3D2N Staycation in Style and Comfort
Over one weekend, my family and I took a short staycation to check out Four Points by Sheraton Puchong. It’s my first time staying under this brand and I have to say that I am very pleased with what the hotel has to offer.
We checked in late Friday after work hours and it was pouring heavily that evening. Traffic was a mess but we were really looking forward to our weekend getaway for a change. As I have always mentioned, sometimes a nice local getaway is perfect as one can have a nice and short break without breaking the bank.
Four Points by Sheraton Puchong is also part of the Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) so members of SPG gets the best rate as well as Star Points. If you are not a SPG member yet, do join as it is free membership.
The hotel is easily spotted as it is strategically located in Puchong along the main highway. Whether one is on travelling for leisure or business, the 249-room hotel is a great place and value-for-money hotel to stay at. Read on for my experience at our 3D2N staycation…
We arrived around dinner time and was literally famished. A quick check-in and we headed straight for dinner at hotel’s signature restaurant, The Eatery. Since it was Friday, it was a Seafood & Barbeque Dinner Buffet.
Feast on a kaleidoscope of succulent treats of Seafood on Ice, Chinese and Western seafood dishes, Barbeque Steak, Chicken, Lamb and Seafood, Satay, Curry Fish, Dim Sum, Noodles, Pizza and more. The Curry Fish was particularly superb in my books as the spices are well balance and it has such a luscious creamy and robust note that I actually went back for a second helping. More in my next food post...
After our dinner, we headed up to our Deluxe Room with King Bed. The room was warmly lit and was inviting. It was actually nicely spacious and there was even lots of room if one were to add an additional bed. I like the warm neutrals of the theme colors of the room with subtle hints of colors.
All Four Points rooms are fitted with the Four Points by Sheraton Four Comfort™ signature bed with plush mattress, down pillows and comfortable sheets and duvet. The bed is utterly comfortable and we all slept so well the two nights we were there. Even in the morning, my little one and I didn’t really want to leave our bed. Firm and yet plush, I slept so well and woke up to a very relaxed posture.
On another note, I actually went to Penang a few weeks later and stayed at Four Points by Sheraton Penang because I was really like the bed. The Penang was even better because it also boasted a beautiful ocean view but that would be another story… wink!
Our room has the usual amenities such as a 40” LED flat screen television, complimentary high speed WIFI Internet access and spacious work desk with all the usual trimmings. There was also a lovely full basket of fruits.
Over to the little mini bar area, there is the usual mini fridge completed with coffee and tea amenities and complimentary water. There was also a French Press coffee maker!
By the doorway area, a full length mirror is available on the wardrobe door. There were fluffy bathrobes, iron and ironing board, mini safe and laundry services bag.
The bathroom was also spacious and well designed to equip a glass shower room fitted with rain shower as well as the usual shower head. Four Points is environmentally friendly and provides bath towels and bed sheet changes upon request only to keep our world greener.
There is the usual bathroom amenities as well as minted mouthwash which is a plus point because most hotels do not provide this. It certainly feels like a star higher than its rating for this Four Points.
Then it was time to rest as my head sink into the soft down pillows for the evening…
The next morning, we woke up later than our usual and headed down to The Eatery for breakfast. Breakfast turned out better than I expected and there was such a lovely spread which I will feature in my next dining post of Four Points By Sheraton Puchong.
After breakfast, we did a short hotel tour hosted by the management team to check out the other rooms available as well as the facilities.
The lobby was spacious and nicely designed as it had its own reception area for check-ins and the lounge area on the other side for privacy and comfort. By the reception area, there was a classy I-Spot Business center with Mac computers.
The lounging area has The Lobby Lounge with a striking circular cylindrical booth that always seemed to be occupied as it is a nice hotspot to rest. One can also relax at the Lobby Lounge cleverly sectioned and filled with lots of plush sofas with bright orange cushions and warm lighting to offer privacy.
Walking down further, there is a long blue contemporary bar as well as another booth where guests can enjoy some R&R moments in the cool area as well as the alfresco area.
We headed up to the rooms where we checked out their 12 Executive Suites and their Deluxe rooms. The Executive Suite features a separate living room area and is very spacious and indeed lovely. The bathroom is also spacious and offers pleasurable comfort in space and style.
The swimming pool at Four Points By Sheraton Puchong was not as fancy as some other hotels but it does offer an infinity view of the township. It is also not as big but I happen to think it is sufficient as this hotel is located in a business area rather than a scenic vacation area.
There is a large open deck that is perfect by the pool for special celebratory functions.
The fitness center was also located in the same level of the pool as is surprisingly very spacious and fully equipped with gym equipment so one can definitely enjoy a solid gym hour before heading to work.
Four Points by Sheraton Puchong has a large Puteri Grand Ballroom as well as smaller event space of Putera Meeting Rooms catered for corporate functions as well as private functions and celebratory events. These were equipped latest audiovisual technology as well. I must say, the high speed WIFI internet access here is excellent as I was always connected throughout my stay at this hotel.
The rest of our stay at Four Points by Sheraton Puchong was indeed memorable and enjoyable. The hotel offers simplicity and modern comforts that is definitely good value. It is also located in a strategic location with shopping malls and many eateries nearby and only 35 minutes to the KLIA airport. We also enjoyed a lovely Weekend Hi-Tea Buffet where kids rule at The Eatery coming right up in my next post so stay tune…
