The Bald Thoughts
It’s always exciting when a new Kimpton location is announced. I haven’t been to Kuala Lumpur yet, so the grand opening of the Kimpton Kuala Lumpur might be a great reason for my first visit. The Exchange TRX sounds like an incredible entertainment and shopping mecca and I couldn’t think of a better hotel brand to be in the middle of it all than Kimpton.
Are you excited about this new Kimpton hotel? Will you visit it when it opens in three years? I sure would love to.
