Great new hotel that is located in central KLCC, near Intercon and minutes walk from the twin tower. Although there are some construction going on surrounding the area.
What I like about this hotel is the high rise, so your room will have a pretty good view. The 1st floor is adjoined with office tower so you go up to level 40 for lobby and restaurant, level 39 is gym unfortunately it was closed when I was there so didnt check it out.
The room is simple, light and spacious. Great walking wardrobe with standard amenities like ironing board, iron, hair dryer. The bed is of course by Westin Heavenly Bed as Elements is a baby brother of Westin. The work desk is good, simple and clean with not so much clutter. There is a small kitchen area but no stove only on the higher studio and 1 microwave and also minibar that is empty as you need to order what you need from the room service (though I didnt recall seeing any mini bar menu I can choose from. The hotel doesn’t provide bottled water which is good to save environment, though I’m a bit skeptic so instead the sink has built in 3M water filter system which I did drink for the last 3 days and I didn’t have any issue at all. But otherwise you can ordered bottled water if you need chargeable. The hotel is about a year old, it was supposed to be residential but converted into hotel mid way. Though new, there are small defects, paints and chips that I feel can be retouched to make the product more refined. But service is great, the front desk called in to check after 10 minutes I enter the room if everything is ok and if I needed any help.
One thing that was weird, I usually keep my towels and dont need to wash them when I’m staying for 3 days. So I did my hanging towels neatly and didn’t put on the floor. On the first and second day, they changed all of my towels and also my barely used soap was replaced, so was amenities that I feel can still be use for another day. In fact on the second day, they left the soap and added another,.... soap. I guess staff training is needed, as in their card they say they will only replace when towels are on the floor.
Another feat, is the water pressure and the hot water system, the rain shower is for me just a gimmick does not provide a good pressure to the usual pressure I enjoyed in many hotels, the water temperature tends to go up and down between cold and sudden hot, I think they have small tank or just need a cycle in between. The soaps and lotion by the way are non chemical which is great, the soap and shampoo is provided in a dispenser, which I feel is more of like Ibis approach?
The switches and multi electric plug in the room helps, note there is only one International plug by the desk, the rest is Malaysian standard plug which you need a converter. By the bed there is a USB port which provides a good charging speed.
They only have one restaurant and no bar, I only did in-room dining which the kwey tiao was fantastic and had it for 2 days straight. The breakfast menu is fair, but not overly the top for me but they did offer fresh press juice that you can mix and match, a menu may help to guide diners. The restaurant being on level 40, has a great sweeping view of the city, you can actually see the tip of twin tower and also the newly build second tallest building in KL - the signature tower which is actually almost completed.
All and all it was a good stay, I had a good sleep and enjoyed the convenient of the location. So, yes I would come back.
