I've stayed for 6 days 5 nights during Chrismast eve celebration since I need to attend training course at Seberang Prai. Should there's no business reason, I don't think people would stay at the mainland. While I attended the course, my wife and kid enjoyed shopping at nearby Sunway Carnival. But surely the car is needed since its not that near.
First day arriving, we waited 15 minutes for bell boy to pick-up our luggages. Although the car park has ample space, its not covered and most are located out of viccinity. They reserved the covered carparks for their own top management and VViP (so, customer is not a King here).
Room- while others have upgraded to slim modern LCD TV, they're still with the bulky CRTs. Toilet-bathtub is generously big,can accomodate 2 adults at a time. No toothbrush,toothpaste, comb, shaver supplied.
Breakfast- generously variety of spread available. Lift services- too slow during peak hours, especially if they're seminars going on.
During my stay the staff are busy decorating at the lobby for the chrismass coming celebration. My kid is exposed to the working hazards without us being warn or the work area being isolated.
Overall, its only good for business trip, should you family accompanies you, opt for the new hotel (exora) that provides swimming pools for water activities enjoyment.
