The Intercontinental in KL is as you’d expect - plush, comfortable, easy to get to (opposite the Ampang Park LRT station) and in a good location for the Twin Towers and the Suria Shopping Centre. Staff were very helpful and recognised my IHG status with an upgrade, which is always handy! I really enjoyed my stay (albeit for one night), however the reason I can’t give the full five stars is down to:
- Bedsheets had two sets of visible black (motor oil?!) marks on them
- A garment from the previous occupants had been left in the wardrobe
- One of the bathroom lights was behaving more like a strobe at times
- A used pair of slippers had, I assume, been discarded under the chest of drawers and not removed.
Of course, none of these things had any influence on the quality of my stay, however one would feel that a hotel of this standard should pay a little more attention to detail than was evident. That said, I would still happily visit again and recommend the IC to fellow travellers.
