Over the years, the number of Malasyia’s hotels has steadily increased, with several well-known brands entering the market. As a new member of Marriott Bonvoy’s impressive collection of 30 distinctively branded hotels, Fairfield by Marriott Kuala Lumpur, Jalan Pahang, has opened its doors to the public.
Attracting both leisure and business travellers, the new Fairfield by Marriott Kuala Lumpur is less than 10 kilometres from Malaysia’s cultural, financial, and economic city centre, and is a five-minute walk from the monorail and LRT stations, as well as renowned tourist attractions such as the PETRONAS Twin Towers, Bangunan Sultan Abdul Samad, the National Museum, and the popular entertainment, food, and shopping district Bukit Bintang. Taman Tasik Titiwangsa, the National Art Gallery, and Istana Budaya are all within walking distance of the hotel too.
The public spaces of Fairfield by Marriott Kuala Lumpur mirrors the Fairfield by Marriott brand’s ‘modern calm’ aesthetic. There are 186 rooms in the new hotel, all of which are spacious, modern, and well-equipped. Comfort is a priority in the design of the guestrooms, which have bathrooms that open into the room. For those who require more space, the Superior Room includes a separate living area, a dining area, and a huge bedroom with a city view.
The hotel’s signature restaurant, Lesung, serves modern interpretations of traditional Malaysian cuisines inspired by the Malay Archipelago. As well as classics from the West. Lesung (Malay for pestle and mortar) is named after one of the most important kitchen utensils in authentic Malay cooking which is used to crush spices and pound condiments. It is the foundation of traditional cuisine, emphasising Executive Chef Daneh’s total authenticity. For those who are always on the go, the Market in the lobby’s multipurpose space offers Grab-and-Go options for quick snacks.
For business meetings, the hotel also has a 16-seater Board Room with dynamic AV technology and onsite food. Guests staying at the hotel will have access to a 24-hour fitness centre, where they can keep up with their workout routine while on the go with cardiovascular equipment and free weights, as well as a spacious surau (prayer room). The hotel’s surau has a Moorish architecture and can accommodate up to 60 people for an akad nikah (Malay wedding solemnisation ceremony).
