Hotel Review: Dorsett Kuala Lumpur

Whether you are visiting Malaysia's capital as a tourist or a local seeking a weekend city break or staycation, Dorsett Kuala Lumpur places you right in the heart of the city. The hotel is conveniently located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur's Golden Triangle as well as within walking distance to the major shopping malls such as Pavilion, Starhill and Fahrenheit 88, restaurants, entertainment spots and tourist attractions.

Dorsett Kuala Lumpur has recently undergone extensive refurbishment of its 322 room and suites, offering guests refreshed and stylish accommodation at attractive rates. We recently stayed in the newly renovated Dorsett Suite, a luxury one-bedroom suite with a separate living area and spacious bathroom with bathtub and walk-in shower cubicle. Each suite offers 45 sqm of comfort, and is well-appointed with two 40" full HD LED TVs with international channels, a writing desk overlooking the KL skyline from the 28th Floor, complimentary WiFi access, built-in wardrobes and Dorsett's range of toiletries.

The beds are large and comfortable, with plush bedding including a combination of feather and polyester pillows.

The swimming pool is located on Level 4, with heights varying from 0.45m to 1.25m. It is pretty shaded, so you can enjoy a swim session here all throughout the day. There is also a 24-hour gym, next to the pool area, accessible via your room keycard.

The hotel boasts two newly-renovated food and beverage outlets to cater to ones' palate. Checkers Cafe, located on Level 1 is the hotel's all-day dining restaurant, offering buffet breakfast from 6.00am to 10.30am daily as well as an a la carte menu and set menu for both lunch and dinner. Guests can also enjoy a coffee with pastries and cakes at Windows Lounge located adjacent to the lobby.

Value Set Dinner at Checkers Cafe - full review here. Choices include grain fed beef and lamb shoulder.

Annexed to Dorsett Kuala Lumpur is the newly opened Dorsett Residences Bukit Bintang which offers opulent, spacious accommodation. There are 14 units of Studio Queen Room, 28 units of Two-Bedroom Suite and 10 units of Two-Bedroom Premier Suite, all with a fully fitted kitchenette, dining area and living room with stunning views of the KL skyline.

The highlight of the property, is the amazing view from the rooftop infinity pool on Level 30. I could lounge here all day, while enjoying that spectacular view.

From now until 28 February 2018, guests can enjoy special Corporate rates at Dorsett Kuala Lumpur's newly renovated rooms and suites, from as low as RM280 nett for Dorsett Room, RM350 nett for Deluxe Premier and RM480 nett for Dorsett Suite.
