A hearty congratulation to IHG Hotels & Resorts for the official launch of the first Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Malaysia. This Express & Suites is the first of its kind and it is located in the bustling city of Johor Bahru.
 
It is strategically located in the town where MICE and business travelers will appreciate the convenience that this hotel can offer as it is in close proximity to the commercial parks, the Persada Convention Centre, and the key government offices like KWSP and UTC. Johor Bahru has gained traction as a hub of "Iskandar Malaysia" which is the southern economic corridor that earn-marked for economic expansion.

Furthermore, Senai International Airport is just 30-minutes drive away and this making it a perfect choice for jet-setters and if you would like to add Singapore into your traveling itinerary, the Woodlands Checkpoint and the upcoming Singapore - Johor Bahru Rapid Transit System (RTS) are both close by to the hotel. 
 
This contemporary hotel will be championing its brand's "Simple, Smart Travel" philosophy and they strongly believe that this will set to be the first choice for guests that travel to Johor Bahru. It is perfect for savvy travelers that are seeking for a simple yet engaging place to rest, recharge and get a little work to be done, too!

This is made possible when Holiday Inn Express makes travel so simple so that guests can be there when they want and need to be there, whether it is for business or leisure trip purposes.

Now, Holiday Inn Express & Suites is officially opened to the public. Let us explore the hotel facilities and the comfort that this hotel can offer to us during our staycation journey.
 

Holiday Inn Express & Suites Guest Rooms 

There are a total of 203-room with new and refreshed offerings that were created with comfort in mind where each room offers more of what matters the most, especially a great night's sleep with comfortable beds. 
 
The room options available here are Standard Queen or Twin Beds Room or suite with options of One (1) or Two (2) Bedroom Suite that suit your preference and needs depending on the number of travelers for your trip. As we were traveling in a group, we had the opportunity to experience the staycation in both the Twin Bed Room and Two (2) Bedroom Suite.

Standard Twin Bed Room
 
In the room, you can choose the pillow that suits your preference, either you go for the soft or firm pillow with a plushy duvet. Most importantly, there are plenty of bedside power outlets available for you to charge your phone, electronic devices, powering up your laptop for work and even a covered one at the sink for safety purpose near the sink. How brilliant and mindful it is when they designed the room setup.

During my stay, I am still Working From Home but on that special day, I am actually Working From Hotel. The table size is just enough for me to place my 15.6" laptop and space to move my mouse around. Each stay in this hotel comes with a high-speed complementary WiFi that I can use without any connection interruptions. 
 
Besides the workstation available in the room, you can also work from the hotel lobby where the area is pretty much conducive as it is equipped with plenty of power socket outlets, comfortable seating area suitable for you to hangout with family and friends or chit-chatting with your business partners.

The room also comes with an attached bathroom which is really spacious and what attracted me the most is the body wash and shampoo brand that used by this hotel. It is my all-time favourite brand too, none other but Dove. The scents are so pleasant and really make my day after taking shower. Oh yes, even the handwash is using the same brand too!

Attached Bathroom In The Room But Separated Between Shower And Toilet

The sink is located outside of the toilet and makes it so convenient especially for us to get ready without delaying others to take bath or need to do an "urgent" personal business. You know what I meant, right? It has a huge mirror and enough room to place all personal care products on it.

Didn't bring a hair dryer with you? No problem, because there is one provided in the room.
 
There is also a safety box available for you to keep all your valuable belongings while you are away from the room. Other than that, you can enjoy a cup of tea/coffee as complete set of tea or coffee maker is provided, make sure to stay hydrated all day long with the complimentary bottled drinking water, keep your item chilled with the refrigerator and be entertained with the 32-inch LCD TV with various channel up to 15 options available.

24-Hour Fitness Centre
 
If you are a gym rat and you cannot skip your daily routine, no worries too because there is a 24-Hour Fitness Centre available that is well equipped and enough for your basic workout. 
 
As the room did not have the iron and ironing board, it does not mean that these items are not provided. Do visit the 24-Hour Laundromat Room at your convenience as you can do your ironing task here with two units of iron and ironing board ready to be used.
 
On top of that, you can perform your daily laundry while staying here as there is a vending washer and dryer machine available, so you can eliminate the need to bring dirty clothes with you while traveling to your next destination.
