Hospitality at Sunway Hotel Georgetown was very good, though it was dented a little bit by an incident where the hotel parking attendant insisted on charging me parking fee, even though the hotel has already validated my parking ticket for free parking on that visit. Although the hotel managed to sort out the issue with its parking attendant, I felt it necessary not to sweep any unpleasant incidents under the carpet. Having said that, Sunway Hotel Georgetown remains recommendated for visitors looking for accommodation in George Town.
The facilities at Sunway Hotel Georgetown include a fitness centre, a swimming pool and a car park. Rooms feature individually controlled air-conditioning, complimentary coffee and tea making facilities, electronic key card access, writing desk, LCD television, wall-mounted hair dryer, luggage rack and complimentary Internet access.

12 June 2015: My wife and I joined foodie bloggers to preview the Ramadhan Buffet spread by Sunway Hotel Georgetown. We arrived at 6:30 pm, and had a chance to photograph all the different dishes that were available. What a spread! Among the items I enjoyed the most include the daging hitam manis and the murtabak. There was also a mamak-style laksa which was extremely spicy but good.
