Formerly known as the Regent Hotel Kuala Lumpur, the hotel was known as among the earliest five–star establishments in the city. The panoramic bubble lift of this hotel, fringed by a series of protruded triangular glass walls on both east and west wings has never failed enticed any motorists passed through the Jalan Bukit Bintang since the end of the 1980s.
To be rebranded as the Grand Millennium Hotel, this major refurbishment project will involve the significant upgrading works of the hotel rooms, main lobby, atrium space, external public spaces, repairing work of the building facade and five F&B outlets. The five-star hotel also accommodates 468 rooms of various types ranging from deluxe rooms, club rooms and suites.
Located next to the Pavilion Mall in the entertainment and shopping district of Bukit Bintang, the hotel also is equipped with lifestyle amenities including swimming pool, spa and fitness centre. It also boasts a number of meeting and event facilities for any business and private occasion.
Retaining the similar façade design, the vertical glass walls are reinstated using non-abrasive cerium oxide, thus giving a brownish outlook. Additionally, spray tile finish with similar hues has been applied to the façade wall. Stepping into the main lobby, guests will be welcomed with a massive round chandelier hung below the skylit atrium. The generous natural light receives inside the triple volume lobby creates a grandeur effect during the day, and an opulent atmosphere emitted by the chandelier during night time.
