Stayed with friends for a weekend break away from KL. Before I go on I must be fair and state it was a public holiday so the hotel was busy. Real busy. First off, finding the hotel is pretty easy: Its the tallest building next to the biggest mall. So food options are plentiful on the doorstep. Car parking underneath the hotel with direct access to the lobby is convenient. I think the signage for the car park may have been done for a different hotel and sent to the Zenith by accident but they put them up anyway. We had adjoining rooms and booking and check in was fairly straight forward and the reception staff friendly, if still seeming like they were working things out on their second week. Room was a decent size, bathroom was large, with an excellent shower. Bed very comfortable and spacious. Breakfast and food generally was good. They provided a nice wooden cot eventually after ringing three times to check it had arrived. It hadn't but thanks for asking!
The main dining area is dry but they helpfully relocated us to the italian upstairs where you could order beer and wine. service was friendly and efficient, though the staff were still learning and needed a little confidence eg bought me a beer I was hanging for, lad handed it to me but before I could take it a lovely lady whisked it away for 10 minutes whilst she found me a beer mat. Nice thought but give me the beer! The reason for the three stars is the pool is simply too small for the hotel and the lifts are like buses. One comes every 20 minutes. Really, they are terrible. At breakfast the queue for people trying to get breakfast and those waiting for a lift just merged in to a mass of bodies. It's a great conference hotel, but for a weekend break hit the Hyatt.
