EQ is the latest milestone in the saga of one of Kuala Lumpur’s most iconic hospitality names. The original Hotel Equatorial opened in 1973, and quickly gained an international reputation as a premier five-star destination. Hotel Equatorial closed its doors in 2012 to make way for a bigger, better, all-new successor. Seven years later, a magnificent new 52-storey tower has taken its place, and with it a new name, reflecting a new era in sophisticated urban accommodation. Situated in the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s famed Golden Triangle, EQ is the centrepiece of the new Equatorial Plaza, downtown’s prestigious new business address.
EQ’s 440 Guestrooms and Suites are all luxuriously appointed and feature impressive city views from every vantage point.
The Infinity Pool and Sky51 on the 51st Floor are sure to be the talk of the town. And EQ will also feature a bespoke spa & wellness centre.
EQ is also re-introducing another fine tradition as a culinary hub for both fine and casual dining, offering six restaurants and bars, including the return of the multi-award winning Kampachi Japanese restaurant.
Business functions and special events are another EQ forte, featuring ten meeting and banquet rooms. And to make any special event truly shine, there is the imposing 1,025 sq. metres Diamond Ballroom and Gallery.
EQ's prime location in the heart of Kuala Lumpur means you are an easy walk away from the Golden Triangle's most popular attractions. Whether it's shopping, sightseeing, restaurants or nightlife, everything is conveniently close-by. To get around even quicker, the easiest option is by KL Monorail. The station is minutes away via covered walkway, and connects you to the city's entire light rail network (rapid KL)
