After a multi-million ringgit makeover, Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur is poised to become a key location for locals and travellers.
Known as “the grand dame” of hotels, Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur was relaunched early this year after an extensive transformation.
Part of the Marriot International portfolio hotels, it is poised to become a gathering place for travellers and locals. hat is thanks to its combination of a multi million ringgit facelift, refreshed dining concepts and strategic location on the main artery of the capital city – situated along Jalan Sultan Ismail – while connected to the Dang Wangi heritage area.
“As our most global brand within the Marriott International portfolio, Sheraton is recognised and trusted by guests worldwide,” said Mike Fulkerson, Vice President, Brand and Marketing Asia Pacific, Marriott International. “We are ecstatic to see new energy injected into Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur because this hotel has deep roots in the ocal community, and we want to further build connections with travellers.”
According to Frank Beck, Managing Director of Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur: “We strive to create everlasting memories that make us part of our guests’ lives while setting the bar for uncompromising service to offer guests an unrivalled stay and dining experience.”
After extensive renovations, the Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur hotel has increased its room inventory to 398 rooms, offering guests a collection of Deluxe Rooms, Club Rooms, and Suites, all refreshed with bright and contemporary finishings.
The Club Lounge on the 38th floor overlooking the KL Tower has also been reimagined with wanderlust hues that promote the aesthetic of purposeful living, allowing the hotel guests to relax in a restful ambiance. Checking in for the weekend, yours truly experienced the afore-mentioned qualities … and much more.
With the newly refreshed interiors of its dining venues, the hotel is now ideal as a key location to meet, eat and drink. Chinese restaurant Celestial Court has long been the place to dine for dignitaries who seek quality cuisine and welcoming service. The elevated setting is great for celebratory banquets, corporate functions and gatherings with family and friends.
Villa Danieli, a standalone Italian restaurant – and my personal favourite – recreates the Tuscany villa dining experience. It has welcomed a new chef, Federico Bozzo from Genoa, Italy to interpret traditional Italian dishes while using local Malaysian produce.
Meanwhile, The Pavilions Lounge & Bar has been redesigned to showcase a combination of modern fixtures and heritage characteristics. Its living room area has been transformed into a new library-styled bar area with built-in wine cellar and cigar humidor. Striking a perfect balance with its carefully selected interiors, this quiet corner inspires an intimate environment for discussions and informal meetings around the golden dome bar.
The hotel also offers meeting and banqueting facilities including a Junior and Grand Ballroom, Boardroom and 13 meeting rooms that have been fitted with stylish new furnishings and state-of-the-art AV equipment. A stone’s throw away from KLCC while providing access to a buzzing historical area with eateries housed in pre-war houses, Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur allows guests to indulge in the best of both worlds.
