In the heart of the city
Doubletree by Hilton Johor Bahru offers every convenience for travellers, whether you're working, shopping or just relaxing across the Causeway
It's not often that a hotel is equally well equipped for both business and leisure visitors, but Doubletree by Hilton Johor Bahru has the equation well thought out. The Doubletree by Hilton brand, which has 500 hotels in 40 countries around the world, has created a loyal international following for its unique accommodations and full-service facilities, accompanied by warm brand hospitality.
Business travellers, who make up the bulk of weekday guests, are well-catered for with amenities such as speedy Wi-fi connection and 10 modern meeting spaces. The Executive Lounge
is a favourite place to unwind, where they can enjoy pre-dinner cocktails and canapés and also the excellent city views from the 29th floor.
Each of Doubletree by Hilton Johor Bahru’s 333 rooms and suites is stylishly updated, with a walk-in shower and a glass feature wall that allows natural light into the bathroom. Regardless of your choice of room, you'll enjoy a Sweet Dreams bed that comes with pillow menu, so that you can feel right at home, as well as 40-inch LED TV with cable channels and rain shower. The Crabtree & Evelyn premium toiletries also draw a nod.
Meanwhile, one- and two-bedroom suites allow you to choose apartment-style facilities, ranging from kitchenette, laundry facilities and dining areas to a walk-in bathtub in selected categories. For suite category and executive rooms on the high floors, complimentary access to the Executive Lounge is included – a major perk.
Leisure travellers can also expect the same level of hospitality and amenities. Adults and kids can play in separate swimming pools on the 13th floor, while a 24-hour fitness centre offers ample workout equipment overlooking the inviting pool. The hotel has also added a whirlpool and steam room for travellers who enjoy warm hydrotherapy.
Most of all, guests are spoilt for choice by a slew of dining options, starting from Axis Lounge, The Food Store and Makan Kitchen on the ground floor to Tosca Italian Trattoria on the 13th floor. Makan Kitchen in particular is one of the most enticing allday dining venues, with an eye-popping array of live stations at the breakfast and dinner buffets. At breakfast, fill up on Chinese, Indian and Malay cuisines, including a full nasi lemak spread, while weekends see the ever-popular seafood dinner buffet that includes shellfish on ice, carvery station and desserts galore.
Tosca serves up wood-fired and antipasto specialities with flair. This is where the city's sophisticated diners come for fine Australian Black Angus grain fed sirloin, ribeye or T-bone, carefully grilled to release the meat's tender juices. The showcase pizza oven also takes pride of place, ensuring your margherita or mixed seafood pizza is of the correct texture. For fresh ingredients that can't be beat, the caprese salad is loaded with buffalo mozzarella and roma tomatoes, while the pan-fried ocean trout is delightful with its crisp skin.
All guests are promptly served a warm, delicious in-house chocolate chip cookie upon check-in. The small but sweet gesture puts everyone in a more cheerful frame of mind. Not only is Doubletree by Hilton Johor Bahru a hotel that's located in the heart of the action, just a few minutes' drive from the Woodlands Checkpoint, it also gives you service from the heart.
