The hotels managed by Penang Hotel Collection (PHC) is fast becoming our favourite chain. The last time we stayed at their Hutton Central Hotel we enjoyed it immensely. Everything about the hotel was amazing, from the room's furniture, fixtures, and fittings to its location.
Alas Hutton Central did not have two-bedroom units, so when we arrived to check in, we were told that we had been booked at Hutton Suites instead just a stone's throw away. Location-wise this hotel is even more strategically placed mere metres away from Jalan Penang and within walking distance of all our favourite areas in Georgetown.
Most times the price listed was quite steep, so we were in luck on this particular occasion since we managed to book a 5-night stay for only RM1,396.30 (approximately USD/EUR313) which came to about RM280 a night (approximately USD/EUR63).
The unit room we booked again satisfied all our needs and was in fact an exceptionally large two-bedroom apartment complete with a kitchenette and washer dryer. The bathroom was well appointed, the living room cosy and our bedroom comfortable. Brendan's room was a little small but adequate enough for his needs. It looked increasing likely that both Hutton Central and Hutton Suites (if Brendan is with us) will be our default accommodation for all future trips to Penang.
The only downside was that it could get quite noisy at night since there was a bar downstairs with karaoke. Oh well, when life serves us lemons we take the noisy rendition of Canto-pop songs to be our very own sweet lullaby.
Lastly, we feel that it is our civic duty to remind everyone that while masks are now optional outdoors, it is still mandatory indoors!
