Kuala Lumpur, or KL, as it is fondly known, is the capital as well as the largest city in Malaysia. Located midway along the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia, at the meeting points of two significant rivers such as the Klang and the Gombek, Kuala Lumpur is one of the Malaysia's three federal territories, others being Putrajaya and Labuan.

As a tourist spot, Kuala Lumpur presents an array of tourist attractions, from towering building, incredible mosques, and beautiful monuments to relaxing parks, spectacular gardens, and interesting museums. Few among many of the attractions in the city are Merdeka Square, also known as Independence Square; Petronas Towers, which is perhaps the greatest of all attractions in the city; Batu Caves, a sacred spot of Hindus; Kuala Lumpur Railway Station, a magnificent Moorish-style building; Masjid Jamek, also known as Friday Mosque; Masjid Negara - the largest mosque in South-East Asia; Chinatown, a bustling area in the city; and National Science Center.

Hence, Kuala Lumpur is visited by people from across the world throughout the world. In order to cater to the growing needs of the tourists, Kuala Lumpur comes with an array of accommodation options such as hotels and resorts.

Usually, these hotels are within close proximity to some of the top tourist attractions in the city such as Petronas Tower, and provide visitors to choose from a number of accommodation choices such as standard rooms, suites, guest rooms, and apartments.

Apart from these, majority of these hotels are coupled with two or more restaurants, serving everything from local cuisines to western dishes. There are also some hotels attached with superb bars with extensive selection of wines and other beverages.

Likewise, if you are health conscious traveler or one seeking relaxation after a day's sightseeing, then go for such hotels attached with state of the art fitness centers, excellent spa providing spa treatments, sauna, and superb swimming pools.

Above all, a number of hotels in the city provide facilities in the form of several types of packages.

In some instances, packages cover overnight stay in suite with separate bedroom and living room, complimentary breakfast, free usage of broadband internet, discounted spa treatments, and free car parking.
