This was my first time to stay in a Hilton and I was instantly impressed by the welcome amenity consisting of a generous platter of fresh fruits and a wooden tray full of decadent pralines. A handwritten note from the General Manager also adds to the arrival experience.

The Executive Room has the typical guestroom layout one would expect in a luxury hotel. I particular loved the carpet which blue and yellow colors bring in the relaxing vibe of South China Sea and the Sabahan sunset. Some of the modern conveniences I enjoyed in my room were the bedside control panel for the inroom lighting and the 47-inch full HD television with local and international satellite channels.

I stayed at Hilton Kuala Lumpur on a Sunday and would go straight to my office from the airport the following day. Thankfully, Hilton has invested a lot in providing quality sleep to its guests. I personally experience the Hilton Serenity Bed during my stay at Hilton Kota Kinabalu where I had an uninterrupted 8-hour sleep. I really felt well-rested the following day and I didn't feel tired coming from my flight.

The closet cabinet definitely has more than enough space for a week-long business or leisure trip to Kota Kinabalu. Guests are also provided with an iron and ironing board and an electronic safe big enough to fit a laptop. Coffee and tea making facility is available at the minibar.

The bathroom is in a three point bathroom layout which includes a sink in the middle, a walk-in shower and a lavatory on either sides. The shower is fitted with a handheld and a rainfall shower head with hot and cold water. A glass wall serves as a divider between the bedroom and the shower.

Body and bath amenities by Peter Thomas Roth is the global standard for all Hilton properties. The complete set include facial soap bar, massaging soap bar, body cleansing gel, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and mouth wash.

Overall, I enjoyed my stay in the Executive Room of Hilton Kota Kinabalu. Being one of the newest hotels in the city, the room has a very modern design and equipped with state-of-the-art technology suited for today's business and leisure travelers. The room is perfect for solo travelers or couples.
