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.
As it was just launched, everything was clean and new. The lobby looks great and pleasant. Smooth encounter at the front desk and we get our keys to our room.
The first impression is a “wah”. The air-con was turn ON to welcome our arrival. It was very thoughtful especially in these HOT days. The room was clean and comfy.
As for facilities in the hotel, it has a small pool, a walkway which allow us to view the whole Icon City, a gym and sauna (was under final touch of upgrade as of now).
As for dining, it has two dining places. One is the more to coffee and cakes, called the Crumbles and Cream; the other was named MEZZA9, which served buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner.
We indulged a bit by spending at the buffet dinner, since we have the buy one free one voucher. Original price at RM78++
It was a pleasant place to spend for family holidays. It is suitable too for business purpose as the location is close to industrial park.
