I had a fantastic time at EQ from the onset of my arrival until my checkout. My stay was a special one as I also proposed to my fiancee. The infinity pool is amazing and the room setting was all fantastic. The sky bar and the viewing point gives you a good spot for you to enjoy drinks and photo taking. Special thanks to the team that helped me planned from my arrival, 1 hour time at the infinity pool, drinks at the sky bar following with dinner, and tactful arrangement for my proposal at the viewpoint and the follow up room setting in our room. The food we ordered through dine in kitchen was also very delicious. Special shout out to these individuals and to their respective teams; 1) Ms Radhika & team 2) Ms Hasmiza & team 3) Siva & team 4) Angie & team Thanks so much and keep up the good work. Cheers, R

Hotel's Favourite
My 1st stay after MCO 2020 in March. This time taking the 1 day off , celebrating our 24th Anniversary with my loved one. Stayed for 1 night at EQ Hotel KL, and it was arranged by the team tremendously. They had the room decorated, with swan love and petals of roses on bed, fruit basket with a slice of cake. The room was spacious and the Reservation staff assisted us to the room and explained further on the features of the room. The mini bar was Complimentary ! Due to MCO, our package inclusive of breakfast at Nipah Restaurant and dinner in the room. The food served during our dinner, was delicious, The breakfast spread was nice, even though due to MCO, all are based on SOP. We also manage to have our tea at L2 Restaurant , which we had 1 club sandwich and chicken burger. Delicious! Our room faces the KLCC and the view was wonderful! We expect more lights from KLCC but not that what we expected , but still its lovely view. We manage to went up to Sky51 - and the view was spectacular. Great stay !

it was a last minute plan, i emailed a lot of hotels asking for connecting rooms to accommodate 6 of us. Ms Radhika from reservation team, went an extra mile by calling me straight away, asking for the details as we planned to celebrate my son's birthday and our anniversary as well. checking in was smooth and personalized. we were ushered up to our rooms and we were surprised with the treats and deco in the rooms. we stayed in the premier king klcc view connecting to a deluxe king room, the view was stunning. had a take away for the kids at etoille and love the eco-friendly take away packaging. had a drink at Blue at 51st floor at night and the view was spectacular. breakfast at Nipah was good. the staff were friendly and accommodating. food was good especially the pastries and roti canai/tosei with dhal and curry. the kids had a splendid time at the swimming pool. view was spectacular, facing the KL tower. they can even play bubbles on the small grass area there.we also booked the gym session and the gym is spacious with a lot of equipments. kids love the bath tub...lucky we booked 2 rooms and we had 2 bath tubs to use. i must congratulate all staff at EQ for being so accommodating, friendly and made our stay a wonderful one. kids did not want to leave. will definitely come back soon.

The team at EQ were absolutely amazing! From the Reservations team PIC Ms Radhika, to the Checking In team, they were all so accommodating & attentive to all our request. The rooms were a luxurious treat and so was the F&B options. Not to mention the fully decked up gymnasium! It was truly a memorable weekend getaway and we will surely be back!

Had a very much needed 2N break with the family, booked it during the 9.9 flash sale. The proactive friendly service is so heartfelt throughout the whole stay! Very consistently from every single staff at the hotel, kudos to all the staff and management. Love the new modern design and vibe, super clean and not to mention the complimentary daily snacks (plus the snow skin mooncakes). Food served at the restaurants is nice and reasonably priced. Kids love the infinity pool with beautiful city view, so close to the KL Tower. Best to swim during the evening for the sunset when the pool turns colorful. A memorable magical moment for us! The only minus is the double queen room is rather small. Overall, a very complete pampering experience and highly recommended!
