Sunway Hotel Georgetown Review StaySunway Hotel Georgetown Review Stay (16 August, 2015)

It is always fun to be invited to a hotel stay, and I am one of those privileged people who get to stay at hotels the whole time (and also given VIP treatment each time). Of course, the purpose of my staying at hotels in Penang is so that I can offer would-be visitors a glimpse at how the hotel is like.

I am well aware that my hotel experience will never exactly mimic that of an actual visitor, but this is as close as you would get, other than hearing the hotels promoting itself.

My wife and I check into Sunway Hotel Georgetown on 16 August, 2015. We parked our car on the second floor parking lot and made our way to the lobby. The check-in was smoothly handled by the front desk staff, Jhannani. While I was filling up the registration form, the hotel's Assistant Marketing and Communications Manager, Miss Natasha D. Mahtani, came out to greet me, to ensure everything is in order. We were given a parking chit to be shown to the parking attendant, so that we enjoy free parking as hotel guest.

We were provided a room on the seventh floor, with views of Komtar. Alas, the weather could have been better, for it was raining cats and dogs outside, so we remained in our room.

The house wifi has very good strength, and I was able to browse the web quite swiftly. Since it was raining outside, we cocooned in the room enjoying our king-size bed.

Later that evening, when the rain had exhausted itself, we ventured out into New Lane. There is a Chinese pastry shop next to the hotel, Ban Heang, and we found ourselves shopping there, like we were out-of-state visitors!

The next morning, the sky cleared up, so I went to check out on the swimming pool and gym. The pool is quite small for me. It's just sufficient for a dip. However they also have a whirlpool. It has a gymnasium with threadmills and other exercise equipment. As with most hotels I visited, both the pool and the gym are empty.

Time for breakfast. It's at the Sun Cafe, the hotel's flagship cafe on the ground floor. The food is spread on three sides of the cafe, as well as at a island counter. There are stations for you to order your eggs. There's the usual nasi lemak, porridge, breads, cold cuts, fried beehoon, and so on.

My wife and I had a wonderful breakfast at Sun Cafe. We thank Sunway Hotel Georgetown for the hospitality extended to us during our stay, particularly to the Director of Sales Miss Jennifer Lai and Assistant Marketing & Communication Manager Miss Natasha D. Mahtani, for making the arrangements for our stay.
