In a competitive industry like hospitality, catching up to the momentum of things no longer makes the cut. Going above and beyond sits at the centre focus of Sheraton Petaling Jaya, giving guests an exquisitely luxurious experience unparalleled to many other business hotels. I found myself at the lobby of the 5-star hotel one busy Saturday afternoon, merrily decked with Christmas decorations in the heat of the year-end holidays. Despite the buzzing atmosphere of the check-in counters, I was attended to and led to my room within minutes upon my arrival.
Located on the higher half of the building, nothing could have really prepared me for the stunning, unobstructed skyline views of the city center that greeted me as I walked into my room on the Club floor. From the cloud-like fluffy robes to the cocooning relaxation beds, it was a tough mind-battle between indulging in a relaxing stay in or succumbing to the inviting bustle the city beckons from my glass window. I eventually caved in and sunk into the luscious bed, burying myself deep in the pillows for a little shuteye before nightfall. Before I knew it, I peeped through the curtains to find that the skies had turned a shade of purple-pink, signalling a close to another day.
Culinary offerings come in abundance at Sheraton Petaling Jaya, giving guests an exquisite insight to Marriott International’s well-known Food & Beverage division. Yue serves signature Cantonese dishes that promises to fulfil all your cravings for Chinese cuisine, paired with immaculate décor and furnitures to go with the distinctively unique menu. At Miyabi, the true Japanese omakase experience is sure to tantalise your taste buds with fresh ingredients and excitingly new combinations of classic favourites.
For premium guests with access to the Club Lounge, added benefits like complimentary alcoholic beverages during cocktail hour and private access to a continental breakfast spread makes it worth the upgrade. The private space, accessible only by the key cards of premium floors, works as the ideal surrounding for small meetings or a communal area to get some work down — all with the scenic view of the business district of Petaling Jaya.
Panoramic views of the city and the iconic Petronas Twin Towers had easily put Sala Bar amongst the top BAZAAR hotspot picks to spend your New Years Countdown party. On other days, the live music that continues playing until after midnight draws hotel guests to the rooftop of the establishment for a relaxing evening to end the day. The open-air concept allows guests to enjoy a breath of fresh air while sipping on their specially-ordered cocktails, or simply to boast as some of the hotel’s many Insta-worthy backdrops for your next Wish-You-Were-Here social media post. Whether it’s for your next solo business travels or a weekend city staycation with your closest friends, Sheraton Petaling Jaya ticks all the boxes for a hospitality experience to remember.
