Dorsett Grand Subang2:18 PM
Salam and hello!
Been a while since I last updated this blog. We hadn't been traveling of late hence the lack of updates.
Finally this week I had to attend a work event at Subang Jaya and decided to bring my family including my mom with me.
We stayed at Grand Dorsett Subang Jaya for 3 days and 4 nights. Upon reaching the hotel, we were immediately met with warm welcome from the doormen who helped to open our taxi doors and carried the luggage inside.
Check-in did not take a long time although I observed the reception staff looking a bit hassled as he attended to quite a large crowd. Unlike Mandarin Oriental that provided a waiting area in front of the hotel reception desk for guests waiting to be checked in, Grand Dorsett SJ still resort to the old fashion queuing system.
Once we checked in and arrived in our room, the first thing to do was to take photos of course!
We were booked into a 30-square metres Deluxe Room which is appointed with a queen bed, a working area and a 32-inch LCD TV mounted on the wall. My kids instantly fell in love with the plush bed and spent most of their time in the room jumping on it!

Much to my kids' disappointment, there was no Disney channel or other kid channels. There was only one movie channel (Fox Movie). Perhaps because the hotel target market are business travellers? Anyway, with stay-cation getting more popular nowadays, I think it wouldn't harm if the hotel also considers young guests' needs.

During check-in, I was told that the room comes with free 1GB high-speed Internet data plan via Wi-Fi. To my chagrin, the Internet was very slow so in the end I mostly used my own data plan to do my work.

The hotel cleverly incorporates a see-through bathroom to make the room appears more spacious, but guests have the option to close the panel if they want to bathe in private. I had some troubles initially to close the panel, since I couldn't locate any buttons near the window, nor could I pull the panel manually. In the end, we called the reception desk and was informed that the switch was next to the toilet (seriously??) The hotel could have displayed a notice that advises guests the switch location to avoid confusion.

The rest of the hotel room comes with all the amenities that you would expect in a five-star hotel such as tea-making facilities, fluffy slippers, bathrobe, safe box, hairdryer, ironing board and steam iron etc.
