I want to surprise my wife, it is her birthday. She has been kind to me and always encourages me when I need it the most. I am an Accor platinum member, and it gives me the benefits of upgrade my stay to a suite for paying the regular room rate. This is something that I never use before, and thanks to last year’s intensive travels that I obtain platinum status. I never plan to have such a level, but somehow I am qualified. So after browsing many hotels from Accors, I am torn between Pullman Kuala Lumpur and Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara.
I went to Pullman Kuala Lumpur before, so I know the room is indeed really nice. But for Sofitel, I have to depend on the pictures and some reviews on the internet. Something good that I am an active google maps review, so people often answer my questions fast.
Difficult Choice to Choose
After a long and careful selection, I decided to go to Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara for two reasons. First, it is one of five stars hotels in Kuala Lumpur and is located at its heart. Second, it famous for its French food, decorations, as well as a right bathtub. Their services are recommended by many people on google maps.
I call the hotel that I will be arriving around 1 PM after my meeting, but somehow that day, my session ends early than I plan. So I give a bit of luck to come to a hotel and ask if the rooms ready. They actually prepare my room early, and I am allowed to check-in at 10 AM. They are doing their best to accommodate my needs, like carrying my bags to the rooms and asking me if there is anything else that I need to make my stay memorable.
I told the receptionist that I am here to celebrate my wife’s birthday, and I have a coupon given by Accor. I request a chocolate cake for diabetes, and they say it is no problem. They will send to my room the next day. After my check-in complete, I quickly go to the room to prepare something special for my wife.
The Suite Room
I am really astonished by the room. The room is so big, there is even a divider between the bedroom and the small living room. Not to mention there is a small coffee machine for me to enjoy. The bed! Oh my god! It is really comfortable and lovely bed covers. It is silky and soft. Trust me, this bed is dangerous. Just lay down for 10 mins, and I am already sleeping soundly. Surprise feature from Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara!
When I see the bathtub, I can imagine how my son will love the bathtub so much that it is more significant than an average bathtub that I saw. The hotel has a good toiletries brand, Lanvin. I have no idea at first, but after I post to my Twitter, I found out that it is actually an excellent French brand. Turns out that I really like the smell, which I request an extra bottle from cleaner whenever they clean the room, they give me gladly (probably I ask in a very respectful manner).
I decided to check the swimming pool of Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara, once I settle down my bag. It has a kids section and also an adult one. You can request mineral water for free and a towel. It does have a water massage where it uses water pressure to massage your back. My wife really enjoys this so much.
Surprise from Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara
Thanks for the Accorplus membership. I have a 50% discount for meals in restaurants. So we often eat inside the hotel rather than go out to eat. The waiters really friendly and often suggest excellent food for us. I will do the food review after this post. After we have fun in the swimming pool, we decide to rest in the room. Then I realize there is something special in the room. Turns out it is a chocolate cake for my wife’s birthday from Accor hotels. I really love my stay in Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara
