Review: Hilton Doubletree Kuala Lumpur

For my short trip to Kuala Lumpur, I stayed at the Hilton Doubletree. As a Category 2 hotel, it’s only 10k Hilton points per night, which is a great deal, especially as a Gold member when you can get free breakfast and lounge access.

The Hilton Doubletree is attached to the Intermark Mall, so you actually go through the mall to get to the hotel. It’s close to the Ampang Park metro station, so it’s relatively easy to get around using public transit if you wish. (There’s also a temple not too far from here that serves an awesome vegetarian lunch buffet that’s super cheap)

As a Gold member, I was escorted up to the Executive Lounge to check in. The check-in process took quite a while, which may have been because someone else booked the room for me and wasn’t actually staying there…

Anyway, no upgrade on room besides getting lounge access, but that’s about all I would need/want when I’m traveling by myself. My room was a standard, well-appointed hotel room in Asia by a Western brand.

The hotel had a pretty nice fitness area. I’m not 100% sure on this, but I believe it acted as a health club/gym that outside people could pay to have access to.

The executive lounge¬†offered both breakfast and evening canapes and cocktails. I don’t really drink, but apparently, free alcohol is kinda a big deal in Malaysia because of alcohol taxes. I enjoyed eating the snacks, though.

Breakfast in the restaurant was pretty crazy. The restaurant is massive and has a number of different sections representing different cuisines. For example, there’s a Western section with things like pancakes, eggs, bacon, and waffles, but there’s also a Chinese section with dim sum, a Malaysian section, and an Indian section. This was by far the biggest breakfast buffet that I’ve been to.

Overall, I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It’s a great redemption value in the Hilton program, and if you’re a Gold member, you can get access to an awesome free breakfast and lounge access. I would happily stay here again if I find myself in KL.

    Is this the best Hilton value in the world, assuming Gold status? I think the value (10K pts) and room condition is amazing.

    Did you get the warm and fresh baked cookies upon check-in? Love the hotel, exe lounge and the breakfast room. We always stay here, every time we visit KL. Walking distance to PETRONAS and KL Suria Mall.
