* One World Hotel , Petaling Jaya

One World Hotel is a 5 star hotel with a great location (especially for die-hard shoppers) as it adjoins a huge shopping mall.
1-Utama Shopping Center which spans over 5 million sq ft and with over 600 shops is actually the largest shopping mall in Malaysia and the 4th largest in the world. This shopping centre has almost something for everyone from shopping, dining, and entertainment to nature, 2 cinema complexes, 36-lane bowling alley and Asia's largest indoor rock climbing gym.
If this is reason enough, then One World Hotel may be a good choice for you.
This hotel is 20-storey high and has 438 rooms and suites.

This is 1-Utama Shopping Mall a place where one can spend the whole day and not get bored as there are so many things to do, to see and to eat. 
This is the main entrance into the hotel. Parking is free if you drive. 
The hotel lobby is very spacious and there was a hive of activities here during my stay. The occupancy rate is usually high.
 These huge chandeliers certainly add grandeur to the lobby area.
The reception area.
These stairs lead to the first floor where all the convention and conference rooms are located. This hotel is recently named "Best Convention Hotel" in Malaysia & Asia Pacific year 2012. 
This is the hallway where the lifts are located. For security, you will need to use your room card to access the floor you are staying.
We stayed on the 18th floor. The hallway to our room is brightly lit and there is soft built-in music whole day round.
We stayed in Executive Deluxe Room which measured 430 sq ft.

Another nice place to hang out is the lower lobby (The concourse). This area is designed to include some nice water features.  
There are also a few lounges in the concourse.

Our stay comes with breakfast  at "Cinnamon Restaurant" which is also located on the lower lobby floor.
The Cinnamon has a stylish design with cute-looking glass balls hanging from the ceiling.
Breakfast cuisines are served in style. The food station are well spread with a big variety to choose from. The service is simply excellent. 
The food station are constantly kept neat and by restaurant staffs who are also quick to replenish finished food items.
Tried the chawanmushi, cold noodles, the grilled sea bass, the pizza and egg-seaweed roll which are all excellent.
There is a choice to sit in the garden terrace if you prefer al fresco dining.
There are many interesting corners within the hotel. There is a garden just outside the lower lobby floor.
There are lounges here and there.
 1-Utama Shopping Mall is directly connected to the hotel on the first floor.
  At the linking point between the hotel and the mall.
There are 6 floors in the shopping mall but what you see is not all as there are many wings branching out from here. A couple of hours may not be enough to finish exploring all that the mall has to offer.
endless fashion retails...
Unique looking restaurant..
