The W Kuala Lumpur is located in the heart of downtown Kuala Lumpur, surrounded by the city’s major attractions.
The W Kuala Lumpur consists of 150 guest rooms spread over 9 floors overlooking the Petronas Twin Towers and the stunning expanse of the city skyline. All rooms are designed to further accentuate the beauty of Kuala Lumpur’s cutting-edge contemporary design.


I was looking for a hotel somewhere to stay after lockdown and was searching for a hotel on the Marriott app, and the W Kuala Lumpur had an intriguing price of RM495 per night, which I had never seen before, so I straight booked it. We were lucky because I don’t think we will ever be able to stay at this price again.


reception at w kuala lumpur

We arrived at the hotel via Grab and the doorman straight came and carried our luggage directly to the 8th floor. Then we found the W hotel’s unique and colorful reception desk.
Since I am a Marriott Platinum Elite, I was allowed to check in without waiting.
The perks of being a Platinum Elite are

  • Complimentary breakfast for two
  • room upgrade
  • Hors d’oeuvres and two complimentary drink tickets per person at Wed Deck

Spectacular Room

I had heard that W Kuala Lumpur is likely to upgrade you to a suite, so I was hoping for an upgrade to a Marvelous Suite, but was not able to because there was no availability on the day. Still, they upgraded us to a Twin Tower view room, which I was appreciated.
