If you are lucky, Reza, the guest services manager of the Hotel Majestic will meet you upon your arrival and escort you up to your suite. Beforehand, he will have reached out to you to inquire about any dietary restrictions or other requests that you may have – all to make you feel so very welcome to the Hotel Majestic. At least this is true if you are lucky enough to have status with United Airlines Mileage Plus program that translates into status with the Marriot Rewards program.

The highest looking building is the KL Tower (a.k.a. menara KL) which is not the tallest building, the tallest is the Petronas twin towers, but because the KL Tower sits on top of a hill in downtown KL, they appear to be the tallest. In the above picture there is a sideview of the Petronas twin towers which appear to be the third tallest in this picture. I recommend not trying to get up into the Petronas twin towers, you can not book tickets less  than 24 hrs into the future and the staff at the towers are extremely rude and unhelpful. There is also no outside viewing area in the Petronas towers, but there is in the KL Tower where you also get a nice view of the Petronas towers which you will not get if you go up in those towers.

If you feel like being a bit British while in Malaysia, you may take tea in the salon or Library at the Hotel Majestic in KL. You can enjoy some relaxing piano music and indulge in the goodies with your tea!
