Room with a view

KLCC in the evening from our room

Immediately after the new year's, I was feeling a little bummed out. Mostly because I was exhausted. And also, I felt a tinged of reality setting in – the reality of my life changing (again) in a few short months. I did say that as soon as we hit 2009, the clock will really start to tick and I couldn't be more correct.

I was probably 'hung-over' and the effects of it lasted a few days -- the reason why you are only reading about this now.

For the last day of the year (I cannot believe that it's almost a week now!), I wanted to spend the day (and night) in the city. So, I made reservations at one of KL's newest hotels. Mind you, I made the reservations some few months ahead of time..you know, just in case.

After a wonderful night's stay, all I have is one word to describe the experience : C-O-O-L!! I have absolutely no complaints about the place. I chose it simply because it's new for one thing. It's extremely close to the KLCC shopping center and they even provided 'transportation' (buggy) to and from there (we are quite the lazy lot). And I wanted a perfect view of the fireworks in the comfort of my own space with a hot drink and not having to rumble with the crowd. I'm a such a sucker! Thus, I am every bit the satisfied customer.

However, what I didn't know (Well, I should have since the name itself is a dead give-away) was that they aren't exactly a family oriented hotel. Their set-up is geared more towards the urban individuals and the business-minded. As such, you won't find any activities and play area for kids. There isn't even a kids pool! So, if you're looking for a family weekend getaway in the city, you're probably better off putting up at Mandarin Oriental or the traditional Hilton or Shang.

Anyway, to satisfy your curious minds, below are a couple of more photos that we took.

Oh, Trader's is definitely not a kid friendly hotel!! But I love the pool so much!!! It's so windy up there and it's like being in a different environment altogether despite being smack in the centre of smelly KL! Now, I want to go stay there for some R&R. Did they have a spa? hahaha....
