I think we already knew this..

Hotel changed hands a few times

2-Jan-2012


KUALA LUMPUR: Crowne Plaza Mutiara Kuala Lumpur is one of the five-star leading hotels in the Golden Triangle district here. Initially known as KL Hilton under the Hilton Worldwide management when it was first launched in July 1972 by the then Prime Minister the late Tun Abdul Razak Hussein.

The 35-storey hotel was renamed Mutiara Hotel in 2004 following its takeover by a new management and two years later the ownership changed hands again with its new owner Tradewinds Corporation Bhd rebranding the hotel as Crowne Plaza Mutiara.

Despite the change of management over the years, the hotel has maintained its elegant look, featuring 565 rooms and 28 meeting rooms with state-of-the-art facilities.

It was reported that the Crowne Plaza Mutiara's closure was to give way for a multi-billion redevelopment project by Tradewinds Corporation which is slated to start early this year.

The Kompleks Antarabangsa office building, which is just beside the hotel will also be demolished, for the redevelopment project.

Today is indeed the last day for the hotel.


Crowne Plaza Mutiara Kuala Lumpur bids adieu to all
By CHOONG MEK ZHIN | The Star Metro Central | Wednesday January 2, 2013
http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...75&sec=central

HUNDREDS will say goodbye to their “family” and “home” at Crowne Plaza Mutiara Kuala Lumpur, where guests will be checking out for the last time today.



The 40-plus-year-old hotel is part of several landmarks in Jalan Sultan Ismail in Kuala Lumpur that will be demolished to make way for new structures.

This announcement was made in October last year, and the hotel owner’s application for a development order was confirmed by Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL).

Pirabakaran Arumugan, 59, who has been with the hotel since it opened, was saddened by the news.

“Some people ask if I am married to this hotel. I tell them no, this place has been like a mother to me,” the VIP personal butler who is fondly known as Jason said, adding that he had helped built the hotel.

His history with the hotel began by chance when he walked the streets of Kuala Lumpur after being fired from his previous job. He was hired as a construction worker for the five-star Kuala Lumpur Hilton.

“I became an odd job worker after that, and when they found out that I could speak English, I was asked to help out at one of the hotel’s big events and I was the lift attendant.

“It was then that I met the Hilton Hotels chairman who hired me on the spot,” he said, adding that he had applied for a job there seven times prior to the offer.

Pirabakaran went on to be a busboy, waiter and finally, a personal butler, a job he cherishes and continues to do proudly until the hotel’s last day.

“My job is very enjoyable and it gives me the opportunity to meet people that one ordinarily would not be able to,” he said, adding that among the famous people he had met in the past were Richard Nixon, Muhammad Ali, Nelson Mandela, local and foreign royalties, Margaret Thatcher, Princess Margaret, Queen Elizabeth II and past Malaysian prime ministers, to name a few.

“When we heard the news that the hotel’s days were numbered, I felt grateful for every day it still stood.

“I had sleepless nights and felt lost,” he said, adding that the past few months were spent appreciating every aspect of his job at the hotel.

“I spent my time talking with guests though I had to stop after a bit as chatting with them brought me to tears. When I walk along the corridors, I sometimes run my fingers along the wall,” he said.


Rest and relax: The siwmming pool at Crowne Plaza provides a beautiful landscape for guests.

Hotel business development director Carmen Teo, who has spent nine years with the property said the hotel had cared well for her.

“It is a great place for career development, with plenty of training and learning opportunities. In fact, we have a father and son as well as husband and wife working here,” she said, adding that she had joined as the hotel’s sales and marketing manager.

Marketing communications manager Kenny Gordvyn said this was his second hotel after working for a string of corporate companies.

“Everyone knows each other and there is an open communication. Asking for help when one does not know how to do something is easy. It really is a company that looks after its own staff,” Gordvyn said.

The human resource department had in fact, organised a two-day career fair with 15 other hotels in December last year and one with the new Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur to help the 470-strong staff find new jobs.

“We even have staff members who will be moving to Dubai, Hong Kong and Singapore after this,” Teo added.

All three will most likely move on to other hotels though in Teo and Pirabakaran’s case, they may just opt for a break.

“I have already been offered jobs by a few hotels but I think I may need to take a short break so I can get over Crowne Plaza before moving on,” Pirabakaran, who had also won the Grand Superstar Award from the Malaysian Association of Hotels KL Chapter in April 2011 for services above and beyond.



RM6bil Tradewinds Centre to replace hotel
The Star Metro Central | Wednesday January 2, 2013
http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.as...42&sec=central

SEVEN years from now, a new landmark — Tradewinds Centre — will take over the site currently home to Crowne Plaza Mutiara Kuala Lumpur and Kompleks Antarabangsa, located on Jalan Sultan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur.


Iconic landmark: Photographs of Kuala Lumpur Hilton in the 1970s

The older of the two, Crowne Plaza, was built in the late 1960s and owned by Pernas International Holdings Bhd, which entered into a mutual agreement with Hilton International Company to manage the property.

The first Kuala Lumpur Hilton was maintained until March 31 in 2001 when the hotel was rebranded to Mutiara Kuala Lumpur and managed by Pernas Hotel Management Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pernas.

Sometime around 2004, Trade-winds Corp Bhd — formerly Pernas International Holdings Bhd, announced the appointment of Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG) to manage the hotel.

The change in management came with a change in brand too and the hotel then became known as Crowne Plaza Mutiara Kuala Lumpur.

The five-star hotel boasts 559 guest rooms and 28 meeting rooms, and its key attraction includes its proximity to KLCC and the Bukit Bintang shopping district.

It was reported that Tradewinds Centre is a RM6bil mixed development project consisting of Grade A+ offices, retail offices and serviced apartments within four towers and a retail podium.
