[REVIEW] Weekend Staycation at Hotel Stripes Kuala Lumpur Autograph Collection

A weekend well-spent brings a week of content! Personally, what I look forward the most is a chillax weekend where I can: 

❤ Wake up to the comfort of plush, velvety pillows
❤ Enjoy a morning swim in the infinity pool
❤ Brunch in style at a fine restaurant
❤ Have a quick afternoon workout at the fitness center
❤ Tuck into a sumptuous rooftop dinner amidst the city skyline
❤ Hit a rooftop bar for the unobstructed views of downtown KL

It is a dream come true for me as my weekend is made perfect throughout my
2D1N staycation at Hotel Stripes Kuala Lumpur Autograph Collection (Hotel Stripes). 

What makes Hotel Stripes stand out in the ever expanding hospitality scene in the city is the distinctive vibe and contemporary chic character it exudes as part of the Autograph Collection Hotels. From the award-winning architecture and rooftop pool to the exquisite culinary offerings and impeccable services, Hotel Stripes has wowed me in every aspect. 

Studio Room at Hotel Stripes Kuala Lumpur Autograph Collection 

Among the types of bespoke rooms and suites, we opt for Studio, a spacious 409-sqft room which features a palette of warm tones and timeless layout which makes it suitable for both business and leisure stay. 

Our room is bestowed with the beautiful view of the magnificent KL Tower.

While the room is well-furnished with a king bed, sofa bed, 46-inch TV and other modern amenities, the seamless high-speed complimentary Wi-Fi is also worth a mention (Otherwise, you wouldn't be able to see my IG stories throughout the stay :P). 

Perhaps it is just me being particular with nitty gritty things such as the lighted makeup mirror, robes, slippers, etc, but all these little details add up to the maximum comfort and convenience I'd love to enjoy in a hotel. Thumbs up to Hotel Stripes for the quality and exceptional attention to details. 

"We Grill, You Chill" Sizzling Dinner @ Brasserie 25
RM120+ for two
Fridays and Saturdays
Two seatings available: 6pm–8pm & 8.15pm–10.15pm 

For dinner, we have decided to dine in-house as they are having a BBQ dinner set promo. What's included? Bottomless mocktails, a barbeque selection of meats and vegetables complemented with homemade sauces, and British-inspired dessert. All we need to do is chill while the experts grill our sizzling meats and prepare our barbecue combos at Brasserie 25. 

Bottomless Downtown Fizz Mocktail - Brasserie 25's iconic welcome drink
made with jasmine, lychee and Kickapoo soda.

When the aromatic array of sizzling treats is served upon us, we are totally blown away by the sizeable portion and variety which can easily feed 3. 

The hearty and protein-packed platter features tender black pepper beef ribs, grilled lamb, crispy fried chickens, chilli dogs, and fish and chips. For the sides, the menu includes slightly charred vegetable kebabs, grilled corn, salads in jars, crispy thin fries, onion rings and toasted garlic bread. I am sure even the most picky eater can find something they like from this platter. 

While the juicy meats are already bursting in flavours, I don't mind pairing them with the bespoke condiments such as salt in various flavours (lemon, basil and chilli) as well as homemade curry mayo, chimichurri, traditional BBQ sauce and an Asian-inspired sauce reminiscent of our favourite satay peanut sauce. Perfect to excite the palate with an added twist of flavours!

Bread and butter pudding topped with vanilla ice-cream makes the perfect ending to our dinner. 

Do check out the Looongest Hour promotion where the house beer and wine are at a one-for-one deal!

Cocktail Time @ Man Tao Bar 

After dinner, we head up to Man Tao, the nook-inspired rooftop bar at Hotel Stripes, to enjoy a panoramic view of downtown KL creative cocktails, soothing tunes and easy going vibes. It can get a little busy up here, so head up early to get the best spot. What a relaxing experience to complete our urban escape!

American Breakfast Set @ Brasserie 25

After a good night rest, the next thing I want to do is to tuck into a hearty breakfast amidst the cozy and relaxing ambience at Brasserie 25. There are few breakfast set options available on menu, and we opt for something western to fuel the day. 

Rooftop Infinity Pool with a breathtaking view of the city 

Before heading home, a morning swim at the rooftop pool overlooking Kuala Lumpur’s 
dazzling skyline is definitely a must-do! 

Fitness Center of Hotel Stripes - Clean, well-equipped and spacious for guests. 

Throughout the weekend stay, the in-house facilities be it the gym, pool or dining establishments had provided us a complete experience without having to step out of the hotel at all. But if you like, the local attractions such as street food, art galleries, shops, markets and legendary landmarks are just a stone throw away. How convenient it is to explore this vibrant city! 

VERDICT
If you are looking for a quality stay with topnotch experience be it the comfortable room, delicious BBQ dinner or relaxing swim at the rooftop pool, Hotel Stripes Kuala Lumpur Autograph Collection is definitely something you can consider. 

Personally, my experience here is nothing short of comfort, uniqueness and excellent service. Hotel Stripes tops my list of favourite spots for weekend getaways in KL. 

Highly recommended for leisure stay, business trip, or any special occasions.
