PETALING JAYA (Oct 20): Sheraton Hotels and Resorts has opened the Sheraton Petaling Jaya at Jalan Utara, next to the Pinnacle Petaling Jaya shopping mall.
Owned by J&C Homes Holdings Sdn Bhd, the newly built hotel is a 20-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur and a 45-minute drive from the KL International Airport; the Asia Jaya LRT (light rail transit) station, which is part of the Kelana Jaya line, is five minutes’ walk away.
“Petaling Jaya continues to cement its role as a key business hub for Greater KL and we are delighted to collaborate with J&C Homes Holdings to expand options for both business and leisure travellers,” said Marriott International area market vice-president of Singapore, Malaysia and the Maldives Rivero Delgado in a press release.
“Sheraton is Marriott’s most global brand, and we are excited to expand the footprint here in Malaysia after many years. We look forward to once again showcasing the Sheraton brand’s service excellence in the region,” she added.
The hotel comprises 253 premium guest rooms and suites equipped with Le Grand Bain bath amenities custom made for Sheraton by spa product pioneer Byredo.
Club Room guests will have exclusive access to the 300 sq m Sheraton Club Lounge at the 31st floor.
“We are convinced this is the beginning of a new hospitality benchmark for the local market. The spirit of Sheraton is best represented in our commitment to go beyond, empowering associates to forge a deeper connection with our guests. We are committed to providing the highest standard of service, from grand gestures to small thoughtful touches,” said Christopher Moore, general manager of Sheraton Petaling Jaya.
