Hilton Garden Inn Puchong

 

Cuti Cuti Malaysia Dream Away Staycation
 
After having stayed at quite a few Hilton Garden Inns abroad, it’s a first for me to check into the Hilton Garden Inn Puchong recently with my family. Located in Millennia City, the hotel boasts of a city and lake view, making the staycation experience a lovely one.
 

A short Cuti Cuti Malaysia is what most of us have learn to really enjoy and appreciate lately. The weekend beckons for a staycation nearby to unwind with family. Hilton Garden Inn offers a solitude from the city and yet, if there is a yearning for some shopping, there’s the IOI mall only 10 minutes away from the hotel.
 

Checking in on a sunny Saturday afternoon, we were greeted with warm smiles from Reception located on the sixth floor. A quick registration and we were handed our room key and briefed on the hotel’s facilities and breakfast options. The reception is spacious and warmly lit by Nature’s light streaming in from the glass windows of the hotel area.
 



Our room, King Deluxe Room, boasted of a view of cityscape with the lake view at sight as well. The room is spacious, enough to hold a lovely king-sized bed as well as an additional roll-away bed along with a work desk area and an apple green single sofa chair.
 

Bed is firm and comfy as we practically snuggled in bed while we were there. The room was also nicely cool hence staying in to chill was an ideal way to unwind and chill out.
 





A mini bar sat in the corner along with beverage amenities and a mini fridge. Petite bottles of local snacks were that thoughtful piece that made our stay a tasty one. We couldn’t resist snacking while catching up on some movies that weekend.
 


There’s the usual wardrobe with mini safe and other amenities…
 



Bathroom is a good size and is equipped with a long bath as well as shower. Amenities are satisfactory as well. The long bath is a plus point for me since my family and I usually make full use of this for relaxation.
 





We also took a leisure walk around the hotel to check out their swimming pool and other facilities in the evening. The swimming pool was rather inviting with that rich blue hue that stretches a nice long one for some laps but at last, the cloudy weather didn’t take too long to break as droplets began to pour down.
 




Gym for those who seek some sweat time and there was also a business centre for those who needed some work done.
 

The evening sun began to set, and our room view was indeed quite lovely…
 




After another hour of resting, we headed down for dinner at The Garden Grille. Located on the same floor as the reception, the restaurant is the hotel’s all-day dining eatery serving local and international menu.
 

Started our dinner with a delicious Wild Mushroom Soup with garlic toast. Nicely done, the soup was tasty with earthy mushroom flavours. We happily polished off the soup with gusto before our mains.
 

Sonny decided on Pepperoni Pizza and was happily devouring his pizza. The thin crust has generous sauce and cheese as well as peperoni to keep him happy.
 


Partner opted of a local favorite of Kampung Fried Rice. The platter of sambal fried rice comes with large grilled prawns, chicken satay and fried anchovies. The rice had a decent breath of wok and was very tasty and fragrant.
 


I opted for Seafood Aglio Olio and must say that I was really happy at sight. Large prawns, mussels and clams with al dente pasta and that robust garlicky chili note hit all the right notes for a yummy pasta.
 

A sweet ending of Cheesecake with fruits sealed our evening with much happiness before we took a quick stroll and retired back to our room to turn in for an early evening.
 

The next morning, we had breakfast at The Garden Grille again. Breakfast was a la carte and we certainly didn’t mind because their Nasi Lemak with Chicken Rendang and Western Breakfast was delicious and well-prepared. Served hot, the fluffy coconut rice with the rich rendang was so satiating.





The boys polished off their breakfast heartily too along with pastries and fruit. Then it was up to the room to chill before we checked out.
 

Our short and sweet staycation at Hilton Garden Inn Puchong was a memorable one. It’s a good time to take this year to discover our country and with the many promotions that the hotel is offering, a staycation is perfect to spend time with family and friends without having to travel too far.
