Concorde Inn Kuala Lumpur International Airport

Stay close to Sepang F1 International Circuit and three minutes away from Kuala Lumpur International Airport. The Concorde Inn features boutique-like environs, a sumptuous Poolside Snack Bar and plush deluxe rooms.

Ritz Carlton Hotel Kuala Lumpur

Embrace the peerless hospitality of the Ritz Carlton brand, at affordable rates no less, and sleep in the heart of the Bukit Bintang entertainment hub. Dine on dum sum at Li Yen Restaurant and take a short stroll to the Petronas Twin Towers.

JW Marriott Hotel Kuala Lumpur

Another Bukit Bintang gem, the JW Marriott provides enviable access to KL’s most notable retail belt. Shop ’til you drop but save some energy for the posh nightlife in the area. You just may spot a Lewis Hamilton or Michael Schumacher in the VIP lounge.

Golden Palm Tree Sea Villas & Spa

If Sepang takes off as a premier international hot spot, the Golden Palm Tree Resort will be in the eye of the proverbial storm. Slip in and out of the frenetic F1 race action with a chic oasis on the Strait of Malacca. A Maldives-like spa hotel a mere 75 minutes from Kuala Lumpur.

Pan Pacific Hotel Kuala Lumpur International Airport

Another excellent alternative that offers access not only to Sepang F1 International Circuit but Kuala Lumpur International Airport as well, the Pan Pacific is a first-class business hotel. After a long day at the track, hit the tennis court or pool and indulge in the quality spa.

Hilton Kuala Lumpur Hotel

With a phenomenal backdrop in the KL Bird Park, or Taman Burung Kuala Lumpur, and National Museum, the Hilton Hotel is a good bet to get you in the pole position for Grand Prix weekend. A trio of extraordinary wine and dine outlets in Senses, Chynna and Vintage Bank offer top-notch post-race fare and, once back in your suite, you can catch all the highlights on your 42-inch plasma screen.

Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur

For elegant and class hotel service in Asia, the name Shangri-La is ever-present. The KL outlet of the upmarket brand underwent a comprehensive reno in 2009 and boasts 662 rooms and 101 luxury suites. Close proximity to KLCC points of interest is a significant bonus but the bona fide lure at the Shangri-La is a super ensemble of restaurants, bars, spa and health club options.
