    Worst hotel in entire life !0.5/5 star!

    Horrible hotel : 1. This is a non handicap friendly and against government policy for handicap, each floor have a door that lead to the room , this door is not automatically , and I wonder how wheelchair limited individual can access ?unbelievable! ask about handicap parking, they said you have to pay ! 2. Door lock, broken 3 times, first, key card not working, fixed, then we came back to the room, not working. 2nd day, went out for breakfast, came back, key not working! And I m pushing my wheelchair handicap mother around! 3. First not sure if it is and Double Tree policy, I m the one that make a booking for my family and at first I wasn’t able to join but last minute plan change, however I initially make booking for my family name , but since plan change I m the one will check in, but they won’t allow, this is frustrating, as this very inflexible. 2. Room - again , when make booking , there are no description of the price that I paid is only limited to lower floor room and I specifically requested high floor, and on booking they never said so on the price paid only for lower floor. 3. Room, smelly with smell like leak sewage system! 5. Housekeeping - they never make up room when we went out for breakfast, when return they said they are too busy to make room, okay, but I asked them can do later, left for 2-3 hours came back, bed made, but mug/class never wash, hand soup not refill, room smell! Never ever stay here !

    For me nothing Good it was the worst Hotel experience in my life While me and my family having the breakfast in the first day for us in the hotel some one steel my wife bag while it has alot of precious things When i ask the people there they review the cameras and said sorry sir some one took the bag and he is not clear to us If you need to make police report we can guide you I ask one of my malaysian friends he told me dont waste your time police will never search for you Because they know you will leave after couple of days also for them its not a big crime and will take minimum of three days going and coming from the police station The really hotel action for me was so strange i felt they want to cover the situation The bad thing is no one even try to say sorry or try to call me to do any thing to satisfy me Only after 12 hours one lady called me from the reception saying our operations manager saying sorry to you ( the big boss doesnt have time to meet and investigate by him self just send some one to say sorry) !!!!!!!😡😡😡 Im really advising all of you dont even to think to stay in this hotel Your safety and security is the first priority but for them its the last priority I believe 100% this hotel never ever managed by Hilton I will write to hilton people to see if they agree for that or what?

    We heard some ticking noise at night. The check in staff did not inform us about the differences of rooms that we booked.

    Great place to relax

    Great hotel, only the location is a bit of a problem, to visit anything you have to go by car.

    Great hotel

    On arrival, the room we had booked wasn't ready. Please wait about 45 minutes. When we returned, that room also not ready nor the second room they had for we ended up in a terrace suite that was shower ever, among other things. Hotel was crowded... breakfast somewhat chaotic, not a lot of space by the pool....

    Nice kids play pool with a sand bottom, slides and a dump bucket. No escape from the heat anywhere in the hotel except for your room; everything is open air. While this is a nice concept, it can get pretty hot and humid here and a few ceiling fans just don’t suffice, especially if you are with children. My daughter fell and split her nose open on the coffee table in the room and the manager on duty and staff couldn’t have cared less. We had to figure out which hospital to go to in our own with minimal care and assistance. They also gave us someone else’s honeymoon suite, which sounds nice and all but not really; a left over cake with rotten strawberries left on the table made it obvious they had not prepared the room personally for us. The wait staff in the restaurant are for the most part quite slow and not necessarily friendly. Could have been a much better experience with just a little more effort and care.

    Three stars hotel at best. AC wasn't working. Overcrowded. The buffet was a mess. Far away from George town. Don't get fooled by the distance, the traffic is terribly. By the way, its one hour from thre airport. I will never ever considered staying there again.
