On arrival at Sentral you may either take a taxi [fixed price] to the hotel or go up one level to the main train station. Go to the LRT [look for KJ15 KL Sentral] and from the self service kiosks, choose the Kelana Jaya [red] line. Purchase your token for Ampang Park. Tap your token on the auto access gates and go up the escalator to your right [going to Gombak]. On arrival at Ampang Park insert your token into the slot in the auto access gate and go to the LEFT [follow the signs to the Intercontinental]. DO NOT GO TO THE RIGHT EVEN ALTHOUGH THE SIGNS TO THE DOUBLETREE POINT CURRENTLY IN THIS DIRECTION. When you reach the street level go straight ahead to the overhead walkway and up the escalators. Follow the walkway into the Intermark, turn to your left and down the stairs and follow the signs to the hotel lobby - which is on your right.

During your stay in KL please ensure that on at least one ocassion you visit KLCC by night. If youre feeling fit its a ten minute walk or just one stop via the subway. From 7.30 - 8.00 pm, the water fountains in front of the Suria shopping mall are choreographed with a brilliant light and with the Petronas Twin Towers as a backdrop, it really is magnificent. KLCC also provides a jogging track around its perimeter. Suria offers a range of fine dining options on both the ground and the fourth floor. For the more budget conscious, there are two food halls on the second and fourth floor. However, if its amber fluid that you're in need of, head over to the aquarium [or follow the concourse on the Lower Ground floor of the Suria] up onto the covered walkway to Bukit Bintang. The walkway concludes at the Pavilion shopping complex where you will be greeted by a number of food establishments including Malones and a German ale house. This is the up-market shopping centre of KL.
