Pullman KL opens after rebrand
AccorHotels launches the?Pullman Kuala Lumpur City Centre Hotel & Residences, further consolidating the Pullman brand as what the company says is the fastest-growing upscale brand in Asia Pacific.
Located in the heart of the trendy Bukit Bintang district, the hotel offers 445 guestrooms and 157 serviced apartments.
The former Prince Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur will undergo full refurbishment over the next two years to reach Pullman standards. It will remain open throughout, with renovations designed to avoid guest disruption.
?Since launching in 2008, the Pullman brand has really struck a chord with owners as a hotel that appeals to today?s connected and sophisticated traveller,? said Michael Issenberg, chairman and CEO AccorHotels Asia Pacific.
?The number of high-profile hotels that have rebranded to Pullman in recent months ? including The Park Lane Hong Kong, the former Hilton on the Park in Melbourne and now the Prince in Kuala Lumpur ? is testament to the brand’s ability to meet the needs of today?s global nomads.?
Pullman describes itself as ?a brand of stylish, upscale hotels with a contemporary vibe, innovative technology, high quality meeting spaces and best-in-class business and fitness facilities.?
Issenberg says the Pullman Kuala Lumpur City Centre Hotel & Residences is a perfect fit for the brand, thanks to its superb location and excellent facilities, modern rooms, panoramic views, fitness centre, kids club and outdoor pool.
With Pullman having a strong focus on balanced food and beverage offerings, the hotel will feature six dining outlets from a casual coffee lounge and poolside terrace grill to Japanese and Chinese fine dining.
It will be the fourth Pullman in Malaysia and the 56th in Asia Pacific, joining a global network which aims to reach 100 hotels by the end of the year.
In Asia Pacific alone, Pullman has a strong pipeline of over 40 hotels in the next few years and will continue to expand aggressively. Pullman is now the largest five-star hotel brand in Australia and the fastest-growing AccorHotels brand in China, reflecting its popularity in the region.
