Day 3(11.01.08) – Holiday Inn Glenmarie

January 17th, 2008 · 8 Surrendered

I’m sick now… down with fever… @_@

on 11th morning, we quickly got ready to catch the earliest bus that we could get but only got to catch the 10.20am one. We wanted to catch earlier ones but we’re late as we planned to go to Sunway Lagoon right after checking in Holiday Inn Glenmarie. When we reached Titiwangsa monorail, we went straight to KL Sentral to change to KTM Komuter to go to Shah Alam. Who knows… We were supposed to alight at Batu Tiga station but we alighted at Shah Alam station. According to the taxi driver, we should go to Batu Tiga which is nearer and not Shah Alam. If we reached Baru Tiga, we will only pay RM10 for the taxi to Holiday Inn Glenmarie instead we had to pay RM20 from Shah Alam Station.

So… There we were… Holiday Inn Glenmarie at Shah Alam, nearer to Subang(according to the hotel receptionist). Our friends got lost when they sent us back from Klang and had to resort to call the hotel for direction, the hotel was so seclude. Thanks guys for taking all the trouble to send us back! Not easy to find the place. If you would like to know, you will see DRB-Hicom and BMW showroom when you are on the way to the hotel. It’s the same road leading to Glenmarie Golf & Country Club.

The lobby reminded me of the ex-Damai Lagoon, except you don’t see the sea but swimming pool *LOL*. It’s so resort like, when you are there, you are away from the hustle and bustle of the city, you can feel that you are in a different environment.

This hotel is not what most will want to stay because it’s so far from KL and transportation is a bit of problem. Besides that, it’s so expensive! We stayed at the Deluxe room for 3 days 2 nights inclusive of breakfast. This room costs RM550+, if include tax it will be RM600+ per night! I’ve never stay in such expensive hotel before hehehe… Good thing this is free, I won it. 😛 That explains why we stayed there hahaha…

They provide free shuttle to various shopping areas such as Bukit Bintang(only Sunday, Saturday & public holiday), Sunway Pyramid, One Utama, The Curve, Subang Parade, Putra LRT Kelana Jaya. It’s on first come first serve basis. They didn’t go to MidValley but depends on the situation and also the driver. If you are lucky, you might get to go there but if there are other passsengers, then you can only go to the designated destination.

It’s much more suitable for businessmen and golfers.

Left: Leading to our room.
Right: The shower area and toilet.

Left: The counter. Hair-dryer is mounted on the wall.
Right: WAH! Red Earth products! First time I see 😛 So sakai hahaha…

Left: The cupboard.
Right: The beds. It’s so comfy… The pillows are so comfy and fluffy! I got really good night sleep at this hotel. By far, this is the best hotel room I’ve ever stayed, I mean the bedding.

Left: Broadband was available but it’s RM57 per day! -.- Expensive!!! I better go to shopping mall to online. That explains why I visited Starbucks almost everyday *LOL*
Right: We were given complimentary fruits. So thoughtful of them. We need to eat more fruits, replenish our vitamin C. It’s easy to get sick after traveling. I’m sick now… Flu 🙁 Should bring along a small bottle of vitamin C.

Here are all the photos of what we got for our 2 days’ breakfast. These are just some that I had eaten, there are more that I didn’t take, I forgot 😛 Hehehe…

They sent us to Sunway Pyramid after we checked in. Thought of going to Sunway Lagoon but not enough time already. Then the next day they sent us to Bukit Bintang, we took the LRT to Mid Valley, they couldn’t drop us there because there was other passengers that wanted to go to Bukit Bintang. The last day, they sent us right in front of Cititel Express at Chow Kit, this is because only there were only us and it’s a Sunday which they do go to Bukit Bintang for free. They didn’t use their van instead use a Proton Waja to send us there.

That’s all about Holiday Inn Glenmarie. I won’t be staying there for the second time hahaha… Not that it’s not good, it’s good, superb! Just that the location and price tag are a bit too much for my standard hahaha…

    […] So… It’s time to check-out of Holiday Inn Glenmarie and go back to reality… Sigh… REALITY… So sad… It’s a Sunday, after we had our last breakfast at Holiday Inn Glenmarie, we check-out and waited for the shuttle to send us to Bukti Bintang. Waited and waited… No sign to be seen… Then suddenly the staff approached us to tell us that our transport was waiting there, I was like, “where? where?”, it turned out that they are not using the Holiday Inn’s van instead a Waja waited for us.
