Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur keeps things fresh for business travellers

Among the new features at the hotel is the lobby area which has been redesigned as a multi-use space for casual and formal talks, and where guests can work at tables with in-built power sockets.

Hotel manager, Fauzy Wahab, said: “Our meeting spaces are lifestyle-inspired to offer delegates a stress-free ambience.”

More power points have also been outfitted in the 420 guestrooms for the convenience of business travellers who require to work on multiple devices. Broadband speed throughout the facility has been upgraded to 8mbps.

Fauzy explained that understanding the requirements of corporate and MICE travellers was paramount to ensuring the hotel continues to grow its marketshare well into 2017.

He said: “Most corporate events are held in the city on weekdays, but we are also strategically targeting niche segments that hold weekend events such as those for medical professionals.”

Fauzy is also keen on attracting business travellers who are involved in the numerous construction projects in and around Kuala Lumpur.
