Four Points by Sheraton Kuala Lumpur, located in Chinatown, put on quite a show when it officially opened its doors late last year.
There were lion dancers seen leaping through the air to the beat of the drums; social-media influencers making their rounds in vibrant cheongsams and samfus, and canapé platters piled lavishly with traditional delicacies. The message was crystal clear—it is an establishment that celebrates the cultural history of its illustrious neighbourhood.
Inspired by the Chinese migration from the Klang River to the rural country to engage in mining activities by way of water transportation, the story of olden-day Chinatown is ingrained in the very fabric of the design of the hotel. The exposed burnt brick walls; decorative floor-to-ceiling metal latticework; warm wood; and old-fashioned jade tiles are some of the symbolic choices that stand out.
Within the 318 spacious guestrooms—including 18 suites and 76 inter-connecting rooms—Malaysian creative brand Loka Made illustrates the rich narrative through its customised wall art. Here, tales revolving around the livelihood, craft and trade of the vicinity’s community are depicted through bright colours and caricature that is reminiscent of vintage comic book.
The local flavour is also reimagined at the hotel’s two dining venues. While Lady Yi’s Tea House offers the taste of the Straits with a charming Peranakan Afternoon Tea and cocktails, all-day dining Quan’s Kitchen entices with Chinatown’s culinary specialties as well as Western favourites.
Alternatively, cocktail connoisseurs may head to chinoiserie-styled bar Jann for inventive cocktails and the hotel chain’s signature Best Brews programme featuring a range of local brews. four-points.marriott.com
