Fancy staying at a 5-star hotel which is adjacent to a shopping mall without breaking the bank? Then hop over to Le Meridien Putrajaya for an enjoyable stay-cation. The hotel which is part of the Starwood Hotels & Resorts chain opened its doors this year, offering 353 modern rooms to cater to various groups of guests.

I was delighted to find myself with the opportunity to experience this brand new hotel recently when I had to attend a meeting in KL. The warm hospitality of the staff greeted me first thing as the concierge opened the cab door for me. Checking in was hassle-free and I was pleased to be given my preferred room which is near the elevator.

Stepping into the hotel room, you couldn't help but notice the ultra-clean air inside. The room is spacious without being too bare, and the lighting is cozy without being too dim. I fell in love with the room instantly.

The room is tastefully decorated with contemporary furniture and vibrant colors that exude elegance and modern haute. I couldn't help but wish I had this kind of bedroom sanctuary to retreat to every day after work. A 50-inch plasma TV adorned the wall opposite the king-size bed for those who loves to lie in while surfing the satellite channels. WiFi is available throughout the hotel without additional charge.

While the toiletries are not exactly designer brand, this doesn't deter me from enjoying a luxurious bath and catching up on some reading, all the while surrounded by the fresh scent of the shower gel. My only peeve with the bathtub is it takes forever to fill it up only to find myself in half-empty bathtub a short while later as the drain stopper doesn't stop the water from seeping through.

After my meeting ended, I had some time to explore the IOI Shopping Mall which is connected to the hotel and are just within steps. I found it extremely convenient as the shopping mall offers plenty of dining options for guests who want to have something other than hotel food.

It is not that the hotel food is not good, in fact I found the breakfast spread decent and worth the money. I had my usual stay-cation menu - American breakfast (omelette, with grilled beef streaks, sausages, grilled tomato and baked beans) and also got to savour the local delicacies (nasi lemak, Chinese porridge, roti pratha, as well as breakfast pastries).

Being a new hotel, I could understand that there are bound to be some hitches here and there. My bathroom mat for example was not replenished the next day. However, other than that small flaw, the rest of the stay was perfect and enjoyable.

Le Meridien Putrajaya is currently offering opening rate from RM360 (RM300 for corporate rate) for their signature room which comes with signature breakfast at Latest Recipe which lasts until 30 November this year. My only regret was not being able to bring my kids to enjoy this hotel while their promotional rate still run.

Verdict: 9/10
