Rated 4 out of 5 by Folly Room for improvement
Unfortunately we stayed in the hotel during the end of Ramadan. The Essence restaurant was booked out days in advance by locals. This left the Italian and Japanese restaurant. We would have preferred to eat Malaysian but did not feel comfortable being the only whites. Further there seemed to be no middle class Malaysian restaurants near by and if there had been they too would have been booked out for Ramadan. So what do we do for an evening meal if we want Malaysian food?
The Club was very good and we enjoyed that.
There was no service at the pool. No-one in the pool bar and no-one walking around. We were there at the pool for 1.5 hours.
Generally staff were very helpful and friendly. The TV reception in our room was poor but we didn't ask for it to be fixed. Also despite trying, and ringing reception we could not work out how to retrieve a telephone message on our telephone.
We had come to do shopping. The Concierge was very helpful in this regard. At first we were suggested to use the monorail. Its only advantage is that it is cheap.Taxis too are cheap and I would suggest quicker at times. It took us a day to gather courage to use taxis after reading on-line reviews, but there was no problem with taxis and we would suggest using them as long as you have your wits about you.

As SPG gold and being a Malaysian, shameful to say this is the worst SPG I have ever stayed and the reason to stay is being our corporate chosen hotel. First, I never feel like a SPG gold member as I have in other SPG props, but that is small matter. The worst thing is the arrangement of transport, I was asking to reserve me a taxi to nearby but they said their taxi is not by meter, have to charge me RM40 for 3km, come on, I am Malaysian. At the end when I boarded the taxi, the taxi in fact was going by meter ??? Also when I reserve a taxi to airport at 1015am, I finished check out exactly 1014am and walked out the hotel, they are many staffs, yes, many but idling. No one came to me to ask what do I need where I expected a taxi should be there waiting for me, ok, I talked to one of the looked like concierge staff (by the way many idling mans are wearing different uniform) that I have pre-arranged a taxi, and he was asking me by cash or? I told him I have pre-booked and inform the staff charged to room and I already checked out and was paid! Then he suddenly went and found the file, then start calling a taxi from the pool. Very disappointed, heart broken being a Malaysian.

Every thing was perfect except, perhaps, the view on the Petronas Tower which is now partly blocked by new constructions.

Dear Sir ,
I am glad that the service standard has improved ten fold . My last visit was a great disappointed when I didn't manage to get my water supply to my tub . This led to the GM offering me a cook book and a compensation award of 5,000 SPG . Both I have not received though
I actually moved to Meridien the last few months but I always love the Homey ambience of Sheraton Imperial . I hope to return for more stays
Please keep up the good work

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bala01 Latest stay
We have stayed at this hotel many times in the last 15 years & there is one recurring theme - the hotel is badly in need of renovation. The room décor is looking very tired indeed. Our latest experience shows door handles falling off, bathroom taps leaking at the mains, the TV system is a shambles throughout the hotel (it takes many minutes of hit & miss before you can get a channel of your choice as the TV does not respond to the remote control), a very irritating phenomenon of having to re-connect your mobile phone or laptop every time you want to log into the Wi-Fi system (depending on whether you are in the lobby, buy the pool, in your room or in the Club Lounge) - in other words, there is no centralized I-Fi system for the whole hotel unlike most other hotels in the World. The positive aspects are that the staff are very friendly & helpful (as most Malaysians are), the food is good if a touch repetitive & the familiar surroundings do help. Mr Derrick deserves a special mention for all his help in making our stay comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Windsong An excellent place to stay
We found all aspects, staff and facilities of the Sheraton Imperial, to be of an exceptional high standard; we have no hesitation to recommend this hotel to others. We would like to commend the following staff members:
Concierge - Faisal - his response and attention to detail when providing information and problem solving was excellent and reassuring to us.
Doorman - Hisimail - his response, advice and personal attention to us was excellent
Door Greeter - Tasa - an asset to the hotel, he is a wealth of quality information; he responded with cheerful and meaningful advice when we left and returned to the hotel and later on our departure his advice meant we left the hotel in a relaxed and calm manner
Breakfast waitress - Siti - always cheerful and obliging
