The Westin Kuala Lumpur is located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur on the vibrant streets of Jalan Bukit Bintang. This 5-star hotel is strategically located within walking distance of Kuala Lumpur’s best shopping and attractions, including the Petronas Twin Towers and the Pavilion KL shopping mall.


There are three Marriott hotels in front of the pavilion: the Westin, the JW Marriott, and the Ritz-Carlton, and I stayed at the Westin. I managed to book a room at RM270, the cheapest among these three hotels. Unfortunately, this room rate is for the Covid-19 period and the room rate is usually around RM500.


entrance at the westin kuala lumpur

I arrived at the hotel via Grab cab. When I arrived at the entrance, a friendly doorman came right to us and carried our luggage. After checking in, he carried my luggage straight to my room. My room was an apartment, so if I had been alone I would have gotten lost, but the doorman took me there, thank goodness.

By the way, all of the clocks in the lobby are from one of the Big Three watchmakers, the luxury brand Audemars Piguet!! I like it.

1 Bedroom Apartment

I had reserved a guest room, but was upgraded to an apartment, perhaps because there was availability during the Covid-19 period.

Bottom line

Among the nearby Marriott hotels, the Westin seemed to me to be competitively priced and above all with service, lounge, and breakfast. I especially liked the lounge and the friendliness of all the staff made me want to stay there again.
