JOHOR BARU: The second DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Malaysia has been officially launched to fulfil the demand for an up-scale accommodation in the city centre here.

The hotel hosted a red theme cocktail reception for members of the local and international media as well as stakeholders in celebration of the launch of the brand’s second property in the country.

The cocktail reception was held at the hotel’s Tosca Italian restaurant and guests were greeted with the hotel’s signature warm chocolate chip cookie upon their arrival.

The guests were treated to some hors d’oeuvres such as goat’s cheese, onion omelette and bruschetta before munching on some grilled lamb chops, pasta, sushi and mini burgers.

Its general manager Simon McGrath said that the hotel believed that it was the little things they did that create the biggest impact and impression on their guests.

He said that the hotel chain has been baking the signature chocolate chip cookies for travellers all over the world for the past 25 years.

“Since DoubleTree by Hilton Johor Baru’s operations began in July, more than 10,000 of these cookies have been given out to our guests,” he said, adding that the hotel had an average occupancy rate of 45% weekly before the launch.

“We know that it is through our actions that we have to stand apart and our values like attentive, cheerful, flexible, thoughtful and honest inspire the entire hotel team to go beyond expected standards and provide individual touches that delight our guests,” he said.

The hotel offers 335 guest rooms and suites, including 22 apartment-style suites.
