Hotel Review: Grand Millennium KL Hotel

I stayed in Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur Hotel for 5D4N during my trip to KL for the Tourism Malaysia’s Mega Familiarisation Programme 2015 (aka MyFest 2015) together with several Singapore bloggers and I had to admit, the hotel is indeed a strategically located 5-star hotel! You can practically get to almost all the big shopping malls just by walking! Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur LobbyThe 2-floor lobby (24 hour reception) has strong wifi and became a place for all of us to gather and do our social media postings while waiting for one another. I didn’t get myself a SIM card during my trip there, and you can easily imagine how much I hate to leave the hotel!

Inside Deluxe Room

I was given a Deluxe Room which is the most basic room out of the 7 types of rooms and suites in Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur. And guess what? The basic room is luxurious enough for me to enjoy and unwind alone. From what I understand, it is considered one of the best hotels in Kuala Lumpur and I can say it is indeed so! Grand Millennium KL Deluxe Room PanoramaIn a glance, (the bed looks a bit squashed in this panorama photo) the Deluxe Room is spacious and with floor-to-ceiling windows and offer the nice city skyline of Kuala Lumpur. The room uses a neutral colour palette of soft browns and creams, which have this grounding effect on a room making it feel secure (Colour Therapy). Grand Millennium KL Deluxe Room 2Besides the Queen-size comfortable bed, the air-conditioned room provides in-room dining menu for room service, mini snack bar with complimentary water (not the Evian la!) and refrigerator filled with canned drinks. From what I understand, you can even request for custom-made linens and bedding Pillow menu! Grand Millennium KL Deluxe Room CabinetIn the cabinet, the plush terry bathrobes, hair dryer, laundry bag, bedroom slippers, iron + ironing board and safety box are all available for use in the room. Housekeeping service is also available twice daily. Grand Millennium KL Tiffany YongThis is one of few hotels where I got to stay so many days in as a blogger. Previously, my stay in each hotel were at most 3D2N or even 1 night and we got to move on to the next destination. I had the chance to explore and enjoy the facilities and also take loads of selfies! Grand Millennium KL Deluxe Room BathroomThe bathroom is also elegant and comfortable. With a separate bathtub (Yeah!) and walk-in shower, I like how the bathroom has this simple build-in compartment for tissue box. This might seem trivial for most guests, but for me, it’s all this little convenience that made my stay enjoyable.

For toiletries, the hotel provides 2 x toothbrush kit, shower cap, vanity kit, shaving kit, soap bar, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion. Grand Millennium KL Tiffany Yong 2Unwinding in the bathtub while watching some Hong Kong drama online became my favourite past time for that few days. >.<

Other Rooms in Grand Millennium Hotel

Besides the Deluxe Room, there are 6 other types of rooms which total up to 468 rooms in Grand Millennium Hotel KL – Grand Deluxe Room, Executive Club Room, Executive Club Plus, Executive Suite, Imperial Suite and Presidential Suite. I requested for a little inspection tour to check out the features of other rooms and facilities. Grand Millennium KL Grand Deluxe Room PanoramaI’m not going to make myself jealous by including too many photos of other rooms, but here are some of the rooms in a glance. This Grand Deluxe Room has double beds and a slightly different design (checkered walls) from the Deluxe Room.Grand Millennium KL Executive Club Room PanoramaIf you stay in the Executive Club Room, you will get to enjoy the Club benefits and get to check in /out privately at the Club Lounge.  Grand Millennium KL Executive Suite PanoramaAs the rest of the rooms were occupied, the Executive Suite was the “highest level” room that I got to tour. It took me three panorama photos to cover the features. So it’s easy to see how big it is. With its own dining table, coffee maker, office table and sofa, guest can hold meetings with clients here.Grand Millennium KL Executive Suite Bedroom PanoramaThe Executive Suite uses a lot of red in their decoration which increases enthusiasm and stimulate energy. Grand Millennium KL Executive Suite Bathroom PanoramaThe Executive Suite Bathroom was jaw-dropping beautiful with the white marble design. The mirrors made the bathroom bigger and grander.

Breakfast @ The Mill Café

Grand Millennium KL The Mill Breakfast Buffet 2I was spoilt for choice at The Mill Café. With just the cereals, there’s almost a dozen types, same for salad ingredients, fruits and cold meats.Grand Millennium KL The Mill Breakfast Buffet 4There’s also pastries and breads with assorted jams for those who prefer an American breakfast. If not, you can choose to make your own noodle at the Noodle Station.Grand Millennium KL The Mill Breakfast Buffet 3There’s also egg station and pasta, Chinese Dim Sum, Chinese porridge with salted egg and century egg, western niblles like sausages etc.Grand Millennium KL The Mill Breakfast Buffet 1I realised that I tend to prefer the local food when I’m staying in that country. So when I’m in Kuala Lumpur, I had more of their Nasi Lemak, Fried rice, curries and Pratas for breakfast. Grand Millennium KL The Mill Tiffany YongI tried to have a bit of everything. But the one I went back for a second serving was still the prata with curry and dahl!

When I first enter the Health Club, I was in awe by the service available. This is actually the first time that I had the opportunity to try out the service without rushing! Previously, my schedules were all packed with activities and events that by the time I was back, the service had already close for the day.  🙁Grand Millennium KL Health Club featuresI was actually not allowed to take any photos of the Jacuzzi area, but luckily, as there weren’t any other guest, I secretly snapped a shot to share with you guys. 😛

There is no Wi-Fi in that area, so I had a short digital detox by alternating myself between the hot and cold jacuzzi. The jacuzzi is separated by gender, so this is the ladies’ section! There is also the sauna room and massage room if you want to treat yourself to one of the indulgent signature body and face treatments or traditional massages and be pampered by skilled spa therapists.Grand Millennium KL Gym PanoramaLevel 3 is where the Surau (worship room), Gym and Swimming Pool are. I did not bring any sports shoes along for my trip, so I did not really take notice of the Fitness Centre.
