To be perfectly honest, I could never in a thousand years afford to stay in a suite like this... however due to a glitch on spg.com I was able to make a reservation for the Imperial Suite for MYR 1000 per night, for six nights.
This suite usually costs MYR 11,746.67 per night so as you can imagine, it felt like winning the lottery!
The hotel did contact me the day after making my reservation to discuss the matter however they did concede there was an error on spg.com (the rate of MYR 1000 should have just been for one of their standard suites) but they did take ownership of the mistake and in the end they did honour the rate of MYR 1000 for the Imperial Suite.
Though we enjoyed our stay immensely, I did feel a sense of guilt throughout and do hope that no one got into too much trouble for the reservations mistake (and I told management this).
Anyway, before we get onto the review I also made a YouTube video to show off the suite. Have a look here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DM5HTwDhCI
The Imperial Suite is MASSIVE. Absolutely and ridiculously MASSIVE! Upon entry to the suite there is a marble foyer (a foyer!) with a small washroom off to the right. Then, the foyer leads onto the main Living Room which is bigger than my apartment! Off of the Living Room there is a Media Room (essentially a second Living Room) with a nice comfy setup with surround sound and a Blue Ray player.
Did I mention that the suite has SEVEN flat screen televisions!?! SEVEN!!!
There is a Dining Room with seating for twelve. Off of this is a kitchen with all the appliances you'd need to make a feast as well as an entrance for caterers. Of course we didn't do this (I'm not a Prime Minister afterall) however we did order some Club Sandwiches late one night and felt like real yuppies sitting at this huge table eating our fast food!
Over on the other side of the suite there is an Office with a great chair and large desk area. The free internet connection was incredibly fast and never dropped out.
Off of this, there is the Master Bedroom which in any other hotel could be considered a Junior Suite unto itself! The bed was amazing; a Sheraton Sleeper with tons of cushions and a massive LCD TV screen right at the foot of the bed. The sitting area of the Master Bedroom has wonderful views of the Petronas Towers.
Leading off of the Master Bedroom there is a walk-in wardrobe and then the Master Bathroom which was also huge beyond imagination! You could draw and bath (big enough for two) and enjoy the view of KL while watching a movie and drinking champagne (I know I did!)
In the bathroom there used to be a sauna however they had since renovated this area into a small gym with free weights and an exercise bike.
The only critique I had of the suite was that the Second Bedroom was quite boring and its decor didn't match that of the rest of the suite (I guess that it is rarely used so they haven't bothered to do it up, but still; it didn't look like any other room in the hotel either.)
The Second Bedroom also had it's own complete bathroom which was just like any other bathroom in the hotel.
So yep, that's the suite reviewed!
My only other comment is that the Hotel and its Executive Club's service is still great, but it doesn't feel as upscale and luxurious as it did when the hotel was part of Starwood's Luxury Collection. I don't know; not as many flowers in vases around and the choice of hors d'oeuvers in the club weren't as exciting and varied as they were a few years ago.
This hotel should rebrand back UP to Luxury Collection and leave the Sheraton brand behind itself - it deserves better than this!
