Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur: Essential Malaysia
The Kuala Lumpur hotel landscape may continue to add five-star properties across the city, but one perennial favourite retains its title as champion in the category of Best Location. Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur, the more casual sister property of the opulent Shangri-La Hotel just a couple of kilometres away, is a favoured choice for five-star accommodation in what is one of Asia’s most vibrant cities. Spacious rooms, friendly staff, excellent F&B options, and the best location in town―one that will never be surpassed by any other hotel no matter how glamorous―all contribute to making Traders KL a relaxing place to stay whether for leisure travellers on holiday or business people attending conferences and expos at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre next door to the hotel.
Executive rooms ending in 23 are corner rooms at the end of the corridors. Their floor to ceiling windows on two sides enhance the sense of openness found in all the hotel’s rooms facing the verdant KLCC Park and commanding presence of Petronas Towers directly across from the hotel; as most everyone knows, Petronas Towers are the tallest twin towers in the world and Malaysia’s most famous landmark. The view of the Towers is impressive at any time of the day, but at night it is truly spectacular as the coloured lights and dancing waters of the fountains of KLCC Park complement the illuminated Towers themselves.
Traders may be a great place to stay, but it is THE place for a night out in Kuala Lumpur. The hotel’s aptly named SkyBar has long been the hottest place in town for drinks after work and well into the evening. Located on the 33rd floor, SkyBar’s unique atmosphere comes from its open-air swimming pool surrounded by cushioned seating areas where guests can enjoy a variety of signature cocktails as well as an innovative menu of tasty items, among them the most delicious satay sticks in the city, all while taking in that colossal view. This being Malaysia, good food is a minimum for any hotel, and at Traders the F&B options are exceptionally appealing. Traders also serves a stellar version of the flavourful rice dish called nasi lemak, the national dish of Malaysia, as well as many other taste sensations during breakfast, lunch, and dinner at its other dining venues Gobo Chit Chat and Gobo Upstairs Lounge & Grill.
The Traders health club and spa provide guests the space to indulge in their pursuits whether seeking a physical challenge or the recuperation from the same. Shoppers looking to to indulge in their preferred pastime have the many shops of the Suria KLCC mall right across the park, just a complimentary ride away on the Traders golf cart shuttle.
