Best Western International has announced the signing of a management contract for a major new upscale hotel and convention center in Malaysia.
This week, the hotel group formed a partnership with Sabanilam Enterprise Sdn Bhd for the management of a brand new BEST WESTERN PLUS hotel and conference facility at the ITCC Penampang complex - a 10.5-hectare mixed-use development that is taking shape in Kota Kinabalu, the capital of Malaysia’s Sabah state.
The new BEST WESTERN PLUS hotel will include 330 upscale guest rooms, ranging from 27 to 49m² and all including comfortable bedding, spacious bathrooms and such modern amenities as flat-screen TVs and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi.
The hotel will also offer a wealth of facilities for both business and leisure travelers, including restaurants, a swimming pool, fitness center, business center and meeting rooms.
And the management contract will also see Best Western take control of a major new convention center connected to the hotel. This modern facility will include a large ballroom capable of housing 170 tables, and is set to become a new hub for local and regional conferences, corporate events, product launches and weddings.
For the added convenience of guests, the hotel and convention center will be directly connected to the ITCC’s four-story retail podium and Grade A office tower and residence.
BEST WESTERN PLUS at ITCC Penampang is expected to open in 2016.
