I have never heard of Iconic Hotel Penang. By sheer luck, when I was strolling at Paragon Mall, a promoter came by, and wanted us to join them for a play game and win free hotel stay event.

Without hesitation, we proceed to the event area and follow their game plan. After the game, the organizer was kind to us, maybe due to baby Gabriel was with us, they let us draw the prizes 2 times, and one of the prizes was a complimentary hotel stay for 2 days 1 night.

Then, we found out that the Hotel actually has official launching on 21st June 2016, and since 22nd June was a public holiday in Malaysia, we decided to utilize the voucher on 22nd June.
