Penang Bridge Marathon: Looking For A Hotel?
For those planning to stay near the PG Bridge, the following listed here www.penang-hotels.com/airport.htm are excellent choices. Of course, the Equatorial is a 4/5 star hotel, so expect to pay the price but the other 2 are pretty OK as well. If you crave for a spot nearer town where the post-race food fiesta is, do seriously consider the excellent Gurney Hotel. I stayed there the night before my wedding and it's really a great place - good location fronting the Gurney Drive where you can do you last minute warmups, or your morn/evening walks, some happening party outlets just next to the hotel lobby and more. It's a short drive into town and to the beaches too. Though the price is about RM250, one suite can easily take in 4 persons while the larger 2 bedroom unit can take and additional 2 pax if you want to rough it out a bit.
