Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is one of the fastest developing cities in Asia. Set to be a main business destination for all of south east Asia, Kuala Lumpur is also home to many excellent business hotels that are surprisingly cheap. For corporate travel to Kuala Lumpur, any of these three best KL business hotels will suit any corporate traveler, and make your next business trip a little more fun.
Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur – A wonderful upscale hotel that would still be cheap at double the price is Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur. Located in the center of Kuala Lumpur, Le Meridien caters to business travelers with data ports, wireless Internet Access, IDD telephone with two lines, flatscreen TV with cable or satellite, and in-room safe with power socket.
Private meeting rooms are available, and there’s a Business Center and secretarial services available. You can also enjoy casual dining at one of the hotel’s five eateries, or a five-course lunch or dinner at Prime Steak restaurant or Favola, the hotel’s Italian restaurant. For breakfast meetings too, Latest Recipe serves an excellent buffet breakfast or a la carte.
Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur is located at 2 Jalan Stesen Sentral, Kuala Lumpur.
The Westin Kuala Lumpur – The Westin Kuala Lumpur is a five star hotel that has 443 rooms as well as an Executive Suites area for longer business stays. Each room is decorated in contemporary style and has a large work station, broadband internet, flat screen TVs with satellite and DVD players, mini bar and in-room safe.
The hotel is located in the Bukit Bintang area of KL, so perfect for client meetings, as well as for superb shopping and restaurants and easy access around the city. The Westin Executive Club Lounge on the 33rd floor is a wonderful place to relax or to entertain clients, particularly with its stunning views over the city. The hotel has secretarial service, a business services center, a gourmet market and a state of the art gym.
For entertaining clients or client meetings, don’t miss Prego, an Italian restaurant that serves lunch, dinner and late night snacks. Or, why not meet your business partners for a drink at Qba, a Latin American bar and cafe.
The Westin Kuala Lumpur is at 199 Jalan Bukit Bintang.
Royale Chulan Hotel and Residences – For a more traditional Malaysian experience, a business trip to the Royale Chulan Hotel is a must. Designed in a Terengganu style, the Royale Chulan is all massive staircases, indoor fountains and dark wood, which gives the hotel a majestic old colonial feel to it – and says “luxury”.
There are 300 guest rooms as well as 95 apartments for long-term business trips, but the true piece de resistance for business travelers is the Royal Club Lounge, which has meeting rooms, professional service and internet access for all business guests. There’s also a large ballroom, that seats a couple of thousand, if you have a large-scale luncheon or black tie business event to plan. The hotel even has a fully-equipped gym and spa if you need a break from corporate responsibilities to pamper yourself a little.
For dining, the Royale Chulan’s L’Heritage serves superb French cuisine, the Bunga Emas has some of the city’s best five-star Malay cuisine, or just for a business meeting over drinks, relax at The Heritage Club.
The Royale Chulan Hotel and Residences can be found at 5 Jalan Conlay, Kuala Lumpur.
