Petaling Jaya’s financial hub set to come abuzz with the opening of Sheraton Petaling Jaya

With Kuala Lumpur being the capital of Malaysia and the targeted city for most hospitality brands, Petaling Jaya often goes overlooked. But the satellite city is set to see a change in tempo with the Sheraton Petaling Jaya opening today, along with a host of dining offerings to bring new buzz to the area.

Located in the heart of the financial centre in Petaling Jaya and a mere 20 minutes away from Kuala Lumpur, Sheraton Petaling Jaya general manager Christopher Moore is convinced that, “this is the beginning of a new hospitality benchmark for the local market.”

Sheraton Petaling Jaya
The new Sheraton Petaling Jaya is located in the heart of the city’s financial district.

The hotel has 253 guests rooms and suites, which comes with the Sheraton Signature Sleep Experience. These are top of the line mattresses, linens, duvet, and plenty of pillows that will improve circulation for a better night’s sleep. Even taking a bath is a whole experience of its own with the spacious bathroom stocked with premium Le Grand Bain bath amenities. Perfect for the jet-lagged executive.

Sheraton’s Signature Sleep Experience will give you your well-deserved rest.

But that’s not all the amenities at the Sheraton Petaling Jaya. Business executives headed to the financial hub will revel in its expansive meeting facilities. The hotel boasts more than 3,000 square metres of flexible event space, 1,500 square metres of Grand Ballroom, and 13 meeting rooms with natural daylight.

When the formal business dealings are done, bring the meeting over to one of the six food and beverage spots available within the hotel. Take your pick from all-day dining at Feast, Japanese-fare at Miyabi, or Cantonese cuisine at Yue. Then, kick back and relax at the Chime Cigar Lounge that offers the finest Cuban and other known cigars in one of the four private rooms. Up for a drink? Head to the 33rd floor’s Sala Bar for its al fresco setting.

But it’s not all just work and no play. Bring balance to your day by heading to the Sheraton Fitness centre, a fully-equipped gym, or taking a dip in the outdoor infinity pool on the 33rd floor. For something a little more premium, Club Room guests have exclusive access to the Sheraton Club Lounge on the 31st floor.

With Sheraton Hotels and Resorts being Marriott International’s “most global brand”, we’re certain that the opening of Sheraton Petaling Jaya will be a game-changer for hospitality trends in this city.
