Stretching across a 43-storey skyscraper, DoubleTree by Hilton Shah Alam i-City is setting a new benchmark for luxury hotels and transforming the MICE sector in Malaysia’s renowned Tech City.

Catering to the needs of business event planners and attendees, the newly-opened 300-key state-of-the-art hotel houses a total of 1,594m² event space, making it an ideal venue for business conferences, meetings, weddings and other social gatherings.

The stunning pillar-less grand ballroom measures at 1,170m² and can accommodate up to 1,000 guests.

In addition, another 10 flexible meeting rooms are equipped with advanced audio-visual and technical facilities, high-speed internet, bespoke coffee stations, quality catering services and have direct access to the car park.

Merely three minutes away from the Central i-City mall, which has about 350 retail stores, kiosks, and pop-up shops, the hotel also fuses a vibrant mix of business and leisure with i-City Convention Centre, the main meetings hub in Shah Alam and a theme park consisting of SnoWalk, WaterWorld @ i-City and City Of Digital Lights, just a stone’s throw away.

Furthermore, business travellers seeking to soak up some art and culture can visit the nearby Blue Mosque & Garden of Islamic Arts and the Sultan Alam Shah Museum.

Conveniently located in the bustling business precinct of i-City, the hotel also has easy access to the prime manufacturing hubs of Shah Alam and is well connected to major highways such as the Federal Highway, New Klang Valley Expressway, and West Coast Expressway.

Kuala Lumpur International Airport and Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport are only 40 and 25 minutes away respectively.

“With a prime location in Selangor’s Golden Triangle and a total of 1,000 square metres of function space spread over two floors, DoubleTree by Hilton Shah Alam i-City is poised to redefine MICE experiences and expectations of business and leisure travellers alike,” said Gagan Talwar, general manager.

Time-deprived corporate delegates will be delighted to know that they need not venture out to savour exceptional dining experiences – enjoy thoughtfully curated local specialties at Makan Kitchen, tuck into contemporary Italian cuisine at Tosca, or unwind with a cup of freshly brewed coffee and light sandwiches at Axis Lounge. A casual deli and lounge, The Koffee, also serves fresh pastries and cakes to satisfy any unexpected hunger pangs.

The digital-key-enabled guest rooms also feature modern amenities such as motion sensor blinds, a dedicated workspace, a mini-fridge, high-definition TV and high-speed internet access.

Guests and corporate delegates can also recharge at the Eforea spa, work out at the 24-hour fitness centre outfitted with the latest Precor equipment or just lounge by the outdoor pool designed with a swim up bar.

Eco-conscious guests will be heartened to know that DoubleTree by Hilton Shah Alam i-City will be the first property in Malaysia to offer bulk bath amenities in line with Hilton’s sustainability efforts, Travel With Purpose, to reduce single-use plastics.

This is also practised throughout the hotel in meeting room set-ups and guest rooms with the use of glass water bottles, as well as specially curated coffee breaks and meals served with sustainable and responsibly sourced produce that benefit both the environment and guests’ wellbeing.

“We are thrilled to bring DoubleTree by Hilton’s distinct brand of upscale comfort to Shah Alam’s i-City, a highly-anticipated mixed development in Selangor’s Golden Triangle. Not only does the opening of the hotel signal the brand’s robust growth momentum, it also underscores our commitment to growing our presence across Malaysia and South-east Asia, delivering intuitive service and inspired experiences to elevate the journeys of discerning travellers,” said Alexandra Murray, area vice president, head of operations, South-east Asia.
