Living Grand in Kuala Lumpur


Kuala Lumpur was initially supposed to be a quick pass-through city for us – we had to book a number of flights through the airport here, and thought we should at least check it out for a few days since we were going to already be here – our first time in Malaysia! Big cities aren’t typically our favorite (for every amazing experience in Tokyo, we have a super lost and sweaty couple of days in Bangkok) and I’m never quite sure exactly what to do with my days. Cities seem to be best for fine dining, shopping, and… I’m not sure what else most of the time?) But! I was surprised at how much I loved Kuala Lumpur. I have to admit, a huge part of that was our stay at The Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur.

This was the first time I had ever stayed at a hotel like this – I’m so used to being independent and schlepping around New York City, I honestly have no idea what to do with 5 star service. I always want to just grab all of my bags and say “no I got this”, and everyone is so shocked by it – I guess they have no idea what to do with me either. This room was incredible, so much so that I hardly wanted to leave the hotel! Which ended up working out great, since we have constantly had so much work to do. It’s a little easier to spend most of the day on a laptop, when you can lay across a king bed – and these are the views.
