Hotel Review: DoubleTree by Hilton, Johor Bharu

This is my 5th? 6th stay here as it is just over the Causeway from Singapore. Unfortunately due to traffic and congestion it took 3.5 hours door to door; needless to say the lounge was shut when I arrived by I had a lovely handwritten card, fruit basket, and chocolates waiting for me from the hotel manager when I arrived in my upgraded one-bedroom Suite.
My stay here was very short – in at 8.45pm and out at 9.15am the following day. Yet I managed to pack in a spa and steam room, movie on Fox Premium, and breakfast in the Executive Lounge the next day.

So why did I stay? To be honest it was just due to the fact that I needed 1 more stay to hit 30 stays in a calendar year to retain Elite Diamond status with Hhonors. And for +\- $45 and 4000 Hhonors points, it was well worth the trip over!

On the hotel service side, I have to admit it is excellent. Smiles all round and ‘good-morning Sir’ with a hand to the heart.
