Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur - Everything Splendour At Its Doorstep

It was my first time staying at Grand Millenium in Kuala Lumpur. The capital city of Malaysia has many new infrastructures that includes the new MRT line but the construction around it has resulted in many road diversions and consequently massive traffic congestion. Can you imagine, our car was just twenty feet away. Yet, the congestion took us about half an hour just to get to the entrance. Literally, it was so close yet so far!

I was grateful to have stayed at Grand Millenium Kuala Lumpur because the traffic was so unnerving. I am looking forward to seeing the new developments ready and let's hope the traffic gets better once all the construction ends!

Grand Millenium Kuala Lumpur is probably by far the most convenient amongst the many luxury hotels around. It is just a stone's throw away from renowned upmarket Pavilion Kuala Lumpur shopping mall which is connected to Fahrenheit88 mall across by an underpass. Even when it rained and I got an umbrella from the concierge, I did not get too soaked. Partly because there was a connecting construction shelter. One can shop without having to sweat or beat the jam. Location wise, it was first-rate.

Their warm lightings, sparkly Christmas decorations and attentive doorman were spectacular.

The air though got me into runny and blocked nose. I would have been able to appreciate its huge gym and stunning swimming pool if there were air purifiers around or had they vacuumed as thoroughly as I do. Honestly, I could sense dusty and stale air attributed to the fully carpeted and air-conditioned hotel. It did not do justice to its breakfast spread at The Mill too. I love their 'no bedroom slippers' policy and the exuberant carpeting but with blocked and runny nose, how can I indulge in the smell of tasty food? Seriously, I did not even in the mood to take photos. Let alone eat without feeling something is going to come out from your nose. That got me into ennui and it was a waste to not be able to enjoy the gym, pool and many other facilities when my goal there was to relax.

If I am going to set foot in there again, I would probably make sure everything is vacuumed from my room to The Mill. I would prefer if they maintain their glossy marble at the lobby. 😉
