DoubleTree Kuala Lumpur is just 5 minutes walk from the Ampang Park LRT Station and 10 minutes walk from the iconic Petronas Twin Towers and KLCC for all of the shopping and dining options you could ever need. It boasts a 24 hour gym, an outdoor pool, 5 restaurants, over 500 rooms and is also part of a complex called The Intermark which houses a number of bars, shops and restaurants including a great supermarket called Jaya which had an amazing selection of food & drink.
We enjoyed the modern design of the hotel including the public areas, guest rooms and the lounge and upon arrival we felt at home straight away, from reception we were taken straight to the Executive Lounge on the 26th floor, with impressive views of the city and an outside terrace. We talked to the staff during check in, explaining what it means to be a vegan, and after this they made sure that we never missed out.
Our HHonors Diamond Status secured us an upgrade to an Executive Suite which had a separate lounge area, a nice office area and a rain shower (I do like a rain shower). Sadly though, all the amenities were the honey and coriander ‘Citron’ range from Crabtree & Evelyn, which aren’t vegan.
