Yes Ringgit - but we are generating a lot of volume for the hotel.

Stayed in a Marvelous suite recently- no KLCC park views to speak of. It does face the twin towers though.

Nice. Did you book a basic room and gotten an upgrade to a suite because of your status? (If yes, are you PE or PPE?)
Thanks!

I was upgraded based on Plat75 status. I was informed that only a few studio suites were in inventory during my stay. My understanding is that the studio suite is a standard suite and what should be expected for space available Plat upgrades from now on. Occupancy was quite low judging by empty public spaces.
Took a few quick pictures of a studio suite I was shown.

Does the pool get any sunshine? Do they give you any coupons for drinks or appetizers to make up for a lack of a lounge? The lack of a lounge means the Renaissance and J.W. Marriott are probably better options.

Nice! I couldn't find any suites available for booking in mid-Sep though.

They might still be blocked- less than half of suite inventory was open during my stay. However rates seem to be loaded now.
