. And my kids found this little space highly entertaining... for playing hide and seek. ;P



Yes, we get a view of both towers here ;)




And then, the kids spotted the pool from our room...

The pool is located on the fifth floor, next to Villa Danieli. There is a free-form pool, and also a smaller dipping pool. The pool is not huge, but sufficient to enjoy a leisurely swim or a soak in the pool. Baby C enjoyed playing in the water with her daddy, and Baby D played for 20 minutes, but I think he was more interested in sun tanning. Haha! Check him out on the deck chairs... he just sat there and enjoyed the view.





My boy knows how to enjoy the good life...



That evening, we enjoyed dinner at Essence Restaurant with our kids, and then returned to our room to find complimentary chocolates and a fruit basket. ;) How nice! Plus the view of the illuminated Twin Towers is priceless.





We also get to view the sunrise from our room in the morning. Hehe we're all still looking bleary-eyed in this photo. The kids get up quite early in the mornings and they enjoy watching sunrises in the morning, another spectacular view for us here.




We had a light breakfast at Toastina, since we were taking the kids to Celestial Court for their favourite dim sum afterwards. While exploring the hotel, we found out that you can feed the koi fish by reception area... just ask them for some fish food. Something nice for the kids to do. There is also a monorail station nearby (within walking distance), Medan Tuanku so Hubby took Baby C for a ride, and she loved it!






We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Sheraton Imperial KL. We dined at Essence, Toastina and Celestial Court - all excellent dining options plus it was convenient for us. We also redeemed our complimentary cake (voucher from Starwood Privilege card that we were trying to use up before it expired) here - we chose the carrot cake and it was very delicious.



Verdict: Nice hotel in KL with good dining options. Wish we could have stayed another day!
