Despite the post-pandemic chaos, a number of brand new hotels and resorts will open their doors to tourists in Malaysia this year. Ideal for the business traveller or even a serial staycationer, the DoubleTree by Hilton Shah Alam i-City is a 300-room contemporary hotel that’s now officially open.
The newest addition to the company’s growing portfolio in Malaysia, this DoubleTree by Hilton is the sixth hotel of its kind to open here.
Business travellers will be chuffed to know that this property is conveniently located within a 10-minute walk of both the I-City Convention Centre, Shah Alam’s premier events hub, and Central-i-City mall, home to the theme park consisting of SnoWalk and Waterworld@i-City — allowing you opportunities for both work and play. The hotel’s location in Selangor’s ‘golden triangle’ provides convenient access to Shah Alam’s major industrial areas too. The Federal Highway, the New Klang Valley Expressway, and the West Coast Expressway are all easily accessible from here.
To take in some culture, guests can drive a few minutes to either the Blue Mosque & Garden of Islamic Arts or the Sultan Alam Shah Museum.
As for the interior of the hotel, here’s what guests can expect:
Home away from home
In accordance with Hilton’s sustainability efforts to eliminate single-use plastics, the DoubleTree by Hilton Shah Alam i-City, which features 300 digital key-enabled guest rooms, will be the first in Malaysia to offer bulk bath amenities. As an added convenience, motion sensor blinds, a separate workspace, a mini-fridge, a high-definition TV, and a high-speed internet connection are also included in the rooms.
Guests can enjoy an Eforea spa, a 24-hour fitness centre built with the newest Precor® equipment, and a lounge with an outdoor pool and a swim-up bar in addition to the hotel’s bedrooms and suites.
