DoubleTree by Hilton
12 Jalan Ngee Heng, Johor Bahru (07 268 6868 / doubletree3.hilton.com). DoubleTree by Hilton has raised the bar of JB’s accommodation options. The hotel offers one of the most extensive breakfast spreads we’ve ever seen in addition to a fitness centre that’s open round-the-clock. Families
are well-catered for with a wide range of amenities to make your stay more pleasant; don’t be shy to ask the helpful staff for baby cribs, high chairs and playpens. Definitely keep an eye on DoubleTree’s family stay packages for great deals that include entrance to JB’s theme parks.
7 Jalan Medini, Nusajaya (07 597 8888/ www.legoland.com.my). Residing at this hotel only serves to accentuate the fun of visiting the LEGOLAND theme park. Stay right where the entertainment is situated. Kids love the giant pillar-sized LEGO figures in front of the hotel. Choose your room based on one of three main themes: Adventure, Pirate or Kingdom. Each is designed to resemble a giant playroom with heaps of toys and loud splashes of colour. Even the lobby is full of fun activities to keep young travellers busy while parents deal with the procedure of checking in. A tip: Booking online will yield better deals and packages inclusive of theme park passes.
