DoubleTree by Hilton, part of Hilton Worldwide, will debut in Shah Alam with the opening of DoubleTree by Hilton @ i-City in 2019.
Lim said the Hilton group had recognised Shah Alam as one of the growth centres in the Klang Valley.
He said the hotel, to be managed by Hilton Worldwide, would set a benchmark for luxury hotels in Shah Alam.
It would have the first of its kind 360-degree LED Digital Canvas, he said.
“It will transform the MICE (meetings, incentives, convention, exhibitions) scene with the property’s game-changing event space which will feature 360-degree LED Digital Canvas in its grand Ballroom,” said Lim.
Designed as a statement to inculcate a sleek-and-chic corporate concept, the DoubleTree by Hilton @ i-City incorporates smart-city elements.
The hotel will be equipped with state-of-the-art technology, such as the guest room management system, to efficiently and centrally manage guestroom energy consumption and services at the room as part of i-City’s efforts to drive environmental sustainability initiatives while providing better guests experience.
“As guests enter the room, a door contact system will be activated where upon detection of body temperature, the entrance mood lightings will be switched on and the room curtains will automatically open to welcome them with a spectacular view of the i-City skyline,” said Lim.
A future development slated for launch in the second quarter of this year is a 19-storey 204-unit fully-furnished residential tower, sited above DoubleTree by Hilton @ i-City.
The tower will be called Converse @ i-City, given its integration of Internet of Things functionalities.
The gross development value for Converse @ i-City is expected at around RM120 million.
