Having read through this forum and also the FAQ, I am still a bit confused.. We are planning a trip to KL end Feb. Quite short notice, and I see a lot of the hotels are already fully booked..,
I decided that the Le Meridien might be our best bet (we are traveling with a 5year old, so kids club important) but after reading a lot of recent bad reviews about the hotel- I am hesitant to book! (Maybe something to do with the planned withdrawal of Starwood? Seems like quite a few people are complaining about the service and that things are very "dated")
Also, It seems like the LM is on a beautiful beach, but is there a variety of dining options within walking distance? Seems a bit isolated? (We like local cuisine, and never eat at a hotel)
Other options are the sands, JW marriot or Ramada (which seems to be fully booked, but I can play around with our dates if need to be) Any other suggestions will be much appreciated.
Also, is it worth renting a car?
