Holiday Inn Melaka

We took a short and casual holiday in Melaka and stayed at the Holiday Inn. I remember the maxim, "The most spiritual to do when one is tired is to rest." It is highly recommended as it is only 6 months old. The sparkle, the polish and the newness is still there. The rest of the international hotels are at least 10 years old. We were at the 19th floor.

They are having an incredible offer. You use your Amex card to get 2 nights in a suite for the price of one. Being a suite you get a host of privileges, separate/private check-in, use of the Executive Lounge with free flow of drinks and snacks, 2 hours of free WiFi and drinks are free in the refrigerator. The service was swift and professional. The only way to keep customer's loyalty is to exceed their expectations all the time.

All in all it was a pleasant stay. The rest was sweet as the room has 'acres' of space. We were not hemmed in.

The city has some more added attractions like the river cruise and a revolving tower that takes you up to 80 m to get a good view of Melaka. Another feature is that as it moves up the platform revolves around. It is also one of the cleanest city in Malaysia. Keep it up.
