Part of a mixed-use complex, this new hotel occupies a prime location in the satellite town of Kelana Jaya, with direct access to two major highways – Federal Expressway and North Klang Valley Expressway – which makes it a breeze to get to Kuala Lumpur and Shah Alam, the capital of Selangor.
From the hotel, it’s also less than a 10-minute drive from the Kelana Jaya and Glenmarie Light Rail Transit stations.
The adjacent upscale Paradigm Mall offers plenty of shopping and al fresco dining options, not to mention a nine-screen cinema, adding value and choices to any work or leisure stay at this hotel.
Consistent with the hotel’s use of neutral colours, all the 300 grey-and-brown rooms feature sleek furnishings, marble-clad bathrooms and bamboo flooring – which provides tactile warmth to the feet.
I stayed on level 23 of a 30-storey building, the tallest structure in Kelana Jaya. The floor-to-ceiling glass panels in the bedroom and common space in the bathroom afforded sweeping cityscape views.
Adding to the homely ambiance was the round, wooden worktable that could be easily dragged to any spot in the room. I wish more hotels would think out of the box in ensuring guests’ stay are a comfortable one.
Residence Club rooms and suite guests have access to the New World Hotels’ signature Residence Club Living Room on level 29, which offers exclusive benefits such as complimentary breakfast, all-day refreshments and dedicated concierge service.
