The Executive Lounge
When you check in at the Hilton Petaling Jaya, you’re welcomed with open arms and assured of superb accommodation emphasizing comfort, exceptional cuisine for the gastronomically inclined and attentive customer oriented service, which has been the hallmark of this long lasting and upstanding establishment. But in today’s fast-paced age, it is no use resting on one’s laurels.
To that end Hilton Petaling Jaya recently announced the completion of refurbishment of its 554 guestrooms, executive lounge, 1000 capacity pillar-less Kristal ballroom and meeting space. The property now puts on a new look inspired by an elegant yet simplistic blend of Asian traditional design combined with subtle touches of vibrant hues. Designed by Bluwater Design Studio, the refreshed Hilton Petaling Jaya delivers the world-class guest experience the Hilton brand is renowned for, in a contemporary setting designed to offer travelers an urban retreat in the middle of Petaling Jaya’s commercial hub.
- The King Deluxe Plus Room
Tastefully designed with a palette of soothing colors, the natural-inspired motifs on grain stone, wallpaper, organic and natural lines on carpet and single tone artwork add texture and warmth to the relaxing ambience in the ballroom, meeting rooms, executive lounge and rooms. Perfectly colour coordinated to generate calmness and respite for the weary traveler or stressed out executive. All rooms feature a luxurious bed, down comforter, 42-inch LCD television, an adjustable work desk with ergonomic chair, cozy lighting, Caroma fixtures, Grohe hand showers, marble countertops, rain shower and premium bath amenities.
That’s not all. Fancy a wedding reception to remember? At the Kristal ballroom, family and friends get to toast the newly-weds in settings fit for the occasion. The Kristal ballroom is now elegantly refreshed with dark hue timber wall paneling with subtle vertical details that are complemented by rich textured silk panels and glistening crystal pendants. The sophisticated 1000 capacity pillar-less ballroom is boasted by state of the art equipment enabling it to cater to various other occasions, from meetings to seminars, corporate events, and product launches.
Peter Webster, general manager, Hilton Petaling Jaya, said, “Hilton Petaling Jaya has been an icon in Petaling Jaya for over 28 years. We are excited that the refurbishment is finally complete. This not only provides the hotel with a refreshed look but equips it with modern facilities that help continue our commitment to provide travelers with international-standard accommodation combined with Hilton’s unrivalled excellent service. We are now looking forward to the re-painting of the building’s exterior starting in the second quarter of 2013 to help create our new identity.”
