I love to travel but I adore staycations too. I particularly enjoy getting Club/Executive Rooms because of the privileges that come with it--priority check-in/check-out, all-day free beverages, free laundry/pressing, buffet breakfast, 2-hour free-flow cocktails at evenings, late check-in/check-out and many more!
|Welcome to PJ Hilton!|
They gave us a room at the 20th floor, view is nothing to rave about but it was still fine. Room size was bigger than our Club Room at Oasia Hotel. We had a King bed and I immediately called room service to request for additional feather pillows (sorry i'm not sorry!). There was a separate shower and bath, with amenities are from Peter Thomas Roth. We also had a big flat screen TV where we binge-watched The Walking Dead via HDMI. Anyway, I found it sort of weird that they offer Lipton tea bags in the rooms and even in the lounge. I love tea and I drink Lipton on a daily basis but I just assumed that since this is Hilton, they would have other brand preference for teas? Like how Dusit has TWG, Shangri-La with Dilmah, etc.
At 6pm, we went up the Hilton Executive Lounge at the 21st floor for some cocktails and canapes. Have to admit, this has always been my favorite club room perk. We had a sit by the window with a great view of the city and the sunset. The cocktail options were not much but the food spread was sufficient and filling enough to be considered as dinner. There were hot options, some sushi, cheese, sandwiches, and fruits. If you're not into alcohol, there are fruit juices, soft drinks, and sparkling water--all free flow. The staff were great as they know when to offer you another round of drinks.

We chose to have breakfast the next day at the lounge even though we also have an option to dine at Paya Serai downstairs where it will probably be crowded. The downside though was there were less food options at the lounge but they were good nonetheless with a mix of local and Western dishes. Would have been better though if there was pork bacon but since we stayed in Malaysia, I had to do with beef strips. Meh. Service was amazing yet again and we even met a Pinay staff named Beverly who assisted us with all our needs. There's also this cool guy named Youri that BB thought was the manager...turned out he was still a trainee!
