The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia / Asia

The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur incorporates the earlier Hotel Majestic, built-in 1932 as an icon of Malaya’s boom years, where prominent international visitors stayed, where government receptions were held, and where many important social occasions took place.  The earlier hotel was built in neo-classical and art deco style, by the Dutch architectural firm, Keyes and Dowdeswell for the Trustees of the estate of Loke Wan Tho (youngest son of Loke Yew, businessman and philanthropist).  It was the first hotel with hot and cold water, and showers and baths in some rooms.  There was a roof garden with a dance floor and seating for 350.  By the 1970s the hotel was in decline and it closed in 1983, serving instead as the National Art Gallery between 1984 and 1998.  It was then restored as a hotel by YTL Hotels.  

The earlier hotel now contains the Majestic Wing with 47 luxurious suites, while the new Tower Wing has 253 guest bedrooms.
