They Don't Call it The Majestic for Nothing

Pasig, Philippines

I don't see how you can stand to stay anywhere else in KL once you've tried The Majestic. From our hassle-free check in with Farouk, to the incredibly luxurious rooms and excellent service, I'm hard put to think this can be topped anywhere else in the city! I had a beautiful stay with every need addressed with a smile, as all staff are proactive and are conscientious in making every transaction as quick and hassle free as possible. The hotel also offers a shuttle service to various locations around the city in a regular schedule, which makes going around much easier (and cheaper!) for visitors. All this old school beauty married with modern comforts at a price that is absolutely friendly. This place is highly recommended to anyone visiting Kuala Lumpur.

Grandeur of the past, poor service and lacking the recognition of modern day needs that you expect from a Marriott

Stayed in the hotel for 4 nights with my wife and teenage son. The foyer and bedrooms were fabulous, Pool area and Gym great. WiFi was poor. Breakfast was good and had plenty of options. However in the first morning there were children being allowed to climb all over the high-backed seats as if they were climbing frames! The waiter service for coffee and teas was poor so at times we had to go and get our own hot drinks. As the Hotel is a little out of the main City Centre, the hotel believes they have a captive audience for evening dining. The expectations are that most will eat the evening buffet in the main restaurant, or possibly eat fine cuisine in the Piano Bar. There is a bar menu which is the same as the room menu, but this is only served in the Smoke Room. We tried to order the bar menu in the Smoke room with our 15 year old son, but were told that we could not eat there because he was only 15! He was only going there to eat not drink! So we were "banished" to eat our meal in our room. I believe this hotel is living on its past reputation and grandeur and needs to be more flexible in the 21st Century. I am a also a Marriott Gold Member and although I stated this at check in, my membership number was not recorded and I was not recognised as a Bonvoy member with the associated benefits. In addition this is probably the worst Marriott I have stayed in in recent years and there is now plenty of choice of hotels to choose from in KL other than the Majestic.
