Doubletree makes debut with Crown Princess in Kuala Lumpur

HILTON Hotel’s upscale Doubletree brand is set to open its first property in Malaysia at the beginning of July.

The Crown Princess Hotel in Kuala Lumpur is currently undergoing a multi-million dollar redesign to reopen as the Doubletree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur City Centre.

The 540-room hotel is located in the heart of Malaysia’s capital city rising high from within Kuala Lumpur’s Golden Triangle district, just northeast of the city centre.

The property is close to the city’s best shopping malls, dining and entertainment with the world famous Petronas Twin Towers and Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre within a 10-minute walk. The shopping mecca of Bukit Bintang is only a short taxi ride away.

The hotel aims to offer the perfect mix of convenience and comfort to business and leisure travellers alike with attractive guest rooms, suites and executive accommodations providing a long list of pampering amenities with a backdrop of the breathtaking city or mountain views overlooking the Klang valley.

Each room benefits from LCD television, luxurious Sweet Dreams bedding and high-speed internet access and guests have full use of the many Golden Triangle hotel amenities including the indoor pool and whirlpool, concierge services and fully-equipped fitness centre.

There is also an abundance of dining from authentic Malaysian cuisine to Italian and a café-style ‘grab and go’ concept.

And the hotel boasts superior business amenities including more than 1,850 sq m of flexible meeting space including two magnificent ballrooms and a state-of-the-art business centre.

“The Doubletree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur City Centre is perfectly suited to meet the needs of this dynamic business centre.

“From China to Thailand and now Malaysia, our development pipeline for the Doubletree by Hilton brand continues to grow throughout Asia as a lucrative branding opportunity that is flexible for both new-build and conversion purposes in the upscale, full-service hotel arena,” said Dave Horton, senior vice president – brand management for Doubletree Hotels.
