"Stayed: 2 Night, Sky Terrace Suite Thumbs up: Chris meeting us upon arrival at the lobby & gave us speedy check in. Ensuring us for a room as we were early. Went for lunch & chris met us at the hotel’s restaurant( makan kitchen) personally to pass the room cards to us ensuring everything is all ready. Shanaka: for always checking up on my partner & i. Asking about the quality of the food & remembered that we didnt finished our nasi goreng even asked if there was something wrong. Went the extra miles to find a florist near the hotel that i could arrange for flower delivery for my partner. Beautiful room, nice view. Warm staffs from start to end. Truly a DoubleTree standard. The best DoubleTree in Malaysia. Staffs from JB & KL should learn from Penang as staffs here are way more warmer & friendlier. "

"Had a wonderful stay here in the newest trendy hotel in Penang. First impression was splendid as we were greeted at the lobby and shown the way to the reception on level 11. Why was the reception located at such a high level, you ask? Why, to take our breaths away with the glorious seaview, of course. The pool area was huge and airy, almost wanted to sleep there and forget about the room! But what a room it was! Spacious, elegantly designed with comfort at the top of their priority. Water pressure was great, amenities well provided, perfect room temperature and a wide window to let us further appreciate the beauty of Penang. Staff were so helpful and friendly, always checking in to see that our needs were met, engaging in conversation, made us feel very welcomed! Breakfast spread was excellent, food still hot and freshly prepared despite our lateness in waking. Again, the F&B staff were so attentive and friendly. Couldn't have enjoyed myself more! Highly recommended!"

"This is a very good hotel. I love everything about it - its central location, the wonderful staff, the hardware (nice rooms), the non-smoking policy, the local food and taxi stand right outside the hotel, the free CAT bus you can catch at Komtar... Sunway Hotel has a non-smoking policy, though in reality there is 1 floor that allows smoking. The management could take the stand of disallowing smoking totally and make Sunway one of the very few hotels in Penang that does not allow indoor smoking. If guests are found to smoke in their rooms, the management should take strict action and insist that the guests abide by the non-smoking policy (or checkout), and verify that the misconduct is not repeated. Sunway has very nice hardware; the rooms are renovated and look new and pleasant. Coupled with a non-smoking policy and enforcement, it should appeal to contemporary travellers. The staff was very friendly, helpful and customer-oriented. I did not find any hotel employee who was lacking in service. For the other reviewers who rated them negatively, I think you need to remember that it takes two hands to clap; if you smile and ask them nicely, they will reciprocate in like manner. I thought their service was excellent. Extra info on the taxi fares - RM45 from the airport if you purchase a coupon from the airport limo counter outside the airport terminal; RM40 to the airport if you just take a taxi outside the hotel. I am a contented customer and will definitely stay at Sunway Hotel again for my next visit to Penang."

"The Prestige, a newly hotel in Penang Island. The design for the hotel is incredible. From the lobby through the elevator and corridor to the room, each spot is exceptionally modern beauty design. The glasshouse cafe or restaurant where you can enjoy your welcome drink and breakfast here, the decor is really beauty and comfort. You can sit and enjoy your foods, chatting with others, taking selfie and it really felt warm. The hotel's breakfast is varied and delicious. The room is very special and nice decor, the water pressure is strong and shower in the bathroom is very comfortable. Even they provided high quality toiletries. There are many hidden light in the room, you can switch the feeling you want according to your preferences. A big screen Smart Tv is available in the room where you can listen songs or watch movies through Youtube. Beside that, the wifi is good too. I always seek for an extraordinary style for my vacation, and this really let me feel so great with overall."
